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.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1121) - FINLAND - OCT 9, 2009
Bottle. Deep golden colour with a huge white head. Slightly stuffy aroma with notes of apples and citrus. The flavour is sour with hints of apples and lemon. High carbonation. Decent gueuze, not as acidic as I was expecting.

Argentine (14) - Walla Walla, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2009
Aroma: Apple mush, barn wood, hints of clove Taste: Wonderful brettanomyces character reminicent of tart fruit/sour candy. Oak barrel favor expressed to a elegantly withheld level.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2009
Small bottle 2005-2006. Poured in an cantillon flute. The body is moisty corn yellow with an impressive white head that fades quickly though - Seems to be pretty hard carbonated. The nose is pretty acidic with notes of vinegar, apples and sour green grapes. The taste is a bitter sweet symphony with some nutty notes like almonds and a mild but kinda strange grapfruity finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium with the caracteristic butter touch.

Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2009
05 from the First Annual Chicago Sour Tasting, thanks to Andrew. lightly murky golden pour. Sickly sweet aroma, mild tobacco, some weird spiciness, phenolic, hints of maple syrup. Flavor is sweet but also astringent and bitter. More dark tobacco like flavors. Leaves a lasting dry woody/bitter flavor on the tongue. Meh, not the best for sure.

37,5 cl bottle, bottled 2005-2006,best before 2028-:)Colour like a pils, somewhat darker, big head, dense. Aroma is bitter, sour, fresh, like apple, honey and orange. Tastes bitter, acidic, fresh, long finish of a reasonable bitterness, with taste of orange peels. Also champagne-like. Nice refreshing.

LanceUppercut (139) - SWEDEN - SEP 14, 2009
A nose of oak and cherries. Taste is acidic and without funk, and contains oak and apples. Palate is a bit sticky and carbonation is high. This is a pretty drinkable gueuze, it’s enjoyable and balanced. It’s no masterpiece, but I’d pick it over most IPA:s on a hot summer day.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2010 (bottle) pours a hazy golden-orange colour with a frothy white head (and an exploding cork). aroma of perfumed floral hops and herbs, with some mild funk and a whiff of barnyard. flavour is mild balsamic vinegar and citrus with a bone-dry sour sweet-bready finish. medium body with fizzy carbonation.

Ygberg (143) - SWEDEN - SEP 9, 2009
Aroma of apple. Apperance is amber with a smalla white head. The flavor is souer, sweet and dry with hints of apple tart. A nice and drinkable geuze.

Aggy360 (115) - Anchorage/ Vista,CA, Alaska, USA - SEP 3, 2009
Pours a hazy golden straw with a nice white head. Strong yeast aroma, very champagne like, some Brett. Taste is sweet at first then a strong tart flavor comes along. This has a lot of malt and very light old hop bitterness, and a strong Brett character. Good carbonation and body. A nice brew.
