Served side by side with the other three Armand'4 variants on is New Year's Eve. Served in a Drie Fonteinen tumbler.

Pours a light copper color with a huge white head and loads of lacing. The nose brings a fairly heavy funk with strong earth. Almost an "imperial" version of the standard 3F geuze. Some acidity in the background. Flavor is intense as well. Really hits the funk notes. Perhaps the first of the bunch. Acidity is low. Light body and heavy carbonation. Über solid. Love this series. Thank you, Armand. Boom.

750mL corked and caged bottle poured into a tulip glass. Bottled in 2010
(A) - Pours a lovely golden straw yellow color with a nice fluffy white head with surprising retention.
(S)- Some awesome straw and barnyard funk meets lemon peel and a light slightly cheesy lactic acid component. Very earthy and welcoming.
(T)- Deep citrus of lemon peel with a soft acidity and plenty of straw-like funk sets the stage for a surprisingly soft body that balances the funk and sourness quite well
(M)- A superb carbonation level. The soft acidity in conjunction with a balanced yet complex funky profile really makes this one and easy drinker. Slightly sharp, but never overpowering.
(O)- First time having this one and it is superb. Each and every one of these seasonal geuzes are dynamic, complex, yet perfectly balanced. Should have bought more
