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.

As this is my first foray into the odd world of geuze lambics, its pretty much what i expected, a very dry saison flavor. tight bubbles like champagne, but the palate is very "fat", not crisp like i was expecting. traditional saison qualities and characteristics. one to try and perhaps as my palate expands with time i might come to enjoy this style, but for now, im not so sure.

mcberko (16595) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 7, 2010
375mL bottle, pours hazy golden with a big white head. Aroma of yeast, sour berries and champagne. Flavour is extremely dry yeast and citrus, followed by lots of lingering sourness. Not bad.

Pours with a hazy amber-gold body and a long lasting white head. Aroma is musty, sour, acidic, cobwebs and lemon. Taste is tart, acidic, must, white wine and well balanced. Lively bubbles. Fruity with a dry finish.

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - JUL 16, 2010
Bottle. 2003-2004 vintage. Slightly hazy golden color with a big sparkling head. The aroma is mildly funky with lots of grass, lemon and grapefruit to it. A mild acidic note as well. The flavor is medium sweet and tart with some funky brett, grass and plenty of citric notes - tart lemon, sweet lemon and slightly bitter grapefruit. Hints of wood and mud. The finish has a mineral note to it as well as some malts and grass. Moderate body, lacks dryness. The mouthfeel is quite a downer. This is a decent gueuze. Easy to drink yet decently characterful.

robinvboyer (4425) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2010
bottle at Le Cheval Blanc Golden pour with a very frothy white head. Aroma of wet hay, wet grass, and some very tart citrus. Not the best lambic ive had, but still very good. the tartness is a little muddled, and could be a little more upfront. Maybe its an old bottle and its mellowing. Still nice, but i prefer more funk.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2012 Unknown vintage opened June 2010.

A: Orange-golden colored body with a thin but thick off-white head. Subsides to a nice skim and color. Sporadic clumping of lace throughout consumption.

S: Musty oak, acidic lemon, and a nice funky yeast. Even keeled without one component dominating.

T: Like the nose this is well balanced between difference components. Acidic lemon, musty oak barrel, barnyard funk, and some grain. Perhaps the least sour and tart of the widely available gueuzes from the big producers.

M: Medium bodied. Even carbonation. Not sparkling, but sufficiently lively. Linger must, but not much in the way of acidity.

O: A nice effort from Frank Boon and the gang. If you see this at a good price or are looking to explore different gueuzes this is a staple to try.
