4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The green, 12 oz., corked and caged bottle was picked up at Green’s, and warmed up to cellar temperature before opening. The cork came out readily while I was trying to insert the corkscrew, and the pour was bubbly and restrained. The body was pale yellow with a lot of haze. The smell was acidic with loads of barnyard horse blanket due to the wondrous handiwork of the wild yeast and bacteria. The taste was cidery, tart, oaky, bone dry, and not quite as funky as the other Geuzes I’ve tasted before. Very refreshing, and a touch thicker than most blended lambics. Very easy to drink and a lot more approachable, due to the lack of mouth puckering acidity, when compared to Cantillon.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours a clear pale golden amber. An impressively nice, creamy white head form and stays for an incredible amount of time - considering this is a spontaneous fermented bottle. No lacing. Aroma is funky, light fruity, some barnyard, men generally rather mild. Fair mouthfeel that dries out nicely. Flavours contain light caramel, subdued tartness, wood and a nice fruitiness. Not my favourite Geuze, but better than most Boon offerings.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle date 2003-2004. Opened with a loud pop. Clear, bright gold with a white head. That slightly vegetal champagne aroma with a curious hint of tomato juice. Sour grapefruit taste like a very dry cider, with a sharp bitter finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle reads Geuze Boon. Pours a hazy dirty orange color with speckels which resemble black pepper. The bodies texture in the glass is so collected it is almost like egg yolk. Every debris moves in harmony with a shake of the glass. Nose is a bit of skunkiness with fruits, citrus, and champagne. mouth is crisp and sour, with noticable amounts of apples that finish dry. It really does resemble aspects of chapagne, cider, and beer all in one. This went very well with pasta.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle as Geuze Boon. Lightly funky, citrusy aroma. Hazy orange color with a very respectable white head. Thinnish in body with fizzy/creamy carbonation. The flavor is very tart citrus developing into funk. The finish goes a bit more earthy, then sour hits the rear edges of the tongue. Really dry. Indeed it does suggest a yeasty champagne, but I’m not sure I’d want this much sour in my champers.
