The Last Four Winters In WisconsinThe Last Four Winters In Wisconsin
Notes: The culmination of sixteen seasons has come to fruition. The Last Four Winters in Wisconsin is a reflection on the past four years and represents three vintages of spontaneously fermented beer, followed by a year-long maturation in the bottle. Thoughtfully blended from the best Méthode Traditionnelle barrels in our cellar, Four Winters is the expression of time, patience, and the irrepressible changing of our seasons.

Cellared two years. Murky bronze body with a white ring, lazy bubbles slide down the glass as we go. Aromas of barnyard and horse blanket funk right upfront, revealing green apple, lemon, pear, hay, oak, and brett. Taste has huge lemon and apple, funks and wet oak temper on the back end of the sip, hay and brett finish. Sneaky complex, funk and sourness are the texture stars. Definitely new world but well done

Big thanks to the girl at Funk Factory last week who shared some of this with me, just a rando patron rolling in several beers deep already.

Pours a dark yellow light orange type of color. Thin white head, 1/3". The aroma is pretty gooooozie especially for an American iteration, one of the things I like most about these guys and de Garde is they capture some of that local environment in the nose, whether it be cows or otherwise. Good amount of light/white oak to it.

Taste is nice and soft, while gueuze like, it doesn't have a pronounced sourness or acidity. Its pretty nice. Body is well done, unremarkable and carries the flavors and nuance down the pike. Carbonation is just where I like it. Just some light lemon without the pucker and mild stone fruit impression, like just the skins or something to where its not all juicy and getting away from a beercentric 'beer'. I really dig Funk Factory's beers, but when Meerts is super awesome and affordable, I'm happy to have these excellent expensive tier beers a few ounces at a time.

Softly hazy sunset orange with lighter yellow edges and a fuzzy white head.

This really nails all them goozy notes they're clearly going for. It's very well developed with a distinctly herbal and woody gueuze-like characteristic. Oaky funk and a mild sourness emulating apricot are accented by seedy toast in the frothy semi-dry body.

2018 vintage; drank 4/5/19 @ Yuss Haus Mach III.

The highlight of a rather massive share for me; fruit-forward (without any fruit) but balanced & very easy to drink. Just the right amount of tartness. A well-made American take on the style. Hope I can track down another!!

L - golden straw like hue. Light head that had no retention
S - classic gueuze smell. Mineral Also has a nice sweet sent, vanilla.
T - follows the nose. Mineral. Clean malt bill. Vanilla, caramel
F - fantastic. This quenches thurst like non other. Hard not to just pour down your throat. Light and bubbly on the tongue and a light mouth feel.
O - what a great American representation of Méthode Traditionnelle. Rivals Broken Truck and coolship Resurgam

375ml bottle, on-site at the taproom. Served in a Funk Factory branded stemmed glass. Pours a cloudy golden yellow body, slight copper orange hue, one finger white head, good retention, no lacing. Smell is damp oaken wood, touch of leathery brett, mild acetic acidity, a bit of sweet grain- more of a trace caramel, really. Slightly floral. Flavour follows; with even more damp wood. The oak is prevalent throughout but not in an offensive way. It's got a mild-moderate lemony acetic acidity which is more well-rounded and not particularly bothersome. The sweetness is fairly mellow, and cuts into the acidity nicely, on a background of oak. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, good carbonation, on the slightly soft and creamy side. Finishes off with a mildly acetic, damp oak finish. It's delicious- it has less of that sometimes overbearing acidity of some of the recent Funk Factory beers as of late, and a more interesting and slightly more complex flavour profile. It's delicious and enjoyable to drink!
