Boon, the Lembeek-based lambic brewery, achieved a great result at the 10th Brussels Beer Challenge.


Oude Geuze Black Label Edition No 6 and Young & Wild Fontan-Elle of Lambiek Fabriek shared first place in the old style gueuze lambic category. The Boon Black Label Edition No 6 also scored silver at the 2021 World Beer Awards.

Karel Boon said: “We are delighted with this result. Previous editions of our Oude Geuze Black Label have also won awards at the Brussels Beer Challenge. The very first Black Label took silver in 2016, and the Boon Oude Geuze Black Label Edition No 5 did the same three years ago.

“This gold medal comes at a special moment, because just today we are presenting the Boon Oude Geuze Black Label Edition No 7 at the Horeca Expo Trade Fair, in Ghent.

“The Black Label Edition No 7 is a blend of one-, two-, and three-year-old lambic that has matured in oak casks. For the Black Label series, we always select lambic with a very high degree of final fermentation, which ensures a dry aftertaste.”

The Black Label Edition No 7 was bottled on 8th June, 2021. This sparkling Oude Geuze has a round, mellow taste, with notes of citrus and apricot.
