COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Het is een heerlijk blond bier van hoge gisting met 7% alc. vol. dat gedryhopt werd met de Amerikaanse Hop Cascade waardoor het bier bijzonder aangenaam en complex fruitig smaakt met een geweldige bittere nasmaak. Deze Armand werd gebrouwen ter ere van de medestichter, Armand Desplenter, van de brouwerij en draagt dan ook zijn naam.

Bottle shared by nuplastikk. Thanks greg. Fruity with some citrus. Decent malt backbone with some herbs and spices on the end. Wow, this beer impressed me quite a bit.

Holmen2 (2567) - NORWAY - MAY 2, 2016
Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 02.05.16. Hazy straw colour. White head and lacing. Aroma of banana, citrus and weissbier. Similar taste, with evident bitteness - particularly in aftertaste. Quite complex.

Holmen1 (4348) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2016
Flaske fra Belgisk Bryg, delt med Ovesen mens vørteren koker: lett uklar, lys gylden med fint skum som varer. citrusaroma med hint av krydder og malt. Frisk og delikat smak følger opp, slank og lettdrkkelig for sitt vitamininnhold. Mild bitterhet i ettersmaken. Et elegant og velbalansert øl.

Icedwarf (1104) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2016
Helder geel bier met veel stevig schuim. Smaak is krachtig, zoet en fruitig met iets van ananas en perzik. Heeft een mooie uitgebalanceerde smaak.

stouby (4258) - Holbæk, DENMARK - APR 25, 2016
Bottle at home. Light hazy amber body with a large white head, nice lacings. Aroma medium malty (bread), yeasty (light fruit, spicy) and hoppy. Flavor medium sweet, spicy and bitter. Medium body, the strength is felt.

BlackHaddock (5643) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2016
33cl bottle in Brugge on 7th Feb 2016. Light amber body with a white foaming top. Mixed fruit bag for the nose and taste dusted with fine sugar, biscuits and yeast. Mild citrus lean towards the finish but otherwise a semi-sweet easy drinking beer that I found enjoyable to drink as I watched customers come into the new K&S Beer & Tobacco store/tasting room.

Nice, fruity and hoppy. Cloudy beer with a certain bitterness to it. Not too exciting, yet not boring either.

Hermod (5457) - Vantaa, FINLAND - DEC 12, 2015
33cl bottle. Poured slightly unclear golden color with a thick white head. Fruity, sweetish, peachy aroma. Belgian yeast. Smooth, peachy, hoppy flavor. Round mouthfeel, excellent drinkability.

vincentvega72 (285) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2015
Mooi troebel goudblond bier met witte schuimkraag die snel wegebt. Aroma van citrus, beetje vanille, brood, hooi. Lekker zacht en romig met warme afdronk. Beetje houtige smaak. Weinig bitterheid. Lekker bier !!

Silvan7 (1013) - Samarate, ITALY - NOV 6, 2015
On tap @ Zythos Treviso 2015. Dorata, velata, con schiuma bianca fine ed abbastanza persistente. Aroma di media intensità, fruttato di melone, lievito belga, anguria, e zucchero candito. Abboccata, quasi secca, piuttosto amara. Quasi nessun corpo. Poco calda. Equilibrata ed armonica.
