COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The world's classic Gueuze. A blend of one, two, and three year-old lambics creates a second fermentation in the bottle. The champagne of Belgium. In contrast, the Lou Pepe Gueuze is a blend of three 2-year-old lambics.

Newer vintages are labeled "Organic Gueuze", "100% Lambic Bio" or "Classic Gueuze".

JK (4837) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 17, 2007
Tasted at Cantillon, Brussels. Very sour and yeasty, weird aroma. Barnyard character. Dark yellow color. Very sour flavor, and one of the most flavorful lambics I have tried. Best when fresh.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2013 375ml bottle. (7:3:8:4:15=3.7)
Sharp as a geuze should be. Fills the mouth, tingles. Leaves sharpness, sweetness and light berry hints after (long after) swallowing.
Rerate: What was I thinking? This is sharp and crisp and beautiful. Classic geuze. Adjusted numbers accordingly.
Rerate: 375ml bottle (8+:5-:8:5-:17+=4.3-) Bottled 14Mar2012 One of the best ever. Great balance - beautiful sharpness, but also beautifully mellow - a lovely shiver down the spine on swallowing. This is the world’s best gueuze, of that I’m sure.

MullMan (1099) - New York, USA - MAR 10, 2007
on tap as Cantillon Monks Café Cuvee at Monks in Philly. cloudy dark yellow/golden color with a thin off white head. aroma is funky tart/sour over-ripe lemon. flavor is tart & sour, a little dry white vinegar. a bit lemony and yes, grapefruit juice too. can’t knock this as a session gueuze - who else can do better? hit the spot during dinner to intro some friends to a new style.

KnutAlbert (6344) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 9, 2007
Tasted at the brewery. More sour than bitter, there is a lot of acid in there. Unique in every way. No feeling of malt or hops, cider-like, but no sweetness, either!

I like Cantillon a lot, but this is not my favorite of their products. Perhaps it was just too young ... the typical, sharply acidic aromas ... hazy light orange. A nice flavor, but again, a bit young seeming and a bit too wheaty. A nice, spritzy palate still makes this rather refreshing. A nice product indeed.

cgarvieuk (16277) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 5, 2007
Clowdy orange in colour with a sour nose, With a sharp spicy sourness, suspect its good at what it aimed at just didnt hit the spot for me

TheEpeeist (3462) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2007
Cuvee de Monks. Philly Craft Beer Festival. Small plastic sample cup. Cloudy straw orange. Sour lemon and barnyard. Tart lemon juice and peel. Light carb, medium light body. It’s got the Cantillon bones but give me some more meat.

Diogène (1067) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 1, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2007 Bottle. Hazy orange with almost no head. Aroma is sour, fruity with lemon and grass. Flavour is sour and citrusy with grapefruit and grassy hops and a dry finish. Very long sour aftertaste. A classic gueuze.

faroeviking (10285) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAR 1, 2007
Bottle. Hazy applejujice orangy colour with a short head. Sharp aroma of cherries and oak, which becomes very sout the more you smell to it. Flavour is very sour with citrus and sour apple, little burned wood with intens sour lemon and grape fruit, which turns in to a sharp dryness. Long sour aftertaste. For a pure lambic this kicks butt!!!!

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 26, 2007
(Draught) Dark yellow colored, big white head, which seems rather weird in lambic. Aroma is complex with strong sourness, fruits and lemon, good aroma indeed. Medium bodied. Flavor is also nicely sour with crispy palate and fruits, even some caramel there. Finely balanced and enjoyable, at least when served as this cold.
