750ml bottle with foil and C&C. Poured into a Cantillon stemmed glass 5/19/2014.

Review #600.

A- hazy brown-orange body, much like a lighter apple cider. Effervescent two finger white head with great retention, nice film and some lacing.

S- Very intense, funk-forward nose. Peppercorns, lemon rind, grape skin, musty hay, leather, tangerines, lactic acid. So much going on. Impressive.

F- Bold and aggressive. Citrus, lemon zest, apple skin, musty hay, black pepper, lots and lots of funk that dominates the palate. Just enough yogurt lacto in the dregs to make me smile. A vinous finish reminds me of a nice champagne.

M- Medium bodied, perfectly carbonated and not too fizzy; nicely effervescent and drinks with a real pop! Funky, musty and lemony finish.

O- I see why many argue that this is the best of the 4. I liked Zomer's subtlety that didn't sacrifice much intensity, but this is right in your face intense and incredibly complex. A lambic for the ages.

Re-review: Drank this alongside the 3 other Seasons today 3/30/2015 in a 3F stemmed glass. Basically, this is equal to Zomer, but it is still more intense and in your face than Zomer. A bit less complexity than Zomer, but easily more interesting than Winter. That being said, Zomer is going to run the distance in a year from now. This is easily a top 3 gueuze for me.
