Hazy golden color with white fluffy head. Aroma has a good amount of lambic funk, the more clean type with hay, barnyard and earthy notes. Taste starts quite sour and also the bitterness is pretty strong for a gueuze. Alcohol is also a bit too present for the style. Body is medium and the carbonation is on the high side. My favorite thing about this beer is the aroma but overall its a pretty solid and complex gueuze.

Kleine fles in de trein onderweg naar borefts. Goudgeel wet een witte kraag. Mooi zuur aroma en smaak niet te heftig, met wat overrijpe mandarijnen. Niet verkeerd

Bottle at Cafe Rose Red, Bruges
perhaps a bit mustier on the nose than regular Boon, its sharper, less complex, dry, gentle brettiness, moderate body and carbonation

Bottle shared by Bartlebier - Thx! Pours cloudy amber with a white head. Aroma of funk, basement, oak, cheese, goose berries and vinegar. The taste is funky with notes of grapefruit, vinegar, dry cheese, green grapes and stable. Nice gueuze.

750mL bottled December 4th, 2002 drunk 8/18/15.
If memory serves correctly, Jacob Lovenlund sent me this one a long time ago, back when I had a bad case of the "must age everythings"....well, thankfully 13 years isnt too much for a gueuze to handle and this one stood up to the challenge. Still a good pop when I undid the cage, and the cork, which was still in the neck, but not actually wedged in just slid right out. The cage was the only thing holding the carbonation in...
Still poured a lovely deep copper, with a good white head and moderate retention.
Light sulfur in the nose is mild compared to Cantillon standards, with much, much more lime-like brett acidity, green apples and lots of horseblanket and earthiness. Really quite nice! Little, if any oxidation present, no alcohol and no flaws.
In the mouth its tightly carbonated, appropriately dry and full of delicious lactic and brett acids, giving a healthy but not aggressive sourness. Quite fruity, with a touch of caramel/sherry-like oxidation. Obviously has dulled a bit with time, but still comes off very noble and deliciously quenching. Light acetic notes creep in as it warms and breathes. Really impressed! Not sure if this version was brewed by F. Boon or not....better consult Joris. Maybe not quite a 4.0 beer, but you gotta give it some credit for still tasting this good after 13 years....

Na, das ist doch mal wieder ein netter Lambik. Frisch und fruchtig mit einer feinen Balance aus Sure und Se. Etwas herb zum Schluss, etwas Getreide, etwas Essig und die Nase offenbart milde Hefen. Top.

JStax (3975) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2015
375 ml bottle brought back from belgium. The beer is a hazy copper color with a white head of foam. The aroma has leather, dry, musty fruit, and strong acidity. The taste has more of the same, with a strong sourness and a more mild sweetness coming through. The carbonation level is pretty high ln this one. As soon as I srarted to move the cork, it shot out with a lot of force. No gushing, though. Delicious beer!
