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

375ml bottle, unknown vintage. This seems to be the older label art and does not mention a vintage. The cork is marked sb40. I have a feeling this is an old one. Cracked for breakfast during Philly Beer Week 2011!

A: Standard golden gueuze color. This one pours a beautiful LARGE fluffy white head.

S: Some serious mustiness on this one. I am getting strong brett funk, dustiness, green apple, lemon zest, light vinegar, and a bit of cheesiness.

T: funk and earthy flavors are dominant. Strong earthy, cheesy flavors. The acidity is well balanced and has pleasant citrus and apple flavors. This may be the best brett flavors I have ever had in a gueuze.

M: Great effervescent carbonation. I noticed that the body is a bit heavier than I am used to. Not necessarily a bad thing. Like a great full bodied chardonay.

O: This beer embodied the musty, earthy, aged characteristics sought out in gueuzes. This contrasts well with the qualities of a Drie Fonteinen Gueuze of which were much fresher and more citrus focused. It would be very interesting to blend the two together!

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.
