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.

37.5 cL bottle, 2003-2004 vintage. Pours hazy orange with a creamy/bobbly off-white head. Aroma is dried woody, acidic and with a light citrus to orange note. Flavour is dry and acidic. Solid woody tone into the finish. Medium sour to light sweet note. Easy accesible gueuze.

Ungstrup (29207) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2003
The aroma is nicely sour with notes of sweetness, fruits, and lemon. The color is a hazy orange and it has a fine though disappearing head. The flavor is rather sweet for a Geueze, but it still has the bite it should have. The bite in this one is from the sourness with lemon notes. It ends on a woody dryness. A great Geueze - maybe because it is a little sweeter than the most sour and metallic Geuezes, but still not too sweet; like a Faro or some of the commercial Geuezes.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2007 (Bottle 37,5 cl) Comes as "Geuze Boon" at 6% ABV. Beautiful, fully golden beer albeit very hazy. Marvellous almost exotic nose - sherry perhaps - but also very acidic notes. The acidity continuous in the flavours, but this is far from the extreme sourness found in other traditional gueuzes. Wonderfully aromatic with some metallic notes. Well-conditioned - good one. 060200 and 110700

Early amateur rating warning! Not quite as sharp as some other Geuzes I’ve had so not bad at all - pretty drinkable.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 16, 2003
Recolte 1996/1997, 6 years old; 7% ABV
Golden color; giant frothy head; persistent perlage. Deep aroma of wood, cellar, citrus fruits... Quite smooth, good body structure; astringent, tarty, light malt, light fruits; a residual sweetness (veeery light). Palate astringent and quite aromatic. Good but not enough aggressive.
