750 ml bottle at the brewery shared with BigMomma and SeaBass. Golden color, large fluffy white head that rapidly disappears. Aroma of peach and banana. Taste is sour peach, bread dough. Obviously too early to drink this one, but I just could not wait. Bought a few bottles to lay down. This will be an outstanding brew!

BeerandBlues2 (9358) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 18, 2011
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.

TwoSipDip (8894) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Hazy yellow appearance with a nice, white head. Very earthy, barnyard fruity, tangy, floral yeasty, lightly minty/herbal aroma. Very inviting aroma. Somewhat musty, farmhouse, refreshing and dry, earthy/floral, light clementine/lemon, yeasty flavor with a dry finish. Flavorful and super easy to drink. Moderately tart. Very refreshing. Would be an awesome session, summer ale if it was more available and cheaper.
