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.

330cc bottle. Pours pale hazy with white head. It’s citric and grapefruit hops. Very malty and sweet. Finishes slightly bitter and dry leaving bready and biscuit finish (maybe from Belgian biscuit malt). Very pleasant hoppy beer.

thegreenrooster (3533) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Pour is a clear golden with a huge white head. Aroma is honeydew, more honey on top and a sugary sweet malt. Flavor is not as sweet and more tame. Some biscuit malt a bit of fresh fruit with some green fresh hops. This was a fine ale that I though at first would be a sweet bomb but it ended up being a fine super carbonated Belgian ale.
