Thanks to Dan and Mike. 750ml bottle into 3 Fonteinen stemware. Shared with schen9303.
Pours a massive, 3.5 finger foamy white head that dissipates quickly. Beer is a clear light orange-bronze. Lacing is spotty and sparse with little sticky but slick, oily legs. Solid.
Nose is dried hay, cheese, light spritzy tartness mixed with lemon, rotting wood, slight sulfur and cobwebs. Like a dry, sun-beaten musty attic. Exactly what I want this style to smell like. Aromatic too!
Opens with a slight tart hop bitterness. Dried wood, hay and an accented tartness in the middle. Lemon rind with hints of cobwebs and oak mixed with apricot and citrus. Ends dry with hay, oak and more lemon on the end. Tart, puckering, dry aftertaste. Excellent.
Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and goes down aggressive, dry and puckering. Dry finish with a bone dry, filmy aftertaste. Awesome.
This is an outstanding beer and certainly one of the best in its style... which is saying a lot. It'll age like a dream too. Seek 'em out and sit on 'em!

Armand 4 Oude Geuze
Dec 25, 2013 into Duvel tulip
Hazy orange body that cannot see through. 1 -2 inch off white head that dissipates into thin covering
Tart lemon funk with good sour in the nose. Slight sweetness detectable.
Initial moderate to high sourness that is sharp across palate. Lemon funk dominates. Also get slightly mineral hop note mid to late. Near end, get more sweetness from malt. Finishes with fleeting lemon sourness.
Moderate to high sourness with notable acid coating across palate.
Solid geuze with great sourness and good complex funk. Great balance of typically clean flavours of geuze with complexity of the various ages blends.

A huge thank you to alpineclimber for this bottle and to wordemupg for the bottle I'll cellar for a good while. Cheers to a couple of awesome traders! Poured into a 3F gueuze tumbler ...ballin'!!!
Appearance. Pours a lovely honey copper with a good haze. Topped with almost 3 fingers of off-white, soapy head.
Smell. Realemon, some pear and dank old funky wood with a bit of sweet hay. Nice.
Taste. Again, Realemon and some of that dank old funky wood, dry grassyness, and some nice old musty funk. Awesome.
Mouthfeel. Light+ body, fairly strong carbonation.
Overall. Awesome stuff (as expected). A fine example of the style.
