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.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JUL 20, 2009
Bottle during the first annual Chicago Sour Tasting. Vintage ’05 thanks to Andrew. Clear amber/orange with small, creamy white head. Sweet, stinky, barnyard aroma. Sweeter grain flavor with barnyard, cheesey, soda, meh. Light and slightly watery body. Not as good as many other geuzes.

j12601 (9300) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2009
Bottle at the Cuvee de Castleton release at Captain Lawrence. This one was a 94, and it’s age certainly showed. Aromas were a lot of acetaldehyde. Very broken down, sweet, and not very sour anymore. Sort of the skeleton of what used to probably be a very solid beer.

MiP (15039) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2009
Bottle, 6.5%. Beautifully sour aroma, creamy and slightly funky. Cloudy orange colour. Small stable white head. Very well-balanced flavour, citric and mild. Good earthy flavour as well.

Anker (723) - Hillerød, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2010 2001 bottle at Plan B. Pours golden with a quickly disappearing small white head Aroma is sweet with notes of hay, apples, grape and fainting prune. It has a sour, tart and fermented flavour with nutty, sour-sweet apple and metal notes in the after taste. Have obviously not been stored properly.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2009
Exploding carpet ruining bottle. Aroma of fruit, apricot, pear, apple cider. Very lively on the tongue and heavily carbonated. Flavour is not as heavy as the smell, a good thing in my eyes. Very enjoyable.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 1, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy peach color with a soft, bubbly, off-white head. Aromas of pear, tart apple, a touch of yeast, grass, and apple cider vinegar. Highly carbonated with a light, dry mouthfeel. Tart apple, floral notes, strong earthy bitterness, a bit of lime, and a sort of a dry dustiness on the palate. Short finish with some lingering apple and pear notes. Overall okay, but a little light in the flavor department.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Bottle - Pours a cloudy darkish amber in color with a very champagne-like foamy white head that fades to just cover the beer. Aroma is malty with plenty of a Belgian-like yeastiness.... character of wine apparent... with some fruitiness (citrus). Flavor is quite acidic with citrus being the dominant characteristic. Some yeastiness. A bit too sour for my tastes, but quite complex and good...

The Etruscan (607) - Tuscany, ITALY - JUN 27, 2009
1996-97 brewing season. Dark amber colour. White almost no-existing head. Aroma is malty, vinous, sour with fruity (citrus, prunes) and wooden notes. Flavor is malty too with fruity (citrus, apricots) and acidic tones, ending in a moderatey fruity finish. Light to medium bodied.
