Boon Oude Geuze 750mL into my Rodenbach Grand Cru glass.

Appearance (4/5): Golden-orange and a towering three-finger head of foam. Great head retention; the head reduces to a quarter inch disk. Very nice looking beer.

Smell (4/5): Effervescent and floral smelling, funky and tart. Maybe a little berry flavor rising from glass.

Taste (4.25/5): There's a quick hit of bitterness, but this subsides quickly. Floral and berry flavors predominate. The funk in this mildly tart beer calls to mind the effect of Brettanomyces, though I don't believe geuze features that type of bacteria. The flavor in Boon's Oude Geuze is nice and clean and fruity, and not heavily yeasty.

Mouthfeel (4.5/5): Boon Oude Geuze features an excellent champagne-like mouthfeel that really makes the beer pop and covers up the light body. Excellent stuff that tingles and and accentuates the clean, funky, tart berry fruit flavors. Refreshing! The best aspect of this beer.

Overall (4.25/5): Boon Oude Geuze is a quality beer that is one of the more affordable offerings in the geuze style category. Recommended for summer drinking especially...forget that light lager, wheat beer, session pale ale stuff. Get down with the geuze!

Bottle picked up along my travels.

A - Pours hazy orange with a nice one and a half finger tall white head leaving spotty trails lace down parts of the glass.

S - Smells of cheesy funk, basement must, damp earth, hay, oak and some light citric fruitiness. This is one funky smelling beer.

T - Starts off with the cheesy funk quickly giving way to the must, some barnyard funk, mild citric fruit, oak and the damp earth. Finish is dry, not lingering on the palate for very long. Compared to the nose it is much more balanced, making it surprisingly easy to drink.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Tart, dry feel from start to finish. Not as aggressive as some of the other well known gueuze's are.

O - A pleasant enough gueuze, especially for the money. $10 for a 750ml? It may not be the best out there but I will gladly pay that much for a quality gueuze such as this.
