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.

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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!!!!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Organic Gueuze at $16 per bottle. I LOVE lambics but this is not a good value at $16 a bottle for fancy carbonated, lemon-grapefruit juice! Citrus aroma. Light golden color. Head non-existant. Nice to taste to say that I did but I would not go out of my way for another. (I’ll stick to the fruited lambics).

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Aroma was pretty bad to me; funky almost. Flavors were pretty much the same; really funky. Just didnt like it. New to the style, but still not liking this too much.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2007 Draft at the Blind Tiger. Aroma kind of like a farmhouse/saison ale, but more earthy and funky. The flavor is sour and medicinal, and lemony. Not my favorite style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazey straw color with light, suspended carbonation. It smells funky and tart. The assertive flavor has sour citrus fruit and some of that lambic funk. The finish is dry and kind of refreshing.
