Pours clear and ranges from orange to copper to Amber in color depending upon the amount of liquid in the glass. Has a finger of stubborn just off white head that is maintained by the active carbonation. Aroma has green apple, a touch of lemon, and a healthy dose of hay and funk. Taste starts sour with green apple and lemon then turns towards the funk which isn't like anything I can recall having before, its not really my thing. Medium bodied with highly effervescent carbonation. Overall this was an uneven experience for me, I liked the look, aroma and mouthfeel but the flavors lost me. The light hay funk from the aroma changed a bit in the taste. After sitting with this for a little while I think my palate acclimated and I found myself no longer actively disliking this beer.

2012 bottle. Golden pour, moderate carbonation, head is lacking. Aroma also is faint - has that classic barnyard / tannin / oak smell but it is light & lacks layers. Carbonated but not tingly, hits strong off the bat with vinegary tannins, sour malt wort which is a little bland, shoeleather, more malt presence near the end before a lactic end. Needs some more delicate flavors to balance out those horse saddle notes - not bad but can't hold up to the best.

A: Pours a dark hazed golden/orange color. At first a two finger white head forms and gently recedes to a ring that stick throughout. Not much lace is left behind, but I always love the color for traditional Geuze.
S: The nose is so fragrant, I can smell this from across the room. Acidic, tart and overripe apple skins, musty basement funk. That turns lightly floral, maybe even grapefruit? Amazing.
T: Acidic, tart apple skins. Funky, basement like, even slightly cheesy. Fruit and grapefruit like. Tons of tart and funky but at the same time balanced as nothing is over done.
M/O: A light body, but so crisp and effervescent. Almost a Champagne carbonation. Quick, but lingering and finishes smooth and beautifully dry. Lots going on here, but still really easy to drink and enjoy. While the acidity does come into play, and might not be for everyone, overall something really balanced for the style.

A great example of the style, and something I will continue to get as I just found the Boon Geuze's sitting around. Up there with Hanssens Gueze for the best shelf examples of the style and will be glad to pick these up instead of traveling and standing in line for whatever over hyped American brewery trying to imitate this.

I love me a beer that somehow manages to taste like sweatsocks and taste amazing at the same time.

2013 bottle.

This one pours a dark-ish golden orange, slight little bit of amber, with a small head.

This smells like green apple, red wine, plasticky funk, white wine, and lemon candy.

This has a very weird but tasty funk, it's almost plasticky, and dirty, with spritzy lemony funk as well, with some green apple, and both red and white wine. I get some pickles, olives and old basement, too. This is incredibly funky, and gets more drinkable as it warms.

This light bodied, almost thin, with a good level of drinkability.

This was done side by side with regular Boon OG, and this lost out- but it's still a cool beer to try, nonetheless. A bit more acidity would help it.
