COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Armand’4 Winter 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. He’s in fact the only lambic-brewer to use Challenger hops to make his Geuze. 60 % malted barley, 40 % wheat, aged hops and water. Each season’s geuze has an unique and different blend.

Thanks to Søren for this! Pours hazy amber with a white head. Aroma is rural with grapefruit. Has that cheesy quality to it along with some earthiness as well, Also some sour fruits and delis brett. Taste is kinda the same with some more bitterness - Grapefruit, floral notes, vinegar, herbs and ofc very tart and sparkling. love it!

Bottle Thanks Søren. Pours golden amber with a frothy head. Aroma immediately you get loads of lacto bacteria, dry sawdust, bitter dandelion, there is also quite a lot of must funk in there along with a big hot of sulfur, gunpowder and some leathery notes. I also get dry lemon, acidic notes, dusty notes, stable and wet wood. Very high carbonation, sparkling, champagne like, very dry, tart and acidic. loads of dry lemon, stable, sweet lemon and vinegar, funk, finishes off with gunpowder and sulfur.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2013 (08/10/2012) Split a 75 cl. Champagne bottle of this with Dylan / Kraddel - this has been sitting now since 2010 or something in the bottle, about right for my tastes now. Pours a darker shade or orange, rather dark compared with what expected into an oversized Karmeliet glass, huge creamy white head. Smell is huge, you can smell this from a distance, huge 3F funk with lots of horseblanket, musty, old, funky fruits, peach even, light mushroom, reasonable amount of leather. Taste is huge 3F funk, lots of barnyard, mushroom, it doesn’t taste very sour but you can feel the citrus acidity in your throat and on your lips, lovely, musty mushrooms, plenty of leather, wild yeasts, musty earthly, hay. Lightly murky body, great body - phenomenal stuff - my favorite after Lente from all four. ///// Tried another one @ RBESG 2013. Still just as astonishing. Brilliant beer.

Winter est une geuze orangée. Son nez offre des fruits aigres qui se combinent à la douceur d’un caramel parfumé par une huile de sésame. Au goût, les notes fruitées aigres et les flaveurs développées par les microbes se laissent timidement envahir par des fines fleurs sucrées. En bouche, la rondeur du corps de Winter surprend. Son pétillement est délicat et sa texture me semble bien crémeuse. En finale, Winter offre des parfums de vin blanc aigre qui ne sont jamais trop intenses ni astringents. (Embouteillée le 22/04/2010 et évolutive jusqu’en avril 2020).

Bottle at Ben’s. Cheers Ben! Hazy Golden Amber. Amazing nose. So smooth tart and yet fruity. Flavour has Sherbet, Lemon and Orange peel and rampant tangy tartness. Wonderful.

Hazy dark golden color with a medium sized, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of hay, cellar, light citric, wood, and bacteria. Taste of tart lemon, dry wood, some toastiness, and a sour finish.

Bottle at this years Sour&Bitter in Copenhagen. Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass very zippy, nice head. Starts mild sourish, but gets more and more sour. Fruity like lemon and grapefruit. Finish intense sour, a bit moldy, woody. Interesting!
