Poured a clear golden color with a large frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy soft malt and wild yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour flavor with a medium to heavy sour & sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer for style.

Bottle, Zwanze Day at Churchkey. Pours hazy gold with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is funky, sour grapes and apples, loads of phenols mixing it up, and light hay malt. The aroma is really complex. Flavor is sour grapes, light apple and pear notes, phenols and funky yeast dancing around, and straw and hay malt with a dry finish. Acidity is rather balanced in this beer. Light body, low warmth and carbonation.
