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.

My second gueuze and after how much I liked the hansenns I was looking forward to this one. This actually was less scary in the aroma of hansenns, but not as enjoyable. I liked the tartness, but something in the aftertaste didnít sit right.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2009
From the bottle pours a hazy, golden orange sunset colored body. A tall column of off-white froth the simmers to a small but lasting layer. Semi-sticky splotches of lacing mark the glass like paintball splatters. The nose shows moderately funky, musty farmhouse notes along with lemony, citric acidity and dusty brett. Flavors of sour lemon and traces of apricot play nicely with the dry, musty, barnyard brett and funky, old oak. Semi-dry and effervescent on the tongue, thereís a champagne-like mouthfeel on this one, minus the sweetness. Soft sourness is the theme here, making this a nice transition lambic that wonít scare away a newcomer, yet remains satisfying enough to the experienced folks. Good beer.

Bottle. Sour musty aroma. Cloudy orange body, small creamy white head. Taste is very dry, with some light sourness. Very pleasant and refined.

Bottle my local major Supermarket decided to clear out at 25% off....bonus. I guess there arenít enough sour beer drinkers in this part of town. Date on label 06.08.2027. Lovely golden color, acidic aroma. Effervescent and tart, leading into sour. Very tasty and one of the easier drinking geuzes Iíve tried. The tartness dulls a bit as my mouth gets used to it, but retains enough pucker to keep it enjoyable. Wishing I would have picked up quite a few more at clear-out prices. Serving type: bottle

Geuzelambix (243) - KÝbenhavn, DENMARK - APR 18, 2009
A pleasant acidic aroma is a forplay for a darker and more alcoholic taste, than many other gueze sport. Something brutal is lurking underneath the taste, without bursting entirely to the surface. I had the 2005-06 edition.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2009
Bottle, Dram Shop, Sheffield. 2005-06. Hazy golden colour with a very lively dissipating off white head. Enticingly complex aroma ; oaky and sour, da funk, and prickly citrus notes, revealed itself further with each sniff. Certainly a bubbly affair. Flavour a treat; funky sour, fruity ní fresssshhhhhhh; becoming gobi dry. I would probably rather drink one of these instead of a glass of champagne. Straight outta the top drawer.

NomDeBeer (414) - Maryland, USA - APR 8, 2009
Heavily carbonated - bounced the cork off the cieling after opening. Light body and very fizzy. Sizable fluffy white head above a very hazy gold beer. Aroma is lots of lemons and hay, some yeast, but little funk. Taste is the same - did I mention lots of lemons? Tart, sour, and refreshing. Good beer, but for $10, itís not worth the price of admission.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 5, 2009
Bottle 2003-2004. Orange colour with a white head. Sour, acidic funky and dry, but very balanced. Lemon, green apples, light oak, light cheese. Very refreshing.

unclemike (2870) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - APR 4, 2009
Pour is pale ruddy golden with a big bubbled off white head...smell is straw and funky horseblanket with a hint of sour drifting in...taste is definately dry and funky with lots of musty and dirty flavors...some strange bitterness comes on just before the swallow where some faint tartness comes out...decent, bot not amazing
