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. stefanaalten (3) - North Berwick, SCOTLAND - SEP 16, 2016 does not count
Just the right degree of sourness. Love the slightly hazy straw colour. Good head. Refreshing. Beautiful beer which I could (and do!) drink over and over. detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Pours a clear and effervescent light copper color, with only a thin topping of large foamy bubbles. No head retention and no lacing. No worries. Tangy aroma, a bit floral with some subdued tart lemon and tangerine.
Tart and dry flavor with citrus, herbal, very ripe (over ripe even) pineapple, and a bit of sharp cheese. Lightish body, very carbonated (champagne-like), and very refreshing after working outside for a couple hours in the summer heat. Tangy lemon, dry French cidre, and sour pineapple in a lingering aftertaste. Urrkhest (16) - HUNGARY - MAY 23, 2014
Bottled 0,375 from a beer shop, Hungary. The original guezue lambic. Golden colour, the smell of the simple oak and the special ,,yeast". A fantastic heritage of the past. Congratulate to Frank Boon, the head of all of this. SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Smells tart and acidic. Taste is tart, subtle wood, acidic, and lightly fruity. Light-bodied with a smooth texture and sharp mouth-carbonation, Boon Oude Geuze finishes with a lingering acidic bite.

Big head, slightly cloudy beautiful gold.. smells like champagne.. taste is wondefully tart and citrusy... very dry and sour.. would be great with desserts,, I love this stuff.. I’ll definitely be getting more gueuze... Sigmund (7390) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 10, 2004
(750 ml "champagne" bottle, vintage 1997-98). Pours with an enormous lasting head. Cloudy golden colour. Lovely aroma of sour fruits, notes of spices and horse stable. Flavour is fruity, sour but not vinegar, a little tart. Quite dry. Reminds me of a brut champagne. Moreish aftertaste. Yummy! DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2008 Iv been gettin a bit gueuze’d at the moment so this was really good. Aroma of dry cider apples and white grapes and dry very dry. Taste is similar with more sourness than expected, very good indeed. RERATING: Same score as before, more hops than i thought possible in gueze but excellent after a 10 hour shift at work. RERATE: Quite a few bottles from the cave. Defo more acidic and sharper than i remember, very dry, like the dryest of all gueuze apart from perhaps it big brother. Monsterous carbonation, but as you drink it it changes into a whole new beast. The hoppiest of the lambics by a long stretch. Awsome stuff! rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2009
Presentation: It was poured from a green corked and caged 335ml bottle into a tulip glass. There is a best before date of 25-04-2027 on the bottle.
Appearance: The body has a hazy golden orange color with lots of beautiful Champaign like carbonation. On top there is a lively, big, fluffy head with a creamy off white color. It fades slowly but hangs on to a thin covering that make some slick lacing on the glass.
Smell: The aroma is interesting and complex. In the nose there is notes of apples, apple cider vinegar, light oak notes, wet wool and rose petals.
Taste/Mouth Feel: Its flavor is just as complex as the aroma. There is a little bit of astringent citrus with hard apple cider notes that give it a nice sharp sour character. Also there are some floral notes, dry hay and light woody oak notes and next to no hops. The finish has a sharp dry sour oak finish. The body is about medium with lively mouth feel and lively active carbonation.
Notes: Outstanding, a very good example of the style.
