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.

PetetheMeat (621) - Hove, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2007
What a gastly brew - far beyond sourish this ale has a aroma and flavour dominated by puke. Maybe I had an infected bottle, but Im not out for a retake...

JamesD (243) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - AUG 18, 2007
Pours an opaque cider color with a massive sour aroma. I can smell it right now and it’s sitting next to me on my desk about 2 feet away. The flavor is more so tart than sour with an interestingly mellow aftertaste.

ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - AUG 16, 2007
totally fascinating link to one of the most unusual brewing styles ever created. Pours a murky burnt orange with typically massive belgian head, gradually dissapating to a thin foam with intricate lacing. Immediately upon nosing the lambic one is introduced to a number of idiosynchratic scents: vinegar, leather, strong lemon all start off strong, and a slight malt presence can be detected. The palate shifts quite dramatically, intensely sour, then bitter, then finishing rather dry with a citrus kick and a spritzy body. Totally unusual and not for the average beer drinker, but for those with an adventurous palate it’s more than worth the price of admission.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - AUG 16, 2007
Bottle, with Fin, Loz and Traci. Yellow/amber, white head. Lemon, horse blanket, menthol, apple skin, nettle--a big, evocative aroma. Intense lemon flavor, aggressive sourness tranistions to a lingering quinine finish. The palate is perfection--so light and airy it almost evaporates off your tongue. What a nice beer. The heartburn was worth it. Thanks Fin!

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - AUG 16, 2007
hazy golden color with a thin white head, carbonation was present. Aroma was tart with an strong earth-like quality. Flavor was tart with mainly apples some grass/lemon notes in the finish. Gassy at times, but overall really good.

Brix (633) - DENMARK - AUG 16, 2007
Tasted 2007-07-21. 5 years old, 75cl. Hazy, dark yellow colour with white head. Aroma of apples, citrus, pineapple and hay. Acidic taste of apples, citrus, barnyard - a little flat, but it doesn’t ruin the beer. Very good!

rederic (3202) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2007
Slight hazy yellow gold hue, with a white head, at the unwire of the bottle, the cork came out by itself, nice tart, acidic apple fruitiness, with a good musty, barnyard accent, with a sour fruity rhubarb note, with a wet oaky aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a tart, sour, oaky character, with a musty, citrus acidic accent, with a rhubarb tartness, leading towards a lemony dry finish.

malrubius (2000) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 7, 2007
12 ounce bottle in pint glass. Pours opaque hazy amber with lasting dense off-white head and nice lace. Yeasty, bready, earthy aroma with faint tartness. Complex layers of tart flavors, horseblanket with a dry finish. Medium-light body, medium carbonation. Delicious, if not the most flavorful of the gueuzes.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2007
Tasted@Akkurat, Stockholm: Very fresh and tart aroma with touch of cellar and citrus. At first feels simply refreshing and drinkable but then the lingering tartness appears. Nothing heavy duty but still very nice.
