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.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2011 A good old geuze. Boon is a pioneer on the lambic market! Sourish, bitter, good carbonation. very refreshing!

bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 20, 2011
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber with billowy white head. Falls away super quickly but a great looking beer. Aromas are all you would expect from a geuze. Hay barn yard funk, lemony sourness and Oak. Great stuff. Flavours are very sour as expected and remind me of grapefruit juice. Medium mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Brilliant beer,

Comprata in offerta speciale in un grande magazzino ad Arlon, questo lambic non mi ha entusiasmato particolarmente, per sempre un buon bere...

Great typical example of the style. Perfect for some one to try theyre first Oude Geuze. Pours a golden color with a dense white head. Musty/tart aroma with hints of dough. Earthy, tart, crisp lemon grass flavors. Crisp slightly astringent palate. Very drinkable.

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - JAN 10, 2011
Typical geuze pour with a frothy white head. Yummy oak barrel, hay, and cellar funk give way to must and acidity. Sparkling pillowy palate with a dry hay-like finish. What to say that hasnt already on this iconic geuze...

mansquito (6248) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 4, 2011
New Beer Distributors, NY 12oz ($6): Pours a hazy brownish orange color with a white head. Aroma is winy, acidic, tart, fruity, and some other adjectives that mean roughly the same thing. Lots of yeast, the natural kind. The taste is really sour and has that sour bite that you wish more moderately beers would occasionally have (alas they do not, if you want the sour you got to pay). It is the kind of taste that might make itself worth it because you can remind your mouth how it felt hours later. Really dry and tart. Tasty stuff. I could drink it all day. Really different nuances of the flavor come up through the duration of the drink, but it would be hard for me describe exactly how these nuances are manifested.

This is a very complex beer to say the least. This is my 3rd or 4th Lambic and I am still getting to grips with the complexities here. Kicking off with a mouth pouting sour taste which mellows as you continue. We are tasting this at the same time as the Geuze Boon Mariage Parfait for a bit of comparrison. This is the weaker of the 2 Floral, citrus aromas. Clear golden appearance with white foam. heavily sour with a medium body with a medium sour aftertaste

Leighton (20794) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2010
Bottle shared with Lyoli at Belgo. Pours a hazy orange gold with a strong, billowing white head. Nice and sour aroma, some funkiness and fruits. Flavor is very lightly sweet and biting, with strong citric acidity. Medium bodied with strong, massaging and palate-cleansing carbonation. Sharp, sour finish that clips the sides of the tongue. Very nice.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Pours a pale straw color. Moderate fizzy white head. Aroma is grass, funk and granny smith apples. Tart cider vinegar flavor, with a lingering mustiness in the finish. Nice crisp, clean mouthfeel.
