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.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - FEB 24, 2013
375ml Bottle. The pour was a sparkling clear pale yellow with a huge (3-4 finger) white pillowy head, that receded slowly and lasted throughout with excellent sticky foamy lacing. The aroma was of light grain and straw malts and a funky Belgian yeast with notes of citrus (lemon), a dusty wood odor, white grapes, apple, apricot and a slight tartness. The taste was a tad sweet with a good strong grainy yeast presence and a touch of apricot and apple throughout, finishing boldly sour with a hint of white grapes and a light wine presence right at the end. The flavor was short in duration, with the tart fruity taste fading away off the taste buds almost immediately after the swallow. Mouthfeel was light in body with a thin dry texture and a very lively carbonation. Overall I perceived this to be a very good tasting Geuze, with a strong fruity presence which only accented the moderate winey sourness, giving this brew a very enjoyable and easy drinkability... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

Poncjusz (103) - POLAND - APR 21, 2017
Pomarańcz, miedź. Piana średnia, opada do dywaniku, oblepia szkło. Aromat skrzany, kwasowości, nieco derki, trochę skarpet, trochę starych chmieli, beczka, dzikie drożdże... jak w geuze :) Po czasie czuć też coś w rodzaju prażonego słonecznika. Smak skrzany, kwaśny, wytrawny, średnio złożony, ziołowy, drewno i tanina. Po jakimś czasie rzuca się na myśl gorzka skrka grejpfrut. Dość dużo doznań smakowych i zapachowych, Wyraźnie ale delikatnie i z wyczuciem.

w aromacie i smaku zielone jablko, konska derka, goryczka niska i krotka, szybko ucieka ze szklanki.

Kleurplaatje (168) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2017
Vintage 2010/2011. Pours clear dark golden with clear vivid carbo bubbles and a lively white head. Murky, citric aroma with some clear wooden notes. Slight yeasty note, with a bit of orange peel as well. Sweetish sour taste, with a minor yeasty undertone. Some wood and vinegar as well, and a clear presence of citrus fruits. This also dominates the dry aftertaste. A gueuze which is fairly accessible.
