Boon Oude Geuze VAT 92 Monoblend 16/12/2016 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.
This Oude Geuze is the favorite of our tasting team. It is pleasantly full-bodied, complex and has smoky and spicy notes. These unique flavors come from the oak barrel, formerly used for red wine in France in the Rhône valley. The oak clearly leaves a mark on the general taste image and makes a particularly positive contribution to the Lambic aroma.
