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.

JohnnyJ (5295) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 25, 2006
03 bottle. Poured a hazy orange with white head. Aroma of barn, funk, and some wood. This is my first gueuze. Tastes very acidic and tart. Flavors of funky old barn and cheese, herbal notes, lemon, and some sweetness. Dry and sour. Probably because of my inexperience with this style I found it fairly hard to drink.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2006
UPDATED: APR 25, 2007 Cloudy orange-copper body with a large white head. Pleasant aroma of old barn & old wood. Taste is a bit of a letdown. Red apples, some hay and even a light cardboard note. Medium acidity and medium sourness. Some unwanted (to me) sweetness seems to attenuate everything. Unusually soft body for the style. A soft and mellow gueuze for the masses. Lacks the aggressiveness of other gueuzes, but then it would be a Goon Gueuze.

sayravai (4706) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 22, 2006
(Bottled) Hazy golden color with a medium, bubbly but lasting head. Almost sweetish, fruity-earthy aroma. Fruity, very acidic, moderately tart and dry flavor with wheat and hints of honey. Dry and acidic, but also a bit syrupy palate with lively carbonation. A quite easy but balanced gueuze. Too acidic for me, but yeast makes it much smoother and more enjoyable.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 21, 2006
500 ml bottle, from BevMo LaJolla. Pours medium amber, slightly hazy with a fluffy white head. Dry and champagney aroma, wet wool, along with herbal and floral notes - like a damp, flower speckled hillside in Golden Gate park. Astringent and puckering, funky with sour fruits, little to no residual sugars, lemon peel, cedar bark, quince and bitter herbs. Light body and tingly carbonation.

Hansen (8248) - Assentoft, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2006
Gueuze is still hard to rate. I dont know if I like them or not. They are too special. Looking great, amber, a bit unclear, big white head, big bobbles, lasting and lacing. Sulfur and acetic acid is real preasent in the aroma, sharp. Flavor is bitter, no sweetness to mildend the impression. Palate is a bit thin.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2006
bottle. Aroma: dustiness, light yeast, white grapes, lemon, some cheesy funkiness. Appearance: Deep gold in color and clear. Head was off-white, full and rocky. Some clumpy lacing. Flavor: Nice sourness up front with a bit of lemon in the taste. Strong woodiness. Some hay and grass with some light funk. Palate: Light bodied. Lively carboantion. Finish was almost champagne-like in its dryness. Overall: My first gueuze in quite a while, and my first one rated here. Pretty nice overall. Nice sourness and funk. Good dry finish. Maybe not for everyday, but this is a good champagne replacement.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - SEP 12, 2006
12 oz bottle. Nice cloudy golden color, lively white head. Nice aroma, cobwebs, cheese, light funk, some yeast. A touch of sweetness in the flavor rounds it out. It doesn’t have that massive punch like a Cantillon, but it’s just sour enough to keep me happy. Pretty nice.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - SEP 3, 2006
On tap at Belgian Beer Weekend, Brussels: Poured orange/yellow with a smallish white fizzy head. Subtle bubblegum aroma with light funk. Flavor is mildly sour with a bit of bitterness. For the first beer of the day, this was quite refreshing and went down very well.

[Bottled at Vinens Verden] Well balanced. Has earlier tasted it to mussels, which was perfect. Frank Boon makes perfect beers.
