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.

craftbeerbob (1) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2018 does not count
Golden with resetting head. Aroma light balanced funk, crisp apples and warm oak notes. Taste Mild balanced funk, sour, granny smith apples (specifically), notes of oak but also (oddly) reminiscent of a good Chablis.

Bill Becker (2050) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JAN 27, 2018
Batch 73301, best before February 13th, 2037. 375ml bottle. Pours a hazy straw gold, small head of foam, spotty lacing Apple vinegar aromas with some funk. Definitely tart but not without some sweet notes. The taste is tart, funky, woody, slightly sweet but overall, very dry. I want to say there's a peppery presence but I am not sure on that. Light bodied, plenty of carbonation. Excellent Gueuze.

GreenCat (233) - SLOVENIA - JAN 27, 2018
0,25l bottle, 2013/2014. Pours hazy golden orange with medium off white dissipating head. Plenty of stuff floating around. Aroma is fruity, lemon and grapefruit, yeast, malt, medium barnyard funk, sweet and sour. Taste is light to medium sweet, moderately bitter and sour. Body is medium, texture slick and carbonation more or less average. I expected much more lively carbonation. Finish is quite long, sourness lingers on tongue, moderately bitter.

Bottle from awesome shop in Belgium. Nothing as velvety and honey like as your cantillon and fonteinen but still a very enjoyable geuze.
