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.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2007

Theis (13557) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2007
Bottle (2003-2004) in the yard before BBQ. Unclear light amber - small tight white head. Aroma: gooseberries, barnyard, vinegar. Taste: Gooseberries, mild vinegar, light sweetness, barnyard, light horsey, "hoppy" -> flowery -> elderflowers. A nice mild Geuze.

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - JUN 6, 2007
2003/04 bottling. Pours slightly hazy gold with a hint of orange highlites. Has a medium sized, white head. Aroma is pleasnet from the get-go. Fruity and tart, lemon, and Earth tones. Noticeably tart, but not overpowering. Refreshing fruits like lemon, and a little cherry. The Earth tones are preseant in the flavor as well, but linger in the background. Finishes dry and a little sour. Medium body. Constant bubbling is reminiscent of champagne, but I wouldn’t say the flavor is all that similar. Refreshing and light, well brewed.

Beer4000 (4529) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2007
750ml bottle@Kristiansand lambic festival. 2002 compared with 2003 version (drunk 2007). No significant difference between the vintages. Hazy slightly orange body with a moderate head. Nice mild aroma, fruity with just a little hint of acid. Flavor is also moderate sour with a nice hint of cellar notes. I actually believe I found some traces of cherry pit here. Quite nice but I prefer the sour wildness of the Mariage Parfait Gueze.

SB (333) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2007
From bottle. Bottle conditioned. Poured golden yellow. Fluffy white head, that lasted throughout. Nice carbonation, the bubbles rised, making me think it was champagne like. Aroma musty lemon, also fruits and earthy hints. Flavor earthy with hints of apples. Aftertaste tart lemonish notes. Dry, champagne like. Refreshing on a hot afternoon.

bonbright7 (181) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2007
I could see the reference to Champagne being true as this tart, sparkling, and hop- laden beer produced a similar aroma. My first taste reminded me that I had this once before at a party as it has an unexpected taste if you have been drinking hearty ales previously.

Sammy (8726) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2007
Smell of yeast, and alcohol. This is dry, sparkling, with a retaining crowning head of gold onto apple juice colour. Taste has characteristics of apple juice and much better deeper in the meal, and not as interesting outiside of geuze geeks before. Not too dry nor sweet.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2007 250 ml bottle. Firm off-white head over hazy, plain golden body. Aromas of apples and grapefruit with wooden and slight earthy notes. Taste is acidulous fruity and rather subdued for the style; mainly citrus and apples, without any heavy sourness or tartness. Still enough acidity to make it utterly refreshing. Crisp and dry mouthfeel.. Easy to like and very quenching.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2008 Bottle. Pours cloudy dark orange with amber highlights. Rich frothy head that dissapates quickly. Quite sour on the nose. Barnyard at dawn; wet, musty yet slightly fruity.. farm-y. Quite firm on the palate. Very metallic tasting (copper). Slightly dry and hoppy. Dry cherry notes develop, but still quite iron-y. Maybe my bottle needed more time. Tasted too young. Not oaky enough.
