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.

brokensail (14530) - San Leandro, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
A lightly hazed golden orange color with a white head. Some slight sulfur up front followed by a nice funk note and some lactic tartness. A light grass note, some subtle fruits, and a bit of oak. There is a really good apple and lemon flavor to this. Some earthy funk, must, and grass. A dry finish, though there is a slight sweetness up front. Only a moderate tartness and acidity.

alteregoo (558) - POLAND - FEB 6, 2016
Po przelaniu tworzy się sycząca piana, która szybko opada do firanki. Barwa złota, opalizująca, na dnie butelki drobinki drożdżowe. Aromat kwaskowy, cytrynowy, delikatne estry w typie białego winogrona i sporo brettów - siano, końska derka, stara skóra. Genialny! W smaku podobnie, kwaśność umiarkowana w typie soku z limonki i wody z kapusty kiszonej, pałętają się tu niedojrzałe jasne winogrona, żółte śliwki, stajnia i trawa cytrynowa. Goryczka prawie niezauważalna. Wysycenie wysokie, szampańskie, alkohol praktycznie niewyczuwalny, lekka cierpkość na języku, mineralna słoność w aterteasie.
Można by rzec standardowy, solidny Gueuze, bez fajerwerków i bez wad. Klasyka. Chyba najbliżej mu do Lindemans - Oude Gueuze Cuvee Rene.

Gueuze en attaque, purin sur la fin! Désolé mais je n’ai pas aimé... trop complexe pour mon pauvre jugement ou refermentation en bouteille mal gérée par Dame Nature?

Rask0lnikov (158) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 21, 2016
Pale, hazy yellow colour. Thin head. Hay, vinegar, wood in the aroma. Grass, and wood at first. Vinegar and sourness in the middle. Sour grapes in aftertaste. Very well balanced, not so sour, medium bodied, medium carbonated descent geuze. Maybe not so complex, but still an enjoyment.
