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.

SlovakSniper (3219) - Out Of This World, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 7, 2012
Zomer a une robe orangée et développe un simple anneau de mousse. Au nez, Zomer n’y va pas de main morte. Parmi les microbes et les bonnes bactéries, on note la présence d’une causticité à toute épreuve qui flirte avec des parfums de vieux fromage et d’étonnantes vapeurs de fruits plastifiés. Au goût, Zomer impressionne les papilles avec son acidité fruitée et ses flaveurs du terroir. En bouche, le corps de Zomer est de moyenne densité et ses bulles sont assez actives. En finale, Zomer est une dominatrice qui fouette les tissus de ma langue. (Embouteillée le 26/03/2010 et évolutive jusqu’en mars 2020)

Pours a hazy and amber beer with a white head. The aroma is tart and sulphur. The flavor follows the nose with additional fruit and grapefruit. The palate is bitterness. Overall a really good beer.

from Erzbierschof - cloudy dark orange beer under a long lasting creamy beige foam; beautiful lacework; aroma of barnyard, cheese and hay; medium- to full-bodied, some acidity, very dry; long fizzy and fruity, dusty and cheesy finish - superb although it’s not quite zomer yet
