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.

Pours hazy yellow/golden colour with a decent head. Fizzy, dry mouthfeel. Taste is dry, crisp and sour, has notes of citrus fruits, apples, vinegar and grapefruits. Has some slight sweetness. Finish is lemony bitter. Interesting beer.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2008 Skunky aroma made me think it was an infected bottle. I kind of like that skunk smell anyway though. pours a great gold color with lots of crap floating around. Flavor is acidic and strong, very dry fruity flavor. some spiciness maybe. Thick but bubbly and refreshing. Iíve never had a gueuze before but I definitely like this one. too bad about the steep price tag :\

Courtesy of Nate. Pours a hazy bubbly orange golden color with a thick frothy white head. Has a spicy horse blanket smell... tons of funk, some bitey citrus notes. Lots of fruit, possibly some apple and clover honey. A little bit of sweet taste up front, but then you get hit with a wall of funky sour. Almost a savory flavor in the end. The sour turns into a dry bitterness, and stays nicely on the tongue. Very nice body.

Bottle. Thanks for sharing, Nate. Pours hazy, murky orange/yellow color with white, fizzy head. Nose is lemony citrus, honey, sourdough bread, slight apple, mild vinegar, and lots of stuff I canít name. Just a fantastic smell. Lemony, citric acit taste with mild bready notes, woody thyme, slight savoriness. Very good. Crazy beer. Lots of flavors. I think "wow" pretty much covers it.

santos999 (318) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2008
Thanks to Nate for sharing. Cloudy orange-ish gold with a strong, foamy, soapy white head. Incredibly funky in the nose, with citric, farmhouse, honey, jasmine, stinky cheese, brett, oak, apple and bread notes. What a perfect aroma.. I could sniff this forever!! The taste is hugely sour and acidic with some really fantastic funk. Iís like biting into a fresh lemon! Notes of orange, honey, wild yeasties, grape, herbs and pears. The finish is bone dry with a big, long, mineral-like brett aftertaste that lingers on the tongue for days. Beautiful.

Nate (3806) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2008
From bottle. Great funky oaky nose. Lactic and light dry hops. So sour and funky; wonderful nose. I canít stop inhaling this stuff. Vinegar and honey. Cloudy pale butterscotch amber with foamy-wispy off-white lacing head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation and acidic burn. Starts very tart with lemon and lactic acid, mild vinegar. Grainy wheat, bitter lemon peel and dry hops. Oaky notes, a bit of broth. Sour finish with acidic burn and dry powdery oaky after. Great stuff.

Pours hazy dark orange with white head. Strong funky barnyard aroma. Slightly sour, woody flavor with some citrus and earthiness. Light to medium body, average carbonation and a dry finish.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 24, 2008
The cork popped on this beauty with very little coaxing. Pour was a hazy golden orange, with a monster foamy white head that stuck around troughout the glass. Aroma of apples and wet hay, lots of funk. Sour apple flavor, with a light, highly carbonated body. Very dry finish. Good.
