Pours a dark orange color with a big fluffy foam.
Tastes fruity, tart, light funk, a little puckering at the finish.
Has light effervescent carbonation.

Opened 8-29-15, poured into a HF tulip glass...
striking deep peach/apricot color with thick white 2 inch head that lingers as 1/2 inch foam for several minutes...
aroma and taste are the same--huge burst of crazy uber funky-dank-dustyness with stone apricot zesty flavors--in your face concentration... only similar US beer ive ever had is le sarrasin, though this kicks it up a notch in funkiness!! Outstanding beverage!

Lente was #3 in my initial line up. The nose is beautiful, a bit less intense than Zomer, but perfect in its own way. Floral, citrus, funk, tartness, all very well balanced. My only knock on Lente is that I felt it was just a bit too faint on the taste. It has all of the qualities of a bright gueuze, think fresh 3F OG, but I felt that it faded too quickly for me.

Aside from that, still one of the best gueuze out there. Having the Seasons was an awesome experience, but I wouldn't seek them out again. Regular OG is nearly just as good.
