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.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 9, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2008 Bottle, 75cl corked. Hazy, golden/straw body, with a large, lasting white head. Quite weak on the nose, but there’s barnyard, citrus and some yeast. The flavor is too bitter I think, yet quite sour and citrusy, with barnyard-notes and yeast-hints. Medium body.Long, grapefruity finish. A decent beer, but not my favorite gueuze. Rating: 6-4-6-3-12-3.2. (070526)

Bottle, 37.5cl corked. A hazy, orange-golden beer with a minimal off-white head. Citrus, barnyard, horse blanket and a wheaty touch in the aroma. The flavor has a little sweetish touch, but is still nice and tart, with citrus and barnyard. A quite mild gueuze, easy to drink, but still gueuze. (080926)

Trooper11 (468) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - JUN 18, 2007
My first Gueuze and already surprised as I wasn’t anticipating the cork to blast off like a rocket as soon as I opened the wire....POP!!. Very fizzy expanding head as it pours into the glass releasing a very strong fruity apple aroma. Hazy golden yellow color looks like cider. Very effervescent. Oww, a bit sour, apple flavor, mild smoothness folllows, a bit of a quick tartness then calms to bitter apple. Tartness fades quick then leaves a bland apple taste in the palate. Interesting, different. Not bad, I am just an IIPA & stout guy.

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.

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.
