2010 Vintage

Bottle opens with a loud pop. Slightly hazy golden color with a large effervescent head that quickly settles to a thin cap. Just a little spotty lacing is left down the glass. Carbonation is very active and almost looks like soda.

Funky barnyard aroma. Horse sweat and earth make up the majority of the aroma.

Sort of a musty mushroom umami flavor with a strong earthy component. Faint fruit and bread notes. Mildly tart. A little alcohol flavor and warmth as this is a large beer for the style.

Light and effervescent body. Nice for a funky tart beer.

A nice affordable, readily available gueze.

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.

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.
