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.

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.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

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.

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.

I'm surprised this beer hasn't been reviewed before. I think it's outstanding. But a warning.... it's a pretty uncompromising gueuze style, and it definately will NOT appeal to drinkers who have not already developed a taste for gueuze via a more approachable route. So if you don't already enjoy Belle Vue or Morte Subite, then come back when you do! Right now it's replaced Duvel as my favourite Belgian tipple. Here in Antwerpen the Berenbak only sells it in 750cc bottles, and that's the review sample here. (It also comes in smaller ones.) Anyway, the top comes off this big bottle and straight away you notice the foam building up, with evidence of solid yeast. Pop some into the beaker and you get a foamy drink which soon settles down to a nice pale colour. It's not perfectly clear by any means, but hell it's a live one, what do you expect? The aroma next.... hard to describe this. Vaguely citrus. Cooking apples. Then the flavour... this stuff is really quite sharp. Did I really pay money for this? I'd better pretend to like it... Once the initial shock has passed you realise you want more. And more. It's quite easy to drink a whole big bottle all by yourself, in fact yesterday afternoon I got through 2 of them. And being only around 7% it's not such a big deal. Highly reccommended.
