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.

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 (162) - 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!

niquillis (1436) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2015
375ml bottle from Smithfield, Hanley. Expected great things, pleasant sour but nothing exceptional and at £7.40 for a bottle you can keep it....

McWorta (825) - LUXEMBOURG - APR 3, 2015
Golden colour, CO2 propelled with a fine pored medium sized white head. On the nose aromas of apple, farmhouse, barnyard, wheat and wood with hints of grapemust develop. Lively for a brief moment developping a smooth slickness and a medium body. A notch of sweetness makes way for a well noticeable yet moderate sourness. Well balanced hiding its alcohol content well with a coherently fading finish. Nice!

Andy_ (867) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 3, 2015
375 ml bottle
Orange slightly hazy beer with little but persistent white head. Totally murky with sediment. Aroma has crisp sour citrus, horse saddle and vinegar. Flavor is sour with citrus juice and vinegar. Palate is medium full with heavy carbonation. Finish has quite heavy bitterness and quite intense sourness. Aftertaste has citrus, apple. slight pale maltiness and vinegar. Adding sediment adds some fruity sweetness all around. A nice gueuze, with good balance between sourness and fruityness.

fkoolen (469) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2015
37,5cl bottle at home, 27/02/2034. Slightly cloudy, light golden colour, nicely lacing white head. White wine tones, citrus fruits, green apples, ginger, light earthy character: mainly tard fruity. Lingering fruity and dry finish, nutmeg coming up late. Relatively high carbonation, medium body, dry mouthfeel.

An basic lambic actually. I just got into this kind of beer so i dont have the wide specter of preferences, but the beer gives me exactly what it promises me. Good aroma, good taste, nice and smooth lambic.
