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.

NomDeBeer (414) - Maryland, USA - APR 8, 2009
Heavily carbonated - bounced the cork off the cieling after opening. Light body and very fizzy. Sizable fluffy white head above a very hazy gold beer. Aroma is lots of lemons and hay, some yeast, but little funk. Taste is the same - did I mention lots of lemons? Tart, sour, and refreshing. Good beer, but for $10, it’s not worth the price of admission.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 5, 2009
Bottle 2003-2004. Orange colour with a white head. Sour, acidic funky and dry, but very balanced. Lemon, green apples, light oak, light cheese. Very refreshing.

unclemike (2837) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - APR 4, 2009
Pour is pale ruddy golden with a big bubbled off white head...smell is straw and funky horseblanket with a hint of sour drifting in...taste is definately dry and funky with lots of musty and dirty flavors...some strange bitterness comes on just before the swallow where some faint tartness comes out...decent, bot not amazing

madvike (3173) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Pours hazy amber with a big bubbly head. The aroma is musty and funky, with apples and cherries in the background. The first sip starts out slightly sweet, then finishes with a champagne-like dryness. There’s more apples, funk, horseblanket. The carbonation is a bit distracting and bites at times. This is my first gueze, and I have to say it grew on me as I finished my glass. Looking forward to trying this one again.

Rciesla (5500) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Very fresh bottle, i think maybe a year or two on it. Pours a champagne body with a huge explosive white rocky head. Lemon citric acid, some subtle dry woody tart lemon with low acidity. Lactic acid and some woodiness rounds this one out.

(Corked bottle.) Truly golden color with a creamy head. A lot of acidity. Tastes like lemon and bitterness. Good geuze.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - MAR 15, 2009
Bottle. Poured a clear golden color with a 1/4 inch thick white head that faded to a thin layer. Aroma of tart citrus (orange and lemon, light peach), some funk (barnyard and horse blanket), and a moderate yeastiness (some cobweb). Tart, lightly funky entry leads into a sour (lemon and hints of grapefruit), funky barnyard yeastiness with some cobweb and horse blanket that finishes with a kiss of oak. Soft carbonation. A solid geuze I could drink pretty much any time.

Bottle at O’Brien’s, thanks to WeeHeavySD for sharing! Pours a clear amber-gold with a thick foamy white head. Big rich sour aroma, of lemon, yeast, and malt. Taste is a bit lighter, sour, of lemon and yeast. Lingering sourness that fades to a bit watery. Decent.
