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.

Looks great, clear golden body with good white head. Has interesting aroma that really reminds me of smiths bacon fries, also comes threw in the flavour. Some sulphur and onsen (Japanese hot springs) notes also very present, but not off putting. The taste is wel rounded, not too dry, perhaps a little thin in the finish. Overall, very interesting, quite unique and well worth a visit, but I don’t think I would make it my go to geuze.

Bottle. 2010 / 2011. Hazy Amber, with a thin, white head. Bready. Strawberry purée. Lime pith. Drinks light dry. Has a fruity sweetness. Very light tartness. Tart, but soft and airy palate. Cleansing, and crisp. Finishes slightly acetic, crisp, and dry. Ends with a soft sweetness on the lips.

Really nice Geuze. Great sour aroma and good balance of sour and sweet. Definitely a beer I’d buy again.

Golden orange colour with white head. Aroma of oranges, lemon, oak, citrous. Taste of champagne notes, with well balanced carbonation, firstly with sweet notes, which are quickly transformed to sour. Dry sour finish. Good, but unfortunately this is not my favourite style.

yourilevesque (187) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 11, 2015
Très belle robe orangée criblée de milliers de copeaux de levures en suspension. Douce pomme verte fermentée en baril de vieux bois moisi me chatouillant les narines. Au moment où le bouchon ait à jamais marqué mon plafond de cuisine après avoir sauté, je savais que l’effervescence serait magistrale. Cette bière rappelle le mousseux. Non pas un Crément, mais un mousseux honnête et sans prétention dont on retient l’effervescence sur-abondante, un goût léger, minéral, vieux... On passe du bois aux champignons, au fromage, à la pomme encore. Délicat, frais, spontané!

Fantastic lambic beer! The nose you can pick up the sour notes from the yeast strains are nice, hint of tart apples. A lot of carbonation on first taste with more tartness with a dry crisp finish. Very nice!

375ml bottle from Smithfield, Hanley. Expected great things, pleasant sour but nothing exceptional and at £7.40 for a bottle you can keep it....
