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.

Golden with nice, white head. Medium bodied and slightly carbonated. Grassy and fruity aroma. Sour taste with fruity notes. Nice lasting finish. Delicious!

Sample at The Great Lambic Summit. Had this before, could’ve 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 (604) - 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 (7445) - 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 (10000) - San Diego, 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. Doesn’t 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, d’une bouteille, au Cheval Blanc. Arômes citronnés, de levure sauvage et de céréales. Robe blonde et trouble, belle petite mousse et effervescence active. En bouche, des notes de brettanomyces affirmatives accompagnent une belle touche citronnée et rustique. Finale légèrement lactique et très sèche. Relativement peu sûre pour une gueuze, mais la finale très sèche la rend très agréable.

dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2010
Bottle @ home. Orange pour, medium off wite head. Aroma of green apple, subtle brett. Flavour is very dry bitter and sourness, long lingering, pretty nice.

Nickls (2524) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2010
(Old BA rate - bottle) Poured with a white latte-like frothy head that didn’t 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 I’ve had to-date. This one is definitely interesting, but a little harder around the edges.
