marcus (7477) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle from Beer Planet. Pours cloudy golden with a modest white head and a fruity aroma. There is a funky sour barnyard flavor that is more complex than most gueuzes due to the unusual blending. If you are a fan of lambics, this one is a pleasure to drink.

KyotoLefty (7453) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle from the brewery. Brilliant gold-orange color, with a big head. Lemony nose, light leather, grapefruit zest. Huge, vibrant flavors, fresh but complex. Grapefruit and lemon zest, light funk, nice bitterness, a fresh, very summery beer. Great.

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.

Ibrew2or3 (7423) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 4, 2011
Pours opaque copper with gold hues and white head. The aroma smooth and subdued hay, spicy yeast, tartness and some soured and tart apricot skins. The taste has a burst of firm bold tartness with ribbons of soured fruit, soured citrus and then a strong undercurrent of lemon like acidity. Overall too tart for me where the Lente was ‘money’

phaleslu (7419) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2012 750 ml bottle sampled at STLWill’s 30th birthday tasting- thanks again! Pours a hazy golden orange color with a fairly large white head. The aroma is earthy, musty, oaky, and funky, with a lot of mixed citrus and herbs. Flavor of lemon, white grapes, lactic acid, leather, and some leafy hops. Dry finish. Sour and earthy mouthfeel, with a medium body and medium, crisp carbonation. I liked this a lot but not as much as the other three in the Armand’4 season series. Re-Rate: Will shared another. A notch better than I remembered. Really earthy and crisp.

laiti (7263) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 31, 2014
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.

douglas88 (7187) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 13, 2011
750 ml bottle in those awesome bottles from 3F. Drank almost right after the Lente. Pours a much darker amber color with a similar large white head. A rich nose of massive tannins, oaky but also some huge sour acidic notes, very distinctly aggressive. There is certainly a fruity character in those nose, it’s hard to pin down close to lemon and currants. The flavor is a massive blast of sour tart lemons, dusty, herbal tea, it leaves a long lip smacking tartness, something akin to leather and grains. Very nice. It also has the lovely dry and effervescent palate that only the greatest lambics have. Much more aggressive than the Lente in some ways, refreshing and tasty. A nice, no a amazing Summer beer.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Bottle shared by ygtbsm94: Pours a hazy dark golden with a stringy-lacing froth of clumpy white head. Has a earthy funky grassy complex with a smooth herbal brett nose. Starts with good fullness and light malty sweetness, quickly giving way to a tart, well-balanced floral funky complexity before a drier, crisp sweet-tart finish. An incredibly balanced and very drinkable gueuze. I just wish is was more accessible/cheaper.

mabel (7059) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2012
[4723-20120818] Bottle. Amazing sour yeast aroma has a little citrus zest throughout. Slightly hazy, light orange brown body with a quick foamy white head. Super sour yeast puckerer flavour. Medium body is all sour. It’s literally making me sneeze. (9/3/8/4/17) 4.1

lusikka (7053) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 31, 2014
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.
