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.

jerd16 (183) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2014
Pours golden with mountainous head. Aroma is Fermenting apples, slightly farmhouse, florals, hint of pear. Fairly tart and a little musty, almost cider-esque. Small bubbles. Bouncy, champagne palate. Taste is more apples, hints of lemon and pear. Sour, dry finish. Enjoyable, but I’m sure lacking the complexity of better examples.

jackafholmes (122) - - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle from marble, manc. First non-fruit lambic. Pours a slightly Misty pale gold with a persistent frothy white head. Smells a bit like cheap cider or champagne. Reminds me of refresher sweets and alcaseltzer, obviously sour but with less flavour. Really fizzy, bloated me a bit. Not for me.

Épp a minap jutott eszembe ez a sör. Egy baráti társasággal részt vettem egy sör és bortúrán Belgiumban és Németországban. Kellemes és tartós habja van, elvileg nagyon régi a receptúrája. Nagyon komlós, érdekes élmény volt, ha valaki arrafelé jár, csak ajánlani tudom...

From notes. 750 mL bottle shared at a tasting on 5 May. The pour is a foggy golden amber with a large white head that fades down pretty slowly with little to no lacing. The nose is pretty great. There is a good fruitiness, backed up by a bit of sourness and a pretty good bit of funk, The flavor is similar, but it does seem a bit skunky. The flavors linger a little bit, and the fruits seem to drown out to the skunk. The mouth feel is think and light, but there is a good carbonation and a slightly lingering aftertaste

mmahut (900) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 10, 2014
Light hazy pale body with low foam. Aroma has higher sourness with hints of pear and peach, light woody background. Taste has high sourness across the border with mostly berries and the light wood is there too. Body is full, medium carbonation.

Pugno (55) - Konstanz, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle from the 2011-2012 brewing season. Deep hazy orange with a nice and thick white head. Strong aroma of rotten fruit. Sour notes in the taste, frizzy, tart and dry finish.

(Flasche 2011&2012) Es hat eine dreckige orangene Farbe, ist fetrüb mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist dumpf, sauer, riecht etwas nach Pferdemist, aber angenehm, frisch gebackenes Schwarzbrot und Pfifferlinge. Der Geschmack ist ein bisschen sauer, etwas sandig, moosig und n klein bisschen bitter. Es ist spritzig underfrischend.
