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.

Gangstergafje (311) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2015
The beer has a nice golden color. Little cloudy, but a really nice color. The beer has a nice layer of foam. This are the only pluses. The smell is a sour penetrant zoo smell, disgusting. The taste is even worse, it is even worse than disgusting. The beer as a extremely sour and penetrant tongue twisting taste, I canít describe it, but you donít want t find out. I wonder if it isnít rotten. I thought Lindemans Faro was dirty but this is the absolute bottom of beer brewing quality. I donít want to disrespect the brewers, but this lambic thing is definitely not my thing. This is the first time a beer disappears in the sewer, after only two sips.

TH28 (263) - - MAY 30, 2015
2011/12 version. Appearance: dark golden and cloudy (yeast got into the pour), with minimal head. Aroma: Funk, stale paper, fresh hay, barnyard, and apple. Taste: Some sweet citric maltiness and apple, turning to an acidic, lactic sourness and hint of bitterness. Mouthfeel: light to moderate body with a high carbonation. Finish: Very dry with some lingering acidity and tartness, and a hint of Brett funk. Overall: Good Gueuze. Solid balance of brett funk, lactic sourness, and some fruity yeast characteristics. Dry and effervescent.

Pours a thick yellow/orange glass of beer. I didnít really enjoy it; thereís nothing much more to it than a rather heavy sourness.

overtheline (90) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - MAY 23, 2015
330ml bottle, pours a hazy orange yellow. Aroma of ripe banana, a real sour yeasty bread/vinegar note. This is my first geuze and wow, taste is a sweet and sour carnival! Some fruit does creep through though, banana, grapefruit and lemon.finish goes completely sour and then some sweet fruit returns.

Punkero (79) - FINLAND - MAY 22, 2015
Stormy orange appearance. Bubbly. Lovely foam. Faint aroma. Pouring the whole bottle brings more sourness. Easy gentle geuze.

JStax (3823) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Draft pour. The beer is a light yellow with a soft haze. Not much for head, but the little that was there, was white. The beer had a soft acidity to it with a bready, straw like character to it. Mild acidity in the taste and the grassy, straw character remains throughout. Medium body and low carbonation.

PietS (65) - Bergen op Zoom, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle 2011-2012. The sourness is not overwhelming. It is fresh with sweet undertones. Easy drinkable, like a sparkling wine.
