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.

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 (5075) - 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.

wheninhell (488) - chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2007
slightly hazy dark golden with a white head that settles into a thin film. aroma...eh...dry grassy aroma with a little lemon and apple. its good i just dont get that intense horse blanket feeling that you get from most lambics...it almost reminds me of a pilsner. tart sour apple with a hint of lemon...nice sweet backbone with light bitter dry grassy notes. dry very dry tart sour apple and lemon finish with light dry bitter grassy notes...hay? light to medium body sparkling carbonation. at first i didn’t like this beer at all because it is so different from the other geuzes i have had (hanssens cantillon) but after drinking the bottle it is growing on me. i will have to try this one again.

greig (253) - Hamilton, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 19, 2007
Pours an appetising cloudy orange, with an off white head. The aroma is of rotting citrus - sounds awful I know, but is actually quite enticing. Firmly sour on the palate with complex herbal and almost grape notes, and hints of lemon which persist in the long bitter finish.

Bottle, Aikmans. Orangey hazy with a huge white head that laces well. Nose is floral hoppy and some dustiness. Mouth is quite sour with some mouldiness, and finishes very dry and long with some lasting lemoniness. Rather good actually.

Pours a slightly colored golden brown with a big head that receeds somewhat quickly. Smell is extremely sour with a strong yeast presence. Flavor is not as sour as I would have expected considering this is the first gueuze I have ever had and that the nose was so sour toned. This is actually extremely drinkable and I like it quite a bit. It is thinner on the mouth and not very heavy at all.
