COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Armand’4 Winter 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.

750 c&c shared by Marcus. Cork hit the ceiling hard. Lots of creamy foam. Pours hazy copper with a 4 finger creamy yellow-white head. The aroma is citric/barnyard sour. Near med body. Flavor is intense sour barnyard. Yet it also seems mellow and smooth. Amazing.

marcus (9393) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Bottle from Beer Planet, Brussels. This is an acitve brew - the cork bounced off the ceiling when I opened it. It pours with a massive off-white head that takes a while to subside into liquid. There is an intense sour fruit aroma. The flavor is quite complex for a gueuze. Lots of citrus and barnyard elements, but is still very smooth. An excellent job of blending.

Bottled, thanks fiulijn! Hazy golden/amber, very lively , firm head. Intense aroma of lemon and cobwebs. Very sour with lots of barnyard, old hay and lemon. Citric acid galore. Soft, spritzy mouthfeel. 3 Fonteinen is never a let down...

Corked bottle. Pale amber color. Lemon, oak, honey and gooseberries in the aroma. Sour flavor with lemon, oak, pineapple, and gooseberries. Well rounded. Could be more complex but the bottle is still quite young.

Countbeer (6237) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2012 Bottle: Thanks Milan: Medium airy sticky creamy yellow ish cheesy head, changes quick into a thin airy half open lacing on top of a hazy orange colored beer. Smell is a special mix of rubber, caramel, wild yeast, wood, cellar, old herby hops, some light sour sugary notes and a hint of sweet sour old malts. Reminds me slightly of the Zomer. Taste is nice and medium sour with sharper grainy notes, some soap and flowers, elder hops, yeast, wild yeast, older dried (yellow) notes and sharper sour light stingy older hop and malty tones. Aftertaste is a light mix of sour, grains, dry, older hops, wilder yeast and a light stingy grainy hayish touch. Low carbo, soft light watery light tingly mouthfeel, medium to full body and a well balanced medium light watery texture. Very tasty but not the best of the 4.

IluvatarMilan (282) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2012
Pours a light orange, honey coloured body with an usually rich head, which nevertheless quickly disappears. Aroma is amazing. Strong typical lambic flavours with some rubber, gember. Taste is rather subtle and drinkable. Nice funkiness. Bit watery yellow fruit. Not as good as its spring and summer counterparts but still very worthwhile.

DSG (12355) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 9, 2012
Bottle shared at a sour tasting at Noam’s office. Cloudy deep orange with a big stable fluffy off-white head. Aroma of barnyard, leather, citrus and some flowers. Sour flavor, quite citric, with floral notes, oak and a finish with a hint of bitterness. Medium-bodied, lively carbonation. An awesome gueuze.

hopscotch (10708) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Murky peach-colored ale with a huge, frothy, white head that diminishes to a tight, creamy cap that never fades. The aromatic highlights are barnyard, wet leather, horse blanket and a hunk of some very funky-assed cheese. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with airy carbonation. The flavor is funky and moderately sour, but also presents sweet-bread and biscuit components that serve to provide an additional layer of complexity to an already-complex beer. Finishes tart and yeasty with just a touch of toffee sweetness. Another world class beer shared with the south Florida crew by darkguardian!
