BOON Oude Geuze - 375ml
Brewed in the village of Lembeek, the birthplace of Lambic, Oude Geuze Boon is an exemplary representation of the traditional 100% spontaneous fermentation Lambic style. In adherence to the time-honoured "turbid mash" system, the Boon Brewery exclusively produces this sour beer during the 7 cold months, spanning from early October to April. After aging for 1, 2 or 3 years in oak casks, the resulting blend of Lambic, averaging 18 months old, is bottled and refermented, without any sweetening, filtering or pasteurization. This beer can be aged for up to 20 years. Notably, the World Beer Championships have bestowed upon this beer the following accolades: Gold in 2008, Silver in 2010, and Gold Medal in 2012.

Frank Boon, a pioneer of the authentic lambic and gueuze revival, has owned and operated Boon Brewery since 1975. However, the brewery has its roots in the village of Lembeek dating back to 1680 as a farm-brewery and distillery. In 1860, Louis Paul purchased the brewery to exclusively produce lambic and faro. By 1875, gueuze lambic was being bottled. Pierre Troch bought the brewery in 1898, but it changed hands after the economic crisis of 1927, ultimately being acquired by Joseph De Vits. Joseph's son, Rene De Vits, was highly regarded for producing exceptional soft and fine gueuze lambic. As Rene De Vits had no heirs, he sold the brewery to Frank Boon.
