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.

Bottle, thanks for sharing! Pours a cloudy earthy orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is funk forward with a decent amount of menthol and some dry tart fruits and a bit of oak. Flavor has a nice acid note with a good amount of menthol and some earthy funk and a touch of oak.

Bottle @ The Levi Tasting. Thanks, Levi! Slightly hazy light Amber pour with a small head. Nose is wonderfully expressive. Massive barnyard aroma. Bucolic splendor. Manure, barnyard funk. Light lemon. Flavor is wonderful. Sort tartness. Light pollen. Acid and brett working well together. Lightly sweet. Easy drinking, effervescent carb. Fantastic. This is amazing right now.

Bottle share by Caleb. Hold color, very heavily carbonated. Sour and earthy. Some cheese. Full of flavor. An earthy character comes out as I drink more of it. Complex, sour, excellent beer.

ineedbeer (2075) - Oakland, California, USA - FEB 17, 2016
Aroma is nice with some light citrus notes. Medium light herbal notes with a light mint note. Some light stone fruit character and a bit of oak notes. Pours a hazy, golden copper color with a very large, white head that shows good retention as it recedes to the edges. Medium light lacing and small legs. About as dark as Herfst. Flavor is nice with a good herbal character. Light citrus notes with a touch of stone fruit. Good oak notes. Nice funk with good earthiness and herbal notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium high to high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice beer with great herbal and citrus notes. Probably my second favorite season but its very close to Herfst.

Bottle. Pours dank yellow and flat. Big funk nose. bitter flavors declining but still super smooth. Can’t wait to try all four together soon.

Beer5000 (6256) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2015
750 ml bottle sampled December 2015. Unclear orange body with a fine white head. Wonderful aroma with smooth and delicate farmhouse, leather, acidic fruit and barnyard. Similar smoothness in flavor, it’s a classic Geuze, still remarkable smooth and balanced. It tastes better than the three others, but that must be seen in the context that they were tasted freshly.

Theydon_Bois (18418) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2015
Bottle split at the Armand Seasons mini tasting, 01/12/15. Hazed rich amber with a decent beige covering that dissipates to a swirl. Nose is big wood must, spice, acidic tones, funk, damp hay, wet labrador towel, tarte fruit. Taste comprises funk, bitter citric shreds, acidic rise, grandads shed, musty wood, dank tones, pissy citrics. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Solid geueze, ageing well, but probably my least favourite of the series, decent none the less.
