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.

KajII (801) - 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

Bottle from awesome shop in Belgium. Nothing as velvety and honey like as your cantillon and fonteinen but still a very enjoyable geuze.

2017.12.25: Bottle from 2015. Very tasteful gueuze with medium-high sourness, and light bitter- and sweetness. Well-balanced! Semi-clear golden appearance.

W aromacie wyraźnie czuć charakter dzikich drożdży, stajni, delikatne akcenty drewna. W smaku lekkie, wytrawne, wyraźne nuty dzikusów, delikatna kwaskowość, trochę cierpkości, taniniczności.

From a 375 ml bottle dated 2013/2014. Pours a hazy orange gold with an off white head. Aromas of barnyard and bandaid, with some damp basements thrown in for good measure. Seriously, though, this is one tasty lambic.

Straw colour with hazy appearance. Very high carbonation like sparking beverage. Acid and sour wine tunes in aroma. There was also very palable mint tune. Sour apples, sour cider in taste. Light body and thin texture.

Barwa żółta, mocno zamglone, obręcz białej piany. W zapachu winne, wioskowe nuty. W smaku wioskowo, kwaśno, winnie. Wysycenie wysokie.

W aromacie nuty wody z kiszonych ogórków. Barwa żółta, opalizujące, piany w zasadzie brak. W smaku podobnie jak zapachu. Nie zostanę fanem tego stylu.

Bottle. Hazy amber-caramel color. Fizzy. Heavy funk and stone fruit aroma with a bit of something sweet that I can’t quite put my finger on. Very fizzy, dry and crisp. Funky, fruity and tart. A yeast bomb. Nice.
