L - hazy golden body, fluffy 2-finger head that quickly dissipates
S - mineral, soapy, a faint barnyard funk, grass, citrus rind,
T - mineral, lemon, pith, oak, apricot, pool water
F - lively, tannic, dry finish
O - feel is the biggest knock against this beer for me, just a bit on the wrong side of light and fluffy.

Bottled & 2012 vintage
Burnished gold body with quickly retreating white head that ends up clinging tiny white bubbles on the rim of the glass
Big sour aroma, cider vinegar and apricot
Aroma is the flavour with some aspirin and white spirit
Easy drinking and well carbonated and solid
Impressive

2011 vintage. Pours a lovely pale gold...a bit deeper in color than expected, with a nice medium size creamy head that leaves a film on top and some streaks of lacing. Nose is lemon curd, sweet tarts candy, and a bit of old book smell. Light/bright overall and of course a sour note. The taste is not as sour as the nose suggests. Mild sour, creamy, citrus, grainy. Simple but we'll done. Mouthfeel is medium-light with bright carbonation that still feels soft in the mouth. Overall, very good, and a better geuze than expected from Boon. Second glass was even better.

2009 Vintage - The first round of this to make it to the area in 2014 was all 2009 vintage. It was also incredibly cheap ($6-8 for the 375) which makes me believe there were some warehoused cases that got discovered after the great sour awakening.

Appearance: Is this what we come to these beers for?
Smell: a faint leather background, with lemons, and flower buds, with that odd aroma described as cherry's when its found in red wine.
Taste: Harmonious. Lemon funky, tart, savory leather backnotes, white winey fruit and tannin character, with a hints of medicinal clove and cork. An almost wheaty sweet tang. Good stuff, heartier perhaps than cantillon, but still hangs together incredibly well.
Feel: crisp aftertaste that leaves an efficient, slightly sulfurous lemon funk behind. Fizzy still, biting cheek and tongue. Just heavy enough to push you away from chugging it like the asshole you are.

Accessible masterwork. Sleeper. Not your daddies Gueze. All of the above. Good beer.
