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.

Bottle at home. Easily the most carbonated beer I’ve ever seen -- the cork popped off with a loud bang as soon as I unscrewed the wire cage, and it hit the ceiling hard enough that it left a dent!
This tastes like an archetypal geuze. It’s light, fizzy, and funky, with a good amount of farmyard taste from the Brett and a moderate amount of sourness. It doesn’t stand out particularly in any one way, but it’s a great "classic" geuze.

SPDickerman (1191) - Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Smells tart and acidic. Taste is tart, subtle wood, acidic, and lightly fruity. Light-bodied with a smooth texture and sharp mouth-carbonation, Boon Oude Geuze finishes with a lingering acidic bite.

Hazy straw coloured with a massive white head. Taste is mainly acidic, sour... cider apple... nice, smooth mouthfeel, crisp and very refreshing. Very nice.
