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.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2012 Seems I keep having bad luck w/ this one. Second time rating and I got one w/ a bad cork which is hence uncarbonated. Corks suck. There is better and cheaper technology available for sealing bottles. Why pay more for ruined beer? In any case, it’s really too bad because this smells pretty much awesome, deep compex and funky. Texture and appearance are ruined due to lack of head and carbonation, of course, but it does taste OK regardless. But still, fuck corks.

Original rating: Golden with a big foamy head. Grassy, sour aroma. Slightly metallic. Sharp and tart. Not the best of the gueuze world.

This brew pours a large head of fine to medium sized white bubbles and an transparent ligh amber brown body. It had a strong citrousy fruity aroma. The flavor was strong and bubbly with notes of citrus. It has a very tart initial mouthfeel that left my mouth feeling bubbly. There was a slight bite in the finish.

Medium gold color. Large head. Aroma is sour, apples, and a touch of barnyard. A medium bodied geuze. Tart and sour, balanced by some applish sweetness. Hints of wood. It very dry. The dryness sort of takes over every other aspect of this beer. All in all, it still a drinkable geuze. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is dry and tart. Aftertaste is bitter and tart.

MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2004 Vintage 99-00. Very carbonated with hints of wood in both aroma and flavor. Sour, dry palate. Dust ans wood in finish. Very nice - sharp and sparkling. Might need some more years in the cellar (best before 2022).

Yikes, that's sour. I had to pour it out because it wasn't going well with food. I can see why folks might like it in a certain mood, however.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 16, 2003
Recolte 1996/1997, 6 years old; 7% ABV
Golden color; giant frothy head; persistent perlage. Deep aroma of wood, cellar, citrus fruits... Quite smooth, good body structure; astringent, tarty, light malt, light fruits; a residual sweetness (veeery light). Palate astringent and quite aromatic. Good but not enough aggressive.

jonas (5736) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAR 26, 2003
Acidic, yet slightly fruity aroma. Golden orange, low blanket head. Nice acidic notes on top of fruit (apples, citrusfruit), some hints of cheese-mold. Refereshing. Exits gracefully.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 26, 2003
The beer pours a translucent deep golden amber color, the head mountainous, the texture spumescent, off white in color and as it desiccates the lace left behind a nice sealing sheet. Nose is tart, hints of pineapple, crisp and clean a nice treat for the senses. The brew starts with a lemon like tartness, top is slim in its feel to the palate, the finish ferine in its acidity with the tartness carrying all the way to the very dry aftertaste, I just never really know what to think of Gueuze lambics, but quite drinkable nonetheless.
