Notes: To create Geuze on draft, Brewery Boon had to take the innovative steps to alter the formula creating a new lambic blend. They defined the characteristics of the lambic needed for the kegged Geuze targeting lambic from specific foeders which were best suited to the new specifications. This solution provides a way to keep keg pressure down and still produce a “keg conditioned” Geuze with a full-bodied taste and signature Geuze Boon sour fruitiness. This new formula presents a taste different to that of the bottled Geuze with less carbonation and a different mouth-feel experience.

awesome some of this came to idaho and that i scored it, bitter creek of course, sometimes it seems more accidental than intentional in here, like, they have great beers, but they also have a lot of less great beers, and its often a real head scratching lineup. when they hit though, boy do they, and this is a hit. its a special draft version of this blended lambic, and its very good. golden and clear brassy from the tap, airy white bubbles collect on top but fade quickly, and this isnt all that carbonated, but it still has some life to it. aroma is immediately familiar, very mature to me, sour white wine, stone fruit, and funky cheese even, but super well refined at the same time, lots of earthy minerals, old wheat, oak, dried herbs, its mouthwatering and awesome. the flavor is great too, very much the same, elderflower and aged hop tea-like character, oak and mature wild funk, slight oxidation that flatters the yeasts in here, and the right amount of piquant bacterial tartness without it being too acidic to drink, graphite and iron and iodine as well, green and red apple, an almost cider quality, and very vinous as it warms. really impressive blend here, and it does maintain some soft carbonation even though it doesnt look like it. complex and different, but still obviously boon lambic at its core. a joy to drink, i could have had several!

On tap at Zwanze Day 2019, at Schera's Restaurant in Elkader, IA. Sampled from a stemless wine glass. Hazy pale orange in color, with no head to speak of. First impression was overripe peach and funk. Not much in the way of carbonation. Quite bitter, a little astringent, and a very dry finish. From the description, this doesn't sound like much. For a table beer, though, one could do much worse.

Had it on tap into a snifter. Orangish yellow color with almost no head or lacing. Sour fruit smell and taste. Cinnamon and spice up front followed with tart cherries and dark berries. A refreshing beer, and I enjoyed it.

On tap at Redlight Redlight. Slight haze with a white head. Smells acidic and funky. A little diaper and oak. Tastes sour immediately. Some diaper. Oak, dried grass. Back end is wine and citrus. Medium body. Very dry and pretty tart. Good, though right after the unblended lambic, I believe I prefer that over this.

On-tap @ Monk's Cafe in Philadelphia, PA.

Pale gold and hazy with a small white head. It's got that classic funky aroma mixed with citrus and oak. Flavor is bright citrus fruit and sour. Well balanced and rounded. The sourness is prevalent but doesn't overwhelm. Finishes very dry and tart. Medium bodied.

One of the heavier gueuzes I've had but it still manages to be refreshing. Tasty stuff.
