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.

With its unforgettable aroma and the unique ’wild’ yeasty sourness of very, very fine gueuze this is an absolutely outstanding beer. All hail to Frank Boon! This is really better than the best wine. And of course, the label is great in its simplicity, too.

A number of characteristics of this beer compare to a good cheese: (1) the older the better, so check the year printed on the bottle (2) it tastes better than it smells - yes the aroma of fermentation can be disturbing for newcomers (3) It is certainly not for everyone. But for an official Gueuze-Disciple, this formidable brew, strong in flavor, sour, with a reasonable hint of fermentation, can’t get any better. Among my top 5 beers I sampled.
