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.

GTAEgeek (2414) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 28, 2011
375 mL bottle. Pours a bright, pale orange color with a large, frothy, white head. The aroma is strong lemon zest, seltzer water, and lots bready yeast. The flavor is very sweet and tart up front, with a significant funky bitterness coming through in the finish. The palate is medium, very bubbly and sticky. Overall, a sour tasting beer with a champagne feel. Nice.

Very interesting lambic with apple flavour. Somewhat cidery taste, but hard to tell what this actually tastes like. Definitely worth a try.

375ml bottle. Pours slightly hazy golden with gentle bubbles and some head (more than expected). The nose has green apples and yeast. The taste has sour green apples then a lemon note on the end. The palate is rich but tight in structure, the texture in the middle section is again, rich but tight and there is a very long dry finish. There is also something oaky and oxidised in there somewhere. Overall, I actually find this reasonably accessible for a Geuze - not quite as drying and sour as others.

illinismitty (2377) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 23, 2011
Bottle from Midtown. Cork shot out like a rocket. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Funky ester aroma. Medium bodied with a fine spritzy carbonation. Flavor of lemon, oak, and pale wheat malts. Dry and sour, but not intense. Nice

ScottyP (425) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - JUL 22, 2011
Pours a cloudy golden with a thick foamy off white head. Aroma of lemon, sour apple, bread, barnyard funkiness. Similar taste, super tart/dry/funky finish. Lots of carbonation. Damn fine geuze.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 22, 2011
Pours a super foamy, pillowy, into a lacing beige head with a hazy golden body. Aromas of lemongrass and a slight funk. Flavors of bitter lemon rind and some funk. Finish is dry and bitter.

DutchDrebus (6196) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2011
C: Typical gueuze colour. Smells sour, but not in a likable way to me. Tastes pretty okay, well balanced. Better mouthfeel than most gueuze beers.

sfhodense (4788) - Odense NØ, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2011
Pours amber with a white head. Aroma is barnyard, herbal notes and light grapefruit. Flavour is grapefruit, leather, herbal and light grass.

375 bottle. Golden color with a white head. Not overwhelmingly sour but had a nice barnyard funk to it.

Mortlach (2510) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 30, 2011
30/06/2011 375ml bottle (vintage 2004-2005). Degustazione da Birra+. Ambrata chiara, lievemente torbida, buona schiuma biancastra, abbastanza persistente. Aroma intenso acidulo, con note agrumate di limone e di pane. In bocca è morbida, acida ma non eccessiva, con belle note agrumate di limone. Corpo medio, buona carbonazione. Geuze abbastanza elementare e morbida ma assolutamente equilibrata e godibile.
