2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Holy crap, this blows my mind. From the rusty cap onward this has a most amazing outlandish smell--salty, sour, yeasty, and a disturbing touch of diarrhea. Pours a lovely golden color with a huge but quickly diminishing head.
I really canít wrap my mind around the complicated flavor of this thing. It is so sour that it makes my eyes water and nearly makes me wretch. But thereís something there that I want to get to the bottom of--a maltiness hiding in there, and a spicy flavor reminiscent of pot. A totally new experience for me.

I didnít like this gueuze all that much. Lindemanís was much more palatable.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2004 My eyes shoot out of my head when I saw the incredible score for this beer. Highly overrated. When I drunk this one, my thought was that the other Lambica I've had were not that bad. Aroma is perhaps the most striking and confusing of this one. Not knowing what to think about it, I gave the aroma the benefit of the doubt. Taste is horrible sour.
Rerate 22-08-'04. Well times change. So does taste. The new bio version. Very oaky aroma, winey and fruity (apple and citrus). Hazy, orange-yellow coloured with a firm white lasting head. Taste is tart, moderate sweet, oaky. Very well balanced. Tartness evolves towards finish. Quite dry brew. (Offcourse....)

Orange golden color, with a very quick disappearing head. Oaky aroma, sour gueuze. Sour taste, as the girardin. IMO the Boon Gueuze was better than those oak-conditioned gueuzes as Girardin and Cantillon.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Blond, clear if you pour carefully. Big head quickly dissappearing. Aroma: Rubber wheels and mould in the normal sour geuze aroma. Complex aroma. Very sour.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Faint hazy gold with huge rapidly dissipating head. Super sour, wet rubber, faint fruit and mouldy old cellar yeast aroma. Medium sour start. Softer middle and milder bitter finish. I canít see whatís so good about this one and canít find the complexities that others seem to find. I think the De Cam I had last night had more character about it than this one. Also the bottle smells of human excrement.

Not that Iím fond of Gueuzes but I always think you must know where you want to talk about. So I had to change a little bit of my opinion and i can appreciate this style more and more.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2005 1999 edition: a 2002 experience...gueuzantic off-white head...it shrank before my eyes to mere normality...brilliant cloudy orange loveliness..aroma hinted at spiciness with lotz of tart sourness...Extreme perfection in the language of sour!!! I kid you not..I am fricken dumbfoundingly retarded...this is lambicness at its best!! the sourness meets you with subtle love and wraps itself around your brain and seduces you till you explode...If youíve never had a lambic, donít make this your first, because the rest will be downhill!!
