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.

tlind2 (1682) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2009
375 ml bottle. Golden color, huge airy white head. Sour, fruity aroma. Tart flavor with lemon and blackcurrant leaves, malty background. Surprisingly light body for the ABV, high carbonation. Pretty nice for the style.

floydian1 (1432) - FNQ, Australia, - NOV 21, 2009
Corked 37.5cl bottle (best before year of 2028). Slightly hazy deep orange pour with a huge dense white head that reduced slowly to a very stable collar of foam that laces well. Aromas of Brettanomyces yeasts, oranges, lemons, apples and damp wood. Flavour is tart orangey citrus fruitiness with a wonderfully dry bitterish finish. Medium bodied with a lively carbonation but still very easy to drink. It is less harshly acidic and smoother than the Cantillon geuzes. An excellent lambic.

Alphadelic (2217) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 17, 2009
Bottle 2006-7: A slight haze to this sandy, golden ale. I find it a little brash in its sourness in the aroma. It lacks most of the delicacy I look for in a good gueuze. Over fizzy with big wood/hay flavours and a petrol dominance. Not much of a sourness to it, especially compared to the aroma. No bite here, I dont like one bit.

TET (2929) - Kaarina, FINLAND - NOV 14, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2011 Slightly cloudy, golden beer with huge white head. Overfermented fruits, overcooked bananas and sour green apples in the aroma. Same elements can be found in flavour, fermented fruits, apples, white vinegar, int of bananas and strong suorness, dry and long aftertaste. Quite easy and refreshning to drink. Very sour beer, that taste better and better when the glass drain; refreshning summer beer.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2009
05 bottle at the First CST sample #2. Pours golden, looks a bit syrupy. Aroma is also a bit sweeter with lots of funk, honey, definitely on the sweeter side. This is still a bit of a mess, so much residual sugar, quite funky though, finishing oddly bitter and tannic. Sharp fizzy soda pop carbonation.

eManu (543) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 20, 2009
Pours a hazy orange yellow color with thick white head. Aroma are strong, with fruity and apples and citrus. Flavors of strong sour apples, oak, and a bit smokey. A dry and acid ending, Not sweet, but a well balanced and refreshing geuze.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1120) - FINLAND - OCT 9, 2009
Bottle. Deep golden colour with a huge white head. Slightly stuffy aroma with notes of apples and citrus. The flavour is sour with hints of apples and lemon. High carbonation. Decent gueuze, not as acidic as I was expecting.

Argentine (14) - Walla Walla, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2009
Aroma: Apple mush, barn wood, hints of clove Taste: Wonderful brettanomyces character reminicent of tart fruit/sour candy. Oak barrel favor expressed to a elegantly withheld level.
