We lined up all four seasons at Sloshfest 2015 a little while ago. Good fun with mediocre people. Cheers gents!

From a 750 into a wine glass

APPEARANCE: Pours a big, four finger, foamy white head with excellent retention. Hazy, darker gamboge orange with a touch of carbonation evident. Foamy cap remains until the end leaving lots of foamy lacing down the glass. Looks most like Lente.

SMELL: Funky aromas with hay, a bit of citrus fruit notes and some acidity as well. Quite musty and dank; probably the most musty of the series, and more forthcoming than Zomer.

TASTE: Funky with barnyard, some light citrus notes, tart lemon and sourness up front. Medium finish with hay and barnyard funk, some bolder musty and dank qualities, with hints of fruity citrus as well. A touch of acidity as well. Stronger than Zomer but without the peach and apricot character. Musty and funky.

PALATE: Medium body with medium levels of carbonation. A little foamy on the palate, goes down fine and finishes dry. Some tart lemon lingers. The foamiest of the series.

OVERALL: All of these were solid and I'd put this one as third place. It's bolder than Zomer and has a nice array of musty and funky stuff going on, but the fruity peach and apricot that I enjoyed so much in Zomer was missing. Bolder for sure, but less complex perhaps. Still, this was great and I'm very happy to have been able to try them all in a row. Cheers boys!

Deep orange colouring of white head and some lace. Smell is probably the fruitiest of the seasons, orange, lemon and stone fruit, funky with a massive oak presence. Taste is similar to the nose, funky, orange and peach with tart lemons, dry and puckering, acidic all the way through. Medium carbonation, closer to full body. My clear favourite of the seasons, absolutely outstanding.

Everything about Herfst was perfect. So well balanced. It's a bit darker in flavor than the first two Seasons if that makes any sense, it's not as bright. I really love bright gueuze, but this was very impressive. I've heard it's drinking well right now, this definitely confirms it.

Edit: Fantastic and was my favorite that day of the set, but A&T exists.
