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.

anstei (874) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 28, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2016 Bottle from Wittich web shop. After the black label, this one feels a bit watery. Much less intense, but the gentleness actually helps. A bit dirtier and funkier in aroma.

The_Osprey (5310) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2016
375ml cork and cage bottle at home in Richmond as ’Boon Oude Geuze’, 7%, 2011/12 season. Pale orange, highly sparkling, light haze, foamy dense white head endures. Aroma is sherbet, a room full of air freshener. A heady, musty, floral, fruity mix that’s difficult to describe. Very fresh and very nice. Body is quite foamy, tingly carbonation, tooth-coating. Taste is tart citrus, some apple, metallic and acidic into the finish. A pretty good beer, but their Mariage Parfait is significantly better and not much more expensive.

crim (85) - POLAND - FEB 14, 2016
fajny aromat stajenny i lekko cytrynowy, genialnie pijalne jak na 7% alko, kwaśność bardzo niska, trochę cierpkie(to chyba drewno daje takie opcje), goryczka delikatna, posmak cytrynowo/jabłkowo stajenny
