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.

kermis (12869) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2011
Bottle at De Paas. Yeasty aroma. Carbonated with tart and sour flavor. Refreshing beer

3.7
DiarmaidBHK (4785) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2011
Looks like champagne as I poured it from the bottle. It’s got a big fluffy head but unlike champagne it lingers. Massive aroma of yeast and other unrecognizable smells. Sour on the tongue with a hint if sweetness. Finishes with a moderate amount of linger.

3.7
JaBier (7841) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2011
Bottle at Redlight Redlight. Clear gold pour (until I dumped the yeast dregs in toward the end) with a fluffy white head. Tart citrus nose with funk and a bit of a peppery note. Funky flavor with pepper, lemon and aggressive sourness. A bit of a thin finish, but other than that a solid sour.

Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - MAY 3, 2011
very carbonated, sweet, tart on nose. Very tart and sour flavors, bitter lingering finish, really tasty actually.

jeremytoni (3058) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - MAY 1, 2011
From a bottle poured a straw color with a fair amount of head. Tart malty flavor with a quick finish.

33cl bottle shared with a few friends. a little sour/dry. blond amber colour.

3.8
Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 23, 2011
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.\

3.8
dynamiteninja (1853) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2011
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.

3.4
Blairgus (4535) - California, USA - APR 18, 2011
2 June 2010, bottle. hazy, almost white colour. medium body. sour is the primary element. tastes a lot like champaign but not nearly as fizzy. has a slight metallic finish.

4.2
77ships (9638) - 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
