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.

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!

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 thereís nothing really super outstanding. The palate is tart and acidic. Not as sour or as complex as I want in a gueuze.

larsga (6621) - 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 didnít understand it at all back then.)

KnutAlbert (6364) - 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 (5069) - 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.

355ml, date is unknown but i found this on clearance for $3.99! pours clear pale-copper with white head. nose is lots of vinegar, flowers, faint rotton egg, and some barnyard funk. flavor is rather unrefined, a watered down sourness taste at first, brett, earthy, and finishes mildly sweet and dry. mouthfeel is full and carbination is high. alcohol isnít noticed. the nose and flavor just isnít very good. although this did the job of taking care of this geueze craving i had all day (it is tasty), this is really on the bottom end of the wonderful world of geueze. Iíll age the other ones i bought on clearance for 4-10 years.

As I try to get into the world of lambics, this one has been the most tolerable for me. The cork popped just like a champagne bottle. Sour and funky as the rest of lambics usually are. Iíll eventually find my way.

bluevegie (3066) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 26, 2007
Sour citrus nose with slight barnyard must, hazy orange straw body. Sourness comes through to the taste but not as full on, more fruit flavours and a dry finish.
