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.

Countbeer (5981) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2012 Bottle: Thanks Milan: Medium airy sticky creamy yellow ish cheesy head, changes quick into a thin airy half open lacing on top of a hazy orange colored beer. Smell is a special mix of rubber, caramel, wild yeast, wood, cellar, old herby hops, some light sour sugary notes and a hint of sweet sour old malts. Reminds me slightly of the Zomer. Taste is nice and medium sour with sharper grainy notes, some soap and flowers, elder hops, yeast, wild yeast, older dried (yellow) notes and sharper sour light stingy older hop and malty tones. Aftertaste is a light mix of sour, grains, dry, older hops, wilder yeast and a light stingy grainy hayish touch. Low carbo, soft light watery light tingly mouthfeel, medium to full body and a well balanced medium light watery texture. Very tasty but not the best of the 4.

IluvatarMilan (282) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2012
Pours a light orange, honey coloured body with an usually rich head, which nevertheless quickly disappears. Aroma is amazing. Strong typical lambic flavours with some rubber, gember. Taste is rather subtle and drinkable. Nice funkiness. Bit watery yellow fruit. Not as good as its spring and summer counterparts but still very worthwhile.

DSG (11353) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 9, 2012
Bottle shared at a sour tasting at Noam’s office. Cloudy deep orange with a big stable fluffy off-white head. Aroma of barnyard, leather, citrus and some flowers. Sour flavor, quite citric, with floral notes, oak and a finish with a hint of bitterness. Medium-bodied, lively carbonation. An awesome gueuze.

hopscotch (10557) - 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 (4563) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Arôme de croutons brûlés, acide lactique, agrumes. En bouche c’est extremement volatile, une bouffée de légèreté.

Plovmand (7752) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2012
Bottle at Sour & Bitter. Pours hazy golden with a bubbly white head. The aroma is dry hops, grape fruit, acid and leather. The flavour is acid, grape fruit, hops and dusty basement like. Acidic and dry finish.

DalzAle (2020) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2012
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
