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.

Helder geurig en levendig bier. Smaak is zuur en droog, zuur fruit en licht kruidig. Smaak blijft lang hangen. Seizoen 2010-2011.

MarkoNm (257) - SLOVENIA - APR 20, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy golden color, topped witha couple of fingers of white head that immediately disappears. Lots of bubbles in there. The aroma is soury, between new wine and cider. The taste is quite sharp, soury and dry. Don’t really like it, sorry.

SimonTja (99) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2014
25 cl, 2008 bottle. Yellow with a faint head. Aroma of grass, funk, barnyard. Taste is of grapefruit rind, lemony zest, very earthy, and some doughyish character, it develops to a more complex and more fruit forward when it gets warmer, grapefruit is very clear, quite evened out and well balanced.

blackisle (464) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2014
Corked and caged bottle 37.5 cl, brew season 2010-2011. Hazy orange amber, mostly lasting, nice frothy off-white head, reduces to a lasting creamy layer, good lacing, lively carbonation; fresh sour aroma, hay, vinegar, citrus, apple cider, oak; taste is moderate sour, slightly sweet; medium body, watery texture; lasting dry sour finish, mineral notes. Bit sharp. Very good classic sour geuze.

Barwa: złota, klarowna. Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, szybko opadająca. Aromat: kwaśny, piwniczny, korkowy. Klasyka. Smak: kwaśny, wykręcający kubki smakowe. Niewielkie nuty jabłkowe. Alkohol prawie niewyczuwalny.

330ml bottle @ the 3rd Shrewsbury Bottle Share, courtesy of Jon. Has a typically wincing sourness with thin vibrant bubbles and sour apple sweets / green apple skin piercing through the palette. A classic.
