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.

Beautiful straw colour with a nice thick head which sticks around and leaves some good lacing. Smells like someone threw some lemons in an old musty barnyard. It’s quite pungent. Lemon and pepper are dominant in the taste. Quite dry and left me puckering after my first sip. Seems to be quite a solid Gueuze from my limited experience with the style. I enjoyed it at any rate.

An basic lambic actually. I just got into this kind of beer so i dont have the wide specter of preferences, but the beer gives me exactly what it promises me. Good aroma, good taste, nice and smooth lambic.

Bottle thanks to Nathan. Pours a cloudy orange with medium creamy off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong funk and apple skin. Thin mouth, nice funk, tart apple, oak, very good.

Bottle of 37.5cl, in a Trappist glass; from the fridge. Great golden cider colour, with a very white head. An aroma of oud geuze, with the wonderful taste of it (for newbies : it’s like cider in a more sour way). Great

Tasted at home and a week later in a pub. Aroma mostly of yeast. Nicely sour. Smooth. And quite cheap. Definitely go-to lambic.

My second geuze ever. First one was a young one and this one is definitely way smoother. I still have to get used to the sourness though. It’s nothing I’m used to. It’s nice though.

Lambic style without fruit. Very smooth mouth feel, very dry but pleasantly sour. Nice gentile flavor.

Oude geuze boon l’ancienne 2011 2012. Dark Green Bottle, Tollcross, Edinburgh CIty. Pours medium amber with a thin, white head. Scent is fantastic with yeast and grape notes. Taste is a fair mix of sour and yeast - complex and excellent. A great beer.

Aroma is fruit, malts and a small hint of vanilla. The flavor is lemons, fruit, tropical fruit, malts and a mix of tart and medium sweetness in the finish.

375 mL bottle (2012-2013) at home. Hazy apricot colouring with a crisp white head that vanishes quickly. Pleasant aroma of apples and hints of yeast. Light taste of sour apples and acidity, with some oak. Very refreshing.
