750 ml bottle, from box set 187/500, bottle says Lot: 26/03/2010 Best Before 03/2020. Poured into a tulip glass. Me and agold drank this side by side with a bottle of Lente.
A- Even carefully removing the cork produces some gushing out the top of the bottle (sorry dude), pours a golden orange color, noticeably hazier than Lente, topped with several inches of big fluffy white head that leaves lots of lacing.
S- Very funky, earthy aroma, hay, nice citrus aroma as well, lemon and orange, the aroma is brighter than Lente's mushroom/dark damp forest aroma.
T- Starts with a nice, bracing but not overwhelming tartness, citrus notes of lemon and orange as well as some apple, the citrus is a bit zestier and juicier than the Lente. Flavor has a really great funk, hay, with some nice wood notes as well. As it warms the funk becomes more powerful and reveals some sulfur notes.
M- Medium to light bodied, has an incredibly smooth, effervescent feel, dry finish. Really outstanding.
O- Another amazing gueuze from this series, I'm honestly not sure I could pick a favorite based on flavor alone, although I'd lean by a hair towards Lente. Both beers are extremely complex and are really fun to drink, also so far both seem to do a great job of expressing the seasons that they represent. I can't wait to try Herfst and Winter.

In short, this beer is phenomenal:
For the features that really matter (taste/smell) - Lilac, dandelion, wheat, grass, honey, pollen, lemon, hay, pepper are all present. This is a wonderfully round, decently tart gueuze - floral, bright, easy to drink.
