Frank Boon, the founder of our brewery, passes the torch to his sons Jos and Karel. He can look back with pride on his career as a lambic brewer. For this occasion, Frank created a special blend, Apogee, with lambic beer from the oldest and the newest foeder. Frank’s pioneering role in putting traditional lambic beers back on the map is invaluable.
With Apogee, the brewery celebrates Frank Boon’s brewing career on the one hand, and the transfer of Brouwerij Boon to the next generation, Jos and Karel Boon, on the other.
Boon Oude Geuze Apogee was bottled on April 29, 2019 and is a blend of 1, 2 and 3 year old lambic. Mainly 2-year-old lambic was used from our newest foeder (N°83), along with 3-year-old lambic from the oldest foeder (N°79).
The result is a round and flavorfully complex beer. The Geuze has notes of citrus, green apple, wood, funk and an elegant texture.
In total, about 22,500 bottles were filled and only 90 made their way to Australia. Each bottle is numbered. You will find the bottle number on the back of the bottle.
Bottled on April 29, 2019.
