TheAlum (6956) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Sampled at the CCB/RateBeer/Pre-Hunah Tasting (Tampa, FL). Pours a well hazed amber hue, darker haziness, frothy tannish head dies to a good film, laces ok. Aromas are lemony, bready, straw and lemon. Crab apple, lactic elements. Some bready malts, a touch deadened. Some straw. Gentle oak. Initial is a touch sweeter, well balanced, with oak, bready, straw, good lemon and yogurt. Gentle rind. Middle is a touch sweet, straw, yogurt, and oak. Nice sourness sustains, bretty backend and oak, straw. Touches of flavorful fruit, straw, florals. A bit more muted. A tasty Gueuze, solid all around. A touch behind Lente. Nice fruit. Tasty.

Strykzone (6750) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2015
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.

Sigmund (6745) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2011
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.

vtafro (6731) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Bottle. Gusher. Hazy golden pour with bit of tan head. Tart aroma, with funky undertones. Flavor has tart fruit and Brett tones, more acetic acid. Nice.

teorn88 (6726) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2011
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.

KnutAlbert (6713) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 30, 2014
Bottle. Mouthwatering geuze aroma. Lemon, vinegar, peaches and apricots. A great blend, worthy of the name, the hype and the price.

ekstedt (6526) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2012
UPDATED: APR 6, 2013 Bottle (75 cl), courtesy of _angst_. Very much like the lente version, perhaps a tad more acidity.
