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.

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

Brewing season 2010-2011. Aroma: Funky, tart, yeast. Taste: Nice funky sourness, yeast is present in a good way. Overall a really good geuze, but a little to over carbonated for me.

ksiwzos (20) - GREECE - DEC 10, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2014 250ml bottle from Belgian eshop, Vintage 2009-2010 Slightly hazy orange color, very very little carbonation, just barely get a 1-2mm head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is a bit subdued because of the lack of carbonation, I can sense fruity and funky aromas, some caramel too with some maltiness. Taste is sweetish, with some herbal qualities, the sourness and funkiness are very subtle... Some tartness in the finish but sweetness is too much for the style(and the age) of this brew. Some herbal hoppy notes in the finish too. Medium boded and very drinkable but not what I expected. This one I would give it a total score of 3.7 but I’ll leave it as is for the 2010-2011 vintage... 250ml bottle from Belgian eshop, Vintage 2010-2011 Slightly hazy with some yeast floaties and big white head. OMG the head retention is too good to be true! Aroma is much more funky and the brett smells amazing. Very barnyard-y aroma, notes of lemon and not much sourness. Taste starts with nice acidity complemented by a touch of earthy bitterness and some amazing sweet fruitiness. Some wood too. Long dry finish, not too tart. High carbonation, medium bodied. I guess as I got back in time with the Geuze of Brouwerij F. Boon it get’s even better...

gramity (1440) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
azy golden colour, white head, sediment in the bottle. Smells of citrus and wood. Tart apples as well. I also notice very subtle vanilla notes and some basement aromas. Medium bitter and - of course - quite sour, but not too much.

12/10/2014. 375 ml. bottle. 2012/2013 edition. Light abler with a thick white head. Funky yeast aromas, bread, wet hay, spices. Light tartness, medium carbonation and a long try finish. Mellow yet complex.

Alusmamuts (493) - LATVIA - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle 37,5 cl of 2011/2012 brewing season. Amber, bit cloudy with rich white, but fastly dissappearing head. Rich frity aroma. Sour bit fruity taste, followed by some sweetness. Mild bitterness, in turn, comes later and softly stays as aftertaste, followed by mild sourness, lasting longer.

2011-12 brew: Pretty tart but balances nicely with some oak vanilla and ripe fruit (berries, peach, ?) but with a lingering sour. Has some malty breadiness/toastiness as well. Super delicious.
