Poured into a snifter. Nice, hazy light yellow color with a head that fizzed away immediately.
Smell was fruity, citrusy sourness, with a hint of vinegar.
Not too familiar with many geueze lambics, but if the flavor characteristics for this style are funky and sour, then they hit the mark. This is a very tart, dry beer that is also very refreshing. Almost like a sour grapefruit without the sweet. No hop bitterness whatsoever. Definitely has that aged, oaky dry finish. Will seek out more of this style, but sparingly. Can get pretty pricey for just one bottle

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.
