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.

Bright92 (9) - - NOV 10, 2012
Beautiful straw colour with a nice thick head which sticks around and leaves some good lacing. Smells like someone threw some lemons in an old musty barnyard. Its quite pungent. Lemon and pepper are dominant in the taste. Quite dry and left me puckering after my first sip. Seems to be quite a solid Gueuze from my limited experience with the style. I enjoyed it at any rate.

Pours clear, blonde, fizzing, with a minimal white head. The aroma contains barnyard, cheese, dough, vinegar and hops. It tastes medium sweet and medium to heavy sour. Fizzy carbonation, slick texture, medium long dry finish. A classic Geuze.

drjoeng (1204) - SINGAPORE - MAY 1, 2017
2014/15 bottling 7%ABV. Lambic Poured out gold. 8 SRM. Nose has some nice clean spontaneous aromas with wet straw, dirt, manure. Hint of acetic and/or ammonia. Mouthfeel is heavy juice. Palate has dough, wheat flour. Mellow sour that is a little broader. Nice finish at the end which is woody and bitter and reminds me of the marriage parfait. Bitter has a little linger to it and entirely references a nice full-bodied champagne.
