COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Armandí4 Herfst Oude Geuze is a blend of 1, 2 and 3 year old Lambic, brewed, aged, blended and bottled by Armand Debelder. This one-time and possibly the last bottling comes in a fancy Asti Spumante Champagne bottle. Armand only used Challenger hops in this brew. Heís in fact the only lambic-brewer to use Challenger hops to make his Geuze. 60 % malted barley, 40 % wheat, aged hops and water. Each seasonís geuze has an unique and different blend.

What can I say. Iím a bit biased when it comes to lambics. Big white foam that sticks to the glass. High carbonation. Sour distinct taste that is familiar in good geuze style. This one is one of the better ones with more complex afyer taste and being more balanced.

Mortlach (1132) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 5, 2015
750ml bottle shared with ippopotamo36 @La Tana. Unclear amber with a big off-white foam. Aroma is citric, vinous, lime, a note of wood that emerges after a while. Flavour is powerful, citric, tart, not as complex as I expected but so elegant... medium body, good carbonation. Another gem by 3Fonteinen!

ippopotamo36 (666) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle (retired) at La Tana pub in Rome-Italy. Private collection shared by mortlach. Grazie Mille. Pours cloudy orange skin going amber, huge orangish head! Nose: lime forward, wood, a background of bitter cacao. Mouth: lemonade, grapefruit, kind of white vinegars, extreme and elegant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The_Osprey (2916) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2015
Bottle share at Craft Clerkenwell, thanks to Tom! 2010 vintage. Cloudy orange, very small white head. Aroma is strong lemon and peach - potent. Body is medium, tingly carbonation, smooth. Not the over-carb Iím used to in the style. Taste is smooth lemon, earthy and twiggy, very dry. Very good, flavoursome stuff.

harrisoni (14842) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2015
Bottle at Toms 10 yr anniversary. Lovely complex lambic aroma. Touch of woody age. Proper funk. Very good. Zesty funk. Good blend.

jercraigs (8334) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2015
2015-03-04. Hazy amber body with a nice creamy head. 3++ Aroma is lightly funky and pleasantly fruity. Light straw and barnyard grows as you delve further into it. 7++ Flavour is interesting, pleasantly sour throughout but it is pleasantly rounded and not overly aggressive. Modesty earthy barnyard accents. Moderate fruit character throughout. Smooth average bodied palate, soft effervescent carbonation. More nuanced than my notes reflect, it was surprisingly subtle, shockingly quaffable, and pleasantly refreshingly sour. Too busy enjoying and not enough note taking! Bottle shared by Travlr.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; hazy light copper pour with a massive lively off white head, funk aroma, taste has peach, zesty lemon, barnyard funk.

solidfunk (4979) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 4, 2015
Wonderful and very well rounded. Grapefruit tangy bretta here. Pours orange with good head and lacing. Wonderful package. Nice rind. Tangy finish with some crackery crispness. Big thanks to Travlr for breaking this one out of the cellar.

At my place in a testosterone filled den on poker night. Cork was dusty and dirty, came out with no PPP; fuck, flat. Aroma is funky Gueuze Drie font funk. Much more funny than most of the drie font I have had. old and funky awesome cobwebs.Taste is big funk that is in your face Truely a fantastic Gueuze. Tast

HoppyBudgie (812) - SOLA, NORWAY - FEB 21, 2015
Golden orange pour. Substantial barnyard aroma of lighter funk, some sweet notes. Tart flavor but no overly so. Barnyard funkiness , some citrus find and zest. Complex and almost a champagnelike breadish taste. On my tp 3 ever
