4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted from a corked and caged 750mL bottle at a tasting in early 2011. Pours hazy burnt orange with an average white head that leaves just a thin collar of lace. The nose is dark for a gueze with berry fruit, lemon and vinegar acid, and just touches of malt and vinegar oak. The flavor is more intensely sour than I expected given the nose, with some white wine vinegar, plenty of lemon, and a bit of berry fruit, vanilla, and light malt. The body is medium and tannic with average carbonation and a long tannic and dark, sour finish.
Shared bottle. Pours a hazy golden red with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, fruit, and barnyard. Taste is lemon, apples. stone fruit, barnyard, spice, and wood. Superb. ClarkVV (6700) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 18, 2017
Bottle at Akkurat with Nelson, 11/29/16.gephross100 (943) - Bellaire, Texas, USA - JAN 13, 2017
Very mild gusher, with a wonderful brassy-golden body, sparklingly-clear and with even a strong head for a while. Looks perfect.
The nose smells of Autumn leaves, dusty cabins, wooded vales and foxholes. No, it doesn’t smell like any of that, but it is less bright and citrusy than the Summer and Spring. Definitely smells musty, with lots of wool blanket, light brett and chestnuts roasting (kidding again). No alcohol and moderate brett tones with a delightfully sniffable, strong, well-aged nose.
In the mouth, it’s perfectly attenuated, very dry, very crisp and with lip-smacking brett and light lactic acids on the finish. Lots of musty, dusty, cellar quality and even notes of bready malts and hints of slightly caramelized sugar. Very elegant, though all of them are and different in its own right. I could certainly see this one being the Autumn in a blind tasting (would love to do that).
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2017 Bottle thanks to Craig. Pours murky orangish brown color. Fresh squeezed lemons. Slightly acetic sourness. Light mouthfeel strong carbonation. ThirstyBird (2925) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2016
Many thanks to J for sharing! Pours a hazy, apricot color with a light tan head. The smell is tart fruit, barnyard, some green apples, pepper. The taste is toasted malt, pepper, mild barnyard ending crisp & mildly sour. Elegant and slightly over average carbonation level. Very nice! SirLimpsalot (4220) - SWEDEN - DEC 8, 2016
@ Eddan 16-12-3: lite svavel i början men sen kommer det en fin kryddighet som är ganska len men elegant.

Bottle from Etre Gourmet, bought in 2011. Hazy dark golden with a white head. This was a pleasant one, not extremely sour and tart but balanced and really drinkable. Apples, some citrus, hay, wood and grapes. The finish was quite dry.

Cloudy light amber color, dull hue, darker than others of the series, with compact creamy head. The Brett aroma is very strong, cellar smell. Very mineral beer, salty, very strong Brett flavor, cellar; smooth mouthfeel; some lemony touch in the final, and strong final astringency.
Compared to the others, side to side, it has higher acidity, and more straight forward Gueuze character.
Hazy amber color, sub carbonated, small head. Pervasive cellar aroma, Bretts, sour, bitter oranges, hazelnuts, sweat, some animal character. The mouthfeel is quite smooth and round for a Gueuze, yet clearly dry, with lemon juice, bitter oranges, astringent, wood. Rather long final.
Bottle at WTWBA. Golden pour. Awesome funky lemon aroma. Taste follows, nice tart funky lemon, great balance. Complex and amazing. fiery_1 (969) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 1, 2016
750ml bottle @ Alex’s. Pours a clear dark copper with a dense white lively head. Nose has tons of lemon peel, tart, slight sourness, a hint of minerals. Flavour is sour, hints of citrus, and sweet fruits. Lente is winning in my opinion, but enjoying this slighly more than Zomer.
