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.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2007
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.

SDalkoholic (2274) - Linda Vista, California, USA - OCT 26, 2007
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 I’ve given this almost sounds like a tequila or margarita. Also, I won’t forget to mention the very minor fruit flavor of green apple, pear and grape, although, very complicated once I swallow the mouthful and then I’m left with a state of confusion.

Cloudy orange/golden colour, with a huge dense white head. Aroma has barnyard, citrus and apple. Flavour is mostly sour apple and lemon. Sparkling and refreshing. Finishes dry.

bombshelter (349) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 21, 2007
Bottle, de Kring, Lembeek. Pale gold, good-sized white head, well carbonated. Tight, punchy tart up front, but the finish is dry, funky. Aroma is class geuze: apples, tart, citrus. Good, but lacking some complexity when compared to the blenders. Very drinkable, could quaff the heck out of this one on a hot summer day.

Miksu (5030) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2007
0.375 l bottle, 2003-2004 vintage. Golden-copper color with surprisingly thick and persistent head. Sour, refreshing, sulphury, bready, lemony, grapefruity and perfumed aroma. Acidic, grapefruity and lemony flavor with hints of cork.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 30, 2007
2001 vintage small bottle. No pop on the cork, but slight carbonation- wierd spotty cobwebby foam and sporatic lace. Murky coppery brown body. Mustly, dirty, dusty, earth, lactic, funk, and some light cherry pit aroma. Sharp lactic and acetic acid flavor especialy upfront, and even burns through to the back of my nose like a strong vinegar. Sharp cheesy flavor, some ammonia, farmhouse funk, tons of lacto and acetobacter bacteria. Moderately sour in the finish with some more cherry and cherry pit astringency. Good drying bitter, and sour mouthfeel. Pretty good queze overall. Unique for sure.

wheninhell (488) - chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2007
slightly hazy dark golden with a white head that settles into a thin film. aroma...eh...dry grassy aroma with a little lemon and apple. its good i just dont get that intense horse blanket feeling that you get from most lambics...it almost reminds me of a pilsner. tart sour apple with a hint of lemon...nice sweet backbone with light bitter dry grassy notes. dry very dry tart sour apple and lemon finish with light dry bitter grassy notes...hay? light to medium body sparkling carbonation. at first i didn’t like this beer at all because it is so different from the other geuzes i have had (hanssens cantillon) but after drinking the bottle it is growing on me. i will have to try this one again.

greig (253) - Hamilton, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 19, 2007
Pours an appetising cloudy orange, with an off white head. The aroma is of rotting citrus - sounds awful I know, but is actually quite enticing. Firmly sour on the palate with complex herbal and almost grape notes, and hints of lemon which persist in the long bitter finish.
