Bottle at our Drie Fonteinen tasting last night

Orange, mildly hazy with a dense white head with excellent retention and gorgeous lacing, this looks perfect, as did the rest of the Armand' 4 lineup. The nose is a lot mustier, funkier, sharper and tarter than Lente. Earthier, deeper and fruitier, this is an excellent blend IMO.

The palate opens sharper and fruitier than Lente. Tart and sour with lemony and lactic acids lending a brightness, this beer is musty, a little more tannic and a little more heavy on the oak than the Lente. Some toasted bread is present, but less so than in Lente. Medium-light in body, highly carbonated, this is drying and sour on on the finish with a mild lactic acid bite. Excellent stuff.

Super good-time birthday/QLD beer week lambic tasting with the only other dude I know who likes lambic as much as I do, and whose birthday it also is. It was meant to be.

Cork came out with a mighty pop and a not-insignificant amount of this special and expensive beer immediately rushed out onto the floor. Geez. Poured into a couple wineglasses. Turbid amber with a monster head. I can smell it across the room. Farm (every part of a farm - fruit, moldy hay, animal poop). Properly funky and very appetizing.

Tart green apple and grapefruit bring the tingles to the corners of my mouth, followed by a big funk that gradually unfolds across the tongue - dry leaves, cold sore cream, wet wood, mushroomy cellar notes, more apple, more grapefruit. A note of sweetness underneath it all. Not the most complex gueuze I've ever had but probably the one with the biggest flavors, and integrated to a mystical degree. Finishes really clean so every sip is a contemplative break, and then BAM.

A little chewier than most lambics, which I like, but still utterly refreshing. Really well put together. I'm not one to keep track but it might be one of the two or three best beers I've had to date.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle dated 3/26/2010. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Another gusher. Orange and hazy with a big head. Better retention than Lente, but otherwise a similar looking beer.

Smell - Bigger funk to this than Lente. Less citrus, but has more of a distinct orange aroma. The funk is like an aged aged. Very nice and distinctly different from Lente.

Taste - Heavy funk. Much heavier than Lente. Verging on a vinegar acidity. Dry and less fruity than I'd like. Herbal hops in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Dry. Cottonmouth dry, really. Puckering from the dryness, but not really from the sourness. Not as high in carbonation.

Overall - Good, but a step down from Lente. Hefty funk character that actually makes it feel a little sluggish. On to Herfst!

Opened to celebrate/enjoy my last free night this summer.

A-Beautiful pour, lots of foam and a huge head. Crisp opaque amber brown with a lot of bubbles. The only thing this loses point on here is the mess this thing makes upon opening. Freeze before opening to prevent as it is quite the gusher.

S-Lemon, grass, wet hay. Very aromatic like a summer field in the country.

T-Lots of lemon, pepper and oak shine through with a bready-wheat taste right behind. Slightly sour but not overpoweringly tart.

M-Very carbonated but not too harsh on the tongue. Bubbles tickle the throat but it is still rather light

O-This is a great beer especially for summer. It loses points on two things: the massive gush that follows the popping of the cork and the price. Fantastic but the price makes this a very rare treat. I did find this to remind me more of an imperial berlinner weisse if that is even possible but it is tasty and messy.

Poured from a 750ml into a tulip.

A: Pours a darkish murky orange with a huge off-white head. Rocky and great lacing.

S: Earthy berries, slight citrus, raspberry seed, mellow wheat. Strong lemony tartness and earthy funk comes out as it warms.

T: Much cleaner and fruitier than the nose. Tart berries, sweet wheat and juice, lemon, slight vinegar. Funk is lactic and bright compared to the wet earthiness of Herfst and Winter. Very fruity. Bright and sweet with a clean acidity.

M: Light to medium-bodied, soft carbonation.

O: Certainly seems like it could be the brightest, sweetest, and most fruity of the four (which matches the season perfectly).

