Bottle shared at the brewery. 2016 version. The beer starts spicy with lots of fruit. Moderate sourness, some grain. Very deep and complex, round and refreshing.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2017 Bottle. Goosberries, a bit vinegar, fruity aroma, a bit leather, funky. Taste rather surprising, dry, tart, with medium sourness and medium hoppy bitterness. Hops gave that beer uniqe character. beer-yum (1836) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 23, 2017
Restrained tart aroma in a hazy gold pour. Laid back sour balance is both full and tasty = one of the best variations of the style. ebone1988 (2041) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2017

On tap at Mikeller Bar SF Balanced, sour and slightly bitter at the end, Leaves the mouth dry
Cloudy apricot apprarance with a rim of white Aroma was muddled, not as direct up front with the wet grass funk as the Geuze. Dry white wine taste. For $14 I expected more ineedbeer (2210) - Oakland, California, USA - SEP 23, 2017
On tap at Russian River for Zwanze Day.
Aroma is full of earthy, herbal hop notes. Light oak with hints of lemon. A touch of oak and musk.
Pours a hazy, slightly dull, golden orange with a small, thick, white head that recedes somewhat quickly to the edges where it lingers. No lacing and faint legs.
Flavor is somewhat acidic with light lemon notes. Hop flavor is fairly pronounced with herbal, earthy notes. Somewhat floral with some lemon verbana and yarrow. Light oak and musk notes.
Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a nice beer. I really like the hop profile and the way it interacts with the lambic. It compliments the musk and acidic notes.
