Since 1978, when he acquired the brewery from René De Vits, BOON has been owned and run by Frank Boon, a pioneer of the authentic lambic and geuze revival. However, the first signs of this brewery date back to 1680, as a farmhouse-brewery in the village of Lembeek.
Today, with more than 2.5M litres of lambic, Brouwerij BOON boasts at present, the largest stock of lambic in oak barrels. The BOON family are currently building a 4th foedermagazjin on the right bank of the Senne.
Note that each foeder has its own individual character and climate of bacteria and yeast. This affects and influences the flavour and characteristics of the beer. Each blend is unique and you will note the brewing season labelling on every bottle.

Oude Geuze Boon Black Label N°1 was released in 2015 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Brouwerij BOON.
This Oude Geuze is characterised by its dry finish, and of its resounding, balanced acidity and lively sparkle.
The Black Label Series is bottled in 750ml bottles, blending one, two and three year old Lambic oak casks.
Black Label N°2 was bottled in 2016. In comparison with the first edition, in which the alcohol content was 7%, the 2nd edition Black Label just under 6.4%.
In November 2016 Black Label Edition N°3 was bottled, to be released in May 2017. (July for Australia)
Thanks to years of experience and the new dedicated lambic producing brewery built in 2013, BOON are able to push the boundaries of traditional lambic beers. This experience and these tools allow them to continue and to complete new Geuze with both a great complexity and balance.
It allows us to explore new possibilities. Such a dry finish and resounding, balanced complexity was a real challenge. But the result is a pleasant, complex and well balanced Oude Geuze.
Expect to see a bright golden yellow with white foam.

Oude Geuze Boon VAT N°44 was the first mono blend bottled by Brouwerij Boon.
A mono blend is an Oude Geuze in which 90% old lambiek is used from the same foeder (cask). A small amount of young lambic is added in this mono blend for the bottle fermentation that gives beer its sparkle, flexibility and complexity.
By using a single cask of lambic the character of that particular cask can be reflected. Thus, reference to the number in the name of the beer – for example VAT N°109 was aged in an old cognac cask made by Drexler in 1910. The cask was skived prior to being filled. Both a sweetness and woody flavour could be noted in the resulting geuze.
This is dependent on how long the Lambic has matured in the foeder, the nature of the foeder itself, and how long the VAT has been left to ferment in the bottle.
The colour typically ranges from a dark gold to golden.
Serving suggestion: 15 ° C in a tulip glass. Store in a cool, dark place.Enquire
