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.

I could see the reference to Champagne being true as this tart, sparkling, and hop- laden beer produced a similar aroma. My first taste reminded me that I had this once before at a party as it has an unexpected taste if you have been drinking hearty ales previously.

Sammy (9190) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2007
Smell of yeast, and alcohol. This is dry, sparkling, with a retaining crowning head of gold onto apple juice colour. Taste has characteristics of apple juice and much better deeper in the meal, and not as interesting outiside of geuze geeks before. Not too dry nor sweet.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2007 250 ml bottle. Firm off-white head over hazy, plain golden body. Aromas of apples and grapefruit with wooden and slight earthy notes. Taste is acidulous fruity and rather subdued for the style; mainly citrus and apples, without any heavy sourness or tartness. Still enough acidity to make it utterly refreshing. Crisp and dry mouthfeel.. Easy to like and very quenching.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2008 Bottle. Pours cloudy dark orange with amber highlights. Rich frothy head that dissapates quickly. Quite sour on the nose. Barnyard at dawn; wet, musty yet slightly fruity.. farm-y. Quite firm on the palate. Very metallic tasting (copper). Slightly dry and hoppy. Dry cherry notes develop, but still quite iron-y. Maybe my bottle needed more time. Tasted too young. Not oaky enough.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Translucent, magnifying pale caramel with only a few sulphite strings on top. Tart screams out of the gate. Barn planks stricken by the sun, followed by soured chardonnay grapes, parched picnic baskets and key lime time. High, tart flavor crests subside into the lemon buttered sweetened nips. Carbonation pipes up a more active body while the souring lemon currents weave through sourdough for a tart and sweet bready treat. Something whispers sandalwood and then takes on salt water by sandy shores. Mild, aged hops and cheese-like suggestions. The waves lap fervently and flavorfully as we remember our May palisade. Thanks, Blake!

1FastSTi (3341) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 9, 2007
The beer pours to a hazy coppery golden body with a nice white head and awesome lacing. The aroma is pretty awesome too. Sour, tart, acidic, funky cheese (aged Brie, Blue, and aged Havarti). The flavor is sour, tart, and acidic. Nicely blended but there’s nothing really super outstanding. The palate is tart and acidic. Not as sour or as complex as I want in a gueuze.

larsga (6446) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2011 Huge white lasting head. Hazy deep yellow body with slow carbonation. Deep waxy barnyard aroma with wooden floral marzipan notes. Clean and fresh. Strong dry-acidic wooden floral apple taste with barnyard metal notes. Mid-bodied. Sharp mouthfeel, slightly fizzy. Sharply dry herbal wooden floral aftertaste with barnyard and mineral notes. Highly unusual, and a much fuller-bodied geuze than the norm. I found it very drinkable. (0.375l bottle, Beer Palace, Oslo. Rated it in 2007, too, but didn’t understand it at all back then.)

KnutAlbert (6312) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2007
75 cl bottle. Full creamy head on top of a golden cloudy beer. Sourness, sure, but also a round fruitiness. Oaky finsih, very dry. Nice stuff.

thebeertourist (4996) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2007
75 cl bottle. Cloudy amber colour, fine white head. Lemony nose, hints of cheese. Woody flavours, lemons, ending very dry. Fizzy, with a medium body. Rich and complex as you would expect an oude geuze.
