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.

375 ml bottle poured to a tulip. 2011/2012 vintage, 4059 cork. Cool try here for me. This one never found me over the years, though I wasn’t actively looking. Cloudy orange pour with a thick, heavy, lasting foam head. Huge aroma of sour orange fruit from a distance. Soft orange, apricot sour up front with a big champagne finish. Has a grainy, almost wheat background. Love the level of tart here. Love the style. Very nice beer here

2012/2013 bottle poured in a Spiegelau wit glass at home. Color is light amber, clear. Smooth tart lambic aroma. Mouthfeel, I would prefer less carbonation. Bubbly. Class lambic.

fles 75cl, kleur goud, met een flinke schuimkraag, geur zurig, kersen, smaak zurig en fruitig. De eerste slok heeft een wrange nasmaak. Daarna went het snel. Het heeft wat weg van champagne
