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.

Nickls (2417) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2010
(Old BA rate - bottle) Poured with a white latte-like frothy head that didnt stick around too long. After the head dissipates, there are spotty remnants that look like white mold on top of bread. Pretty clear orange gold color with noticeable rising carbonation. Wow, a bit flowery at first, but then quickly moves to the vinegar/wine sourness, and just a touch of barnyard (not that strong really, which I would have expected more of in the style). Definite puckering sourness; floral; metallic and earthy; and savory-like finish. Thinner MF, nice sparkliness, dry, dry, dry. Certainly not what I would consider one of the more drinkable gueuzes that Ive had to-date. This one is definitely interesting, but a little harder around the edges.

DerWeg (1598) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 15, 2010
375ml bouille - BBD 04 25 2027 - cork ejects with loud POP, Boon Gueuze pours a great foamy white head over clear orange - gold coat thats very attractive. Lacing and carbonation are silky. Aromas at room temp begin predominantly sulfuric, indicating bottle may be a bit young. This seems to blow off with glass rest. Also musty stone cellar, biting citrus, fresh turned earth and mineral. Really gets in the sinuses and opens the senses. Taste is straight-up dry and tart (for my tolerance) with apple peel, dry lemon, earth stone and some of that sulfur and petrol. Later getting some more fruit of tangerine, tart guava, under-ripe muscat grape. Some very late notes of earthy sweet spice, kola. I will re-try this bottle later cooled down a bit. Feel is slightly off-medium to light, with long sustained notes of dryness on the top of the tongue and the palate. Its a true experience of discovering layers, overcoming challenges and appreciating subtleties.

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2010
Gift bottle from Amrando629, thanks much! Yellow color with white head. Aroma is citrus peel, acidic, cellar, true to itself gueuze flavors. Nice density, with good carbonation, and a bitter, dry aftertaste.

rmasa (324) - Vantaa, FINLAND - APR 20, 2010
Sparkling orange color, large white head; aroma of citrus fruits like grapefruit, slightly sour, but also somewhat sweet, faint woody notes; flavor is quite sweet, grapefruity and a bit sweaty; not hugely sour, but especially the aftertaste is very tart and salty; medium body, crisp, but still quite smooth mouthfeel.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - APR 20, 2010
Bottle at Koekoek, Asse, Belgium.
Pours a deep, cloudy yellow with an aroma of springy barnyard, lemon zest, and sweet hay. Mouthf-puckering sour lemon hay, medium barnyard, and a touch of horse blanket dance on the tongue. Tickles the tongue. Fantastic gueuze.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2013 Brassin 2006/2007 en bouteille au St-Bock. Cette gueuze est trs agrable en bouche avec une acidit moins prononc que dautre. Une certaine sucrosit est perceptive. Elle a une belle couleur paille. Cette bire est encore trs jeune et mriterait quelle vieillisse encore en bouteille quelques annes. Aussi bue le brassin 2009-10.
