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.

thepatrickman (1145) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 20, 2016
Bottle at home. Easily the most carbonated beer Ive ever seen -- the cork popped off with a loud bang as soon as I unscrewed the wire cage, and it hit the ceiling hard enough that it left a dent!
This tastes like an archetypal geuze. Its light, fizzy, and funky, with a good amount of farmyard taste from the Brett and a moderate amount of sourness. It doesnt stand out particularly in any one way, but its a great "classic" geuze.

Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Smells tart and acidic. Taste is tart, subtle wood, acidic, and lightly fruity. Light-bodied with a smooth texture and sharp mouth-carbonation, Boon Oude Geuze finishes with a lingering acidic bite.
