Reviewed from notes. Sampled all 4 Armandí4 side by side at a tasting back in early 2012. Lente pours a cloudy amber orange in color with a large, frothy, off-white head. The beer has excellent head retention and lacing. Nose is comprised of classic 3F funk, must, barnyard, lemon, horse blanket, and earth. The flavor of Lente is what really set it apart from the rest of the Armandí4 originally. It is full of bright, citric lemon like the Zomer, but it also has the layers of funk. Truth be told, it might be the funkiest of the 4. The mouthfeel is light, with moderate acidity, lively carbonation, and a long finish. At the time, this proved to me by favorite bottle of the bunch. Iíd be interested to see how itís developing in comparison to the others now. Iím guessing that some may have rounded out more nicely than this one, then again I have had the others since and havenít had a drop of Lente.

Orange color with solid foam ring. The smell resembles a buttery flower field with a little of old feet. The taste is sour, but not too aggressive. Light funkiness, but father decent. The aftertaste is dry and sour.

With Toni from Erzbierschof and anstei. Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma is very distinct, flowery, citrusy. Taste is citrusy, perfumed. Some rubber, some old bread. Simply good. Full body. A fantastic blend, and yes, spring. Iím blown away by what Toni is offering tonight.

Kinz (3530) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Drakeís 10k courtesy of travlr. Medium amber, low level acidic aroma, lots of horseblanket. Flavor matched. Pretty far to the mellow horseblanket side of things as opposed to the bracing acidity of a Cantillon, but a very nice beer indeed. Somehow had a level of subtlety and sophistication you wouldnít find in the style.

Bottle shared at the Cotteridge convention, 24/01/2015. Huge thanks to BeersIveKnown for this one. Hazed orange / onion skin coloured pour with a fine white head. Aroma is big onion, musty, funk, clean citric acid, spicy. Flavour is composed of crisp tart, orange pith, citric acid, pretty clean. Suberb. Palate is sharp and tart, airy carbonation, . Horsey, musty funk in the finish. A realt pleasure.

Dark golden with white head. Aroma is spring. Full of hope, life, flowers, citrus and horses without the shit. Spritzy, fresh and lively finish. Overall: Believe the hype. This is spring in a bottle.
