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.

Hazy golden pour with a large but rapidly diminishing head. Aroma is citric, funky, sour, and a bit woody. Flavor has a nice funky sourness with a bit of nuttiness from the wood. Tart, but not overly so - smooth and highly drinkable. A solid gueuze.

37.5cL bottle, best before sometime in 2026. Glad I popped it now before it turned. Fantastic looking beer, big fluffy white head atop a deep orange beer, great head retention and lacing. Big oaky aroma, lots of tartness, some tropical fruit. Somewhat mild flavor for Boon, very balanced tartness, very smooth. While not my favorite Gueuze, would be a great everyday choice.

The green, 12 oz., corked and caged bottle was picked up at Green’s, and warmed up to cellar temperature before opening. The cork came out readily while I was trying to insert the corkscrew, and the pour was bubbly and restrained. The body was pale yellow with a lot of haze. The smell was acidic with loads of barnyard horse blanket due to the wondrous handiwork of the wild yeast and bacteria. The taste was cidery, tart, oaky, bone dry, and not quite as funky as the other Geuzes I’ve tasted before. Very refreshing, and a touch thicker than most blended lambics. Very easy to drink and a lot more approachable, due to the lack of mouth puckering acidity, when compared to Cantillon.

Bottle @ YNWA, Kolding.
[Vintage 2001-2002]
Pours a clear pale golden amber. An impressively nice, creamy white head form and stays for an incredible amount of time - considering this is a spontaneous fermented bottle. No lacing. Aroma is funky, light fruity, some barnyard, men generally rather mild. Fair mouthfeel that dries out nicely. Flavours contain light caramel, subdued tartness, wood and a nice fruitiness. Not my favourite Geuze, but better than most Boon offerings.

Bottle date 2003-2004. Opened with a loud pop. Clear, bright gold with a white head. That slightly vegetal champagne aroma with a curious hint of tomato juice. Sour grapefruit taste like a very dry cider, with a sharp bitter finish.
