Damn this baby is funky! I poured the sample into my Samichlaus tulip and it formed a three finger head that didn't fade for at least five minutes. Champagne like bubbles cascade up the glass and they are very small.
Aroma is very nice with a strong horseblanket smell with a good dose of a green apple like sourness. There is a lot going on in the aroma but the individual aromas are hard to pick out as it is very complex.
The taste begins with a quick rush of carbonic acid bite across the tongue as the bubbles rush across. This segues into a tart Green apple taste and the finish is dry and clean with a slight nutty almost creamy mouthfeel as i glide my tongue across my palate after the taste.
Drinkability is very high with this one. If i wasn't such a fan of Cantillion i would say this is an excellent Geuze but there are more extreme versions out there so i will just say this is very good.

First had one of these in Brussells a while back, but can't remember much about it. Somehow ended up with a branded glass brought back. I've had one other geuze since then and haven't been sure this is something I like or not.
However, having spotted a bottle of Boon at the local market this weekend, I decided for one more go at it. This one says 2011, for what that's worth.
I was very impressed in particular with the smell of this beer. One of the nicest smmelling beers I have had. It bubbles like a champagne but still distinctly looks like a beer. A lot of care has gone into the making of this.
Unfortunately the taste does let it down slightly initially. It just doesn't taste as good as it smells. It does improve however after a few mouthfuls. I really feel you need time to adjust to this kind of beer.
Definitly an acquired taste. Having not too long ago discovered this style, I find it to not be very available where I live. I expect to try again at some point when possible.
