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

Aroma: lots of funk and rather harsh tartness; Appearance: very hazy orange pour with visible particulates; Taste: follows nose with funk flavor I cant quite identify; Palate: medium body with long, funky finish; Overall: a bit overwhelming but good.

Aminatchime (31) - BELGIUM - DEC 29, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2016 Het bier heeft een donker gele kleur en een fijne witte schuimkraag die snel verdwijnt. In de geur overheersen de aardetinten aangevuld met de geur van vers stro. De smaak is fruitig met een mooie zuurheid. Op het einde gaat de fruitigheid over in aardesmaken. In de afdronk vrij droog. Een lekker bier dat zeker en vast het herdrinken waard is.

2013/2014. Smells like cheesy wild yeast. Moderately sour and bone dry. A bit of a sour milk character, nice carbonation, a bit of a white wine oakyness. DAMN tasty!

Kapsel (158) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 6, 2016
Barwa pomarańczowo - bursztynowa, brak piany. W aromacie kwaśno, trochę stajni, trochę owocw. W smaku dość cierpkie, ale za to bardzo orzeźwiające.

Vraiment tres proche de la Mariage parfait sur tous les aspects. du moins sur une comparaison bas sur le souvenir de la MP. A redeguster en parallele dune MP pour voir et apprecier la difference.
