Boon Oude Geuze stands as a prime representation of the traditional 100% spontaneous fermentation Lambic style. Crafted meticulously by Boon Brewery, this Lambic beer is a blend of 40% unmalted wheat and 60% barley malt, seasoned with aged hops and wild yeasts harvested from their coolship.

The final blend, a gentle average 18-month-old Lambic, is refermented in the bottle, offering a potential storage life of up to 20 years. Brewed in the historic Lembeek, the very village that christened Lambic with its name, this beer has been a recipient of numerous accolades, including Gold awards at the World Beer Championships in 2008 and 2012.

Boon Brewery, nestled in the heart of Belgium, presents its Oude Geuze Boon, a testament to the age-old tradition of Lambic brewing. This beer is a shining example of the Lambic style, which is renowned for its spontaneous fermentation process. Unlike other beers, Lambics are fermented using wild yeasts present in the environment, giving them a distinct and complex flavour profile.

The foundation of Oude Geuze Boon is a blend of 40% unmalted wheat and 60% barley malt. This combination is then seasoned with aged hops, which impart a subtle bitterness to the beer. The wild yeasts, collected from the brewery's coolship, play a pivotal role in the fermentation process. Once brewed, the beer is transferred to oak casks where it matures for 1, 2, or even 3 years. This extended aging process allows the beer to develop its unique sourness and depth of flavour.

Tasting Notes:

  • Appearance: Golden amber with a slight haze, topped with a frothy white head.
  • Aroma: A bouquet of earthy undertones, complemented by hints of citrus and a mild funkiness characteristic of wild yeasts.
  • Flavour: A harmonious blend of tartness and subtle sweetness, with notes of green apple, lemon zest, and a touch of oak.
  • Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a lively carbonation, leading to a dry and refreshing finish.

Boon Brewery, based in Lembeek, has a rich history intertwined with the legacy of Lambic beers. Lembeek, in fact, is the village that lent its name to the Lambic style. The brewery's dedication to preserving traditional brewing methods is evident in every sip of their Oude Geuze. Their commitment to quality has been recognised on numerous occasions, with the beer clinching Gold awards at prestigious events like the World Beer Championships.

The Oude Geuze Boon pairs wonderfully with a variety of dishes. Its tartness cuts through the richness of creamy cheeses, while its effervescence complements spicy foods. For those with a penchant for desserts, it's a delightful accompaniment to fruit tarts or sorbets.

In conclusion, Boon Oude Geuze is more than just a beer; it's a journey through time, celebrating a brewing tradition that has stood the test of centuries. Whether you're a seasoned Lambic lover or a newcomer to the world of sour beers, Oude Geuze Boon promises an unforgettable tasting experience.
