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.

A nose of oak and cherries. Taste is acidic and without funk, and contains oak and apples. Palate is a bit sticky and carbonation is high. This is a pretty drinkable gueuze, it’s enjoyable and balanced. It’s no masterpiece, but I’d pick it over most IPA:s on a hot summer day.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2010 (bottle) pours a hazy golden-orange colour with a frothy white head (and an exploding cork). aroma of perfumed floral hops and herbs, with some mild funk and a whiff of barnyard. flavour is mild balsamic vinegar and citrus with a bone-dry sour sweet-bready finish. medium body with fizzy carbonation.

Ygberg (143) - SWEDEN - SEP 9, 2009
Aroma of apple. Apperance is amber with a smalla white head. The flavor is souer, sweet and dry with hints of apple tart. A nice and drinkable geuze.

Aggy360 (115) - Anchorage/ Vista,CA, Alaska, USA - SEP 3, 2009
Pours a hazy golden straw with a nice white head. Strong yeast aroma, very champagne like, some Brett. Taste is sweet at first then a strong tart flavor comes along. This has a lot of malt and very light old hop bitterness, and a strong Brett character. Good carbonation and body. A nice brew.

holdenn (2101) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2009
’05 Bottle from the First Annual Sour Tasting, thanks to andrew. Pours a clear copper orange with a creamy bobbled off white head that laces down in spots. Somewhat stinky cheesy sweet aroma of phenols and chemicals. Citrus earthy flavors with tannins and funk. Long earthy bitter finish with the tannins and earthy hops. Odd and not enjoyable.

A bottle 0.375L from Alko shop. Nice pale head. Mild appley nose. Hazy pale orange/yellow colour. Some grapefruit in the taste. Hoppy bitterness. Some hints of apricot in the taste.

Jblauvs (1357) - Chester, Vermont, USA - JUL 21, 2009
hazy golden pour with slight head. aroma is brett with some tart lemon citrus. Flavor reflects this, carbonation is perfect, a little agitated but nice and crisp. great palate. Flavor is funky and dry, lemon and brett. some white wine notes and oakiness. Nice, simple and refreshing. a nice pure example of the style

craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 21, 2009
Pours a hazy golden tan with a minimal bubbly head. Aroma is very funky, with some tart citrus, and seems to be quite dry. Flavor is quite sharp again with the citrus, and the sparkly carbonation fades to an incredibly dry finish. Not an incredible lambic, but I really like the mouthfeel- markedly above average brew.

Presentation: It was poured from a green corked and caged 335ml bottle into a tulip glass. There is a best before date of 25-04-2027 on the bottle. Appearance: The body has a hazy golden orange color with lots of beautiful Champaign like carbonation. On top there is a lively, big, fluffy head with a creamy off white color. It fades slowly but hangs on to a thin covering that make some slick lacing on the glass. Smell: The aroma is interesting and complex. In the nose there is notes of apples, apple cider vinegar, light oak notes, wet wool and rose petals. Taste/Mouth Feel: Its flavor is just as complex as the aroma. There is a little bit of astringent citrus with hard apple cider notes that give it a nice sharp sour character. Also there are some floral notes, dry hay and light woody oak notes and next to no hops. The finish has a sharp dry sour oak finish. The body is about medium with lively mouth feel and lively active carbonation. Notes: Outstanding, a very good example of the style.
