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.

koekiesbakker (89) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2010
Quite bitter, lots of funk, amazing amounts of wood. Bit of citrus in there as well. A kind of harsh bitter after taste that doesn’t change the drinkability for the better. Still good beer though.

Pours gold with lots of bubbles. Aroma is funky, apple cider and grass. Taste is tart with barnyard funk on the finish. Shared with Chalsk and as he noted the funk def lingers a little long. However this is very crisp and easy to drink. It was a nice palate cleanser after the darker and heavier beers prior to dinner.

[3366-20100902] Bottle. Herbal mild bandaid aroma. Slightly hazy, light orange body with a long-lasting foamy off-white head. Sour yeast flavour has a lingering sour aftertaste. Medium body is quite sour. Lovely sour beer.

The Geuze. Bottle shared with Leafs93 at Cloverleaf. Pours a pale golden color with a thick white foam head. Has an aroma of funk and grass. Tart taste with funk lingering on the finish. A bit much in my opinion. I prefer those Gueze’s that get in and get out quick and clean. Would prefer a cleaner finish.

Countbeer (6589) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2010
Bottle: 2007/2008: Big airy white head, disappears slowly. Very light cloudy yellow. Smell is a mix of sour, yeast, grain, barnyard, yellow fruit, lemon. Taste is fresh, light sour, more citric with a nice balanced mix of yellow fruit, lime, lemon, grapefruit, orange, yeast, light hints of wood.

tommeagher (222) - Jersey City, New Jersey, USA - NOV 15, 2010
Very sparkling and sour. It has the citrusy taste of a grapefruit with little of the sweetness. It will make your face pucker. Unlike most any beer you’ve ever had.

dagimp (1008) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2010
NOW WITH 100% SPONTANEOUS FERMENTATION!!!!! From a 375ml * 12.7 fl oz corked and caged bottle into a snifter. Pours with a massive fizzy head with dissipated within 5 mins leaving no lacing. Aroma of peach, lemon, funk and grass. Pretty biting. Mouthfeel is very dry and fizzy although after leaving it out a few minutes the carbonation subsides a little. Taste is puckery. Nice funky vinegery taste with raspberries, peach, lime and other fruit. A fine lambic that I hope to drink again.

Early amateur rating warning! Not quite as sharp as some other Geuzes I’ve had so not bad at all - pretty drinkable.

wedgie9 (2703) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 29, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2010 Tasted from bottle at Hopleaf (while enjoying mussels of course). Pours cloudy orange with a massive frothy white head that lasts forever. The nose is sour and funky, but a bit more fruity than most straight gueuzes I have had, displaying some peach aroma. There is also a bit more bread aroma than I have had on a gueuze. The flavor starts off with the citrus and funky sour, but shows more gooseberry and sour peach than any other gueuze I have had. The funky brett flavor really comes through on the back of the palate. The body is medium with nearly sparkling carbonation and a long finish dominated by brett funk.

3.5
Atom (2592) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 26, 2010
12oz bottle pours golden/orange with bubbly off white head. Aroma is citrus, yeast, grass, with a slight musky funk. Taste similar to aroma with nice tartness, lively carbonation with a dry finish. Very enjoyable.
