Boon Oude Geuze

LOOK: Hazed deep golden color, soapy white froth.
SMELL: Funky bugs, straw, acidic lemon, sour white grape. Barnyard.
TASTE: Nice tart sour, low hops, touch of wheat, and a good presence of oak. Straw, acidic, musty. A snap of bitterness upfront gives way to a healthy tartness. Well tempered, medium sour. Drinks easily though it is best to sip and savor the taste.
FEEL: Medium bodied, but quite full. Strong flavor and with an appetizingly dry finish.
OVERALL: A nice blended Lambic, making for a fine Oude Geuze. Bright flavors, and a bit young. Best by date 02-02-2031. Bottle stated this vintage was 7.0% abv. (632 characters)

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! (1,212 characters)

I picked this bottle up somewhere in brussels -enjoyed chilled in a tulip from the 375ml.

The color is golden with lightly hazed look visibly carbonated with a 2 1/2 finger depth of thick off white head with fine bead and streamers of lace hold. The smell is nicely citrus/zesty lemon oriented with hint of wood and light sweet odor with very gentle tropical and floral essence along with a light odor of alcohol alongside the wild yeast smell. The feel is very sour with medium high carbonation and light tartness that leads to a mouth puckering and mildly alcoholic feel with dry texture in the finish w/ residual sourness lingering on the palate.

The taste is tart from the onset -yeast forward with acidic almost more than any readily available gueuze I can remember in Belgium or the U.S. for that matter. The taste of the wood with the sour yeast brings a sort of tannic element to the light dry body with an alcohol flavor that is noticeable and becomes almost spicy but not sharp to the extent of not being enjoyable. Enjoyment and flavor converge this is stronger than your average Gueuze but to me does not lack flavor in any sense it is perhaps not as subtle as some but every bit as good and worth seeking out..perhaps a good candidate for cellaring based on the slightly higher abv -either way it is drinkable and very flavorful. (1,347 characters)

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. (884 characters)

This pours a very pale amber color that is clear with a bubbly, white head. The aroma is a mixture of sweetness mixed with complex yeast strains. The taste is mixture of sweet, tart, and acidic. There is some oak in the flavor but I expected a little more for being aged 2 years in oak. Finishes with a lingering sweet/tart after taste. Not too bad, but there are certainly other geuze beers on the market that I like better. (425 characters)

Thanks to Kevin for sharing the 750ml. Best by date is 2-2-2031.

Into a wine glass, classy. Pours a cloudy pale orange, a thick white head settles to about a finger in size. Not a lot of lace, but otherwise excellent appearance.

Nice, if not super potent, scent. Good amount of tart lemony notes, some light farm and funk.

Taste is an improvement, very solid. Notes of lemon and grapefruit with a good amount of tartness. Yeast, slight funky farm and earthiness.

Great mouthfeel that's slightly on the foamy side, perfect carbonation. Very drinkable.

Quite a great beer and underrated I think. Good balance. Not groundbreaking, but definitely one of the best bargain gueuzes out there, usually easy to find as well. (720 characters)

[Suggested Glassware: Flute]

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...

This is one of those beers that I'm really glad I've had, but probably won't drink again. I love the sour beers, and I love some funky barnyard notes. But, I also need that balanced with a little bit of fruit. This beer is as barnyard as I've ever tasted, without any fruit or floral notes. Exceptional in what it is, but not for me. (333 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A - poured nice cloudy golden color with one finger white head, immediate lacing as it reduced, creamy but with some big bubbles.

S - fruit, brett, sour, funky. from my small experience with sours, smells on par. certainly enticing.

T - I smelled brett it in the nose, but it is in the background... where it needs to be. Up front is a musty, soapy, very light sour tasting cereal malt, finish is nice and clean sour. Funky throughout, barnyard, wet, a little dirty. Lingering taste of citrus fruit, is very refreshing.

M - medium body, lots of carbonation, finishes very dry. The taste slows this brew down more than the mouthfeel, real sipper.

