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.

callmemickey (4526) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2010
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.

MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Sample at The Great Lambic Summit. Had this before, couldve sworn I rated it, but 2oz is all you need... Nose of egg, light lemon, and bread crust. Incredibly acrid flavor, very tough to drink with the carbonation so ramped up that salt and bitterness dominate the touches of lemon, no yeast detected. Off nose, weak flavor, and a body that stings the mouth and mutes the experience. Not much fun.

JAXSON (591) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2010
Tiny pour at Lambic Summit event. Cloudy light gold with a large white head. Nose was sour, a bit off, kind of salty. Aptly described as "eggy". Really strong carbonation, a bit salty in the mouth. Relatively thin, a bit watery.

vtafro (7409) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2010
Bottle pour at Lambic Summit. Hazy golden pour with some white head. Paled in comparison to 3F and Cantillon gueuzes. Musky aroma and flavor is only lightly tart, more earth and mineral tones. Could use age.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 10, 2010
Sampled at the Secret Summit. Pours with a beautifully dense, creamy head that has excellent retention and lacing that tops a cloudy, glowing, deep yellow. Doesnt have the diminishing, fizzy head typical of high acid lambic. Priming sugar added? Aroma is corny, grainy, sweaty, lots of pilsner notes. Taste is lemony, lager-like, really dominated by lemons. Palate is watery, grainy.

MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2010
Verre, dune bouteille, au Cheval Blanc. Armes citronns, de levure sauvage et de crales. Robe blonde et trouble, belle petite mousse et effervescence active. En bouche, des notes de brettanomyces affirmatives accompagnent une belle touche citronne et rustique. Finale lgrement lactique et trs sche. Relativement peu sre pour une gueuze, mais la finale trs sche la rend trs agrable.
