Delightfully mellow and quite dry lambic served up from the southernmost of the lambic breweries in a 375 ml bottle at everyone's favorite Belgian sports bar Camping in Beersel. Bottle features a green label with a red sash and reads "Oude Boon Geuze L'Ancienne." Pours into a Boon Geuze glass (think basic bar tumbler) a pretty golden orange with a thick and lasting white head. Bottle indicates that this is an 05-06 bottling. We consumed it in August of 2008. Aroma forecasts a very sour beer with loads of lemon-lime citric character and some red fruit along the lines of cranberry sauce or perhaps gooseberry jam. Body is quite sour and slightly bready with a citric hoppy finish. Taste is heavy on the lemon and the horsehair funk. Yum. Corky woodiness, tannic acid, and green grass follow. Solid and enjoyable but not exceptional.

Poured From a 750ml bottle. *This is my first true sour*

Pours a light hazy light orange, almost yellow or golden, with a decent amount of off-white, fluffy head. Very carbonated.

Smells funky at first. I let it sit for a few minutes before smelling again to allow some of the funk to blow off. Smells of hay, barnyard, farty, musty, notes of champagne or white wine barrels.

Tastes very similar to how it smells. SUPER dry. Steals all the moisture in your mouth.

Mouth feel is great. Very light and heavily carbonated, almost like drinking a sparkling white wine.

Overall the beer was quite an experience. At taste and smell I was fearful I wouldn't like it, but like all great things, it grew on me as I sipped it, and maybe as it opened up a bit.
