Bottle supplied by myself. The pour’s deep hazy orange with a medium pillowy white head. Nice brett through the nose. Old cobweb-covered wood. A bit of marshmallow. Light white grape. Slightly brash. Notes of granny smith apple. The taste has similarly musty flavors. Like eating an attic. Rich brett with bright shocks of tart lemon. Key lime pie. Such expressive wild yeast. Nice floral finish. Mild creamy sweetness. Light body. Wonderful vitality. Moderate carbonation. Overall, fantastic. RichTheVillan (8240) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2015

How: Bottle.teorn88 (8066) - Rimini, ITALY - OCT 17, 2011
Where: Akkurat, Stockholm.
Appearance: Clear dark golden colour with a thick white head.
Aroma: Acidic, tart, sour, berries, fruit, funk.
Body: Medium body, low carbonation.
Flavour: Acidic, tart, fruit, berries, sour, funk, some barnyard.
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. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011

Bottle thanks to someone at Woodshop 6. Pours with a hazy golden yellow hue and a small white head that does leave some great lacing. The aroma is absolutely incredible. Funk, brett, light oak notes, lactic yogurt, peaches, stone fruits and apple esters. Light woody notes, white wine. Incredibly complex! Some grapefruit like acidic notes. Flavors are also amazingly complex and amazingly balanced. White wine, restrained funk, light oak notes, tons of lactic acid sourness. Lively on the palate, dry, and puckering.
Quite possibly the best Gueuze that I have ever had the opportunity of trying. PhillyCraft (7916) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle compliments of Frank split with him and Bill. Pours a hazy, murky glowing orange with medium white head and good sporadic lacing. Aromas and taste of peachy wood, 3 font funk, sour lemons, oak, horseblanket and all types of citrus skins. So sour and full flavored for a relatively young blend. Long lasting and complex acidic finish. The most sour of the armand series. Awesome Sigmund (7910) - 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. Sledutah (7834) - Utah, USA - AUG 15, 2011
