Oude Geuze
BOON
Oude Geuze Boon is a taste classic and has an alcohol volume of 7%. It consists of
90% mellow, 18 month-old lambic; 5% characterful, 3 year-old beer; and 5% very young
lambic, which provides fermentable sugars and viable yeasts. All BOON beers are ma-
tured in oak casks (“foeders”). Blending occurs in a 25,000 litre blending tank, where the
lambic mixture is stored cold. During bottling, the lambic is returned to the fermentation
temperature. Secondary fermentation occurs in an air-conditioned room. After bottle
conditioning, lambic is dubbed “old geuze”, and after several months of fermentation it
obtains its fine flavour.
Taste with care and discover the fruity grapefruit and cheese-like flavour with a touch
of Muscat grapes. Let yourself be pleasantly surprised by the round body. The sour
mellowness and touches of dry oak are characteristic. The colour is light-yellow/amber,
crowned with a firm head. The aftertaste is long, dry and intense.
Old geuze is a Guaranteed Traditional Speciality – recognised throughout Europe.
