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.

Bottle my local major Supermarket decided to clear out at 25% off....bonus. I guess there aren’t enough sour beer drinkers in this part of town. Date on label 06.08.2027. Lovely golden color, acidic aroma. Effervescent and tart, leading into sour. Very tasty and one of the easier drinking geuzes I’ve tried. The tartness dulls a bit as my mouth gets used to it, but retains enough pucker to keep it enjoyable. Wishing I would have picked up quite a few more at clear-out prices. Serving type: bottle

Bottle from Maltitude in Columbus, GA. Pours a cloudy golden yellow. Little head. Aroma is sour, lactic acid, yeast with hints of green apple and slight citrus. Taste is tart, but not overly sour. Hints of yeast, bread, lactic acid and green apples. Palate is highly carbonated, thin body. First beer I’ve tried in this style, but this is enjoyable. I’ll definitely be trying some more.

Bottle from mane liquor. 2010 edition. Pours a golden vibrant orange with a fluffy white head. Nose is lemon peel, oranges and citrus. Slight acidity in there. Aging hides that sourness. Taste is more citrus and lemon peel. Very tasty. Even some slight farmhouse notes in there too. Enjoyed this one! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle (750ml): Cloudy, light amber honey, thick head and nice lace. Clean, sour, citrus, lactic. Dry, sour not bitter. Long, acid, fresh, clean, quenching and morish. Not extreme for a geuze. Mid weight, elegant and long. Wonderfully refreshing. A little simple but wonderful balance.