I removed the plastic cover on the cork, and before I even got a chance to touch the cork itself, it shot out. Literally hit the ceiling, and a ridiculous amount of foam came out. Be careful, this is a gusher. Other than that, pours a slightly hazy medium orange, kind of like an IPA. Really big fluffy head, about 4 fingers. Reduces nicely, leaving some lacing.

Aroma is great. Big citrus and some mustiness, some tart green apple. Really big juicy, fruity aroma. Some tartness and funk, a bit of hay. Excellent.

Taste is like the nose. Fruit, funk, slightly must hay. Nice and tart, but not overwhelmingly so. This is superb, probably the best sour I've ever had. It's really ridiculously fruity, yet not cloying and still tart. Excellent.

Oh my god the mouthfeel is absolutely perfect. Light, dry, very bubbly and ever so slightly cream carbonation. Perfect.

This beer is wonderful, and very, very drinkable. It's great as a summer beer, and fits exactly what I want for the season. Light, fruity, juicy, tart, refreshing. One of the 3 best beers I've ever had.

Pours an orangish yellow with a soft white head. Nose is sour lemons, barnyard, and straw. Taste is very tart, sour lemon upfront that moves to a little vinegar and some soft green apples. Mouth is soft and smooth. Overall, this is a really solid gueze. Looking forward to trying the rest of the series.

Shared with friends at last night's sour tasting. Gorgeous pour, tons of white head and lace. Beautiful!

Aroma is pretty subtle though, with funky yeast and a mild fruitiness.

Complex and meticulously balanced flavor profile. Sourness and acidity are perfectly balanced too. A touch spicy. Really, really good.

Medium body, great carbonation. Can't wait to try the other seasons -- need MOAR!


Re-reviewed in a better setting during our Memorial Day sour tasting. Best part about this tasting was not having hookah smoke in my face while trying to enjoy my beer. <3 Armand

Bottle graciously shared by mrand01.

Pours a really nice bright golden yellow color with a fluffy white head and some solid lacing.

The aromas begin with bright notes of citrus and lemon zest. Then you get plenty of cheesy funk, grassiness and earthiness. This is the funkiest beer I have ever smelled.

The tastes follow the nose with plenty of grass, lemon zest and sour apple. Solid, musty barnyardy funk and plenty of grassiness and earthy flavors. Mild acidity in the finish.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Crisp carbonation and a dry finish with solid earthy funk throughout.

Overall this is far superior to any other Gueuze I have had to date by a long shot, which says a lot because I have a 2007 Drie Fonteinen Oude Geuze earlier this afternoon. I am not sure how this compares to the other 3 seasonal blends but I cannot recommend this any higher for fans of this style.

Bottle courtesy of PaulyDeets, shared at the May 2012 iteration of the Santa Cruz tasting series. Hazy orange color. Aroma is immediately very grassy and floral, like a stroll through a meadow, with a solid citric tartness. Flavor is sour lemon with a deep refreshing acidity and an almost minty quality. Dry and sour.

Reviewing the Armand'4 Oude Geuze Zomer (Summer) from Brouwerij Drie Fonteinen out of Belgium.

Score: 97

2011 vintage bottle served in a taster glass and enjoyed on 05/11/13 to celebrate the end of law school. Review is from notes.

Appearance: Similar in appearance to Lente. Hazy golden-amber in color. About a half finger of head off the pour, good lacing. 4.5/5

Smell: Mustier than Lente. Sharp lemon flavor. More sweet vinegar too. A little pepper spice. Has a faint and funky earthiness that I really dig. 4.5/5

Taste: More sour vinegar and less juicy tart citrus than Lente. Yeast, lemon, pineapple. More tart than Lente at colder temperatures but not quite sure which is tarter by the time they both warm up. The lemon lingers well. 4.75/5

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied (but slightly lighter in body than Lente) with spot on carbonation (but with slightly less carbonation than Lente). Dry and sour. 5/5

Overall: Not quite up to part with Lente, but still quite excellent. This beer is not cheap, but it is so excellent. Highly recommend you seek a bottle out. This was my second favorite season in the series.

