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.

The beer pours a hazy yellow-orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of funk and lemons, with some tart oranges, leather and cherries also thrown in. The flavor is similar. What comes through up front is the tart lemons and cherries, as well as a good bit of barnyard funk and leather. Very dry. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation.

from Erzbierschof - hazy bronze beer under a solid foamy head; strong cheesy aroma, barnyard, old apples and a hint of vinegar; medium-bodied; very tasty, acidic and pretty dry; fizzy with a long aftertaste of cheese, apples and vinegar - superb !

Gription79 (2309) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Poured from a 750ml bottle. There are citrusy notes, caramel/toffee sweetness, a spicy quality, as well as some fruitiness. Very dry. This was my least favorite in the series, still very good.

Dark orange colored beer. Complex fruity and sourish aroma and flavor. Mild bitter flavor. Mild tartness. I expected more from a 3 Fonteinen. Sourness nicely balanced with the hoppy flavors.