O - Very good. I'm a sour Noob, but I love this stuff. Very slow sipping beer to enjoy and contemplate. Great accompaniment to reading or intellectual conversation. (818 characters)

The beer pours a murky yellow with a huge fluffy white head with varying size bubbles. Lacing was far too slick to really be of note. The beer’s body is cloudy and opaque, and I did find some chunks in the end of the beer (obviously…). On the nose the beer smells spritsy and fierce with lemon grass funk and cherry fruit leather playing with each other in complex layers. As it warms there is more barnyard in the smell with “horse blanket” notes alongside grassier whiffs. On the tongue, the beer tastes funky and fresh, with earthy cheese notes playing beside lemon grass citrus and some lovely barnyard funk which builds further in the mouth as the beer warms. The beer opens with sour lemon, moving into the hugely complex middle with barnyard, light fruit leather cherry, and big lemon grass citrus notes. The barnyard closes with lovely earthy cheese notes, while the aftertaste of sour lemon grass lingers in the mouth for quite a while. This beer tastes properly complex for a gueuze. On the mouth, the beer feels light and spritsy, with a little effervescence coming from the fierce carbonation. The mouth is left rather clean, with the faintest touch of dryness on the back of the tongue. Overall, this is another great gueuze. It takes time for it to warm into big complex flavors, but it brings some lovely citrus notes, and great sprits to the beer. It’s not my favorite in the style, but it is far from my least favorite. I’ll be aging a bottle for a year or so to see how the funk develops in the bottle, as I feel it could grow a little in complexity. This is a great complex beer for a good price point. Try this beer. (1,648 characters)

From Leura Cellars. BB 2030...

Pours cloudy gold. Two finger fluffy head hangs around then fades to a film.

Aromas are funky sherbet a bit of barnyard. Mrs heygeebee notes vomit.... I disagree.

Taste is sour but balanced and very refreshing. Hint of vinegar. Sherbet and a little lemon and yeast. Stops short of puckering.

Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, zingy and zesty. Delightful.

Good well made beer. Not a sour expert yet, nor complete convert but this is good. (472 characters)

Got this at the Mitra down the road. Put it up against eight other gueuze as part of an educational evening of gueuze and football re-runs.

From a 37,5cl corked and caged bottle into a snifter
Vintage: 2009-2010
Best by 28 September 2031

APPEARANCE: Pours a 1+ finger, medium looking, fluffy white head with good retention. Clear gamboge orande with higher levels of carbonation evident. Head fades to a thick cap and remains in tact as the glass empties.

SMELL: Different than the standard gueuze. Probably due to the added sweetness. Some dark grapes and caramel notes, along some funky aromas, lactic acid, as well as notes of lemon and orange esters.

TASTE: Musty and mouldy up front, with light caramel and dark grape sweetness, as well as some lactic acid at the swallow. Tart lemon sourness with musty, funky dank notes linger on the palate. Old cheese and fungus as well. Quite musty and mouldy here, with a strange sweetness as well. An odd combination.

PALATE: Medium body with lower levels of carbonation. A little watery on the palate, but goes down fine and finishes slightly dry on the palate.

OVERALL: Not for me. This one is too musty and funky for my tastes, and the added sweetness doesn't seem to help the situation either. This one is everywhere around here, so it's a bit of a shame that I like their Mariage Parfait exponentially better. Win some and lose some I guess. (1,402 characters)

375ml bottle, label states 2009-10 brewing season, best before 2032 is 20 years after bottling, so pretty much a new gueuze

A- Slighlty hazy golden colour, head is huge for the style (about two fingers) and also quite persistent, leaving nice lacing as well.

S- Acidic (more on the tart than on the lactic side) is of course the first thing you notice, but it's definitely a slight, delicate acidity. Then a nice mix of various notes: citrus, herbal, spices (pepper?), a musty/yeasty feel. Nice

T- Pretty much what the smell suggested. Delicate tartness, definitely citric (expecially lemon), spiciness bringing life on the tongue, also a bit earthy/musty. Dry aftertaste leaves you longing for another sip. Sure not an in your face gueuze, but a very enjoyable one.

M- Medium to light body, average carbonation, decently smooth on the palate, more lively on the tongue where the spices also kick in

O- As already said, a very enjoyable gueuze. Not super complex, just a perfectly balanced and refreshing example of the style. Nice as an entrypoint to the world of lambic (1,076 characters)

Unleashed the cage the the cork shot off like a gun followed by gushing beer and of course the cleanup...
Once I managed to get some beer into my glass it appeared a hazy, golden straw yellow with a dense foamy white head. The quarter inch of fluffy head sits comfortably throughout drinking and leaves some streaky lacing behind (as expected). However, the nose is sweeter than expected and reminiscent of white grapes and fruity yeast esters. The nose is also tart and slightly reminiscent of stomach acid. In comparison to a cantillon, this geuze is on the mild side. It drinks very easily with a bit of dank culture that resides on my palate long after each sip. It's semi-dry, vinous and the alcohol is quite well masked. Not much to complain about with this beer, except it needs more funk and sourness. (810 characters)

Brewing season 2006 - 2007. Best before 24 - 09 - 2029. Batch L9119.

