I've had this beer on several occasions and it was fairly bitter and boring. It didn't have a lot of the funk I was expecting and there was not enough tartness to balance out the bitterness.

750ml bottle, dated 2.17.11 poured into a Drie Fonteinen Fountain tumbler. Enjoyed on 3.7.2015, reviewed from Tasting Journal.


The beer pours a hazy copper color, orange and amber hues, huge fluffy off-white head, billowy and lively with excellent retention that yields spots of lace. The aroma is really heavy on the barnyard, super funky, dirty, musty, bitter citrus, earthy dry leaves, straw, cracked wheat, light pitted fruit, very nice balance between the bright and the earthy. The flavors are really tart yet minerally, grapefruit peel, dry fall leaves, big barnyard funk, earthy wheat, light fruitiness, really dirty and earthy. The mouthfeel is wonderful, super lively and carbonated, but soft and gentle coating texture, medium body, creamy soft finish with a light spritz.


Verdict: A very, very nice gueuze from both Armand and Tomme Arthur, really rustic and earthy but with just enough balancing brightness. It reminds me so much of Armand'4 Herfst, has a lot of that Autumn character with the dry leaves and crusty wheat. A delicious beer that any lambic lover would savor.
