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.

mikkopen (1149) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2010
375 ml bottle. Slightly hazy golden yellow colour, thick and fluffy white head. Dry, spicy aroma of apples and citrus fruits. The flavour is very dry and sour, with grapefruit, apples and pepper. Fizzy carbonation; rather light-bodied. Im not a lambic fan, but this is quite interesting.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2010
bottle from andrew shared at sourfest #1... pours a semi-clear apple cider brown with a thin soapy head... musty less funky aroma compared to the hanssen with some green apple, chemical phenols... flavors were musty cobwebs with the aforementioned off-ness. medium carbonation and not as nice as the first geuze. some bitterness as well in the finish.

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 26, 2010
Bottle purchased at 2be in Brugges. Pours a pale yellow with a large white head. The aroma is citric, earthy and funky. The taste is funky, sweaty, earthy, lemony, and peppery. Not bad at all.

imdownthepub (14313) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2010
Bottled 375ml cork & caged from Hopduvel Warehouse, Ghent. Clouded orange with white head. If you had some of these flavours in any other beer, it would go back, but in Geuze Lambic, it just works. Sparkling, citric and tart, lemon rind with sour apples, its just crazy but very drinkable.

Blom (837) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2010
Hazy orange with a fragmented head. Funky aromas with notes of lemon, horse and basement. The flavour is sour and dry, but still drinkable and refreshing.

dalepryor (305) - Paducah, Kentucky, USA - FEB 19, 2010
Orange pour, slightly hazy with thin cream head. The aroma coming out of the glass says sour, lactic, barnyard, must. The taste isnt as sour as it smells unfortunately, i was really expecting something extremely tart but this tends to lean towards the sweet side of things, it is still acidic however more in a lemony sense. A very tasty lambic, not sour like cantillon but good on its own

Bottle. Light golden pour with a bit of cloudiness. Citrus, apple, leather, spice and mineral. Citrus, spice, fruit with sweetness and bitterness. Dry. Interesting bottle

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale ber alles, Arizona, USA - FEB 15, 2010
bottle 1/11/2010. dirty yellow brown tinted pour with a scant head. stinky, funk filled nose with notes of bruised apples, dust, moist earthiness, must, minerals, lemon peels and lemony tartness and an herbal grassy quality. the flavor is everything i just typed... along with being spicy, intensely dry and not overly sour. the body has some yeasty oomph to it yet it is crisp, dry, refreshing and terribly easy to drink a lot of... 7/4/7/4/17/3.9

Bottle, many thanks to hobbersr for sharing! Pours cloudy orange with a thick white head. Nose is nice and sweaty, lemon and dust, good acid, soft mouthfeel, earth and sherbet lemons. Good.

judasbeer (431) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 31, 2010
Appearance: Cloudy, but bright golden with lively, effervescent look. Fingerwide, airy, fluffy white head. Aroma: Fresh lime peels, grapfruity bitersweet-tartness, balanced leather and horse-blanket notes. Flavor: Tart, but not puckering, grapefruity main impression. Almost sharply dry initially, and gets more sour at the end with some spicy somewhat sulphurous interplay. Mouthfeel: Bittersweet, dry, fruity, tart with mineral background. Filling yeasty texture, effervescent quality. Overall: Interesting Gueuze with lot of citrusy tartness and dry mouthfeel.
