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.

jakubwloszcz (108) - Piastów, POLAND - JUN 26, 2016
Barwa złota, zamglona. Piana obfita, bardzo ładna, drobnopęcherzykowa. Aromat zapowiada już kwaśność: czuć niedojrzałe owoce: cytrynę, winogrona i lekką stajnię. W smaku kwaśność jest umiarkowana, znów dominują owoce, ale dochodzi do tego lekkie drewno i trochę słodyczy. Goryczka niska, ale w ustach zostają fajne, długie posmaki.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2016 375ml bottle, 2013-2014 on the neck. Refrigerated. Taste all about sour with little citrus and slightest of bitter. Smells like faded funk, great carbonation. All in all too sour to appreciate the other sides of lambic.

20160605 Home; 37.5 cl bottle; bb 20350630; brew of 2013-2014: Dark yellow beer with a tinny fine white foam layer and slightly cloudy. A smell of a cellar, sour fruit (like apple cider) and old cheese. Taste is sour, but within a nice balance of slightly sweet and bitter. The fruity taste of sour apples, white grapes and berries make the taste complete and complex. Hard to describe everything. Good beer for the lovers of geuze. There is also a feeling of dryness of the sour taste.

bonev (92) - POLAND - MAY 29, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2016 Kolor pomaranczowy, piwo metne. Piana szybko znika. W aromacie cytrusy, ocet i kwasnosc. Czuc delikatnie dzikie aromaty stajni. W smaku lekkie z minimalna goryczka. Raczej w strone kwasna i wytrawna. Troche jak ocet jablkowy i sok z cytryny razem polaczone. Lekkie i orzezwiajace. Brakuje mi troche kontry slodyczy.

Cimbasso (667) - - MAY 29, 2016
Sampled from the 2012/13 brewing season from a bottle purchased at Belgisk Bryg in Copenhagen (highly recommended - a very friendly place!). The beer is a cloudy golden colour with a foaming white head. Delicious aromas of sour fruit and a taste which is refreshing, sour, complex, clean and fruity. The taste has lemon and lime in the flavour and is delicious and not at all vinegary. Long fruity aftertaste. A really great, well-made beer made using the spontaneus fermentaion method.