Cost: Depending on the exchange rate, this one is likely to run between $45 and $60 for a 750 ml bottle (if you can still find it online).

750 ml bottle, from box set 187/500, bottle says Lot: 26/03/2010 Best Before 03/2020. Poured into a tulip glass. Me and agold drank this side by side with a bottle of Lente.

A- Even carefully removing the cork produces some gushing out the top of the bottle (sorry dude), pours a golden orange color, noticeably hazier than Lente, topped with several inches of big fluffy white head that leaves lots of lacing.

S- Very funky, earthy aroma, hay, nice citrus aroma as well, lemon and orange, the aroma is brighter than Lente's mushroom/dark damp forest aroma.

T- Starts with a nice, bracing but not overwhelming tartness, citrus notes of lemon and orange as well as some apple, the citrus is a bit zestier and juicier than the Lente. Flavor has a really great funk, hay, with some nice wood notes as well. As it warms the funk becomes more powerful and reveals some sulfur notes.

M- Medium to light bodied, has an incredibly smooth, effervescent feel, dry finish. Really outstanding.

O- Another amazing gueuze from this series, I'm honestly not sure I could pick a favorite based on flavor alone, although I'd lean by a hair towards Lente. Both beers are extremely complex and are really fun to drink, also so far both seem to do a great job of expressing the seasons that they represent. I can't wait to try Herfst and Winter.

A huge thank you Abel!

A: Pours a murky dark golden with a thin wispy head. Tons of spotty lace was left down the glass.
S: Super dry and funky with notes of golden fruits, straw, and awesome funk. Sweaty gym socks and barnyard funk are potent.
T: Tastes like the nose. Super funky and earthy notes of straw and spicy funk. Earthy all around with hints of grass and lemony citrus. Amazing flavors, super dry, with a great citrus pith tartness in finish.
M: Dry mouthfeel, smooth and light body, easy drinking and very soft carbonation. Acidity is moderate with a little bit of bite.
O: I was expecting nothing less than greatness and this did not disappoint. An amazing gueuze. Thanks again Abel.

Drank side by side with lente and honestly I liked this one a bit better.

Big rocky white head. This beer was a bit overcarbonated and exploded a bit when we opened it. If not for the overflow, I would have given it higher marks for appearance. Aroma is smooth, fruity, more of a sweaty, earthy meaty funk. Less fruit than lente. Maybe a touch of sulfer. The taste is outstanding. Lots of apple, more funk than lente, with some sweaty damp characteristics. Lots of citrus, less rindy, more fruity, a bit of lemon and lemon rind as well. Later pours get a bit more sulfer and fruity citrus. Mouthfeel is smooth, full, good carbonation, almost creamy. Very effervescent and bright and refreshing.

I had this at sour and bitter. It was tough to drink so many world class gueuzes at once :) Poured into a stemless wine glass.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy amber with a half finger of off white head that fades to a layer on top of the pour.

Smell: Funk up front with lemon tartness in the background. There is a mild white wine note as well.

Taste: Very smooth. The malt balances out the tartness quite well. Very easy to drink. The white wine note shows up here as well. I'm getting the aged hops in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with fluffy carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: Another very good beer in this series. I enjoyed them all. This may have had the most balance. I would have it again.

Thanks to Jazzpatel for this one.
Shared with Jazzpatel, Ehammond1, NanoBrew, MrHirschybar & Sebowski

@Churchills Pub

App- Top falling orange to yellow with a golden center. A small white head with a puddle of bubbles. Maybe a couple dots of cling.

Smell- Classic gueuze with a farmhouse twist. Really earthy with a small funk and a bit of grass and hay. Full on the nose with a good rounded citrus fresh orange and tangerine.

Taste- Completely damp flavors but very vibrant with a full and lush citrus. Has a gueuze meets DIPA flavor with some earthy, grassy and hoppy. A bit prickly and just short of Lente.

Mouth- A thick medium with a medium prickly carbonation. A lot of earthy damp fruits remain with a bit of a grassy herbal note.