Appearance: Very hazy, glossy gold color with high perceived effervescence, small fizzy white head and no lacing. Also of note: the generous amount of yeast floating around.

Smell: Medium in intensity. Lactic, yeasty, sour cherry, vinegary, a bit oaky, lemony, slightly vegetable and theres also horsey / leather notes.

Taste: Medium in intensity. Tangy, citric, yeasty. Muddy and underwhelming.

Palate: Medium to medium low carbonation. Medium body. Medium to medium high acidity. Alcohol plays well into the whole and the palate is pleasant.

Overall: Sufferable. I realize that the blending process makes it alot harder to make something palatable, but (and with that in mind) it's still a beer that lacks the complexity and elegance necessary to break into the 4 mark. (845 characters)

375mL bottle poured into a Lindeman's flute. Best by 23-09-2030. 7% ABV.

Appearance: Poured slowly to leave the sediment in. Bright dark gold with a persistent off-white rocky foam on top. No lacing.

Smell: Musty, hint of tart apple and maybe some berry in there towards the back.

Taste: Very tart and sour, but not mouth-puckeringly sour. Granny smith tart apple, oak, a hint of very tart cherry in here as well. Some tart lemon comes out as well as the beer warms up. Definitely better as it warms up.

Mouthfeel: Highly carbonated, but not fizzy. Spicy on the tongue, airy. Just a bit of something sticking to the teeth at the end. Very dry.

Overall / Drinkability: I have heard that this beer is an acquired taste, and I don't think I've fully acquired it yet, but for style, it is a very intense lambic and is very sour and tart. Still, an interesting experience but I think one per night is enough. Perhaps another time I'll revisit this style and see if I feel differently about it. (997 characters)

2011 bottle. Poured from a small bottle into a Duvel snifter. Beautiful crystal-clear gold color with fairly low carbonation. On the nose, I'm getting sour apples and white wine and a little bit of wet, grassy kind of aroma. There is also a little bit of that funky, wet sock kind of smell.

Light body and firm mouthfeel. Nondescript sour flavors and notes of under-ripe apples, fresh lemon, and grapes predominate. I also detect something like thyme. The acidity is not vinegary or over-bearing. It's pleasant, not too mouth-drying, and somewhat appetizing. There is a faint oakiness on the finish.

Flavor-wise, I enjoyed this beer and think it is excellent. My main gripe with it is the low carbonation. I think higher carbonation would open up the palate a bit more and complement the flavor nicely. Moreover, the sourness seems a bit one-dimensional (fruit). I don't have a lot of experience with this style, but I would like to try a gueuze with a bit more complexity. (975 characters)

Bottle says 20/01/2031, which suggests to me that it was bottled January 2011. Tasted 1 July 2012, reviewed from notes.

Pours a golden orangey-yellow color. Very clear, with about 1 finger of white head, all big bubbles. Tons of carbonation visible in the glass.

Smell is a musty, yeasty aroma, with a little bit of sour and a light sweet kick. Better than the taste, but didn't wow me.

Taste has a touch of lemony sour, but a whole lot of bitter and straw-like flavors, without the complexity and sour I'm looking for. Finish is mildly bitter.

Mouthfeel is good. Light-bodied, plenty of carbonation.

An okay gueuze, but not my favorite. Generally dull, without much sour or depth, and dominated by the wrong flavors, IMO. (727 characters)

375ml corked and caged bottle served in my ST tulip. 24-06-2030 indicated on the back label. Pours a light, golden-orange hue with a slightly hazy clarity and a three inch bright white head that sizzles and pops and quickly disperses within seconds on the pour. Head eventually settles into a consistent 1/8th inch cap. Some lacing is present, but there's no adhesion. Nose reveals citrus zest, vinegar notes, cork and tart light stone fruit. Taste follows nose; however, considerably less tart and sour than suggested by the nose. There's also a slight cardboard taste in the flavor profile. Mouthfeel is light in body with a lively, palate cleansing carbonation as well as a slight acidity that lightly stimulates the salivary glands. Overall, a decent and accessible gueuze, but nothing overly spectacular. I'd go with Lindemans Gueuze Cuvée René or Hanssens Oude Gueuze over this one. (890 characters)

This beer pours a clear, bubbly yellow with a thick head. The aroma is of lemons with a hint of sour grapes and a yeast mustiness. The flavor is purely sour grapes and nothing else. It's mouthfeel is light and fizzy, champagne like. Boon Oude Geuze is a good example of the style, just not for me. Not recommended! (314 characters)

Bottle. Best by September 16, 2030. Served at around 45F. My first Gueuze.

