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.

Looks like a Hoegaarden. First second of taste is OK, but the taste disappears very fast. A hint of nice bitterness,but not sour enough.

arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 13, 2009
375ml bottle with a best by date of 02/2028. Nice golden color with an initially thick white head. It smells dusty, funk, must, and a bit of citrus candy. The taste is like a bit of sour lemon juice but the mouthfeel seems a little watery much like the other Boon Gueuze. Decent gueuze but I’d prefer a Cantillon for the same price.

I cannot believe it took me this long to rate Boon. Great dry and lightly sour stuff. The acidity makes this go rather nicely with food (though I am something of an anti-"beer with food" guy). Great mouthfeel, as it is carbonated just right. Any more carbonation and I think the overall effect of the sourness and acidity would be a little too much.

PorterPounder (7303) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2009
Tallahassee, Fl. - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Dark golden , slightly murky pour with a soft, foamy white head. Strong earthy scent with some barnyard and horseblanket aromas. Smells very "wild" and natural. Flavor is full bodied and full of sourness. Some sour grapefruit, vinegar, and some unrecognizable, yet delectable extreme sourness. Mouthfeel is dry and very crisp. Probably one of the best guezes I have had.

Pours gold into a tumbler. Bright white head with excellent retention leaves spot lacing. Grapefruit aromas. Sour and crisp upfront turning thin into a lasting grapefruit finish.

beerlady (556) - lucerne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 29, 2009
brewery-season 2005-2006 hazy yellow, offwhite head lasts not very long smooth carbonation smells sourish-sweetish ,a bit yeasty,some hops tasts sourish-sweetish,but the sourness is not so strong and the sweetness not strong too,so it seems me milder than other geuzes, tasts of some kitchen herbs too, for example dried celleri-leawes ,some citrus aftertaste some sourness, bitterness and herbs gas not that champagne-like hint of other geuzes a smooth geuze, would be good for geuze beginners, for not bee too astonished like by other geuzes

Feinschmecker (202) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Bottle. Very hazy and citric sour aroma. Tart and a nice balance of sourness on the palate. The carbonation creates a rather dry and clean finish. Very nice.
