Leighton (9855) - London, Greater London, - MAY 17, 2013
Bottle at Bruce’s, London. Huge thanks to Bruce for this new Boon. Pours hazy gold with a light, creamy white head. Nose holds lots of grass and some funky citrus. Tastes great, good sour tang, moderate grassy bitterness, some citrus and tropical fruits, mellow funk. Light bodied with fine to average, massaging carbonation. Grassy bitter finish, nice sour bite, some fruits, lemon and other citrus, touches of pineapple. Great balance, very drinkable.

gnoff (7466) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2014
37.5 cl bottle from Bierkompass, a while back. BB 31-08-2030.
Hazy golden color, fizzy white head that diminishes to a small white one after a bit. Scent is a mix of sweet and acidic; tart, glue, solvents, fresh, berries, candy, alcohol. Tart, berries, acidic, light sweet, red currants while still green, lemon taste. Light grapefruit bitter aftertaste, also sweet, lemon pith, dry. Medium to the fizzy side mouthfeel with a rather dry finish to it, low bitterness but mouthpuckering dry.

BiereLuc (765) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2014
Bière dorée et voilée avec un mince col de mousse. Le nez profite de la présence de fruits jaunes en plus d’une présomption aigre-douce. En bouche, l’acidité domine sans saisir. L’équilibre est somptueux. Des notes acétiques rappellent de bonne bière des Flandres. Beaucoup de plaisir dans une seule bouteille.

Vignale (1808) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2014
Flaska från Etre Gourmete. Gyllenfärgad, mouserande. Stor och fantastisk fin doft. Syrlig citrus och äpplen och trä och i bakgrunden stall och hästfilt. Stor kropp, Boons spritsiga syra som jag verkligen gillar. Torr och stram. Fin smakbild. Inte den mest funkiuga, men väldigt välavvägd och med så fin syra. Jag gillar Boon.

harrymel (1448) - Spokane, Washington, USA - APR 14, 2014
Bottled 31AUG10 All from Vat 44, brewed 2008 Pours a mildly hazy gold with a fluffy off white foam. Nose is huge - peach, lemons, pineapple, apple skins - very fruity nose. Flavor is delicate with some bicarbonate, some peaches, some grass, standard wheat, some seven-up flavors. There is a bit of alka-seltzer in there also. Not much tart or funk for the style. Medium bodied with high carb - appropriate for the style with a dry finish. Overall an interesting beer, but nothing really special. The nose is exceptional, but the flavor is lackluster.

brokensail (9944) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 4, 2014
Bottle @ home. Thanks to Edmund Edmonds! Hazy orange pour with a big white head. Aromas of green grape, apple, and lemon juice. Some grass, nice funk of socks and sweat. Lots of hay. Flavor is pleasantly tart, green apple, and lemon. Plenty of earthy, barnyard funk. Slight sweat, grape juice, and plenty of straw. Yum a dum dum.

Spannmål och härlig balans på syran. Drar den direkt ur flaskan i väntan på tåget.

AdamJackson (2105) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 27, 2014
2 finger fluffy head. Never fades straw yellow and hints of gold. This is the most aroma grassy, lemon and citrus forward beer. Notes of peach as well. Taste is Veery light. Lots f wheat and light aromatic and very sort of relaxing tastes. Very bright with grape skins, lemons , wheat, like and peach. Quite nice but lacks a ton of funk.

brnandersen (1668) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2014
Sample from 375 ml. bottle. Hazy, golden colour with a bubbly, white head. Tart, fruity aroma with apples, bretts, barnyard, oak, lemon, a very good fruitiness in this one. Taste is light sour. Medium body with a slick texture. Finishes drying and tart with an excellent tart fruitiness and pepper notes. Excellent - I enjoyed this a lot.
