Bottle. Fairly clear amber with big white head. Musty and funky, not as sharp as some gueze, some strange plastic, red apple. Taste is sharp, acidic, funky also a little malt coming through, red apple and caramel. Extremely sour and a little lingering sticky.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (750 ml) @ an Armand’4 tasting. Clear golden/orange with a small white head and good lacing. Aroma is of fruits and citrus along with mineral and grassy notes. There’s also funky notes, but way less than in the Lente. Taste is moderately sour with mineral and herbal notes. Moderate carbonation. Dry. Smoother than Lente, but still very good. Superb balance again here. It’s very interesting that Armand’4 are so different!

Bottles (all 4!) shared by Tommy and David, thanks! This one is clear golden, not at all like its predecessor (Lente). Aroma this time around is composed of burnt rubber and grass with funk level toned down a little. Acidity again is on the lower side, but with a nice and sour touch. This stuff is highly drinkable! Flavors on this one are more peachy. This serie is a masterpiece!

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 Tasted the 4 seasons, blind, next to each other. Shared with Mathieu87.
This one was very nice, but seemed a little more one-dimensional to me.
Appearance: nice head, gusher!
Nose: lime, lemon, horse blanket.
Taste: very sour one, high in carbonation, very good geuze.
