4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reddish peach. Aroma is peppery tart niceness. Taste is delicious balance between spice and sour. Good finish. A very drinkable gueze. Not up there with winter or Armand and Tommy but still great.

Hazy but that’s due to being driven here from Chicago. Burnt orange
Lots of fecal and muddy aroma. Nice funky tartness. Not the best of the Armand’s but very nice

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My 2nd favorite of the 4 with a very herbal floral quality and heavy funky tartness and a creamy rich and smooth texture. A bit of a sipper with the heavy herbal qualities but I really love it.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ CBC Clerkenwell. The pour’s deep amber gold with a medium white head. Strong, expressive nose. Plenty of greek yoghurt. Sharp woody, earthy, barnyard aroma’s. Unwashed dog. Some earl gray tea. Mild tart tang. The taste is similarly brash. Plenty of sharp acid, lemon. Key lime pie sherbet. A bit of sugared wood and marshmallow. Rustic brett goodness in the finish. Light body, full carbonation. Overall, probably the most aggressive of the seasons I’ve tried. Quite cool.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Amber color with rich frothy foam. Dry woody nose with hints of oak, grapefruit and brett. Flavour is dry woody and grapefruit, with notes of goat cheese, ripe green apple and oak. Low acidity here. Musty mouthfeel. Almost puckering mouthfeel. Really complex.

750ml bottle that was a huge gusher. Hazy dark amber with a nice dark biege head. Lots of funk, some farmhouse, somewhat sour, bit of leather, some lemon, musty. Full body, moderate carbonation, sour and tart, becomes quite dry, acidic, long finish, and I think right up there with Lente. What a beer.
