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.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2005
Couleur dorée assez pale et transparente, abritant une grosse mousse blanche concassé persistante et presque crémeuse. Légèrement tartrique, les aromes, rappellent la terre, la couverture de cheval, le vieux bois, le fromage bleu et en demeure toujours plus sur un ton floral que citronné. L’acidité est présente mais jamais très prononcée. Corps approprié de densité moyenne. Finale légèrement métallique. Bouteille importation privées Bieropholie automne 2004.

bu11zeye (11760) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2007 (Bottle) Pours a lightly cloudy golden body with a large rocky egg-white head. Mild sour and tart aroma (for a gueuze). Mild sourness with a dry finish. Does not have the bite of a great gueuze, but still a descent beer.

jollyraider (252) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 1, 2005
Hey, this is rated pretty low. But it’s my first actual lambic, and from the cork popping off on its own to the last tangy drop, I really enjoyed it. Very funky, tart, lively. Maybe the bottle’s age helped. I look forward to more lambic adventures.

Hazy golden yellow. Thick white head. Sour yeast, green apple nose. Acidic, sour flavour. Thick mouthfeel. Long sour palate. A bit salty.

rickgordon (3841) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2005
Bottled. 2000/2001. Cloudy golden with a fizzy, rich head. This geuze seemed very mature and rounded in mouthfeel, with notes of wood and gooseberry. Dry and tart but not overly. Very pleasant and quaffable.
Earlier Rating: 3/28/2004 Total Score: 2.9
Bottled. Earthy aroma. Harsh bitterness. Long dry finish. Geuze is not my thing - yet!

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - APR 14, 2005
Another Gueuze with training wheels. Nice and overly clean with a very soft acidity. Wheat malt is overlt prominent with some citrus acid and mild fruit. Good for A Gueuze newby but just soso for the diehard fanatic.

Bockyhorsey (2609) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 11, 2005
Fermented aroma, fruity. Flavor was tangy, fruity flavor. Thought I was drinking a bottle of champagne rather than a beer Good none the less

Cornfield (5362) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2005 This poured a clear golden color with a lofty, fizzy yellow head. The aroma is both sour and floral. The flavor is sour and a bit funky, lemony with old straw. It’s got a dry, winey finish with a tartness that can make the mouth soon begin to water.

BBB63 (5740) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 4, 2005
Rich golden hue topped by a lasting fizzy head and good lace. The aroma is quite tradional with a lot of funk and barnyard notes, a hint of french oak, and a touch of grape and sour apple. The taste starts twangy with minor citric notes and a drop of balsamic vinegar. Undertones of flowers and heather finishing with a dry woody tannic snap and that yeast powered chesse quality. The feel is fizzy and refreshing. Well, then many thanks to Joe for the bottle.
