Shared with JLindros and company at the last whale tasting. Reviewed from notes. I think this my my contribution (know I brought one of the Armands)

A - Poured into my Kate the Great tulip a hazy copper golden hue with a nice hazy copper gold with a one finger head that faded to leave nice lacing.

S - Lots of good earthy funky sour going on here. Just a faint hint of hops.

T - Taste is more of that super earthy tart funk gueuze that is more than usual. Very light flashes of barnyard and hay. Again, very earthy and funky.

M - Mouthfeel is tart and crisp with lots of effervescence.

O - Overall, this was earthy and tasty. Quite solid.

Reviewed from notes. All 4 of the Armand’4 were reviewed together in early 2012.

A-Herfst pours a dark, hazy amber orange in color with a large, frothy, off-white head. The head lasts for awhile and leaves a fair amount of lacing.

S-The nose is classic 3F. There is must, earth, barnyard, horse blanket, and a little sweetness you dont get in much of the other 3.

T-The flavor mirrors the nose, there is mustiness, sharp citrusy lemon, mineral, some aged cheese, and some light sweetness in the background.

M-The mouthfeel is light with creamy texture, lively carbonation, and an enduring finish. Herfst had a nice balance of funk and sour compared to the other blends.

O-At the time, I noted that this was probably my third favorite blend, but having just had this again over the weekend, I am inclined to move it up a little. We had it side by side with Armand + Tommy, and it was almost unanimous that it was better than A+T (which we all previously were head over heels for).
