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.

BeerandBlues2 (10542) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 16, 2007
Bottle provided by jrob21. Pours hazy yellow with a small, fizzy, white head, lasting with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (grain, hay, straw), average hops (flowers, grass), average yeast (barnyard, earth) with notes of green apples and grapes. Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish. Average duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.

JoeMcPhee (8819) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2007
2002 vintage. Gorgeous golden colour topped by a huge frothy head. Great aroma, earthy and tart with a strong funky and musty character. Very lovely soft tartness. Fresh and fruity. Lightly perfumey aroma. A very approachable gueuze. Soft acidity on the back.

SDalkoholic (2206) - Linda Vista, California, USA - OCT 26, 2007
12.7 oz bottle purchased at South Bay Drugs and Liquor. This lambic created a violent glowing yellow in my flute and looked similar to a chemistry experiment in a beaker. The nose was a sour fruit smell with a notice of alcohol. In the flavor, more or less the same thing, but I would be able to get more detailed. The sourness detected is similar to a unripe lemon or a juicy green lime and leaves behind the smallest aftertaste of bitter salt. From the description I’ve given this almost sounds like a tequila or margarita. Also, I won’t forget to mention the very minor fruit flavor of green apple, pear and grape, although, very complicated once I swallow the mouthful and then I’m left with a state of confusion.

Bullit (4106) - Burgos, SPAIN - OCT 23, 2007
Cloudy orange/golden colour, with a huge dense white head. Aroma has barnyard, citrus and apple. Flavour is mostly sour apple and lemon. Sparkling and refreshing. Finishes dry.

bombshelter (349) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 21, 2007
Bottle, de Kring, Lembeek. Pale gold, good-sized white head, well carbonated. Tight, punchy tart up front, but the finish is dry, funky. Aroma is class geuze: apples, tart, citrus. Good, but lacking some complexity when compared to the blenders. Very drinkable, could quaff the heck out of this one on a hot summer day.

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2007
0.375 l bottle, 2003-2004 vintage. Golden-copper color with surprisingly thick and persistent head. Sour, refreshing, sulphury, bready, lemony, grapefruity and perfumed aroma. Acidic, grapefruity and lemony flavor with hints of cork.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 30, 2007
2001 vintage small bottle. No pop on the cork, but slight carbonation- wierd spotty cobwebby foam and sporatic lace. Murky coppery brown body. Mustly, dirty, dusty, earth, lactic, funk, and some light cherry pit aroma. Sharp lactic and acetic acid flavor especialy upfront, and even burns through to the back of my nose like a strong vinegar. Sharp cheesy flavor, some ammonia, farmhouse funk, tons of lacto and acetobacter bacteria. Moderately sour in the finish with some more cherry and cherry pit astringency. Good drying bitter, and sour mouthfeel. Pretty good queze overall. Unique for sure.
