Lambiek Boon is the origin of the Boon beers of spontaneous fermentation. This Lambiek has aged in oak casks for two years and has a delicate taste.
The Palm website describes Boon's brewing process as in line with traditional lambiek brewing processes, though it notes the following additional specific details about Boon's processes:
The brewing water has a rather high mineral content
40% of the starch is from unmalted wheat
The lambic has an acidity is from pH 3.2 to 3.6
Lambic carbon dioxide content is between 0.5 CO2/l to 2.0 g CO2/l
The beer is stored primarily in large wooden barrels, called foeders. Brouwerij Boon has a park of more than 100 horizontal casks averaging 8,000 litres capacity each. Only old oak barrels are used, as new oak contains too many tannins
When Boon's beers are bottled, they are marked with a best by date that is 20 years after the bottling date.
For Boon's non-traditional lambic products, Boon reportedly spontaneously ferments approximately 40% of the wort and then blends it back in with the remaining wort.
