Aroma: Sour and barnyard with a pleasant apple and hints of grapefruit. A horsey, goaty aroma immerges after a sitting for a few minutes.

Appearance: A golden straw color with excellent clarity and aggressive effervescence. A thick, mouse like white head that is very slow to dissipate but never goes away.

Flavor: a nice clean, sharp sour flavor that brings out the hint of grapefruit that’s in the background. A bit of malt and wheat flavor and a hint of sweetness. A long finish on

Mouthfeel: It has a light body and is highly carbonated but it isn’t thin.

Overall Impression:
An outstanding, balanced gueuze that I really enjoy. The funky, heady aroma let you know you in for a real treat and flavors aren’t overly aggressive but a bit of barnyard funk and defiantly sour.

Bottle poured into my Duvel tulip. Poured brilliant dandelion yellow with a slight tangerine hue. Frothy white head that left several patches of lacing. Wonderful aromas of citrus tartness, touch of leather, big earthy tones. Like walking through a deciduous forest after a fresh spring rain and you come upon a rotting log with mushrooms growing on it. Very delicate, yet powerful flavors. Very smooth carbonation giving a lively feel to the light body. Delicious.

A: 375mL bottle displays a touch of mold clinging to the cork just where it meets the glass. Served in a champagne flute, Boon displays exceptional lacing, a honey colored body, and great head retention.

S: Granny Smith apples, fresh lemonade, and lime zest are all noticeable.

T: Super-dry and exceedingly sour, Boon is marked by lemon, black pepper, and just a touch of brioche.

M: The body is incredibly light, clean, and effervescent. I can't get over how many bubbles there are.

D: A great Geuze at a great price! Worth a shot for any fan of sours.

Big and Belgian, that's how I like them. Not in a gay way. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Just sayin'. It pours cloudy gold with a soapy white head that shows no sign of letting up before I'm ready to go further. It smells of oranges, peppermint, hay, and a barn. A particular one, not just any one. But I will keep the location secret. Just to be that way. The taste is sour cherries, grass, and a nice bready finish. This is a phenomenally balanced flavor. Not too sour, not too sweet, not too dry. It is the goldilocks of geuze. If they start putting that on the label, I get credit. The mouthfeel is soft, slightly tingly, and light. Overall, I really feel this is a fantastic beer. It may be the best I've had. Nice, nice job.