Drink- Very very very good. Just a notch below lente in a lot of ways.

750ml poured into a gueuze tumbler.

Murky orange with yellow highlights, effervescent carbonation can be seen feeding a one finger frothy head. Plenty of lacing and a little bit of leg on it.

Granny smith and citrus zest greet you at first with notes of barnyard and goat cheese. This is a much more fruity, and zesty smelling blend than the Lente. Nice notes of haystack and horse blanket appear more as the beer comes to a proper temperature.

Opens the palate with that same zest and granny smith fruity flavors then moves into a stinky cheese and gym sock flavor coupled with some barnyard funk. Not as much of an aged character to this one but still, the quality is there.

Medium bodied and sticky with a little bit of drying at the end once swallowed.

Again, Armand proves himself with a superior blend. Not as refined or aged as Lente, but certainly a brilliant blend of fruityness and funk.

Poured into a tasting glass. Bottle shared among six of us, so about 4 oz. for me. Consumed second of our four seasons tasting.

4.0 A: Moderately hazed yellow orange. A little darker and more orange than Lente. Two and a half fingers of foamy white head. Good retention and moderate amounts of spotty lacing left behind.

4.0 S: Lots of mustiness in this. Compared to Lente, this is much more earthy with much less fruit. Lots of lemon in this though. Least lactic of the four. Grainy maltiness, rotting wood, wet grass, and forest after a rain.

4.0 T: Pretty much follows the nose. Earthiest season, least fruity, and probably the least funky as well. This was the only one that had a considerable astringency.

4.5 M: Lighter body. Gueuze level carbonation that is highly spritzy with a solid creaminess, though maybe a tad less creamy than the others. Super smooth.

4.0 D: This was my least favorite season, but it was still a damn good beer. Would drink this all the time if I could afford to.

M - Light bodied, delicate balance, good carb.

D - Loving these Armands!

Opened along side Lente, Herfst, Winter, shared 4 ways.

Pours orange/yellow with a big white head. Not much lacing but leaves some spots.

Smells funky with lemon, citrus, a little musty and sweet. Some oak as well.

Tastes similar to the nose. Balanced with lemon, sourness, sweet and funk. Someone in my group said that it tastes old. This is more mild than the Lente, less bright citrus flavors. Very delicious.

Light to medium body with soft carbonation.

Overall a great beer, I'll open my other one up this summer. My second favorite of the four.

Had this again next to lente and winter. Has taken over as the best of the 3. Incredible balance of the dusty rindy funk and bright fruits, well integrated, great stuff. Numbers from second bottle.
Drank next to lente with Armand. Pour is a slightly brighter golden orange than the lente with a creamy tight light tan head that dissipates a bit more slowly than lente. The nose offers a fair bit of cheesy funk and dusty earth notes. light mineral touch with some spicy yeast towards the back and some notes of sweetness. hops offer some light bitter citrus. The flavor is more sweet than the nose, less cheesy funk but still pretty dusty brett type presence. juicy apricots, sour peaches, light citrus and some hop bitterness in the finish. the body is sturdy and creamy with a lively carbontion and very dry finish. Not quite as complex or tight as the lente but great balance of funk and sourness. should become even better.

Thanks to foofaa yet again for sharing this one with us at our recent gueuze tasting. Served beside the other Armand'4's.

A - Pours hazy golden orange with a nice one and a half finger tall white head leaving small wisps of lace down the entire glass.

S - Smells of fresh cut grass and plenty of funk initially with hints of lemons, apples, wet hay, oak and a touch of fruitiness. This one is seriously funky.

T - Starts off with a decent sizes sour kick quickly giving way to hints of lemon zest, green apples, oak, wet hay and the ever present drie fonteinen funk. Not as sour as I was expecting, more funky really, with a bit more booze than some of the others. Finish is pretty dry, lingering on the pallet for quite awhile after consumption.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Smooth, tart feel with a bit more booze than Lente, leaving the pallet dry after the finish.

O - I still prefer Lente to this one but I would definitely say that this is the second best of the series. It has plenty of flavor yet it remains easy to drink, awesome stuff for sure.

