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.

Somehow I have never rated this in my time on Ratebeer. First geuze I ever tried and still very nice. 37.5 cL Bottle at home. Pours hazy golden with a large white head. Aroma has some citrus, funk, wood and tartness. Taste is soft to medium sour with citrus, wood, a bit of funk and malts. Medium body and carbo. Nicely balanced gueze, excellent to try for people new to the style.

Barwa jasna, piana szybko znika. Aromat średnio intensywny. W smaku kwaśne ale subtelne i delikatne, goryczka na finiszu nie zbyt mocna. Fajne piwo ale czegoś mi brakuje.

Very easily drinkable. Seems to be the point. Some tartness and green apples, but somewhat relaxed and compromising.

Zilverenmaan (154) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2017
Good but tastes rather subtle: good funk, fruity (citrus), a little bitterness, a little astringent too, a lot of yeast though. Good but no thrills.

huineman (670) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 5, 2017
2013-2014 vintage, 375 ml bottle. Pours cloudy pale golden, thick white head. Intense aroma is cider, green apple, bread dough, yeast. Taste is very dry and very sour: neither sweetness nor bitterness at all. Lasts longer than I expected. Very nice geuze.

PowY (666) - AUSTRIA - FEB 27, 2017
375 ml bottle. Pours a hazy orange golden with a white head. The aroma reminds of barnyard, old sweat and some vinegar notes. Light to medium body with a lively carbonation. The taste is heavily sour with a light bitterness and some acidity. Flavor of acidic citric fruits, white wine and unripe berries. Dry finish.
