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.

Non ha nè difetti ma nemmeno pregi particolari. Manca quel qualcosa che la faccia distinguere dalle altre.

Boon Oude Geuze 2011-2012 Pours a slightly hazed orange-amber color with a small, white head, immediately collapsing to a small film at the rim of the glass. Smells of ripe red apple, together with a nice, cheesy funkiness. Lemon zest and old wood bark among sweeter toffee malts create a pleasant depth on the nose. Has a very mineralic, lively carbonation, supported by tart lemon zest, creating a pleasant interplay with a sweeter malts defined finish. Tastes of a slightly harsh, carbonation supported, stony minerality among sour lemon pulp and a oaken hint on the back end. Offers dusty toffee malts after the swallow, together with the beer’s profound mineral quality. Finishes with a decent lemon tartness among funky cream cheese, wood bark and fermented, fruit coated toffee. Drinks very easy, refreshing with a nice depth of flavors to it, while its mineralic presence is a tad over the top, preventing more subtle flavors from becoming recognizable, especially during the beginning.

anstei (1064) - 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 (5952) - 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.
