Boon Oude Geuze

Boon Oude Geuze 2007-08 bottle, 7%, 37.5cl.
I was really looking forward to this, such an appealing looking bottle, threatening a great experience with that cork just bursting to be popped.

Geuze is a mixture of old and young Lambic beers, the label says 2007-08 so is that the bottling date? or is that the date of the production of the 'old' lambic? The expiry date is 18/8/2030 but i understand these bottles usually have a long date

Really good carbonation, a yellow gold with big fluffy and bubbly head. Aroma is some crisp sharp apples and lime, and the taste is nice and tart but not teeth enemal stripping though. Lovely sharpness, so crisp with its light palate, then hits you with a sourness that is dry and musky.
