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.

mixamatt (427) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 28, 2005
Cidery tart aroma. Huge head with a sparkling orange appearance. Sour tart mellowed grapefruit apple flavor that is far more toned down than Cantillion products. Dry sour finish.

asheft (2705) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 27, 2005
[best before Nov. 2, 2022] Hazy, brownish amber with tons of rocky foam of largish bubbles that disappears after a couple minutes to a patchy, thick cover and diffuse lacing. Aroma is woody, black cherry; dry and a little bit sour, with a hint of horseblanket. Flavour is a bit weak, compared to the aroma: dry woody/winey white cranberry juice. Bitterness significant and does not seem to be from hops--it’s very oaky. Very light and very carbonated. Very refreshing.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 20, 2005
Bottle. Best before 2/11/2022. Golden dark apple juice colour. Very big bubbly head. Sour apple juice aroma. Dry, sour and slightly salty. Apple flavour up front. Not a lot of other distinguishable flavours. Reminds me of a palate cleansing sorbet.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - MAR 18, 2005
Bottled. Pours a clear orange color with a huge, frothy white head. Aroma is horse blanket and lemon. Flavor is just what I expect from a gueuze. Why is this so poorly rated? This is damn good! Nice and sour, barnyard flavors with a bit of spice. Citrus aftertaste.

mustang3 (254) - Whitby, CANADA - MAR 11, 2005
Hazy orange/gold in colour and a small white head with a never say die attitude. Aroma is very tart with a funky barnyard smell as well as ctirus. The flavour has some appley flavour but the dominant flavour especially on the finish is acidic citrus.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 10, 2005
Bottle, best by "12/13/2022". This stuff is very well carbonated, pours with a big fluffy white head over a hazy light amber body. Thick frosty lacing on the glass. Appetizing aroma, has a good balance of sweet and tart. Caramel and vanilla cake with rhubarb and vinegar, wood accents. The flavor leans more towards the tart side with metallic grapefruit rind and rhubarb overshadowing grapefruit flesh sweetness and cracker. Dry flavor, I think I like my geuzes to have a bigger malt profile.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 8, 2005
Golden with a large white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is sourness with lots of citrus. Taste is dry, sour, citrus and lively with carbonation. Ends tart. Only complaint is that its slightly acidic but that seems to be part of the gueze. Like a good champagne.

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - MAR 1, 2005
Bottle. Golden colored with a very large white head. Beautiful lacing left. Aroma is funked out for sure. Sour, a little stale with barest hints of citrus. Very dry. This sucked all moisture away for seconds at a time. Well carbonated with it dancing on the tongue and roof of my mouth. Sour and tart flavors with just a hint of sweetness. Hints of saline. Very nice.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - FEB 27, 2005
Pours gold with a very long lasting medium white head. Nice funky aroma with some sugary and lemon notes. Great combination of sweet and sour flavour. Nice citric notes, with some vinegar. Very refreshing cleansing palate. Good!

heemer77 (5174) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - FEB 24, 2005
Deep gold with some orange color. Huge head. Aroma is vinegar and some lemons. Also the typical hay and barnyard. The taste is very sour with lemons and some balsamic vinegar. A touch of apples and hay. This is a decent version of the style. Best by December 11, 2022.
