Brouwerij BoonOude Geuze Boon Black Label
Lembeek, Belgium Style: Gueuze Lambic ABV: 7%
A masterful, mouthwatering gueuze, up there with some of the most intriguing examples from 3 Fonteinen or Cantillon in terms of mouthfeel. Vibrant funk, whiff of saltiness, cheese, sharp lemon—all the glorious and expected stuff—but executed smoothly and flawlessly. A nice combo of juicy lemon, bright salinity, hints of grapefruit pith. … Lasting, subtle bitterness. Ideal texture.
