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.

Maakun (4062) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2016
Bottle shared at John almost got killed by a cork tasting, thanks to kermis for sharing. Hazy dark golden, almost copper with big light beige head. Lots of hay, farmyard, dank cellar, especially on the nose. In the taste there’s some lactic and yoghurt notes, dead leaves, some sherry, quite earthy. Under medium sour with light lactic sweetness throughout. Medium bodied with slight sticky feel and champagne-like carbonation. A bit disappointing to be honest.

Bottle at the Jim / John is back tasting, Den Haag, April 2016. Courtesy of Kermis. Poured a murky medium amber with frothy white head. The aroma is big yeast, doughy biscuit, tart citrus. The flavour is moderate sour with a sharp acidic citrus palate. Medium to light bodied with average carbonation.

Bottle, thanks for sharing! Pours a cloudy earthy orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is funk forward with a decent amount of menthol and some dry tart fruits and a bit of oak. Flavor has a nice acid note with a good amount of menthol and some earthy funk and a touch of oak.

Bottle @ The Levi Tasting. Thanks, Levi! Slightly hazy light Amber pour with a small head. Nose is wonderfully expressive. Massive barnyard aroma. Bucolic splendor. Manure, barnyard funk. Light lemon. Flavor is wonderful. Sort tartness. Light pollen. Acid and brett working well together. Lightly sweet. Easy drinking, effervescent carb. Fantastic. This is amazing right now.

Bottle share by Caleb. Hold color, very heavily carbonated. Sour and earthy. Some cheese. Full of flavor. An earthy character comes out as I drink more of it. Complex, sour, excellent beer.

ineedbeer (1853) - Oakland, California, USA - FEB 17, 2016
Aroma is nice with some light citrus notes. Medium light herbal notes with a light mint note. Some light stone fruit character and a bit of oak notes. Pours a hazy, golden copper color with a very large, white head that shows good retention as it recedes to the edges. Medium light lacing and small legs. About as dark as Herfst. Flavor is nice with a good herbal character. Light citrus notes with a touch of stone fruit. Good oak notes. Nice funk with good earthiness and herbal notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium high to high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice beer with great herbal and citrus notes. Probably my second favorite season but its very close to Herfst.
