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.

Tartish, light fruit and hints of barnyard in the aroma. Quite a bit of tartness and finishing dryness that gives a sweet impression. Not a lot of fruit or anything else, but a nice, tart refreshing geuze. A good beginners geuze, but that’s probably where I’m at right now. Love it.

domtom (65) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 30, 2002
Cloudy with a nice foam. Aroma of mostard. The flavour is quite aggressiv, tart and spicy. The finish is long and acid. A spiced beer with much character.

Indra (2625) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 26, 2002
Nice yeasty, tart, but also somehow soft aroma, some woodiness. Deep golden/light amber in cast, with abundant lacing, head and effervescence. Mostly tart flavor, with some citrus, wood, wheat, spiciness and even a light grassiness (hay). Finish is very dry, body is light and lightly acidic. Tasty, especially once you get about halfway into the bottle.

Yellow orange in color, virtually no head.A simple beer that is tart but not really overly sour

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 6, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 Clear & golden topped with a thin yet firm lather..an aroma of guezish barnyards and leather, mildew and sweat...skizzy barnyards in flavor, with mildew, dryness, and stale notes dancing on a wooden floor..acidically mellow said the horse to his skin...

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - DEC 6, 2002
Starts with horse blaket, citric acid, a little barnyard, and a Creamy fisheyed head. Glowing yellow orange honey color. New oak, lemon, mellowing malts, and a "just sharp enough" citric acid quality to make this a very deceptive brew.

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2002
Wham, bang, sour! Nose is wonderful--lemony notes mix with freshly cut green grass and oregano and pepper. Flavor is just too overwhelmingly tart for me to appreciate. Literally like sucking a lemon, though there are some spicy notes kicked in to the equation. My wife, a lover of sour and sweet things, loves it however. Perhaps just not suited to my palate.

2001: Apple and plums with sugar caramel tones. Sour through and through. Decent but not one of the better gueuzes.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2003 Best before 2022 (1999-2000 vintage). Old rating 3.3: [This definatley needs more time in the cellar. It tastes very fresh and sour and is not very developed or complex. I've got eight bottles of these, which I won't drink until they are more mature. I'll be back on this one in a couple of years.] New rating 4.1: Very woody and mature. Sour, but not too sour. Refreshing.
