A big bottle with a big bottle cap. It pours a mostly clear copper with an extremely frothy head. This is one of the most aromatic beers I've ever poured! I can smell it clearly just from the pour, long before I dunk my nose in the glass. It smells of oranges, horse blankets, grass, sugar, and wood. This smells fantastic, I have to say. The taste follows suit and is just wonderfully balanced. It isn't too sweet or too sour, with just enough funk to make you want to put on some disco and get down. There is also a subtle smokiness to the beer that is a nice balance. It's very restrained, which is good for me, I'm not a fan of the smoke, but it adds a nice element to the overall flavor. Really fantastic gueuze, I'd have to say I'd use this as a style example to my friends eager to learn about beer. The mouthfeel is nice and tingly, with a slickness that holds it together. Wow. This may be my favorite gueuze. These guys just really knocked it out of the park. If you're into very strong flavored, very sour beers you'll probably find this a bit bland but I think it perfectly hits the sweet spot between interesting and drinkable. Thumbs WAY up on this one.

Recently stumbled across my notes from The Festival 2012. Lets do this!
A - Poured a light slightly hazy golden hue with a very thin white head that fades to leave light wisps.
S - Nice fruits here, apricot is prominent along with other faint stone fruits. Nice sour notes as well.
T - Taste is similar to the nose. Very tart here with solid oak notes and stone fruits. Quite pleasant.
M - Mouthfeel is very nice. Puckery/flemmy, very nice carbonation.
O - Overall, a solid gueuze. Like the interplay of oak and fruit here.

On-tap at Torst in Brooklyn.
Beer is cloudy amber in colour. Very small white head, fades quickly. A touch of lace.
Nice fruit nose, apricot quite strongly, some peach, and other fruits that I cannot identify. A bit of tartness.
Taste is tart, with apricot and other light fruit. A bit of a cherry flavour, and a smoky, woody aftertaste. Some lemon and a touch of banana.
Light to medium bodied, moderately carbonated. Very astringent and puckery.
Overall, quite good. The smoked element was a nice touch.
