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.

Kauge (657) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 28, 2015
Hazy amber. White head with great retention and little lacing. Acidic, fruity, bone dry. And then lots of oohs and aahs in my notes... I need more of this stuff. Will then try and remember to take a) more, b) less obvious, and c) less emotional notes.

Werckmeister (801) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JUN 28, 2015
250ml bottle at home. 2011/2012. BB 05/2034. orange hazy color, small white head. smells very fruity, cherries, grapes, light wood, only slight barnyard, some grass, tobacco. medium body, nice soft carbonation, lightly bubbly mouthfeel. tastes of sour apples, peach, citric, sour cherries, well integrated sourness, light wood notes, herbs, some light sweetness(?). finishes with green apples and sour notes. I am usually not so much into sour beers, but this one has a nice balance somehow.

Beautiful, classic beer. Especially on a warm day this is so good. Not too sour, quite perfect. Bottle from De Zwart in Wilnis.

Bottle @ Stadin Panimobaari. Clear orange with diminutive white head. Sour apple with honey and a touch of ripeness. Sweetness carries on in an appropriate proportion. Very chapagne-like taste and palate.

Pours hazy light orange with big frothy off-white head. Aroma is medium malty with straw, citrus hops with doughy yeast. Very refreshing fruity taste with dry finish. Not overly sour - easy to drink. Texture is watery, light to medium body.

Unde (550) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 22, 2015
Orange colour with minimal head on top. Aroma has sourness and zesty green apples. Taste has fresh sourness, and lots of bitterness. A bit of wooden notes and flowery lightness also. Medium body with high carbonation.

electrotype (356) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 20, 2015
En fût. Plutôt flatte, cette bière possède énormément de notes la rapprochant du vin. La complexité est là, mais n’est pas spectaculaire. Son manque de vie m’agace un peu.
