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.

hazy golden pour with slight head. aroma is brett with some tart lemon citrus. Flavor reflects this, carbonation is perfect, a little agitated but nice and crisp. great palate. Flavor is funky and dry, lemon and brett. some white wine notes and oakiness. Nice, simple and refreshing. a nice pure example of the style

Pours a hazy golden tan with a minimal bubbly head. Aroma is very funky, with some tart citrus, and seems to be quite dry. Flavor is quite sharp again with the citrus, and the sparkly carbonation fades to an incredibly dry finish. Not an incredible lambic, but I really like the mouthfeel- markedly above average brew.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2009
Presentation: It was poured from a green corked and caged 335ml bottle into a tulip glass. There is a best before date of 25-04-2027 on the bottle. Appearance: The body has a hazy golden orange color with lots of beautiful Champaign like carbonation. On top there is a lively, big, fluffy head with a creamy off white color. It fades slowly but hangs on to a thin covering that make some slick lacing on the glass. Smell: The aroma is interesting and complex. In the nose there is notes of apples, apple cider vinegar, light oak notes, wet wool and rose petals. Taste/Mouth Feel: Its flavor is just as complex as the aroma. There is a little bit of astringent citrus with hard apple cider notes that give it a nice sharp sour character. Also there are some floral notes, dry hay and light woody oak notes and next to no hops. The finish has a sharp dry sour oak finish. The body is about medium with lively mouth feel and lively active carbonation. Notes: Outstanding, a very good example of the style.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JUL 20, 2009
Bottle during the first annual Chicago Sour Tasting. Vintage ’05 thanks to Andrew. Clear amber/orange with small, creamy white head. Sweet, stinky, barnyard aroma. Sweeter grain flavor with barnyard, cheesey, soda, meh. Light and slightly watery body. Not as good as many other geuzes.

j12601 (9565) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2009
Bottle at the Cuvee de Castleton release at Captain Lawrence. This one was a 94, and it’s age certainly showed. Aromas were a lot of acetaldehyde. Very broken down, sweet, and not very sour anymore. Sort of the skeleton of what used to probably be a very solid beer.

MiP (15304) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2009
Bottle, 6.5%. Beautifully sour aroma, creamy and slightly funky. Cloudy orange colour. Small stable white head. Very well-balanced flavour, citric and mild. Good earthy flavour as well.

Anker (723) - Hillerød, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2010 2001 bottle at Plan B. Pours golden with a quickly disappearing small white head Aroma is sweet with notes of hay, apples, grape and fainting prune. It has a sour, tart and fermented flavour with nutty, sour-sweet apple and metal notes in the after taste. Have obviously not been stored properly.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2009
Exploding carpet ruining bottle. Aroma of fruit, apricot, pear, apple cider. Very lively on the tongue and heavily carbonated. Flavour is not as heavy as the smell, a good thing in my eyes. Very enjoyable.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 1, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy peach color with a soft, bubbly, off-white head. Aromas of pear, tart apple, a touch of yeast, grass, and apple cider vinegar. Highly carbonated with a light, dry mouthfeel. Tart apple, floral notes, strong earthy bitterness, a bit of lime, and a sort of a dry dustiness on the palate. Short finish with some lingering apple and pear notes. Overall okay, but a little light in the flavor department.
