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, best by "12/13/2022". This stuff is very well carbonated, pours with a big fluffy white head over a hazy light amber body. Thick frosty lacing on the glass. Appetizing aroma, has a good balance of sweet and tart. Caramel and vanilla cake with rhubarb and vinegar, wood accents. The flavor leans more towards the tart side with metallic grapefruit rind and rhubarb overshadowing grapefruit flesh sweetness and cracker. Dry flavor, I think I like my geuzes to have a bigger malt profile.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 8, 2005
Golden with a large white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is sourness with lots of citrus. Taste is dry, sour, citrus and lively with carbonation. Ends tart. Only complaint is that its slightly acidic but that seems to be part of the gueze. Like a good champagne.

Bottle. Golden colored with a very large white head. Beautiful lacing left. Aroma is funked out for sure. Sour, a little stale with barest hints of citrus. Very dry. This sucked all moisture away for seconds at a time. Well carbonated with it dancing on the tongue and roof of my mouth. Sour and tart flavors with just a hint of sweetness. Hints of saline. Very nice.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - FEB 27, 2005
Pours gold with a very long lasting medium white head. Nice funky aroma with some sugary and lemon notes. Great combination of sweet and sour flavour. Nice citric notes, with some vinegar. Very refreshing cleansing palate. Good!

heemer77 (5096) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - FEB 24, 2005
Deep gold with some orange color. Huge head. Aroma is vinegar and some lemons. Also the typical hay and barnyard. The taste is very sour with lemons and some balsamic vinegar. A touch of apples and hay. This is a decent version of the style. Best by December 11, 2022.

GilBier (75) - Dendermonde, BELGIUM - FEB 15, 2005
Yellow color with greenish reflexion and fizzy white head. Sour apple in the nose with some oxidation. Grassy accent and hint of white wine. Taste is fizzy and elegant sour. Afthertaste turnes into a bitterness that is well integrated in this Gueuze.

ChrisPants (317) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 10, 2005
SMELLS LIKE PIG POO mixed with rotting poisonous berries. Tastes like crappy Italian champagne mixed with lye. Mouthfeel is crappy Italian champagne mixed with lye. Super sour battery acid finish. Glad to see this one is out of commission. Bottle says "Enjoy by Dec 12, 2022." NOT BLOODY LIKELY!!!!!!

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 4, 2005
Hazy light copper color with a tall cream colored head. Barnyard, cobwebs, light cider vinegar, light grape and sweet malt underneath. Light and lively feel. Simple, yes; well made, yes; but all the qualities of one would look for in a decent guezue. Rhubarb tartness with a long and lasting malt background.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 13, 2005
Not the freshest aroma. Cloudy, pours almost like a cider would. Very dry and crisp. Not bad, but not great.

JonMoore (1841) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2005
Cloudy, old gold colour with a big off-white head. Aroma is sour, fresh and barnyardy. Taste is nicely sour, not as vinegary as some geuze. Quite highly carbonated and dry. It is not like champagne; champagne is crap over rated french wine, this is a nice lambic. Best Geuze I’ve tried to date.
