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.

Christian (12619) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2012 Sour & Bitter Festival CPH 2012. Armand’4 side by side. Cloudy orange with a lasting off-white head. Wooden, spicy and fruity aroma with a little green plants note and quite a bit of sulphur. Dry and mildly tart flavour with wood and funk. My least favourite of the set, but still, a damn elegant beer...

Yellow gold, thin white head. Wild funky aroma. Medium body, soft carbonation. Predominantly sour taste. Good, but doesn’t really stand out in any way amongst lambics.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAY 10, 2012
750mL thanks to the Kernel brewers. Hazy dark peach. Musty off white, large bubbled head. Sharp leather nose with big attic must and old grapefruit peel mold and funk. Fresher tangerine and curaçao blood orange citric tang. Wow. 9/10 aroma. Taste is white vinegar up front and salty moving to sharper leather and spice. Richer dough background with lingering salty acidity. Powerful. Very aggressive. Palate is perfect grapefruit juice with white vinegar saltiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
