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.

Hazy yellow color. Very carbonated. Not quite a funk-laden as other geuzes but still quite nice. Tart but not too puckery. Serving: bottle

davey101 (751) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 1, 2011
750ml caged + corked bottle. 23-04-2030. A - Typical gueze. A cloudy copper body and a fluffy white head that stuck around for a bit. S - Sour apples and some lemon rind. There is a good bit of earthiness and grass. Light funk. T - Extremely disappointing. There is some sour fruit, earthiness, and just a bit of brett funk, but it all seems very watered down and light. The flavors are there, they just tend to vanish instantly. The mouth feel is spritzy and quick. O - One of the weakest guezes I’ve tried. Looked about right, and the aromas were all there; I just found the taste and mouth feel to be severely lacking. I know lambic can have batch variations, but I remember drinking a 2007 vintage 375ml bottle a few months ago and really enjoying it.

bbbeer (878) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 30, 2011
Hazy golden with lots of bubbles and medium off white head. Aroma lemon, grass, floral. Medium body with lots of carbonation no alcohol. Flavor is sweet and sour, mixture of lemon and tart apples, finish dry but not overly so. Quite interesting.

hazy gold with a dense but thin white head; medium body with very high carbonation.

aroma: dry, tart, woody, somehow autumnal.

taste: lots of tart acidity, very dry; notes of grapefruit rind, wood, hay, and various phantom fruit esters.

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2011
2004/2005, bottle at home. Unclear golden color, big, fuzzy white head. Aroma is green, sour apples and some wood. Flavor is sour (not extreme at all) with apple and some bitterness. Some way mild and easy drinking. Long, applefruity aftertaste/mouthfeel. Dry. High carbonation. Enjoyable lambic!

Palme (4823) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 22, 2011
0,375l bottle from EtreGourmet. This Boon pours a fizzing light cloudy pale orange body with a massive fluffy fading white head. Aroma is light tart, sour green apples, not quite right green plums, wood, a little bit of that barn/horse aroma, brett and some not-right strawberries. Aggressive carbonation, it has a oily mouthfeel and its medium-bodied. Tastes first really fizzing tart. Then it just turns everything up a notch to extreme fizzing and super tart! Almost made my eyes running. You can also sense some nice notes of apples, some not so nice notes of cardboard and hints of wet dog. Ends everlasting tart and bone, and then I mean BOONe dry..

3.2
reebtogi (6378) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 5, 2011
375mL corked bottle. High carbonation since cork shot a few feet when released from bottle. Poured pale golden color with loads of head and some lacing. Aromas of yeast and wood. Taste slightly sour with a slight touch of hops. Tons of carbonation and mild body with great mouthfeel.

3.5
hawthorne00 (4111) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2013 2006/7 bottle. Cage only half off, the cork shot 20 feet away. Gold with an inch of white head. Some floaties, very high bead. Aroma of apples, lemon, the barn. Creamy mouthfeel. Quite tart with citrus and mellow funk. Some almonds. Some floral notes in the dry finish. [3.5]

9/10 bottle. Again the aroma flatters to deceive. Just lacks the piercing intensity that’s promised. A bit flabby, even. Maybe much older would be better.

3.5
Prokroustis (745) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - AUG 1, 2011
Cloudy pale golden colour, white head. Acidic sour aroma of lemon, yeast and apples. Fully carbonated light palate. Acidic flavour with lemon, some green apples, salt, with a dry finish. Quite nice and interesting.
