Unlabelled bottle at the source. Shared with BigMomma. Murky variegated golden brown color, massive dark tan head with flavor flecks. Amazing retention. Aroma is spectacular! "Thatís from the Challenger hops," said Armand. Iím the only one who uses them." Scents of rye flour, leather, sesame, biscuits and grandmaís attic. Taste is toasted dark bread, citrus and sesame breadsticks. Wonderful.

Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2013 Bottle at the East Croydon Beer Tasting. Scopey quickly becoming legend. Pours cloudy gold with a delicate, white foam head. Rich grass aroma with leather and faint lemon. Flavor is quite exquisite, extremely clean and fresh, lots of grass, sour, modest zesty lemon. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Super clean finish, more grass, some tart citrus, low acidity, hints of white grapes. Just incredibly drinkable, grassy and fresh with cleansing sourness. Superb. (4.7)

Bottle at RBWG. Brad is the man. Yep, as good as last time. (4.7)

harrisoni (17284) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2012
Bottle @ RBESG 2011 Grand Tasting at Dean Swift. Hazy gold orange colour with lasting beige head. Aroma is pretty stunning. Leafy funk. Could smell this all day. Biscuit in mouth. Quite complex in mouth. Good sourness on end. Itís pretty good, but I think I preferred the Tilquin before it. Itís pretty good though.

Bottle at home on my lonesome, from an IP trade at Borefts í13, 25/06/14. Very lightly hazed golden amber with a well appointed eggshell white head that retains well, carbonation evident. Nose is citric tinged straw, dry rot, dank woody notes, must, rotting apple core, funky dogs collar, dried out back of the cupboard lemon. Taste comprises tangy/tarte white grapes, musty orchard wood, bitter lemon rinds, funky, grandads shed - 3rd draw down the little damp patch, dank citric tinged straw, burnt grass. Medium bodied, fine massageing carbonation, dank orchard rinse in the close. Top draw Gueuze - great balance, great depth of flavour.

yngwie (16507) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle, at RBNAG-11. An unclear, golden-orange beer topped by a small, off-white head. Funky, fluor-like nose with barnyard and earthyness. Quite lemony flavor with funkyness, fluor-like hints and barnyard and earth. Lasting funky barnyard finish. Full-bodied and tart, really pleasant on the palate. Although a bit too sourish, itís a really pleasant beer. Probably the best of the three first Armandí4 beers. 111015

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 22, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2011 A: The beer pours a hazed golden amber color with a tall white head. S: Intensely funky, maybe even a bit more than the usual Drie Fonteinen gueuze. Lots of earth and grass, definitely a bit of the old sock smell, too. Nice lemon zest, green apple, and tart citric character, too. T: The flavor is much like the aroma indicates. Lots of lemon zest, apple, and acidic tartness to the beer. Grass, straw, earthy funk, a little bit of oak and must, too. M: Medium in body with a high level of carbonation. O: Really a good gueuze. I just donít know if itís worth it for most people to spend the extra money.
