4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled at Shep’s Diaper Party. A big tick here and a good one! Begins with a blast of funk in the mouth that quickly settled and all kinds of interesting stuff emerged. Lemon and grass, citrus, must, and at the finish, salt. Really good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared bottle, RBNAG 2011. Golden colour. Difficult to distinguish this from the Lente, but Zomer is slightly less woody and even more lemony in both aroma and flavour.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a golden/light amber with a huge white head. Slighly hazy. Actually the bottle exploded on me, big gusher. Long lasting foam which leaves lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is similar to Lente ("wet wood, strong funkyness with fruitiness") but with more citrus and vinous notes. Sweet/acidic nose. Taste is rich and again similar to Lente ("strong funkyness again and tartness sorrounded by a sort of yogurt-like sweetness. Huge citrus and lemon peel notes. Grassy notes in the background. Some wood and fruit too"). Differently from Lente, Zomer tastes fresher, with more citrus notes and less dust. The spiciness in the taste is more defined too, with clear notes of nutmeg. Mostly dry finish. Palate is creamy, silky, with good carbonation. Overall, this stands up there with Lente, fantastic blend. The backbone is similar but these are definitely two different beasts and I can’t choose the one I loved the most. Again, glad I had a whole bottle for myself.

Bottle. Mouthwatering geuze aroma. Lemon, vinegar, peaches and apricots. A great blend, worthy of the name, the hype and the price.
