2007 vintage. Poured from a bottle into a Duvel tulip. The pour is clear, dark gold with a large rocky-looking sudsy head that dissipates quickly. Lots of sour notes on the nose. Apple cider vinegar and cedar predominate. Upon swirling, some funky barnyard notes start to rise.

The beer has a light body and very dry, tart flavor. Lots of acidity here, but still pleasant to drink. The acidity is pretty well-balanced by the alcohol. The beer doesn't taste boozy at all, but the alcohol smooths out the flavors and provide additional body. Up front, the beer has a nice, crisp wheat-like graininess, but the fruit and wine-like sour notes march in and combine with it very well. Tart, dry finish leaves you salivating and ready for more.

Overall, a nice gueuze, but not the best. The flavor is very pleasant and well-balanced, but others seem to have more complexity than this one. I may want to visit this one again after I've had a few more. This is still a new style to me and I'm trying to decide what I do and do not like.

2010 bottle

Clear golden body with a creamy white head that sticks around.

Aroma is musty, leafy, and a slight cheese. More funk than fruit.

This seems to rely more on the funk. Not much tartness going on. Wood and musty funkiness. Green grape and citric fruit.

Ample prickly carbonation but not like Vat 44. The body is almost medium.

Definitely the best Boon geuze I've had.

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

375 mL bottle, served in a tulip.

A- Pours with a quarter inch of whitish head that goes settles to a cap within five minutes. The body is a very murky yellow-orange.

S- The nose is lightly funky and tart.

T- Very earthy character, but sour and crisp as well. Not overbearingly tart. A light oakiness balances things out.

M- Medium body and bubbly, crisp carbonation.

O- Not my go-to style by any means, but this was a tasty brew to mix things up.
