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.

Feinschmecker (202) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Bottle. Very hazy and citric sour aroma. Tart and a nice balance of sourness on the palate. The carbonation creates a rather dry and clean finish. Very nice.

Plan9 (5) - Apopka, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2008 does not count
12 oz bottle. Poured a cloudy honey color with a 1 inch cream colored head that never disapeared. Aroma was earthy with light fruit and lemons. Nice carbonation. Acidic sourness at first, then very sweet. Flavors of brett funk apple and lemon flavors. Sweeter than I expected.

hayduke (4123) - Eureka, California, USA - DEC 21, 2008
From a 750 ml bottle that cost $8.59 at the Northcoast Coop in Eureka, CA this poured a cloudy gold with fat white head and thick lacing. Nose is citrus and ripe fruit. Lively mouthfeel and a lot of rich sour fruit flavors and a dry finish. Very nice brew.

illidurit (2258) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 19, 2008
12 oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. Dark cloudy goldenrod with a humungous off-white head, more than 4 fingers tall. Excellent retention and absurd chunks of lacing. Aroma is mostly citrus peel and lemony sour with an orangey sweetness to it. Huge citric acid. Flavor is not nearly as sour as the aroma. Some of the lemony tartness is definitely still there, but bretty funk is at least even with sourness/acidity in the overall profile. Earthy and saison-like at times. Nice dry finish. Kind of like a part-gueuze part-Orval blend. Interesting and tasty, could be a good intro-to-sours beer.

$6.99 bottle from PP bottle shop. Yellow amber color. Lots of carbonation, but head fades quickly. Strong, strong skunky aroma. Some other nice funky notes, but the skunk overwhelms. Green glass bottle. Nice mellow sour flavor.
