4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lemon wedge, sourdough, rather clean gueuze aroma coming out of the flawless deep cloudy gold hued liquid covered by an eternal healthy, dense and uniform white head. Not particularly intense perfume, citrus focused in a rather juicy way. Elegant and focused, but not from memory, perhaps not as complex as others from the series. Salt crackery wheat is fresh and accompanies the lemon focus nicely. Dry all throughout. Minerally lemon finish, brightly acidic yet soft, never feeling agressive, with no edges. Boasting a rare elegance on the palate, its bubbles being sharp and fairly large, but tingling and activating the palate, calling for thirst rather than biting viciously.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 mL bottle. Bottled 4/22/2010. Unknown original review date.
Big head, orange body. Hazy. A little bit of lacing and brief retention.
Smell is mild citrus. Acidic lemon and a medium funk. Less intense than the others.
Taste is really tart. Similar to Zomer in itís acidity. A little vinegar. This one has the herbal notes again, but less so than the Zomer. Puckering finish.
Not as dry, but still quite sour. Less complex. Medium carbonation.
Still a good gueuze, but the least impressive of the four. Feels like the flavors could go wrong at any moment, but it stays the course.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
På Oluthuone Kaisla, Helsinki 21 nov 2015. Med Isabel. Tips från Lenner (tack!). 37 euro och vem hade trott att man skulle få uppleva den här rariteten i Helsinki när den inte längre existerar i hela Belgien.
Originell i doften och inte den typiska 3F-vibben. Den här sticker ut. Perfekt avrundad syra! Citrus och grapefrukt finns där (svagt jordgubbe). Stall, spannmål och vete. Delikat och läskande. Perfekt efter århundradets lyxmiddag på Savoy.

Dark orange color with a solid foam layer. Sour nose with old feet. The taste is funky and spreads a bitterness throughout the whole mouth area. Dry and sour aftertaste.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
With Toni and anstei and co. Hazy orange color with big white head. Hay, flowery, peppery. A bit warming. Ethereal, herbal? Hints of rubber again. Soft foamy mouthfeel, tickly soft carbonation. These 4 seasons were absolutely mind-blowing.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Brad. Thanks!
A: Red color with a huge foamy white head.
N: Peppercorn, apricot, acetone, vinegar, musty attics, hint of cherry, old growth oak, grapefruit and lemon rind.
T: Good and tart. Some light malt. Funky.
M: Light body, foamy carbonation, no alcohol.
O: Really good blend. Complex and well-rounded; lacking in the over the top vinegar pucker in favor of something more sublime.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Hazy darker orange in color with a frothy whitish head. Notes of lemon and funky stable in aroma at first. Tart and sour notes as well. Lemon notes in taste, some funkyness and wheat too. Smooth but tart, with apples later on. Dry and slightly oaky finish with pleasant sour notes. Good, but my least favorite from these four seasons blends.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home. Now 5 year old bottle. Pours a hazy orange colour, with a soapy, big, off-white head. Aroma of oak, forest floor, horse, barnyard, rowanberries, vinegar and dried apricot. The flavour really follows up with more sweet fruit blended with barnyard and forest floor. Has a slick and soft mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A fantastically balanced gueuze with a nice mix between sweet and sour fruit, and feels quite fresh as well.
