Winter was pretty interesting. It started out with a weird nose, kind of alcoholic, but as it opened up it became incredible. I had it at #4 in the set at first, still not sure where I have it at now.

Very similar to Herfst, a bit darker than the first two season in flavor, very well balanced.

Aroma of oranges, bright acidity, earthy funk, and surprisingly nutty toffee. Quite interesting and complex. Slightly cheesy, some acetic notes. Graham cracker, lots of oak character. Strawberries, grassy, honey, mushrooms, and tea. Woof.

Hazy orange with an off-white head that has surprisingly good retention. Not too much lacing.

Tart but happily not heavy on acetic acid. Apples and berries. Acidity is sharp initially but doesn't stick on the back of the tongue or cheeks. Almonds and wheat come in on the finish. Surprisingly very fresh tasting on the palate. Lots of oak. Lemon and hay. Funk reminiscent of pu erh tea. It only gets better as it warms.

Acidity fills the mouth but finishes relatively clean with lingering woody notes on the palate. High carbonation with medium light body. Lots of depth.

I haven't had a gueuze quite like this. I had a Herfst not too long ago that was a bit too heavy on the acetic acid. Not this. Plenty tart for sure, but very nice yogurt-y lactic acid. Age has served this beer quite well.
