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.

Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a hazy amber with a lacing off-white head. Again a heavy and violent carbonation with a shooting cork. Interesting aroma, almost bonbonish with the Brett being fairly downplayed. Medium body, sweetish overripe fruit, even a little caramel with the Brett and funky tartness coming in late. Ends tart and sulphuropus. 080512

cpetrone84 (1776) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2012
pour is dark golden orange with tons of bubbly white head. The nose has some dustiness to it then some of the others with a nice cheese rind and juicy peach and apricot. The taste is juicier than the nose an lighter in the brett and cheese department. Some dry dusty Brett sets in mid to back palate with the juicy apricots behind. The body is a touch syrupy with a nice carbonation and light body. Interesting fruit component, strongest of the three (had next to zomer and lente).
