COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oude Geuze Boon is one of the finest examples of the traditional 100% spontaneous fermentation Lambic style. To moderate the sourness, Boon Brewery only brews Lambic in the 7 cold months, from early October until April, according to the traditional "turbid mash" system. This Lambic beer is aged for 1, 2 or 3 years in oak casks. The blend, a mild average 18 months old Lambic (unsweetened, unfiltered, unpasteurised) is refermented in the bottle and can be stored up to 20 years. Brewed in Lembeek, the village that gave Lambic its name. Awards at the World Beer Championships: 2008 Gold, 2010 Silver, 2012 Gold Medal.

The beer pours to a hazy coppery golden body with a nice white head and awesome lacing. The aroma is pretty awesome too. Sour, tart, acidic, funky cheese (aged Brie, Blue, and aged Havarti). The flavor is sour, tart, and acidic. Nicely blended but thereís nothing really super outstanding. The palate is tart and acidic. Not as sour or as complex as I want in a gueuze.

larsga (7077) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2011 Huge white lasting head. Hazy deep yellow body with slow carbonation. Deep waxy barnyard aroma with wooden floral marzipan notes. Clean and fresh. Strong dry-acidic wooden floral apple taste with barnyard metal notes. Mid-bodied. Sharp mouthfeel, slightly fizzy. Sharply dry herbal wooden floral aftertaste with barnyard and mineral notes. Highly unusual, and a much fuller-bodied geuze than the norm. I found it very drinkable. (0.375l bottle, Beer Palace, Oslo. Rated it in 2007, too, but didnít understand it at all back then.)

KnutAlbert (6591) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2007
75 cl bottle. Full creamy head on top of a golden cloudy beer. Sourness, sure, but also a round fruitiness. Oaky finsih, very dry. Nice stuff.

thebeertourist (5169) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2007
75 cl bottle. Cloudy amber colour, fine white head. Lemony nose, hints of cheese. Woody flavours, lemons, ending very dry. Fizzy, with a medium body. Rich and complex as you would expect an oude geuze.

drewbeerme (3915) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2007
355ml, date is unknown but i found this on clearance for $3.99! pours clear pale-copper with white head. nose is lots of vinegar, flowers, faint rotton egg, and some barnyard funk. flavor is rather unrefined, a watered down sourness taste at first, brett, earthy, and finishes mildly sweet and dry. mouthfeel is full and carbination is high. alcohol isnít noticed. the nose and flavor just isnít very good. although this did the job of taking care of this geueze craving i had all day (it is tasty), this is really on the bottom end of the wonderful world of geueze. Iíll age the other ones i bought on clearance for 4-10 years.

As I try to get into the world of lambics, this one has been the most tolerable for me. The cork popped just like a champagne bottle. Sour and funky as the rest of lambics usually are. Iíll eventually find my way.

Sour citrus nose with slight barnyard must, hazy orange straw body. Sourness comes through to the taste but not as full on, more fruit flavours and a dry finish.

mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2007
bottle: pours an orangy hay colour with a large fluffy white head. aroma is sour almost a little skunky, aroma also of unripe apples, but a little sweetness too. the flavour is a little thin and weak a small amount of soue apple flavour with a little sweetness. finishes quick and with hardly any drying. i love gueze and this seems sub-par and lacking alot of the strong qualities like in gueze.

355 ml bottle. I have tried several lambics and generally have liked them, but had not yet sampled a geuze. I saw this one at Whole Foods Market and decided to give it a shot. The cork flies out of the bottle similar to champagne. Lively pour with a dull gold body and a large white head with decent lacing. Sour, kind of funky aroma that was not pleasant, but not entirely unpleasant either. The flavor did nothing for me; sour (which I normally like), but also salty (which I do not like). There was also a weird taste that I could not put my finger on and can best describe as wet dog. I did not detect any fruit flavors. SInce this beer has a decent overall rating, Iím assuming geuze is not a style I care for, although I am glad I tried it for the experince.