Pours hazy gold with an active three finger white head that dissipates quickly, but does hold a nice small cap and leaves some lacing behind.

Aroma is lemon zest/citrus, apples, hay, funk, dried grass, cheese?, hints of bubblegum. Good to very good strength.

Flavor features tart/sour lemon, acidic notes, apple cider notes, hay/grass/earth, along with some funk. I’m too much a novice in sours to pick apart the nuances of ’da funk’ but it’s there and for me, I find it to be fairly sour and pretty tasty. At times it does come across a bit watery (at least for what I expect in the style).

Mouthfeel is light/medium bodied, a bit sticky, scrubbing, active carbonation.

So...my first Gueuze...’bout damned time. I’ve had a few other Sours, but not a lot to compare to score-wise. I hear this is supposed to be a more mid-range Gueuze, yet I found this to be rather tart and sour and pretty good overall. Definitely has me wanting to try others in the style. (1,050 characters)

Poured in to a Corsendonk glass. Best Before 9/23/2030 bottle date.

The beer was a cloudy and translucent golden orange color. A big two finger fluffy head formed, but loudly fizzled out down in to a very thing layer of bubbles that settled on to the beer and formed a ring around the glass.

Tart and musty barnyard funky. Apples, wood, and grass. Very acidic.

Apples and lemon/citrus. Some oakiness. Reminds me of a dry white wine. Nice sour finish.

Incredibly dry and almost tannic. Very carbonated. Medium-light body and the sour finish lingered for a few moments before being whisped away.

Perfect amount of sourness and funk and clean finish. A very nice beer that I can't wait to have agains. (703 characters)

Bottle from West Lakeview Liquors in Chicago, IL
Bottled on 16/9/2010, best by 16/9/2030
Poured into a Drie Fonteinen gueuze glass

Boon's Oude Geuze is a solid gueuze that features mid-level sourness well-balanced by malt sweetness and oak barrel characters. While not massive in its depth or intenseness of sourness, this is still a very worthwhile drink and a good introduction to the style.

Pours a fairly huge head, almost more reminiscent of a hefeweizen than a gueuze. Bubbles are of small to medium sized and just off-white in color. Head retention is fairly good, with the fluffy-looking head declining to a 0.5cm cap atop the beer throughout the session. Some lacing is left, mostly small spots or thin waves that gradually recede back into the cap. Body is a transparent orange-gold color away from the light, with a pale yellow-orange color when held to a bulb. Carbonation seems to be quite vigorous and is easily observed.

Aroma is of oak barrels, lemon wedges, cut green apple, and some light malt sweetness. Fairly open and pleasant, not an amazing amount of complexity, but still good and enjoyable gueuze aromas.
Adding the sediment to the beer imparts a bit of savory funkiness to the mix, but decreases the intensity of the tart scents.

Taste opens with gentle sweetness and a very mild saltiness on the tip of the tongue. Mild levels of tart lemon and green apple then develop on the front of the palate with a bit of soured malt behind them. By mid-palate, tartness has increased to an intensity above mild, around medium. Fairly sour on the sides of the tongue by mid-palate. Prominent flavors midway through are above-mild lemon and green apple mixed with white wine vinegar, which are tempered by sweet malt and oak flavors. Back of palate picks up semi-sweet malts, semi-tart lemon and green apple, and a bit of floral essences that also waft into the nasal cavity. Closes on a brief flash of tartness, yielding an aftertaste is of residual lemon tartness with some modest malt sweetness.
Adding the sediment seems to increase the intensity of the flavors by a bit.

Beer is medium bodied, with moderate carbonation, foaming this up across the palate and presenting a generally smooth, flowing mouthfeel. Unless the sediment is added, beer is somewhat watery around the edges. Surprisingly high in ethanol given the lightness and slight wateriness of the beer. Close is substantially dry with a light stickiness, both from residual sugars. (2,468 characters)

Best before 9-16-2030. Served from bottle into a Drie Fonteinen ‘3 Fountain’ gueuze glass. Poured a hazy golden yellow with a fizzy one finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, fruit, tart, sour, and funk. The flavor was of sweet malt, fruit, tart, sour, funk, orange rine, citrus, and wood. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. All of the right flavors and aromas for this style were present in this one. This made it a really nice example of the style and definitely kept me on my toes while exploring this one. The mouthfeel on this one was pretty nice as it was a little more bubbly than some others in this style I’ve had and definitely took it up a notch. Definitely an absolute must try for any true fan of the style. (890 characters)
