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.

gueuzeisgod (113) - Graham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 21, 2008
355 ml bottle, best before 25/04/2027, does not have ’oude’ on the label- forceful champagne like carbonation behind the cork, has a very full and funky aroma, lemony and acidic, half-rotted hay, a touch of wet leather. Taste is grapefruit pith, citric acid, oak cask,a little remaining body exits leaving behind nothing but dry dry dry. I love gueuze.

CH-303 (2171) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - JUN 27, 2008
Appearance: Cloudy amber, almost orange. Lots of head. Aroma: Just like a cider. Lemony, hint of wheat. Taste: Sour. A bit like cider. Lemony. Yuck! Info: 375ml bottle, 27/2-2006, 83/300, 51/500

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUN 24, 2008
A hazy golden colored beer, with a huge off white head. It disappears very soon. The aroma is malty sour, with tones of oak in the back. Also some citrus. The taste is sour with sweet tones. It has the flavor of oak. The after taste is some dry. The sparkeling stays for a very long time. The combination of tastes like bitter, a little fruity are staying for a while.

ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - JUN 23, 2008
Pours a nice golden color with a good fizzy white head. Aroma is a little bit of that sharp wild yeast smell with some good light citrus notes. Flavor is super dry with some good white fruit notes, grapefruit, and some sharp flavors. Nice and sour as well. This is a good geuze.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 21, 2008
Bottle 2002/03 (in NZ), pours a dark gold, slightly hazed, with white bubbled head. Sour aroma, a little musty, but with a fresh citrus note. Very very dry, dominating the palate. A sweeter fruit on the front of the tongue, but plenty of sour grapefruit as you swallow. Minerally notes in the finish. That dominating dryness makes it difficult to rate this as a top Lambic.

taunusmies (355) - FINLAND - JUN 18, 2008
Pours hazy yellow/golden colour with a decent head. Fizzy, dry mouthfeel. Taste is dry, crisp and sour, has notes of citrus fruits, apples, vinegar and grapefruits. Has some slight sweetness. Finish is lemony bitter. Interesting beer.

Wegro (332) - Fresno, California, USA - JUN 17, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2008 Skunky aroma made me think it was an infected bottle. I kind of like that skunk smell anyway though. pours a great gold color with lots of crap floating around. Flavor is acidic and strong, very dry fruity flavor. some spiciness maybe. Thick but bubbly and refreshing. Ive never had a gueuze before but I definitely like this one. too bad about the steep price tag :\
