From left to right:
Winter – spiced with rose hips, orange peel and cinnamon
Autumn – spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and orange peel
Summer – spiced with coriander
Spring – spiced with wild chamomile, lemon peel and culinary lavender
Although each was only two ounces, I made my way back and forth through the seasons multiple times and in doing so the story of The Three Bears came to mind. Instead of being too hot or too cold, too soft or too hard I found the Spring to be too floral and the Autumn and Winter to be too spicy. But the Summer, the Summer was just right. The Autumn and Winter both grew on me and improved as they warmed but it was the Summer, a subtly sour wheat beer, that won it for me.
Did you make it to the tasting? If so, was there one that was just right for you?
