On tap, 2y old lambic. Clear dark golden color with just a few bubbles. Aroma has nice yeast funk, cellar notes, damp wood. Taste is quite bitter, funky, moldy, woody, earthy. Light body, medium plus carbonation. Really rustic lambic with lots of farmhouse and barnyard character.

Clear orange tinged golden body with scant white bubbles.

Dirty musty funk with apple and melon fruitiness with a citric edge.

Citrus fruit acidity. Funk even gets a little old cheesy in the aftertaste.

Flat and dry.

I really dig this. Not a big Boon fan but this was great. I feel like their gueuzes could be better based on this sample of lambic.
