At first I was proud of how I pulled out the cork in one go and then stopped the overflow with the side of my thumb, then I saw the use by date was 2032….. oh this isn’t one of those added odd/champagne yeast beers that are sharp as hell is it?
Well take a guess.
The little number is called Oude Geuze Boon by Brouwerji F.Boon standing at 7% and it IS sour and sharp as smeg. Smelt the champagney, vinegary, yeast aroma that I knew was coming, oh dear.
First sip, ‘Yep that’s sharp’, mear seconds later the aftertaste kicks in, ‘O~kay! Really sharp and sour’. Not a fan. I still drank the rest and I will admit that I got more used to it, theres also critrus in there, though guessing mixed with vinegar.
Long story short, No thank you!
