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.

Thinner in body than some gueze with flavors lingering less. Bone dry and fun to drink but doesnít stand up to some of its counterparts.

Pours a yellow-golden color. Aroma is skunky and sour. Taste is sour with a vinegar and grape/apple mixture. Not as sour and complicated as I expected.

Bottle provided by jrob21. Pours hazy yellow with a small, fizzy, white head, lasting with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (grain, hay, straw), average hops (flowers, grass), average yeast (barnyard, earth) with notes of green apples and grapes. Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish. Average duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.

2002 vintage. Gorgeous golden colour topped by a huge frothy head. Great aroma, earthy and tart with a strong funky and musty character. Very lovely soft tartness. Fresh and fruity. Lightly perfumey aroma. A very approachable gueuze. Soft acidity on the back.

12.7 oz bottle purchased at South Bay Drugs and Liquor. This lambic created a violent glowing yellow in my flute and looked similar to a chemistry experiment in a beaker. The nose was a sour fruit smell with a notice of alcohol. In the flavor, more or less the same thing, but I would be able to get more detailed. The sourness detected is similar to a unripe lemon or a juicy green lime and leaves behind the smallest aftertaste of bitter salt. From the description Iíve given this almost sounds like a tequila or margarita. Also, I wonít forget to mention the very minor fruit flavor of green apple, pear and grape, although, very complicated once I swallow the mouthful and then Iím left with a state of confusion.
