Beer Review: Oude Gueze Boon

Reviewing the Oude Gueze Boon from Brouwerij Boon.
Score: 85

Appearance: Pours a translucent, hazy golden orange color with four-plus fingers of soapy head. Pretty solid lacing. 3/5

Smell: Sour fruit. Candied raspberries and a little candied cherry. Some lemon. Slightly skunky (it did come in a green bottle...). 3.5/5

Taste: Lemons. Raspberry warhead candy. A little sour cherry. 4/5

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied, high carbonation. Crisp, slightly pungent, and sweet. A little puckering, but not nearly as much as some more intense sour-style beers. 3.75/5

Overall: A decent sour, but it's nothing special.

Recommendation: Why not just stick with the 3F Oude Gueze? Casual beer drinkers would enjoy this "non-beer" style. My girlfriend, who likes Cerise and ciders, would probably like this.

Pairings: An earthy, feta-walnut salad with a vinaigrette dressing.

Cost: $6.99 for a 12.7 oz bottle.
