This one pours a slightly hazy golden yellow color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like heavy duty lemon acidity, very funky fermented peaches and apricots, champagne, white wine, and grassy funk.

This is pretty solid. It's quite tart, feels a bit like a Casey or DeGarde fruited sour, with a deep champagne-like funk, with green apple and a bit of grassiness. The peaches and apricots are golden, juicy, and very, very tart.

This is light bodied, with a high acidity. It's a pretty slow sipper, but it's very delicious.

This is definitely fruited lambic-esque in execution. It's absolutely wonderful.

A loud fizzy head quickly dies to nothing, leaving a lightly hazy gold body when you start off towards the top of the bottle, while getting into the bottom it becomes a foggier orange-amber.

Sour and effervescent, this exhibits white wine and champagne flavors that become more prickly and funkier towards the bottom of the bottle. Tart, bright apricot even glides into citrus before a just dry finish. A little neutral oak and yellow apple develops with some toasted seed and cracker as it warms.