Sampled August 2011
Quite the little gusher, I lost at least a couple ounces of precious beer to my counters before getting this to a glass. The beer looked clear through the bottle, but pours a hazy amber color that shows a touch of gold around the edges. The head starts out about three inches in height with a lightly tan colored head; the head leaves some nice lacing on the sides as I work my way through this Gueuze. The beer smells of sour urea and lactic acid, a deep musky funkiness, some phenolic slightly medicinal notes. This is just so deeply funky, rustic and wonderful. Once you really start digging around there is a dry, somewhat cracker like, more dried hay leaning grain character and even a touch of sour dough bread character in the deep finish of the nose. The aroma is really quite sharp and acidic, though it doesn’t seem to be acetic which I certainly am thankful for. After a bit, a toasted, slightly woody oak note starts to come out in the nose.

Sharply acidic tasting, though it doesn’t make me pucker, this is accentuated by a zippy, expressive, frothy carbonation that makes this foam up as it hits the mouth. Ample lactic acidity is boosted by some sharp urea notes (that contribute some characteristic Lambic notes of cat urine). This finishes very dry, the acidity is the main reason for this, but there is a dried hay / grassy grain character, a drying, slightly medicinal phenolic character, a palate lingering musky, animal / barnyard funkiness. There is a slight flavor of grapefruit, bright lemon notes and just a really big lactic sourness that is so enjoyable. The texture of this beer is nice and light, yet has some slickness from the ample lactic acidity and perhaps a touch of structure from the barrels. Speaking of barrels, there is a slight toastiness to the finish as well as some spiciness and a subtle woody note that is all contributed by the oak; the oak is quite subtle as it usually is in a Lambic, but definitely contributes to the flavor profile. The phenolic character in the finish adds some sharpness here, it is not really medicinal, sort of plastic like, but not, and I can’t really quite pinpoint what it is. As the beer warms up a fruitiness starts to come out, it contributes notes of apple that is a touch cider like, with perhaps a touch of pear as well.

So much better than the Lente, but this is entirely due to the lack of acetic acid; for some reason I find acetic very distracting in Lambics. This is quite nice, it is a bit different than a standard Gueuze, though I am not entirely sure how. To start with it is definitely quite a bit darker, perhaps a touch richer somehow, a touch more oak astringency to the finish perhaps. In the end though this is just a fantastic example of a Gueuze, it is exactly what I was hoping for out of the Lente, though that one certainly wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t quite as tasty as this one.

Due to the generosity of those at our tasting we were able to taste this side by side against Lente and Winter.

A - Ahhh, it was a gusher! And so sad because this was arguably the best of the lot! Very bright color, left awesome lace that you just don't normally see in a gueuze.

S - Wonderfully gueuzey aroma (the most traditionally gueuze-like of the three). Lemon plays a big role in there, along with a dry funk.

T - Musty dank oak, basement funk. Nice and tart. Flavors of dry hay and grassiness. Bitterness grows on the back end of each sip.

M - Clean finish, nice robust carbonation.

O - Delicious.

A huge thanks to Chris (spycow) for sharing this at AgentZero’s birthday tasting.

Appearance – Pours into a tulip with a golden, hay color. About a finger of head is achieved with a moderate pour that dissipates slowly leaving some chunky lacing.

Smell – I personally thought this was an amazing smelling beer. The massive amounts of must and barnyard funk made this one of the earthiest aromas I’ve encountered, and I loved it. Green apples, lemon zest, and hints of vinegar.

Taste – Spectacular and thankfully exactly as the nose led me to believe. Massive amounts of barnyard funk and wet hay, tart apple cider, and zesty lemons. Oak, slight grapes, slight acidity.

Mouthfeel – Medium bodied, crisp carbonation, finishes wonderfully dry.

Overall – A fantastic beer. I’ve heard debates between this and Lente being the better beer. If Lente IS better, wow, I can’t wait to have it. So good. A highlight of the night.
