Boon Oude Geuze VAT 44 Monoblend 31/08/2010 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.
Oude Geuze, from spontaneous fermentation, based on young and old lambic, 90% of which comes from cask 44, an oak barrel of more than 100 years old and with a capacity of 10,300 liters. Fresh citrus scent with a strong touch of “putteke” (typical for lambic and geuze), with a hint of alcohol in the distance. Delicately tart taste, with a little bitterness, very beautifully in harmony with each other. Hints of grapefruit, quite full-bodied and yet dry in the aftertaste and aftertaste.
The lambic for this beer was brewed on December 3 and 4, 2008. On August 31, 2010, exactly 20,520 (matte green) 37.5 cl bottles were bottled, which were presented to the public on April 19, 2013, the official opening of the new Boon brewery in Lembeek. During the open day on April 20, 2013 and Toer de Geuze on April 21, 2013, the public had the opportunity to taste this unique Gueuze.
