75 cl bottle @ Kaisla
Slightly hazy orange color, small head. Very nice sourish notes, mild rowanberries and some grass. Flavor is somewhat sourish with berry notes and grass, mild gooseberries too. Palate is sour and crisp, long lingering tart finish, excellent and quite exciting. Top notch.

750ml bottle @ Kaisla, Helsinki

Pours murky orange with a large foamy white head. Aroma of sour berries, tartness, earthy notes, rowenberries and hints of apricot. Taste is smooth, pleasant, slightly sourish and tartish with notes of rowenberries, apricot, sweetness and earthy notes. Finish is surprisingly soft and smooth, slightly sour and tartish with some berry notes. Quite pleasant and balanced gueuze. Tasty stuff.

750 ml bottle @ Kaisla, Helsinki. Pours a a cloudy orange colour with a white head. Aroma of herbs, citrus and rowanberry jam. Flavour of very tart citrus, rowanberries, lingonberries, licorice root(!), grass and strong floral notes. Full bodied and a very tart, sour, berryish finish. Excellent stuff.

75 cl bottle @ Kaisla. Bottled 26.03.2010, BBE 03/2020
Aroma is leathery with farmhouse aromas and grapefruit. Flavour is really tart with lots of grapefruit, some rowanberries and distant lactic notes. Foamy palate. Excellent, although the lactic notes try to ruin the show. Lente is slightly better.

Marheb (3156) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Une fois le liège éjecté, la pièce est aussitôt impregnée d’une bruine de lambics suintants. Des élans verdoyants ne sont freinés que par des acides acétiques et citriques hyper tranchants et fruités, une gueuze typique 3F avec un peu plus de mordant herbacé. Le liquide est un tout cohérent et harmonieux avec une bonne charpente de céréales et une longue finale sèche et surette.

Bottle shared with my buddy Jared. My last of the Armand 4 series. Blooming slightly off-white head that actually lasts fairly long, slightly hazy darker rust orange. Loads of leather, deep, deep, deep aromas of wood, earth, hay, leaves, funk, only slight acidity. Leathery, wood, earth, funky, but perhaps one of the driest beers I’ve had. Medium to lighter body for the style, with bright vibrant carbonation. Yep, this is the best beer I have ever had thus far.

More.carbonation than lente. Citrusy and acidic. Nice small.bubbles carbonation. Maybe a bit more citrusy than lente. Great citrusy notes quite drinkable and elegant. More character than the lente.
