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.

wetherel (1856) - Cupertino, California, USA - NOV 21, 2008
$6.99 bottle from PP bottle shop. Yellow amber color. Lots of carbonation, but head fades quickly. Strong, strong skunky aroma. Some other nice funky notes, but the skunk overwhelms. Green glass bottle. Nice mellow sour flavor.

Embrouille (2835) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 20, 2008
Bottled 37.5cl. Appearance: It pours a beautiful hazy copper beer with a tall extremely nicely remaining creamy off white head. Fantastic lacework. Beautiful carbonation. A lot of tiny bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Aroma: Lemon peel, rhubarb, white grapes and raspberry accompanied by a decent amount of vinegar and apples. Flavor and palate: Nice sourness. Champagne-like. Light bodied. Hints of apples showing up. Overall impression: Decent. Probably really great accompanying seafood.

KyotoLefty (8748) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 20, 2008
2005-6 bottle. Deep blonde, cloudy, with tons of bubbles. Sour, fragrant, citrus aroma, with grass, barnyard. Sour, funky flavor. Lots of lemon, very dry. Light, bubbly body. Not thye most interesting of the style, but still very accessible and good stuff.

f351c4v (411) - Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Bottle dated 2000-2001, who knows how long this was hiding in my stash... Initially pours a clear golden color with a small white head, lots of carbonation. Definitely clouds with each extra pour. Very funky nose, barnyard-hay mixture, a hint of lemon. Light, spritzy body, vinegar, bright citrus. Dry finish, not as sour as some, but still a great representation of the style.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - OCT 20, 2008
Forceful -pop- to the cork, thick white head was held up easily with the multitude of bubbles. Bit of lemon and oak on the nose, clear on the edges, sparkling yellow in the middle. The tart character is more lemon rind than lemon juice and most of the flavor resides on the roof of my mouth, way in the back.

TheJollyOne (230) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 19, 2008
Pours a hazy gold body with a quickly diminishing head. Smells of citrus peel, lime, some faint hops. The taste is a sour blend of many citus fruits and their peels, hints of sweet and then bitter come and go on every sip. Very fizzy on the palate.

garrison (808) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - OCT 18, 2008
From a bottle at "Ludlow Wines" in Cincinnati, Ohio - A very "winey" lambic (ala Rodenbacher), made from blending old and new lambics and the bottle-aging the mixture for years. It pours a golden, fruity smelling breww with a small white head of foam.

dj (556) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2008
Bottle, 375ml. A hazy golden colour with a large head. Aroma is funky, with undertones of sour citrus fruit with some hop notes coming through. Flavour of slightly sour citrus fruit, hops and Belgian yeast with an acidic yet slightly sweet finish. Yes, this is somewhat reminiscent of Champagne and would make an interesting substitute. An enjoyable brew.
