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.

Flaske 0,375l. Gylden på farge. OK luftig skum. Sterk syrlig aroma. Smaken er tung og fruktig. Svakt syrlig ettersmak.

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 (4589) - 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 i’ve 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.

screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2010
Little hazy golden body. First big bubbly head, but to soon disapears to nothing. Aroma is sour, "barnyardish". Flavor is also little sour and bitter. Little dry palate.

Plovmand (8266) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2010

callmemickey (4542) - 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.
