750ml bottle poured into a Drie Fonteinen fountain gueuze tumbler. Enjoyed on 12.6.2014, review is from Tasting Journal. Enjoyed side by side with the other 3 seasons.

The beer pours a murky amber color, hues of orange and copper, very cloudy with a big, thick, bone colored head, about 3-4 fingers high, super lively, with fantastic retention and lace. The aroma is really funky and dirty, though it does open up after warming with some fleshy stone fruit, apple, citrus, mildly floral with some spice and grain, almost a bit crusty and rustic, plays well with the musty funk. The flavors mirror well, very funky, but with it comes some fruit, berries, apple, citrus, a touch of wildflower and grassy weeds, wheat, rustic grain, coriander like spice, lightly bitter, not overly sour, more tart and very dry. The mouthfeel is quite unusual relative to the rest of the seasons, much like a cask feel, smooth, juicy, coating that finishes lightly dry.

Verdict: A very fine gueuze from Drie Fonteinen, perhaps in an odd spot from when fresh, but still a rewarding experience. There is balance, harmony, funk, fruit, aged hops and defined malt, all working in unison to achieve a wonderful beer.
