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.

olie (22) - Greater London, - OCT 13, 2012
Smells of lambic sourness and freshly mown grass. Flavour tart, but not a very complex funkiness, with apple, lemon. A nice geuzue, but without the complexity of a Cantillon or 3 Fontienen.

thellgren (478) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2015
0.375 l bottle with cork from Alko. Dark yellow/light amber colour with nice head, if not too cold. This is dry, as you would expect from oude geuze, but it has also that tannin or old oak wood taste. This won’t make your throat feel strange, it is much easier, but not sweet.

Marstonlad (596) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 4, 2015
Bottle from Alko, Espoo. Pours cloudy bronze with a little head. The aroma features citrus, sour apple and spices, fairly sour and yeasty all in all. Taste is extremely crisp, fresh and sour - as this style should be. Apple is on the forefront in the tart, fruity and a bit earthy mix. Medium hoppiness. The palate is medium bodied, slick with a quite lively carbonation. A bit aggressive but very refreshing.
