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.

bottle. hazy golden body with fluffy white head. tart soapy funky aroma with a hint of cheese is rather pleasant. some funkiness and tart apple flavour. decent. I found it to be a little bit over carbonated but it’s always nice to try a new gueuze.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2005
A Mes rate: Both the aroma and flavour are buttery and slightly metalic with maybe some vanilla cake. Very slight funk and barnyard. Iron type flavour coming through instantly in the finish followed by a pleasant hint of strawberry. Too much carbonation for me. It’s all bubbles in the palate. Not the best geuze I have tried but fair. The Mariage Parfait is infinitely better. It settles quite a lot in the bottle. The last last bit is very cloudy but smoother and not as tart.

ClarkVV (3891) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 19, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2006 Bottle. No date anywhere to be found. Light copper-gold with some darker maize hues. Relatively small white head for the style. Aroma is lightly tannic and tart, but has a sharper flavor, like a mix of soda water and lemon juice. Bitter almost, perhaps white vinegar comes to mind. Flavor is tart, solid medium to medium-full body, texture is coarse, sharp almost. Seems very young, though it is not syrupy or too sweet, just very rough. Little complexity to be found, just a solid yeast tartness. Light pinot grigio notes on the finish.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2005
Couleur dorée assez pale et transparente, abritant une grosse mousse blanche concassé persistante et presque crémeuse. Légèrement tartrique, les aromes, rappellent la terre, la couverture de cheval, le vieux bois, le fromage bleu et en demeure toujours plus sur un ton floral que citronné. L’acidité est présente mais jamais très prononcée. Corps approprié de densité moyenne. Finale légèrement métallique. Bouteille importation privées Bieropholie automne 2004.

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2007 (Bottle) Pours a lightly cloudy golden body with a large rocky egg-white head. Mild sour and tart aroma (for a gueuze). Mild sourness with a dry finish. Does not have the bite of a great gueuze, but still a descent beer.

jollyraider (252) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 1, 2005
Hey, this is rated pretty low. But it’s my first actual lambic, and from the cork popping off on its own to the last tangy drop, I really enjoyed it. Very funky, tart, lively. Maybe the bottle’s age helped. I look forward to more lambic adventures.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2005
Bottled. 2000/2001. Cloudy golden with a fizzy, rich head. This geuze seemed very mature and rounded in mouthfeel, with notes of wood and gooseberry. Dry and tart but not overly. Very pleasant and quaffable.
Earlier Rating: 3/28/2004 Total Score: 2.9
Bottled. Earthy aroma. Harsh bitterness. Long dry finish. Geuze is not my thing - yet!

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - APR 14, 2005
Another Gueuze with training wheels. Nice and overly clean with a very soft acidity. Wheat malt is overlt prominent with some citrus acid and mild fruit. Good for A Gueuze newby but just soso for the diehard fanatic.
