Dunt (299) - Illinois, USA - JAN 14, 2013
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.

Medium dark orange with a white head. Musky cinnamon, basement aroma. Flavor is so smooth, a bit of bright sweetness to offset the dank wood lemon sourness. Pleasant soft funky geuze, incredible.

Bottle shared by Travlr at my 10K tasting. Thanks! Hazy orange, medium sized foamy off-white head, good retention. Aroma of peppery, spicy funk, barnyard, hay, dry stone fruits. The taste is tart, dry citrus, peppery barnyard, spice. Medium bodied, high carbonation, lingering funk.

Bottle share at Cotteridge Wines. With huge thanks to Beersiveknown. Cloudy hazy orange, small ring of white head. Aroma is spicy with dirty, earthy lemon notes. Body is medium, very foamy, low-ish carbonation. Taste is very, very sour and bretty. Lemon, vinegar, acidic. I know Iím a heretic when it comes to sours, but my palate isnít there yet Iím afraid! Very pleased to try it though.

Kinz (3507) - 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.
