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.

Orange, white head. Lemon and white grape aroma, tart berries, hay, funk, herbal notes. Light bubbly body, more white grape, berry, moderate tartness. Some lemon comes forward in the midpallate, becomes sweaty and horseblankety, mildly bitter finish with hay.\

2 bottles. Bottle conditioned. Large white head, visible carbonation, golden body. Looked almost like champagne. Raspberries, hop, malt, mint. Bitter and sour. Long bitter finish. Delicious. The champagne of beers.

77ships (9267) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 10, 2011
[email protected]: bottle says 2007-2008 making this perhaps a 2008 vintage, not sure as to how I should read it, it is good until 2030, amber coloured, decent but not extreme amounts of tartness with some sourness, tastes barnyard, cellar, cemetery, lemon, fruits, vinegar, sherry wood, white pepper, medium acidic & dry finish

troopie (2303) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - APR 8, 2011
Bottle. Pours pale yellow with a few bubbles, looks like a cider. Smells like a dirty barnyard, odor is unspeakable. Flavour, once you get past that ghastly stink, isnt bad. Its rather like a home made cider, but with a fuller body. Sour finish, rather off seeming.

ClubGonzo (5647) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 8, 2011
Bottle @ Cafe Spesial, Bergen. Pours a hazy straw-colored body with a thick, white foamy retention on top. Nose is immediately "bretty"; barnyard funk, acidic notes, hay. Hints of red apples and French "chevre" cheese. Taste is very dry, with crisp, near-parching notes of white wine, cellar mold, champagne yeast and grassy hops. Very low in tartness, the regular citric, sour/bitter taste is nearly completely replaced by a dry, champagne-like profile. Bitter, near-earthy finish. This is by far the most dry geuze Ive ever tried, and a complex and original lambic. I do prefer them more tart and sour on a personal note, but this is definitely a nice brew from Frank Boon.

AlbertC (277) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2011
Bottle 4 yrs old. Big head, yellow cloudy appearance. Aroma is the horse/stable style with some moderate depth. Taste is clearly funky, brett notes, big wheat/funk aroma with a long finish of sour and refreshness going back and forth.

chibuck (3513) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2011
The beer pours a light hazy gold with a small light white head, not much retention or lacing. The aroma is medium tart, not a ton of funk, slight leather. The taste is similar to the aroma, its medium in funk and taste, doesnt bring a ton to the table. Its fairily drinkable. Overall, this is ok. Probably a good geuze for a beginner. It gives you a little funk but allows it to be very drinkable.

ndon (857) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2011
Bottle at the belgian restaurant near covent garden. Pours a hazy gold/amber, with a thin fading white head. Aroma and taste were very similar, tge sourness blasting through in both, but with some lemon, mandarin, and a light sweet caramel.

mumares (98) - BELGIUM - MAR 24, 2011
Pours cloudy orange with a good long lasting head. Aroma is citrus, apple and some mild barnyard aroma. Nothing aggressively sour, but just a very drinkable and mild geuze.
