COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Armand’4 Herfst Oude Geuze is a blend of 1, 2 and 3 year old Lambic, brewed, aged, blended and bottled by Armand Debelder. This one-time and possibly the last bottling comes in a fancy Asti Spumante Champagne bottle. Armand only used Challenger hops in this brew. He’s in fact the only lambic-brewer to use Challenger hops to make his Geuze. 60 % malted barley, 40 % wheat, aged hops and water. Each season’s geuze has an unique and different blend.

Tasted from a corked and caged 750mL bottle at a tasting in early 2011. Pours hazy burnt orange with an average white head that leaves just a thin collar of lace. The nose is dark for a gueze with berry fruit, lemon and vinegar acid, and just touches of malt and vinegar oak. The flavor is more intensely sour than I expected given the nose, with some white wine vinegar, plenty of lemon, and a bit of berry fruit, vanilla, and light malt. The body is medium and tannic with average carbonation and a long tannic and dark, sour finish.

Many thanks to J for sharing! Pours a hazy, apricot color with a light tan head. The smell is tart fruit, barnyard, some green apples, pepper. The taste is toasted malt, pepper, mild barnyard ending crisp & mildly sour. Elegant and slightly over average carbonation level. Very nice!

@ Eddan 16-12-3: lite svavel i början men sen kommer det en fin kryddighet som är ganska len men elegant.

Bottle from Etre Gourmet, bought in 2011. Hazy dark golden with a white head. This was a pleasant one, not extremely sour and tart but balanced and really drinkable. Apples, some citrus, hay, wood and grapes. The finish was quite dry.

2016-11-01, corked and caged, 9-4-9-5-18=45
Cloudy light amber color, dull hue, darker than others of the series, with compact creamy head. The Brett aroma is very strong, cellar smell. Very mineral beer, salty, very strong Brett flavor, cellar; smooth mouthfeel; some lemony touch in the final, and strong final astringency.
Compared to the others, side to side, it has higher acidity, and more straight forward Gueuze character.

2012-12-12, 10-5-8-4-18=45
Hazy amber color, sub carbonated, small head. Pervasive cellar aroma, Bretts, sour, bitter oranges, hazelnuts, sweat, some animal character. The mouthfeel is quite smooth and round for a Gueuze, yet clearly dry, with lemon juice, bitter oranges, astringent, wood. Rather long final.

750ml bottle @ Alex’s. Pours a clear dark copper with a dense white lively head. Nose has tons of lemon peel, tart, slight sourness, a hint of minerals. Flavour is sour, hints of citrus, and sweet fruits. Lente is winning in my opinion, but enjoying this slighly more than Zomer.

Pours a clear copper colour with a thick white head. Aroma of light caramel and funk. Taste is more sweet and rich than Lente and Zomer, bit of caramel, with a medium length finish. Still very good, but not my favourite season so far.

Bottle, six years after bottling. Pours cloudy golden, with an enormous creamy head. Aroma is tart fruity notes of red currants and sour cherries, red wine grapes, tannins and wooden barrels, as well as fruity brett and funky farmhouse. Medium body, with fizzy carbonation. Flavour is acidic, with hay, citrus peel, sherbet and currants, fruity bretty notes and wooden barrels, as well as grapes and funky farmhouse notes. Lingering fruity bretty notes in the finish.
