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.

Mogwai (227) - Askeby, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2007
Bottle. Pours a hazy, golden colour with white head. Very sparkling indeed. Aroma and taste of nothing but sour fruit. I’ll take a kick to the groin any day just to avoid this beer. Not fond of lambic/geuze.

hopdog (9713) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Bottle. Poured a medium and cloudy orangish color wtih a larger sized white head. Aromas of green apples, citrus, and a little funky. Tastes of the same. Light pucker finish.

TomDecapolis (4617) - Milton, Delaware, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Thanks to hopdog. Pours a hazy golden amber with a large frothy lacing off white head. Aroma of green apple, tart cherries and a basement funk. Flavor was sour, a bit thin and funky. Some fermented apples and dry.

oakbluff (432) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 16, 2007
Taste courtesy of piscator34. Light straw colour. Nose is of light funk and citrus. Taste- quite tart with lemon and green apple. High carbonation as expected. Very refreshing and tasty gueze

piscator34 (2113) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 8, 2007
Light orange in colour with spritzy carbonation. Aromas of horse blanket, lemon, and a bit of spice. Fairly tart in the mouth, but not overly sour. More horse blanket and lemon flavors, and even a little bit of stone fruit. A touch watery. A solid gueuze, but not as good (or as sour) as Cantillon or Girardin.

Bartzilla (565) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 8, 2007
Draft, Engelbewaarder, Amsterdam. You’ve all had it. It’s delicious geuze. Maybe not right from the barrels, but this stuff rocks.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2007
Thinner in body than some gueze with flavors lingering less. Bone dry and fun to drink but doesn’t stand up to some of its counterparts.

armando629 (2442) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 1, 2007
Very good spontaneous fermented beer. It has yellow-golden color, some acidic-sour flavour with a light sweetness, lightly carbonated geuze from Lembeek

TrefwoordPunk (830) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2007
Brouwseizoen 2004-2005, bottle 37,5 cl. Pours a cloudy golden with a medium white head and citrus and spice in the nose. Taste is sour, with some spices and sugar, finish is sour and a bit hoppy. An OK gueuze

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 22, 2007
Pours a yellow-golden color. Aroma is skunky and sour. Taste is sour with a vinegar and grape/apple mixture. Not as sour and complicated as I expected.
