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.

12.7 oz bottle pours hazy amber with a white head. Aroma of grass and citrus. Taste is tart, grass and kink of funky. It is my first Lambic.

Very tart and some chemical plastic aroma. Hazy yellow. Tart bandaid taste up front with a citrus of ugly fruit ending. Bottle

Lett tåkete, strågult med lavt skum. Grønne epler, aprikos og stall i duft og smak. Behagelig surhet, frisk.

Color dorado anaranjado, turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor (muchas burbujas diminutas y retención decente). Carbonatación media. Textura acuosa y ligeramente efervescente. Aroma ácido suave, ligeramente herbal o especiado (tiene un punto de frescor interesante y no tira a vinagre). Ligeramente frutal, también. En boca es ácida (algo más de lo que esperaba teniendo en cuenta el aroma), explosiva. Frutal, fresca y con ese punto seco desde un inicio que te anuncia el golpe suave de amargor final y ese postgusto donde la boca te pide más. Muy rica.

Bottle 37,5 cl. Bière or avec petite mousse blanche. Nez : levures, fruits, groseille à maquereau, raisin, pomme verte, citron. Bouche : aigrelette, effervescente mais fraîche. Saveurs de raisin, cidre, pomme et en finale (sèche) une moyenne amertume. Bonne !

one of the legendary geuzes. hazy deep golden color is attractive, head retention is nice. funky aroma. acidic sourness dominates the taste. like eating salty cracker. perfect harmonize. high carbonation and watery texture. respectful.

Sparf (283) - SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2017
På en träig, mustig bas ligger citronskal och en lätt stallartad källardoft. Färgen är gyllengul och brygden aningen disig. Ett tätt, jämnt skum som halveras snabbt. Även i smaken återfinns träbasen och nu med mycket mer citronkaraktär och syrliga ljusa bär. Jästsyran får tyvärr stå tillbaka lite väl mycket för citronsyran. Bra kropp och kolsyra samt en mjuk avrundning.

3.8
datrael (501) - Kraków, POLAND - JUN 8, 2017
W aromacie białe wino, stajnia, gospodarstwo, bretty, siano, trochę sera pleśniowego, przyprawy i zioła. W wyglądzie złote, klarowne z przyzwoitą białą pianą. W smaku gospodarsko, ziołowo, brettowo, przyprawowo, trochę białego wytrawnego wina, nieco sera pleśniowego, do tego stare jabłka. Wytrawne, taniczne, kwaśność średnia, goryczka niska, pijalność dość wysoka. Ogólnie całkiem przyjemne, relaksujące geuze
