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.

Cidery tart aroma. Huge head with a sparkling orange appearance. Sour tart mellowed grapefruit apple flavor that is far more toned down than Cantillion products. Dry sour finish.

Padron4KM (552) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - NOV 23, 2014
375 ml corked and caged, 2011-2012 brewing season.
Hazy,dirty, golden color. Lively carbonation creates a thick, bubbly but rapidly dissipating off white head, and very little lace.
Aroma is sour fruit, wood, lemons, funky cheese.
Flavor is sweet, acidic, lemony, wood. Finish is dry.

ForlornHope (84) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2014
37.5 cl bottle at home, 2010-2011 brew season, so quite young. Fine orange-gold colour with a lively effervescence and a tight white head. Aroma of sour lemon and a hint of vegetable hop, earthy and pungent. Taste is initially sharp and sour with a sweet aftertaste. Lively on the tongue with a long dry finish. Overall a fine beer and one with a developing character as the glass empties. Superb with a strong cheese, I enjoyed this with some Dorset Blue Vinney.

jphartley (24) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 13, 2014
2011/2012 bottling from Mitra (Beukenweg, Amsterdam) Heady, sweet aroma without too much oak. Not to sour, not to sweet. Well balanced but lacking in any complexity. The Marriage Parfait is significantly better, but this is not bad for the price (about 2.65 Euro a bottle at Mitra).

Hazy liquid with large, airy head. Very fruity aroma. Light body, little carbonation. Rich, fruity taste. Taste is quite sour and a bit sweet. Not my kind of beer, but definitely not bad either.

461er (15) - Heilbronn, GERMANY - NOV 1, 2014
0,75 l Flasche vom Edeka (Braufactum) sehr spritzig und sehr sauer, erinnert an Apfel / Cider und Zitrone, keinerlei Süße. Sehr lecker. Trockener, leicht holziger Abgang. Die 7% Alkohol verstecken sich gut.

jcartamdg (2050) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2014
Pours a light translucent gold with no head. Aroma of citrus, peaches, oak and slight vinegar. Taste is tart with fruit and funk equally present. Nice balance yet really complex.

scanovajr (642) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - OCT 28, 2014
Bottled. A hazy orange beer with a bubbly white head. Aroma is sour and acidic, with lemon notes. Taste has some malty sweetness and a lot of acidic and citrusy notes. Dry woodness in the end. Low bitterness.
