Had on tap as "Cantillon Monk’s Café Gueuze". From the tap poured a hazy straw color, with a tart flavor and finish.

[email protected], Brussels. Slight hazy golden with a small egg white head. Musty yet floral and citric aroma. The flavour is fruity, dry, sour and earthy.

750ml bottle. Pours a glowing golden orange with a tiny off white ring. Nose was full of Brett with some tart citrus as well. Slight tartness in the initial taste with some great apple and tart citrus flavors. Finishes kind of of sweet and sour and drying on the palate.

labeled "Cantillon Monk’s Café Gueuze". 5/27/09 notes: on tap, Monk’s Café in Philly. This was the real winner tonight. This beer was refreshing, challenging and tasty . . . what more could you want from a beer? Appears dark gold with a small white head. Aroma is initially plasticky sour, but soon turns towards vinegar and tart citrus peel. Flavor has a well-rounded sourness, with green orange citrus, funk, and grapefruit. “Fruit” is evident without ever being “fruity-sweet,” if that even makes sense. Perhaps its more the peel that lends flavor characteristics. This is delicious.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2015 Bottle at Blind Tiger. First gueuze i have tried. was quite tart but a nice change to all of the stouts and barrel aged stouts of the night. Fixing this travesty.

On tap at Monk’s in Philly, MrBendo was brave enough to let me swig on his. Murky gold with a white head. This baby is sweet and tart citrus, horseblanket and assorted barnyardy notes. Not over the top sour, comes off more tart. Gets rather dry late. Niiiice...

BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2009
Brewed in Belgium....... Courtesy of AFI96, thanks Waylo. Pours a lite orange color with a super thin white head. Aroma of orange peels, citrus, straw and sour notes. The taste is of earth, straw, citrus and a fabulous sour kick. The mouthfeel is very thin in body and finishes with a nice dry sourness. I am also very satisfied with this gueuze from Cantillon.

375 ml bottle shared with BeerGestapo. Clear golden pour with a thin and quickly diminishing head. Smells of barnyard, lemon, straw, leather, and glue. The flavor had a good deal of woodiness to it with some funk, lemon, straw, and pencil shavings. Creates a good deal of dryness at the back of the mouth. Not as sour as some gueuzes. Very tasty.

mikkopen (1197) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2009
375 ml bottle. Slightly hazy golden yellow colour, thin and quickly disappearing white head. The aroma is very interesting: sour, fruity, with some vinegar, notes of apples and a strong presence of citrus. The flavour is aggressively sour and vinegar-like. Like in the aroma, citrus fruits, especially lemon, are strongly present in the flavour, along with other sour and fermented fruits. The flavour stays lingering in the mouth for quite a while after swallowing. My first experience of a "real" lambic, and a very positive one, at that.

MatSciGuy (924) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2009
UPDATED: APR 18, 2010 [Bottle] Pours a hazy gold with a small, effervescent white head. Aroma suggests quite a bit more tartness and acidity than the 3F version. There is slight funkiness, somewhat diminished from the 3F. Plenty of sharp citrusy notes remain. Flavor has a ton of lactic sourness, light to moderate brett expression, medium to full mouthfeel, prickly acidity, and a touch of citrus fruits. If I could meld Cantillon’s sourness with 3F’s funkiness, I would be a very happy camper, but both beers are fantastic in their own right.
