    I will instantly buy this if I ever see it, as well as any other fruited Tilquin.

    Interestingly this posting is both an ad for the beer and Monk's Cafe at the same time, but I found this little bit interesting: "*Bottles will be for sale to go; not including Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir." - why even include that if the bottles being discussed are not available? Buying bottles at bar prices is ridiculous and I can't imagine who's going to plunk that money down other than the stupidly rich.

    Otherwise, I'll certainly seek these out.

    Monk’s is the first debut of Pinot Gris I’ve seen/read about; hoping availability starts to shine through come next month

    Guessing Tom has some relationship with the brewery.

    Probably cash only and above average price for pours. $15 a pour?

    If I did not have to work and had money to burn i would go have a few.

    Tilquin on draft is very good.

    Enjoy

    My store received Mure A L'ancienne last week and missed out on Pinot Noir.

    I seriously doubt if these will even come close to hitting my distribution network. But if I see them, I will purchase them without hesitation.

    I am relatively new to the style. My local bottle shop had the Oude Gueuze Tilquin à l’Ancienne. I have yet to try it. Any one else?

    Yes.

    Advice: Don't wait. Don't hesitate. Go buy a bottle. Share with a friend you know who likes good beer..

    S
    Sorry, left that part out. I did buy one. Haven’t tried it yet. Thinking I need to go back and buy another. How is the tartness? The only other gueuze I’ve had is Cuvée René. That one was pretty tart for my tastes. I thought it was pretty good, just quite a change of pace for me.

    In my opinion Tilquin is by far the best easily-attainable gueuze and I put it in the same league as most of the high-profile gueuzeries. I think its a lot better than Cuvee Rene, but you’re probably looking at about the same levels of acidity and funk between the two.

    Tilquin has the "benefit" of buying lambic from basically all the major lambic producers and blending those which, IMO, results in a superior product.

    Several were on tap at a local craft beer bar a month or two ago and I feel like a silly for missing them. Not passing on a new-to-me lambic again.

    Been to Monks twice since this was released and it’s not been on tap. I did not look at the bottle list.

    Not saying it should always be on tap , just was excited it might be.
