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.

bottle: pours an orangy hay colour with a large fluffy white head. aroma is sour almost a little skunky, aroma also of unripe apples, but a little sweetness too. the flavour is a little thin and weak a small amount of soue apple flavour with a little sweetness. finishes quick and with hardly any drying. i love gueze and this seems sub-par and lacking alot of the strong qualities like in gueze.

355 ml bottle. I have tried several lambics and generally have liked them, but had not yet sampled a geuze. I saw this one at Whole Foods Market and decided to give it a shot. The cork flies out of the bottle similar to champagne. Lively pour with a dull gold body and a large white head with decent lacing. Sour, kind of funky aroma that was not pleasant, but not entirely unpleasant either. The flavor did nothing for me; sour (which I normally like), but also salty (which I do not like). There was also a weird taste that I could not put my finger on and can best describe as wet dog. I did not detect any fruit flavors. SInce this beer has a decent overall rating, I’m assuming geuze is not a style I care for, although I am glad I tried it for the experince.

Really not my style. Give me champagne or give me beer. Don’t give me both. Pours with a beautiful head, but the tartness and light bitterness really don’t do it for me. Not terrible though, just not my cup of tea

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2007 Sour, barnyard and horseblanket with yeast weirdness. Amber colored and a moderate head. Sour flavor, but not sour enough. Light acid, some citrus, and lots of yeast. Very nice.

Hmm what a disappointment. So i have had a few of teh Lindemans Lambic Fruits, but this was horrid. Aroma was pungent. Appearance was like that of a cheap pilsner. Mouthfeel was very very sour. Flavor was harsh and not enjoyable. 8 bucks for hell. Only thing good was to get another style on my list.

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - MAR 1, 2007
Pours a clear pilsner-like golden color with a nice light tan head. Nice tart nose of green apple and cherry. Nice tart earthy flavor, but its a slightly watery mouthfeel. There is a slight metalllic feel to it, but it is still good. Great nose and upfront tart flavor, but the finish is somewhat lacking.

Lots of white head on this honey colored pour. notes of tart fruit in the nose. Dry and tart with mild carbonation.

reakt (949) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Bottle 2000-01 from Dovetail. Golden in colour topped with a thin foamy head. Yeasty champagne aroma with notes of cork and barn. Taste of pickled oranges (if ever there were such a thing), lemon, lime and cork. Doh! Short, salty dry finish. Slightly bitter with an acidic citrus edge. A good beginner gueuze. Shara hated it, but I thought it was ok.

Bottle. Thought I had rated this before, oh well. Hazy orange/amber color with a medium sized white head. Nice funky, tart aroma of citrus, wet leather and dirty socks(in a good way). Flavor starts off mildly sweet before turning tart. Citrus fruit, a touch of Brett and an astringent, grassy finish. Enjoyable, but not on par with the great gueuzes IMO.
