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.

Hamirubi (203) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAR 1, 2015
38cl. bottle (375ml.). The Oude Geuze Boon is my defintion of a "gueuze" beer. Orange or golden, light brown or even peachy color, with a small head. The foam fades away, making place for a beautiful scent of oranges, lemon. A perfect dry and sour taste. An easy drinker.

This is probably one of the sourest beers I ever tried to drink. I poured it away and it cleaned the pipes of my house. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wow it smells terrible. Colour is Orange. Taste is really sour almost lemon with some lambic fruity tastes. Definitely interesting but the sour is too much defined in the taste.
