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. 2003-2004 vintage. Slightly hazy golden color with a big sparkling head. The aroma is mildly funky with lots of grass, lemon and grapefruit to it. A mild acidic note as well. The flavor is medium sweet and tart with some funky brett, grass and plenty of citric notes - tart lemon, sweet lemon and slightly bitter grapefruit. Hints of wood and mud. The finish has a mineral note to it as well as some malts and grass. Moderate body, lacks dryness. The mouthfeel is quite a downer. This is a decent gueuze. Easy to drink yet decently characterful.

tightslice (601) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 27, 2015
Bottle from Beltramo’s in Menlo Park, CA. Aroma is wheat, breads (surprisingly not too funky). Taste is mild funky bits, rubber, tart. A mild sour that lives closer to a traditional "beer".

Bottle. Smell worried me as a little bit clean and wheaty and it presents a bit clear and pale. Prefer my gueuze to look and smell a bit funkier. No problem though - lovely champagne character with an astringent tart sourness and a sweet apple balance. This isn’t a funky farm-yard mindmelter but more like a sophisticated and refined smash on the side of a cruise ship job. Only quibble is that the fizz could be less harsh and more moussey to match the style.

Couleur jaune opaque avec une mousse resistante. Une gueuze dans les normes, cereales, fruits jaune, une bonne aciditer. C’est bien fait!

Don’t know, somehow dull and unremarkable? Neither really sour nor sweet. Refreshing but dull. Maybe it’s just me?

pitch992 (32) - SLOVENIA - NOV 14, 2015
hay, barnyard, cheese, leather, alcohol, aciditiy citruses- oranges and lemon. when you get used the barnyard aromas it is quite nice. pale, golden, slightly hazy, minimal head, white foam, good retention. lightly sour, umami, light sweetness. light body, thin feel, lively, long finish, very tart. the palate does not follow the aroma very nicely- too tart, puckering. overall, nice but needs some work. enjoyed the citrus and acidic aromas the most
