Boon Oude Geuze VAT 108 Monoblend 20/12/2016 37.5cl
All oak barrels in the Boon brewery have their own history and are characterized by unique microflora of wild yeasts. The bottles of Oude Geuze “VAT” are a combination of one specific wooden barrel (mono) and a minimal percentage of young Lambic (blend), which starts the refermentation in the bottle. The use of Lambic from one specific oak barrel (such barrels are also called “casks”) creates geuzes with very idiosyncratic characteristics: wine-like, whiskey-like, bone-dry or very tender. The number on the bottle always refers to the barrel number.
The very wine-like accents in this Oude Geuze are combined with a clear ‘old beer’ character, which ensures a firm & robust taste with unmistakable, but not overwhelming volatile acidity. This 1935 barrel comes from another brewery, where the beers contain volatile acids. This cask enriches the character of all our Geuz mixes.
