No more posting this year, but loads of goodies in the pipeline.  We shall begin the year with some rare EuroJazz from the vault of SunBop, Paul D, Onxidlib and the Boogieman himself.

And take a good decision for 2013 ...
... drink OUDE GUEUZE

See you in January


  1. Best wishes for the New Year boogieman

  2. Dear Boogieman - my best wishes for New Year!
    ....will have a look for OUDE GUEUZE....

  3. Boogie on, man! Not entirely sure about your choices there. Some will find them an acquired taste. I have a friend who is 100 per cent convinced. But I do enjoy my Westmalles, Chimays, Rocheforts and Orvals!

    1. I do agree that gueuze is very much an acquired taste. For a start it doesn't even taste like beer, it's probably closer to the taste of old cider. But I got used to it from an early age. My grand-father used to keep gueuze and kriek in his "cave" (and some excellent bottles of wine too). As a kid I was allowed to drink a small glass of kriek or gueuze with grenadine when the grown ups had their Sunday aperitif. As I grew up, so did the glass.

  4. Just saw they sell Oude Geuze by Frank Boon in my local supermarket. Since I'm a big fan of Belgium beer I'll give it a try for sure. Thanks for the pointer & Happy New Year!

  5. Bit of a late comment I'm afraid, just thought I'd mention I went to last the Cantillon Public Brewing Day, had a great time and came away with numerous bottles very hard to find in the UK, like Fou'Foune & Rose de Gambrinus. I still have some left, but I'll have to go and stock up again soon! Can't beat a cool Oude Geuze in this hot weather!
