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.

0.25l bottle. Golden color with white head. Aroma is woody, funky, earthy and basement aromas. Taste is sour without any residual sweetness. Dry finish. Overall it’s quite unique and interesting beer.

Fantastic geuze. Light and dry and incredibly pungent. Lots of sourness and a good amount of earthy finish.

Bottle thanks to Ian! Pours a hazy straw colour with a white head. Funky light veg, a little meat, farm. Light body, medium carbonation. Lemon, white wine, white bread, a little gooseberry... Lovely balance. Tasty! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alengrin (1801) - BELGIUM - AUG 6, 2014
Boon’s representative in the proud league of ’oude geuzes’ with a powerful, rocky, snow white, stable, very sticky head leaving finely structured lacing on the glass; colour orange blond, misty. Aroma of ’malse’ (soft) lambic, some sharp wine vinegar but still primarily the more ’mellow’ lambic aromas, yoghurt, wheat, red berries; taste mild lactic acid, citric acid rather subtle, soft mouthfeel, complex, wheaty, fruity, sherry notes, finishing dry with a leafy, ’old’ hoppiness typical for the ’overyear’ hops used in lambic. Not my absolute favorite in the style but I am an admirer of the style in general and I would recommend this as a good introduction, also because it is one of the more easily available authentic geuzes.

veceo (525) - CROATIA - AUG 5, 2014
Deep amber color, average sized white head. Medium body, lively carbonation. Aroma of white whine, sour apples and vinegar. Medium to high sourness in taste with long sour apple finish. Really not my cup of tea.

RickTheRick (382) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2014
De grosses particules en suspension voguent allègrement dans un liquide blond assez trouble. Une mousse respectable se forme. Le nez est très végétal et minéral, des fruits jaunes sont aussi reniflés. Sèche et fruitée, un côté sucré qui détonne rend toutefois la bière moins amusante à boire. Ça ne gâche pas tout, mais c’est assez pour m’énerver un brin. La finale, un peu boisée, sauve les meubles.

Hockert (82) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2014
37,5 cl bottle at home. Pours hazy orange with a white head. Smells fruity but sour. Taste is dry and acid. High carbonation. Good but not the best.

Een bijzondere ervaring, dit zure, spontaan gegiste bier. Wanneer je eraan gewend bent, is het heerlijk. Ook lekker bij visgerechten.
