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.

Kapsel (75) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 6, 2016
Barwa pomarańczowo - bursztynowa, brak piany. W aromacie kwaśno, trochę stajni, trochę owocw. W smaku dość cierpkie, ale za to bardzo orzeźwiające.

Bozo_skeleton (1052) - Grenoble, FRANCE - DEC 6, 2016
Vraiment tres proche de la Mariage parfait sur tous les aspects. du moins sur une comparaison bas sur le souvenir de la MP. A redeguster en parallele dune MP pour voir et apprecier la difference.

ozzatoadisback (105) - ITALY - DEC 5, 2016
Somewhere between gold and light orange, almost transparent, average white head, decent retention and some lacing. Aroma is not too bright: hay, tart citric notes and a lactic/cheesy hint. Taste is half sweet, half sour (overall very light on sourness for the style). Tart green apple and citrus, slight lactic/cheesy sourness, a hint of hay/barnyard. Overall a bit more vivid than the aroma. Light to medium bodied, medium to high fizzy thin bubbled carbonation. Overall this is a not too impressive interpretation of the style; but its a super-easy, mildly sour gueuze, which is very easily enjoyable.

TimE (5230) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 3, 2016
Lots of oak, cat piss, funky, dry nose. The mouth is dry, oaky, barnyard, hay, very sharp. A classic lambic with big sour finish.

Svartvit (75) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2016
375ml bottle at home. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a small white head that quickly fades to a tiny ring. Aroma is lemon, hay, funk, grass, dusty grains. Taste is medium sour, light sweet with a longlasting fresh finish full of citrusy notes and funk. Light to medium body and very well carbonated, fizzy. A classic.

rumore (106) - Rimini, ITALY - NOV 22, 2016
From the tap, at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours pale gold with no foam. Aroma only gives typical spontaneous fermentation beer. Body is very light. Taste has moderate sourness. Nice and dry finish.

Goose Geuze (21) - COVENTRY, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2016
Bottle pours a nice amber/golden colour and slightly hazy with a big moderately long lasting white frothy head - High carbonation. Lemon, sour apple, farmyard aromas with an earthy, tart lemony vinous taste. A very refreshing drink and fine accompaniment to food especially cheese. A great example of a classic Geuze.

Zeer goede geuze met bekende smaak. Mooie stevige schuimkraag en een zeer malse lekkere smaak.
