4.19/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

From notes. Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip. Compared with Lente, Zomer, and Herfst side by side.

Winter is a little bit lighter than the others of the series, still with a nice bubbly carbonation on the pour that rests gently as a small cap for the duration of the glass.

The aroma has a much stronger earthy and musty aroma than the other three. There are notes of mushrooms and funky cheese to go along with a tart lemon character and a bit of hay.

The flavor really follows the aroma. There is actually a bit of sweetness up front, with the tartness taking its time to come in. The flavor is more earthy and mellow, with lemon zest providing more support and balance than a true dominating flavor. Winter is definitely less fruity than the other seasons as well.

The body is slightly lighter than the other seasons, with a creamy and smooth carbonation that matches what I have seen from the other three. It is also fairly dry, with a fairly strong oak presence.

Even though I did not prefer Winter to the others of the series, this is still a strong offering.

4.69/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Bottle shared with Josh (Maneliquor) at CBC Islington at Bruce’s birthday. Nice rich looking bright amber, huge white foam head in the glass which slowly dissipates to thin. Nose is probably the most beautiful gueuze I’ve tasted. I could just sit and smell this all day. It’s big sour, acidic, lots of horse blanket and funk, caramel, green apples, very tangy. Deep rich aromas. Taste is slightly more restrained but still a complex and full flavoured limbic. Green apples, sour, acidic, lots of funk and horse blanket, yeasty, grainy malt. Balance is about as good as it gets. Phenomenal beer.
