3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375ml Bottle. The pour was a sparkling clear pale yellow with a huge (3-4 finger) white pillowy head, that receded slowly and lasted throughout with excellent sticky foamy lacing.
The aroma was of light grain and straw malts and a funky Belgian yeast with notes of citrus (lemon), a dusty wood odor, white grapes, apple, apricot and a slight tartness.
The taste was a tad sweet with a good strong grainy yeast presence and a touch of apricot and apple throughout, finishing boldly sour with a hint of white grapes and a light wine presence right at the end. The flavor was short in duration, with the tart fruity taste fading away off the taste buds almost immediately after the swallow.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a thin dry texture and a very lively carbonation.
Overall I perceived this to be a very good tasting Geuze, with a strong fruity presence which only accented the moderate winey sourness, giving this brew a very enjoyable and easy drinkability... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

Boon Oude Geuze 2011-2012
Pours a slightly hazed orange-amber color with a small, white head, immediately collapsing to a small film at the rim of the glass.
Smells of ripe red apple, together with a nice, cheesy funkiness. Lemon zest and old wood bark among sweeter toffee malts create a pleasant depth on the nose.
Has a very mineralic, lively carbonation, supported by tart lemon zest, creating a pleasant interplay with a sweeter malts defined finish.
Tastes of a slightly harsh, carbonation supported, stony minerality among sour lemon pulp and a oaken hint on the back end. Offers dusty toffee malts after the swallow, together with the beer’s profound mineral quality. Finishes with a decent lemon tartness among funky cream cheese, wood bark and fermented, fruit coated toffee.
Drinks very easy, refreshing with a nice depth of flavors to it, while its mineralic presence is a tad over the top, preventing more subtle flavors from becoming recognizable, especially during the beginning.
