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.

750 ml. corked and caged bottle. Years 2012, 2013. Best before 2033. Shared with Gabe. Pours a thick mousse, well retained ivory head, over a hazy gold (SRM 5) body.....nose is lightly sour, with barnyard, horse blanket notes, apple, pear, grapefruit. no hops......taste is slightly sour with moderate honey, pear, apple, grapefruit, moderate barnyard, all accompanied by moderate tart sourness, mild malts, no hops......mouth feel, light of medium body, no alcohol, slight astringency, high carbonation. This meets the style quite well, with complex aromas and flavors which meet the individual characteristics wonderfully. The only flaw is the cloudiness in appearance. BJCP 9/3/16/4/8

Marduk (4786) - Reval, ESTONIA - FEB 11, 2016
375ml bottle. Hazy dark amber color. Medium size, white bubbly head, stays. Burnt plastic, wet grassy hops, sourish, acidic, rubber in aroma. Rubber, acidic, wet hops, grainy, rhubarb in taste. Rhubarb in burps. Wet hops turn more grassy in aftertaste. Crisp acidic mouthfeel. Tad too much carbonation for me, but keeps palate refreshing. Wouldn’t say it’s 7% so props for that. Drinkable brew.

alteregoo (566) - POLAND - FEB 6, 2016
Po przelaniu tworzy się sycząca piana, która szybko opada do firanki. Barwa złota, opalizująca, na dnie butelki drobinki drożdżowe. Aromat kwaskowy, cytrynowy, delikatne estry w typie białego winogrona i sporo brettów - siano, końska derka, stara skóra. Genialny! W smaku podobnie, kwaśność umiarkowana w typie soku z limonki i wody z kapusty kiszonej, pałętają się tu niedojrzałe jasne winogrona, żółte śliwki, stajnia i trawa cytrynowa. Goryczka prawie niezauważalna. Wysycenie wysokie, szampańskie, alkohol praktycznie niewyczuwalny, lekka cierpkość na języku, mineralna słoność w aterteasie.
Można by rzec standardowy, solidny Gueuze, bez fajerwerków i bez wad. Klasyka. Chyba najbliżej mu do Lindemans - Oude Gueuze Cuvee Rene.

Gueuze en attaque, purin sur la fin! Désolé mais je n’ai pas aimé... trop complexe pour mon pauvre jugement ou refermentation en bouteille mal gérée par Dame Nature?

Pale, hazy yellow colour. Thin head. Hay, vinegar, wood in the aroma. Grass, and wood at first. Vinegar and sourness in the middle. Sour grapes in aftertaste. Very well balanced, not so sour, medium bodied, medium carbonated descent geuze. Maybe not so complex, but still an enjoyment.
