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.

Pours hazy amber with a big bubbly head. The aroma is musty and funky, with apples and cherries in the background. The first sip starts out slightly sweet, then finishes with a champagne-like dryness. There’s more apples, funk, horseblanket. The carbonation is a bit distracting and bites at times. This is my first gueze, and I have to say it grew on me as I finished my glass. Looking forward to trying this one again.

Rciesla (5500) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Very fresh bottle, i think maybe a year or two on it. Pours a champagne body with a huge explosive white rocky head. Lemon citric acid, some subtle dry woody tart lemon with low acidity. Lactic acid and some woodiness rounds this one out.

Bloekie (210) - BELGIUM - MAR 18, 2009
(Corked bottle.) Truly golden color with a creamy head. A lot of acidity. Tastes like lemon and bitterness. Good geuze.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - MAR 15, 2009
Bottle. Poured a clear golden color with a 1/4 inch thick white head that faded to a thin layer. Aroma of tart citrus (orange and lemon, light peach), some funk (barnyard and horse blanket), and a moderate yeastiness (some cobweb). Tart, lightly funky entry leads into a sour (lemon and hints of grapefruit), funky barnyard yeastiness with some cobweb and horse blanket that finishes with a kiss of oak. Soft carbonation. A solid geuze I could drink pretty much any time.

dalekliz (908) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 14, 2009
Bottle at O’Brien’s, thanks to WeeHeavySD for sharing! Pours a clear amber-gold with a thick foamy white head. Big rich sour aroma, of lemon, yeast, and malt. Taste is a bit lighter, sour, of lemon and yeast. Lingering sourness that fades to a bit watery. Decent.

Stefano (1956) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2009
Pours cloudy dark orange with amber highlights. The aroma is sour, tart and acidic. Flavor is also moderate sour and very fresh. Refreshing and light, well brewed.

bluesickboy (13) - Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Wow didn’t quite know what I was getting into. The aroma is wonderful with a nice floral scent. When you take the first sip BAM, this is a sour beer. Once I knew what was going on it had an interesting flavor very citrusy... I am going to have to come back to this one.

Rusty (1545) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 6, 2009
Pours a nice hazy yellowish orange with a sparkling white head. Aroma is lemon, funk, asprin, sour, acidic lambic goodness. Flavor is sour, funky, applejuice, astringent, acidic, asprin, garbage, touch of sweetness. Decent Gueuze.

Jmichael (640) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - FEB 25, 2009
offers a solid pour with full white fizxy head that last just as long as it should, beautiful look as the head offers the perfect event horizon to the beer through the glass, mild aroma that hits you as your bring the glass up for a sip, mild subtleties are the initial note as the aroma is so initial, but as you enjoy this drink more it just gets better with the warmth of the room. good stuff, and fun to drink

lobotomizer (1) - USA - FEB 25, 2009 does not count
This is an incredibly refreshing brew and very food friendly. Geuze’s are hard to come by here so I have’nt tried many to compare but there’s almost no better accompaniment to pizza than this!
