Recently stumbled across my notes from The Festival 2012. Lets do this!
A - Poured a nice hazy dark straw hue with a big fluffy two finger head that fades to leave a thin blanket.
S - Nice lemon, citrus notes, subtle funk.
T - Taste is very smooth, balance, tart lemons. Super nice and dry on the finish. Complex.
M - Mouthfeel is solid, very solid. Tart, dry, puckering, incredibly sessionable.
O - Overall a very, very good gueuze. Definitely worth the pour if available on draft.

On tap into a gueuze glass. Reviewed from notes dated May 26, 2013.
A-The beer arrived with a tall, two-finger head of dense, barely-off-white foam. The head had decent retention atop the slightly cloudy, golden liquid.
S-The smell is moderately to intensely sour with big notes of white vinegar, tart/sour apple, and white grape. The funkiness is moderate and gives a slightly barnyard/horse-blanket background to the more dominant sour flavors.
T-The taste follows the smell for the most part. There is a lot of acidic, lactic tartness that pulls at my saliva glands from start to finish. A little bit of doughy bread lies underneath and the aforementioned horse-blanket is also present, but these flavors are mostly overwhelmed by the dry, tart, sour flavors.
M-The feel is medium body with a light hit of assertive, champagne-like carbonation that fades quickly on the palate. The finish is a touch wet and watery.
O-This is a good gueuze, but not my favorite. It doesn't have the wine-like complexity of a Cantillon, for example, but that does not mean it is lacking in flavor. On the contrary, this brew packs plenty of sour punch. I would happily drink more of this if my stomach could handle the acid and I could regularly purchase it in Colorado.

Served on-tap at Monk's Cafe
A - Pours cloudy golden amber with a one finger tall white head leaving spotty trails of lace down the glass.
S - Smells of musty basement funk, light fruitiness, damp earth, apple skins and some light acidic sourness. This draught version has quite a bit more funk than the bottles I have come across.
T - Starts off with the musty funk and fruitiness from the nose but it is much more restrained in the taste while the acidic sourness levels are ramped up a bit. Hints of grass, green apples and some light sweetness round things out. Finish is pretty dry, lingering on the palate long after the finish.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Dry, crisp feel throughout.
O - I liked this version. It has all of the flavors I would expect it to have and it is easy to consume. A little too pricy to have all of the time but every now and then is fine with me.

@ Tasty Beverage
Poured from a pitcher due to its large, ridiculously thick looking, rocky head. It's more of a hazy, slim white ring by the time I get my pour. Hazy golden body. Funky, sour lemon aromas along with barnyard, leather, slight sweatiness, and light oak. Crisp, tart, lemony citrus, earth, a sort of fresh herbal quality, and hay. Acidic, dry, and massively refreshing with a slight lingering bitterness. Delicious...lots of bright, fresh flavor for 4.8%.
