Oude Gueuze tasting notes
Oude Gueuze is brewed in Lambeek, home of the Lambic style. Boon Brewery only brews Lambics in the 7 coldest months, from early October until April, and then ages them for 1, 2 or 3 years in oak casks. Pours clear dark golden with a fluffy white head. Funky, citric aroma with tones of lemon, gooseberry, leather, and some clear wooden notes. Some yeasty notes, with a bit of orange peel as well. Sweetish sour taste, slightly funky with some yeasty notes. Some wood and vinegar as well, and a clear presence of citrus fruits. This also dominates the dry aftertaste. Thin to medium body, moderately astringent, soft carbonation. Very crisp and not very sharp—easily accessible gueuze.
