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.

Finwe (436) - Grankulla, FINLAND - JUN 15, 2009
75 cl bottle at Pikkulintu. Golden yellow colour with a vanishing white head. Sour aroma reminding of citrus fruits. The taste is dry with a lot of acid: the Brettanomyces has played its part well. Kiss your enamel goodbye.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 5, 2009
Bottle thanks to dchmela. Bright golden light orange pour with gauzy white big head that recedes but sticks around. Tart oaky nose with notes of lemons, acetic flavors, and yeast. Not nearly as tart as the Boon Marriage Parfait. Still pretty tasty.

emacgee (4659) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 3, 2009
Pours a bright hazy gold with a one finger white head. The nose shows some tartness and acidity, yeasty, some funk, mild phenolic. Flavor is tart and acidic, mildly astringent, doesnt have it going on. Yeasty. Tart acidic palate. Decent.

Rune (12007) - Troms, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2009
Sampled from bottle at CBF 09. Bright yellow-golden. Fading white head. Slightly sour to the nose. Assertive acidity of fruit and berries in the taste profile. Dry on the swallow. Nice drink to clear up my palate for the next drinks at the festival (15.05.2009).

Pipper (325) - Ohio, USA - MAY 31, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2009 Bottle at The Beer Engine Lakewood, OH. Pours a light medium amber/orange color with a white head. Sour kiwi aroma that I found really enjoyable. This was my first Lambic Geuze and I found the funkified citrus notes weird and great, especially the strange subtle beefy aftertaste. Also celery seeds figured into the taste somehow. This one was a hard one to put my finger on. Really liked that it was so harshly bubbly from the sip to the mouthfeel and then smooth mouthfeel at the finish as if you almost forgot you had a sip at all.

kuphish (381) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2009
375ml bottle. Pours a large, white head with a light-orange body. Interesting citrus-sour smell with some old, musty closet tones. Tart, lip-puckering sour taste that had me thinking of a sweaty gym upon exhalation. Lively carbonation and medium bodied with a somewhat metallic and bitter finish. Overall a very fun beer to drink and one that I hope to have again in the future.

EithCubes (5754) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 25, 2009
Corked and caged green 375. Taste is tart, acidic, sour, metallic, but not extreme. Steady carbonation in a light golden pour. Rocky off-white head. Taste puckers the mouth, very dry, sour, some harsh notes, lightly metallic, stings the throat a touch, light. Musty earthy note, not soil-earthy, but non0funky dank-earthy. Medium body, tangy feel, very nice. A good introductory geuze.

Cybercat (5485) - Georgia, USA - MAY 23, 2009
Pours a somewhat hazy straw-yellow with a thick and not persistent white head - not very inspiring, but this is the beers weakest point. Aroma is quite strong, yeasty with malty and fruity undertones. Flavor is rich and crisp, malty with a good sour-apple component and a touch of hops. Texture is edgy and fizzy, leaving a pleasantly sour aftertaste.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAY 22, 2009
THOUGHTS: I opened this a little early. The Bottle had a date of 18-02-2028. But hell, it was still nice. One day Ill have to go to Belgium and try on that is already aged, because I can wait a couple years for a beer, but I dont have the patience for 20 years. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a slightly hazy, light to medium yellow with mesmerizing, slow carbonation beads and a huge, white head that mostly diminished, but still kept a fairly thick sheet that left fair to good lacing. The aroma was mostly sour fruit, cobweb-like yeast, light funk, dust, champagne, lemon, and a little peach. The initial flavor was sour and acidic; while the finish was very sour and acidic with and average to long duration. There was lemon, sour fruit, dust, funk and slight chalk. The light to medium body was dry with very fizzy carbonation and a dry, moderately astringent and ever so slightly chalky finish.
