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.

haggis03a3 (164) - Piedmont, California, USA - JUL 20, 2007
Cloudy yellow champagne appearance. Has a big white head, lively bubbles and lacing. Sharp aroma- sour, Chardonnay, lambic flavors. Tastes like a sour champagne, but you know it is a beer with the lambic yeast flavors and the malt. No hops or bitterness. A very dry finish. Very enjoyable.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2007
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden/orange with a good sized white head that fades slightly and leaves some lacing. Aroma is acidic and full of citrus fruit and a mild barnyard leathery character. Taste is a little softer than the aroma with the acidity being present but never too much and the barnyard being very faint. Medium thin mouthfeel that finishes dry, tart, and mildly spicy. A good Geuze

Nephilium (1453) - Ohio, USA - JUL 14, 2007
Best before 2025 bottle (labeled Geueze Boon); The aroma starts off with the standard sour smells, with hints of citrus, and a touch of straw. Pours a hazy straw color with a big fluffy white head. It is an amazingly dry beer, with a very sour start, and a long sour/bitter (almost pith like) finish.

yngwie (14715) - 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)

Bottled. Beer is clear, light/medium caramel brown with a small, white, frothy, diminishing but mostly lasting head.<P>The aroma is piquantly earthy funky lean. Malty with a light note of toasted grain; Hoppy with moderate notes of lemon, lemon zest, herb; Yeasty with a light note of basement, heavy notes of feral horse blanket, barn yard; trace/light note of green apple, trace of peppery oak.<P>The flavor is lightly/moderately sweet, moderately/heavily acidic, lightly bitter with a long, moderately bitter, moderately acidic, lightly sweet finish.<P>The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is fizzy.

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.

Bottle sampled. Pours blush with a large off-white head. Aroma of citrus, fruit, and slightly acidic. The flavor is fruity, citrus, slight sourness, with a dry finish. Moderate carbonation, and a good body.
