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.

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.

Wow it smells terrible. Colour is Orange. Taste is really sour almost lemon with some lambic fruity tastes. Definitely interesting but the sour is too much defined in the taste.

375ml green corked and caged bottle, poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is cloudy amber with a medium sized airy white head, that dissipated quickly leaving no lacing. Aroma of green apples, table grapes, orange peels and barnyard. Flavours of green apples, table grapes, lemon zest, oak wood notes and a hint of cherries. Taste is light sweet, light bitter and heavy sour. Palate is medium bodied, soft texture and lively carbonation. Boon Oude Geuze is refreshingly sour and dry, a great lambic beer.

250ml bottle labelled 2011/12 at NBeer Pub, Beijing. Pours hazy orange with a white head. Aroma of lemon and sourness. Sour dry finish. Forgot how much I love this stuff!

vyvvy (4390) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 7, 2015
From 95-96 from neck label - Thanks so much to hannont for bringing this to the Portland bottle share - Pours brownish with an off-white head. The aroma has sour figs, toasted malt, ripe peaches and light sourness. It has a medium smooth body with lots of soft carbonation. The flavor starts with caramel, sourness, saltiness and is rich for an oude geuze. The finis has lots of lush caramel and a weird sourness that really works here. Nice and different.

Very interesting taste, sour with wheaty and woody taste. Finish is with a long bitter lingering down the the throat. Refreshing. Great stuff. My bottel best before 13.08.2034, batch L42251. 2012 2013 season.

Drugi lambic od Boona. Tym razem trafiłem na gueuze. Złocisty kolor i piękna biała piana. Zapach kwaśny, owocowy - coś jakby morele... Smak powalił mnie niemal na kolana. To dopiero prawdziwy kwasior! Bardzo przyjemny w piciu, orzeźwiający. Perfekcyjnie zakamuflowany alkohol. Zupełnie niewyczuwalny... Do tego średnie wysycenie i mamy doskonały trunek na upały. Zadziwiająco szybko zniknął ze szkła!

Bien acidulé sans être trop intense. Goût de pommes vertes et de grains maltés. Bien équilibrée et saveurs bien dosées. Geuze typique qui plaira à bien des palais

Batavi (32) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2015 Uitgeschonken in Cantillon degusteer glas. Donkergele mistige kleur met mooie bruisende haast champagne schuimlaag die dan wel blijft. De geur is fruitig en zacht. De smaak is zurig en droog maar toch erg aangenaam. Met smaken van druiven/witte wijn, vanille en eikenhout. Het mondgevoel is een beetje als brut champagne, droog met hoog koolzuur gehalte. De afdronk is droog en zacht bitter. De zurige smaak went snel, het bier wordt met elke slok lekkerder. De Oude Geuze Boon is een prettige kennismaking met deze bierstijl.

250ml bottle from Beers of Europe (£1.79):
This one was a really excellent gueuze style lambic, it had tonnes of flavour and sourness but held a good balance and proved an easy one to drink. I’m kicking myself for only buying a 250ml bottle when larger ones were available but I guess that just means I’ll need to pick this one up again at some point.
