Reviewed from notes. Sampled all 4 Armand’4 side by side at a tasting back in early 2012. Lente pours a cloudy amber orange in color with a large, frothy, off-white head. The beer has excellent head retention and lacing. Nose is comprised of classic 3F funk, must, barnyard, lemon, horse blanket, and earth. The flavor of Lente is what really set it apart from the rest of the Armand’4 originally. It is full of bright, citric lemon like the Zomer, but it also has the layers of funk. Truth be told, it might be the funkiest of the 4. The mouthfeel is light, with moderate acidity, lively carbonation, and a long finish. At the time, this proved to me by favorite bottle of the bunch. I’d be interested to see how it’s developing in comparison to the others now. I’m guessing that some may have rounded out more nicely than this one, then again I have had the others since and haven’t had a drop of Lente.

Bottle shared with Nelson at Akkurat on 11/29/16.
Very light-colored body and gushing with a white head atop. Clear.
Wow, what a nose. As I mentioned in my Winter review, what this lacks in the sheer unique complexity of the Winter (strange fruits, must, cellar, mineral), it close to makes up for in just pure, unadulterated, bright, lambic goodness. Brett and lactic acid are intensely vivacious here, with lemon, tangerine, lime juice and hugely soft minerality on the back end, bolstering the aroma.
In the mouth it’s just about as good, with a proper attenuation and carbonation and good pucker on the end. Apples, tangerines, lemons and lots of honey, with boisterous but not too intense lactic character, adding a good deal of sourness. I can see why this one is the favorite but I think I like the Winter just a bit more on account of its mysteries.

Boutip (6130) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 31, 2016
Bottle: Poured a hazy dirty golden color Lambic with a medium head with OK retention and some lacing. Aroma of funky barnyard notes with some tart notes also noticeable. Taste is a good mix of funky barnyard notes with some tart notes and light acidity also discernable. Body is full with good carbonation. Super easy to drink with good level of complexity and well balanced acidity level.

Pours a light amber with a light haze. The smell is mineral and funk. The taste is pepper, barnyard, some fruit with a tart ending. Fine structure and elegant carbonation.

Corked and caged
Cloudy orange color, sparse bubbles rather than full head. Cobwebs and a hint of cheese, feet in the aroma, deep, rich; some bitter orange peel, properly aged Italian salame. Good body, astringency dominates, cedar peel flavor, some cobwebs.
Excellent.

750ml bottle @ Alex’s. Pours a hazy copper orange with a thin off-white head that dissipates. Nose is complex funky notes, earthy, hay, a hint of acidity and light fruits. Flavour is a lot of funk and up front tart bite, smoothing out and with the carbonation mouthfeel creates a creamy like texture. Beautiful... Thank you Alex!
