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.

Pours cloudy dark orange with amber highlights. The aroma is sour, tart and acidic. Flavor is also moderate sour and very fresh. Refreshing and light, well brewed.

12 oz. bottle. Wow didn’t quite know what I was getting into. The aroma is wonderful with a nice floral scent. When you take the first sip BAM, this is a sour beer. Once I knew what was going on it had an interesting flavor very citrusy... I am going to have to come back to this one.

Rusty (1545) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 6, 2009
Pours a nice hazy yellowish orange with a sparkling white head. Aroma is lemon, funk, asprin, sour, acidic lambic goodness. Flavor is sour, funky, applejuice, astringent, acidic, asprin, garbage, touch of sweetness. Decent Gueuze.

Jmichael (640) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - FEB 25, 2009
offers a solid pour with full white fizxy head that last just as long as it should, beautiful look as the head offers the perfect event horizon to the beer through the glass, mild aroma that hits you as your bring the glass up for a sip, mild subtleties are the initial note as the aroma is so initial, but as you enjoy this drink more it just gets better with the warmth of the room. good stuff, and fun to drink

lobotomizer (1) - USA - FEB 25, 2009 does not count
This is an incredibly refreshing brew and very food friendly. Geuze’s are hard to come by here so I have’nt tried many to compare but there’s almost no better accompaniment to pizza than this!

Looks like a Hoegaarden. First second of taste is OK, but the taste disappears very fast. A hint of nice bitterness,but not sour enough.

arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 13, 2009
375ml bottle with a best by date of 02/2028. Nice golden color with an initially thick white head. It smells dusty, funk, must, and a bit of citrus candy. The taste is like a bit of sour lemon juice but the mouthfeel seems a little watery much like the other Boon Gueuze. Decent gueuze but I’d prefer a Cantillon for the same price.

I cannot believe it took me this long to rate Boon. Great dry and lightly sour stuff. The acidity makes this go rather nicely with food (though I am something of an anti-"beer with food" guy). Great mouthfeel, as it is carbonated just right. Any more carbonation and I think the overall effect of the sourness and acidity would be a little too much.

PorterPounder (6894) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2009
Tallahassee, Fl. - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Dark golden , slightly murky pour with a soft, foamy white head. Strong earthy scent with some barnyard and horseblanket aromas. Smells very "wild" and natural. Flavor is full bodied and full of sourness. Some sour grapefruit, vinegar, and some unrecognizable, yet delectable extreme sourness. Mouthfeel is dry and very crisp. Probably one of the best guezes I have had.

Pours gold into a tumbler. Bright white head with excellent retention leaves spot lacing. Grapefruit aromas. Sour and crisp upfront turning thin into a lasting grapefruit finish.
