From tasting notes. Pours a fairly clear gold with a quickly receding white foam collar. Barnyard funk, spice and fruit aromas. Big funky fruit flavors that cover the spectrum from unripe to overripe with citrus, grape and spice capped off by a rich, lemony tartness. Light, very fine carbonation and a very refreshing drink.

2011/2012 brewing season

Pours a hazed orange with loads of bubbles racing to the top. Foamy head made of tiny bubbles. Smells of wood, moss, dampness, citrus, yeast/brett, wheat, barley. Excellence balance of sweet and sour. Bone dry finish. Big citrus, yeasty funk, pale malts. Mouthfeel: tiny bubbles and fairly relaxed carbonation. Acid on the tongue is sharp. Excellent classic geuze.

Aroma: Sour and barnyard with a pleasant apple and hints of grapefruit. A horsey, goaty aroma immerges after a sitting for a few minutes.

Appearance: A golden straw color with excellent clarity and aggressive effervescence. A thick, mouse like white head that is very slow to dissipate but never goes away.

Flavor: a nice clean, sharp sour flavor that brings out the hint of grapefruit that’s in the background. A bit of malt and wheat flavor and a hint of sweetness. A long finish on

Mouthfeel: It has a light body and is highly carbonated but it isn’t thin.

Overall Impression:
An outstanding, balanced gueuze that I really enjoy. The funky, heady aroma let you know you in for a real treat and flavors aren’t overly aggressive but a bit of barnyard funk and defiantly sour.

Bottle poured into my Duvel tulip. Poured brilliant dandelion yellow with a slight tangerine hue. Frothy white head that left several patches of lacing. Wonderful aromas of citrus tartness, touch of leather, big earthy tones. Like walking through a deciduous forest after a fresh spring rain and you come upon a rotting log with mushrooms growing on it. Very delicate, yet powerful flavors. Very smooth carbonation giving a lively feel to the light body. Delicious.

A: 375mL bottle displays a touch of mold clinging to the cork just where it meets the glass. Served in a champagne flute, Boon displays exceptional lacing, a honey colored body, and great head retention.

S: Granny Smith apples, fresh lemonade, and lime zest are all noticeable.

T: Super-dry and exceedingly sour, Boon is marked by lemon, black pepper, and just a touch of brioche.

M: The body is incredibly light, clean, and effervescent. I can't get over how many bubbles there are.

D: A great Geuze at a great price! Worth a shot for any fan of sours.
