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.

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 (1867) - 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 Iíve tried to date.

veronika (410) - SWEDEN - JAN 1, 2005
Hazy yellow, small head. Aroma from sour dough and citrus. Citrus shows immediately in the flavor together with yeast and some vinous notes.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2004
Funk--o-licious. Big springtime barnyard aroma, musty. This bubbling golden brew is sweet, citrus frutis and tart upfront and becomes dusty, musty and dry in the finish with a lingering funk.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - DEC 19, 2004
Bottle in Clockwork Brewery, Glasgow. Yellow/orange, not much head. Aroma of lemon/orange/peach/mild farmyard/oak. Much sweeter in taste than the Cantillon we had alongside, but refreshing and tart nonetheless. Acidic oaky finish.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - DEC 10, 2004
Very tart, sour aroma, lots of lemon, salt. Body is a light amber with orange, very thin bubbly head lasts. Mouthfeel is too bubbly. Taste is watery and sour, one sided. I like it, but compared to the others Iíve had it doesnít compare.

JCW (1274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 6, 2004
Golden color, pour with a frothy white head. Aroma is fruity and tart, almost like a slightly sour dry white wine. It does have leathery and funky character. Flavor is moderately acidic. Finish is fruity up front and fairly dry on the tail end.
