Slightly hazy gold pour with firm, dense white head. Nose is white wine, oak, pears, and faint citrus. Brilliant. Tartness is perfect with strong effervescence, the perfect amount of oak, and piquant fruit flavors for days. Absolutely fantastic.

This one has a lot of great attributes that you normally only find in lambic. Most certainly one of the best spontaneously fermented AWA's I've ever had.

White head. Golden orange color.

Funky and sour. Stone fruits and lemon zest. A little medicinal. Fairly dry.

Lighter bodied. Nice carbonation.

Solid sour. Very enjoyable.

What an amazing gueze. lemon flavors (almost like preserved lemons) lingers for days and then the light buttery cracker comes through. what a joy having this on a summer evening (saved a few bottles for that).
