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.

Appearance - clear gold. Finger head that died quick. Aroma - slight funk. Not very prevalent. Mouth - decent bite. Medium carbs. Taste - mild sour. Slight dry champagne taste. Nothing funky going on but still decent tart. Overall - pretty good. I prefer more sour tart flavor like rodenbach. Still pretty nice. Simple and clean.

Urrkhest (11) - HUNGARY - MAY 23, 2014
Bottled 0,375 from a beer shop, Hungary. The original guezue lambic. Golden colour, the smell of the simple oak and the special ,,yeast". A fantastic heritage of the past. Congratulate to Frank Boon, the head of all of this.
