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.

Cidery tart aroma. Huge head with a sparkling orange appearance. Sour tart mellowed grapefruit apple flavor that is far more toned down than Cantillion products. Dry sour finish.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2017 One for the initiated. A quite startling experience at first a lambic sour. Very farmyard aroma and an unapologetically dry drop. A beer well suited to a dish of moules frites or just fish and chips. With fried foods it goes very well. The missus hated it. I enjoyed it and would drink again. Unique.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2017 Dejlig gueuze fra Boon. Den perfekte indgang til denne type øl. Ikke for vovet, alligevel for man det hele med.

Lekki funk, kwasek, winogrona w aromacie. Umiarkowanie kwasne, ziola, bretty, troche siana, nuty winne. Bardzo lekkie i niesamowicie pijalne.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2017 Mooi goudblond bier. Fijne witte schuimkraag. Citrus, appeltjes, cider, beetje hooi. Volle smaak, lange fris-zure afdronk. Perfecte instap-geuze. Zéér mooi bier.

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

metalspice (1002) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2017
Lett tåkete, strågult med lavt skum. Grønne epler, aprikos og stall i duft og smak. Behagelig surhet, frisk.

kaserov (798) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 7, 2017
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 !
