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.

hopscotch (10529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Murky peach-colored ale with a huge, frothy, white head that diminishes to a tight, creamy cap that never fades. The aromatic highlights are barnyard, wet leather, horse blanket and a hunk of some very funky-assed cheese. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with airy carbonation. The flavor is funky and moderately sour, but also presents sweet-bread and biscuit components that serve to provide an additional layer of complexity to an already-complex beer. Finishes tart and yeasty with just a touch of toffee sweetness. Another world class beer shared with the south Florida crew by darkguardian!

Marheb (4329) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Arôme de croutons brûlés, acide lactique, agrumes. En bouche c’est extremement volatile, une bouffée de légèreté.

Bottle thanks to ygtbsm94! Hazy apricot pour, decent carbonation and a pleasant aroma of funky farmhouse acidity. Flavor is very funky sour lemons, dirty socks (in a good way), more nice acidity that bites all the way to your stomach. Solid beer all around.

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2012
[Bottle] Shared by Greg. Thanks! Pours cloudy copper with a large speckled orangey head. Minerally, geuzey aroma, a bit of sweaty socks, lemon, a little grapefruit rind, and a little Parmesan cheese rind. The flavor is perfectly balanced, nice acidity, smooth, light bitterness, lingering sourness, bright and crisp. Very nice geuze. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
