Thanks, Jason! Poured into Darkness snifter. A - Pours a tangerine orange-color, cream head frothy, thick collar, thin cap, sticky lacing. S - Sour citrus funk, barnyard, tangerines. The citrus notes are excellent and well done (I’m not surprised). T - Smooth sour/tart, citrus, tangerines, acedic, oak. This one doesn’t taste as "vintage" as the Lente, but that’s not a knock, just a note of something different between the two. M - Body is light, crisp and refreshing, spritzy carb with a dry finish. O - Another home run by Armand! That said I think I prefer Lente to the Zomer by a touch. There’s enough differences in the two beers to easily to pick them out. A must-try!

bottle shared by bleeng at the August Houston RB tasting. Pours a cloudy amber with a nice, off-white head which produced good lacing. Slight gusher. Nose is a smooth, musty funk. Taste is of crisp, tart fruit and funk. Mouthfeel is tart and well carbonated. In my opinion, while this was good, it could use some more age on it to become great. In current form, I liked the Lente better.

theisti (3404) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - SEP 20, 2011
750 ml bottle courtesy of mreusch, tasted along with the Lente. The pour is a haze yellow golden, with a white head that falls quick with some nice lacing. The aroma has grass up front, along with citrus lemon, barnyard funk and a bit less of the house character than the Lente. Nicely melded aromas. The taste is grass, lemon citrus and barnyard fink of the nose. The lemon citrus also has a bright sweetness, like a light honey. The interplay of the tart citrus peel and the sweetness was nice. The palate is light bodied with bright carbonation, and a nice citrus tart bite to the finish. Very clean all around, this seemed more "put together" than the Lente. Thanks again for sharing these bottles Matt.

Bottle from Beer Planet. Pours rather clear with a huge head. Well balanced tartness and sweetness. Thirstquenching and drinkable but a bit acidic in the long run.

hirigalzkar (2461) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2011
Bottle. Pours dark orange with a big white head. Beautiful! The aroma has got lots of fresh sour green apples and freshly cut grass notes. Not at all dusty. Young and fresh taste. Apples. A bit dry. Some cellar notes in the aftertaste. Overall: Maybe a little too fresh at this time. But I bet this will turn out to be a world class gueuze after a couple of years in the cellar.

Beer4000 (4950) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2012
750 ml bottle @ RBNAG-11. Hazy orange body with a big off-white head. Nice fruity and acidic aroma, but milder than Lente. Flavor is tart and fruity acidic with plenty of barnyard funk, dryer than Lente. Quite similar to Lente, but with less aroma and a dryer flavor it becomes a bit less balanced and more challenging. Still very great stuff here.
