Bottle of 37.5cl, in a Trappist glass; from the fridge.
Great golden cider colour, with a very white head. An aroma of oud geuze, with the wonderful taste of it (for newbies : it’s like cider in a more sour way).

Tasted at home and a week later in a pub. Aroma mostly of yeast. Nicely sour. Smooth. And quite cheap. Definitely go-to lambic.

My second geuze ever. First one was a young one and this one is definitely way smoother. I still have to get used to the sourness though. It’s nothing I’m used to. It’s nice though.

375 mL bottle (2012-2013) at home. Hazy apricot colouring with a crisp white head that vanishes quickly. Pleasant aroma of apples and hints of yeast. Light taste of sour apples and acidity, with some oak. Very refreshing.

375 ml. bottle from 2011-2012 season, poured in to a Flute. Hazy, golden colour with an amber tint. Big, fluffy white head that fades to a fat cap. Tart aroma with lemons, apples, light barnyard and leather. Taste is sour. Medium body with a slick texture and a fine, lively carbonation. Finishes dry and tart with lemon and barnyard aromas. Nice, easy drinking Geuze without to much complexity. Refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
38cl. bottle (375ml.). The Oude Geuze Boon is my defintion of a "gueuze" beer. Orange or golden, light brown or even peachy color, with a small head. The foam fades away, making place for a beautiful scent of oranges, lemon. A perfect dry and sour taste. An easy drinker.
