Have been holding this baby for almost a year. Now Its time to pop it. Pouring a pretty lively hazy orange with a potent White head. Nice looking. The nose is awsome with mild hints of grapes, straw and some notes of wet soil and ethel flower. The taste is more agressive sourwise compared to the lente but still very lovely balanced. Its has a freshly sour grapely taste with a buttery touch to it. The finish is mild and smooth like hell with a lively mouthfeel. Another homerun from Armand.

Bottle at home shared with friends, courtesy of Dave. Thanks Man!. Poured a hazy orange with a small white head and no lacing. Smell is tart peaches, lemon peel, funky, basement, dust, and horse blanket. Very dusty taste, definitely the most funk of all of the seasons, urine, biscuit, grass, and brett. Light body with high carbonation. My least favorite of the series for sure, but that isn’t saying much, as they are all world class beers. cubs (10714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle @ Stephen’s house, picked up in Belgium. Hazy, dark orange appearance with an off white head. Tangy, a touch toasty, lemon, tangerine citrusy, quite tart and funky, earthy aroma. Quite sour, lemon juicy, funky, somewhat floral, dusty flavor. Cantillon-like sourness. My least favorite of the series. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Bottle at craft beer co. Delicious, copper pour , shimmery. Funky horse blanket nose. Unbelievably drinkable, funky and tart but very approachable. Complex and delicate. Wow pushkinwow (2895) - Ottawa, CANADA - JUL 30, 2012
750ml bottle shared with some boys from Hamilton. Dark amber with a huge frothy off white head that foams up and gradually settles to only a semi-giant head. Smells dry and musty, surprising amount of malt / very malt forward, lemon zest, and a very light funk. Very very dry on the palate, moderate carbonation, bit of chardonnay and candied sugar; mild sweet with vinegar, long finish. A lot of interesting things going on however for me it just didn’t all blend together well - will just have to open up another bottle in a bit and see how things develop.

Bottle @ Sour & Bitter. Hazy yellow body with a large head. Aroma is tart, sugar, fruit. Flavor is tart, spices, yeast. phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - JUL 20, 2012
Bottle thanks to Koelschtrinker - thanks! Pours copper with a nice white head. Aroma is immensely funky - huge funk and barnyard in here. Something here reminds me of tires (yes, rubber tires). Some fruitiness, especially pineapple, grapefruit and a hint of banana sweetness. Once I got over the burnt rubber note, it was huge on brettanomyces (very complex profile) and musty old oak, and very well smelling. (15 minutes it is very well smelling, very fruity and complex, and the off rubber aroma is completely gone). The taste is completely free of off-flavours. Very tart, much like the other in the series, lots of brett, more lacto than i remember from the others. Thus, very fruity, citrus, grapefruit and pineapples, of course in a sour and unripe sense. Clear note of sour orange juice. Better tasting than smelling. I am not totally psyched, but it is smooth, balanced yet full of character in the taste - though, I have to say, the most underwhelming beer in this series. MOLA_DK (394) - DENMARK - JUL 20, 2012
Bottle at home. Pours hazy orange with a frothy head. Sour fruity aroma. Pineapple, lemon and funk in the nose. Dry, sour taste, quite fruity. Not a geuze for the untrained pallet. Super complex.

750 c&c shared by Marcus. Cork hit the ceiling hard. Lots of creamy foam. Pours hazy copper with a 4 finger creamy yellow-white head. The aroma is citric/barnyard sour. Near med body. Flavor is intense sour barnyard. Yet it also seems mellow and smooth. Amazing. marcus (10668) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Bottle from Beer Planet, Brussels. This is an acitve brew - the cork bounced off the ceiling when I opened it. It pours with a massive off-white head that takes a while to subside into liquid. There is an intense sour fruit aroma. The flavor is quite complex for a gueuze. Lots of citrus and barnyard elements, but is still very smooth. An excellent job of blending.
