Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

The Golden Blend is made with 4 year old Lambic that accounts for 25 % of it’s contents, the rest of the blend is made up by a "secret" combination of 1, 2 and 3 year old Lambic.

The exact mixture is only known by the master-blender Armand himself.

The name "Golden Blend" is not far away from the truth, in fact, the 4 years of maturation in oak-wooden barrels is making this particular Lambic very expensive.

Due to the "evaporation" through the barrels, only a small percentage of the lambic is left over after 4 years of maturing.

375ml bottle, originally rated on 25.8.2012.

Bottled on 17.2.2011.

Pours orange with a small white head. Aroma of earthy notes, sour and tart fruits, hints of oak and wood. Taste is smooth and dry with some tart fruitiness and hints of sourness. Finish is slightly sour and tart with some earthy notes. Well balanced, tasty and quite smooth geuze.

Thanks to Kump for this one.

Poured from a 375ml bottle, bottled 17/02/2011, best before 02/2021.

Bit of mold around the rim near the cork, all under the foil wrapping. Undeterred, i wipe it off and pour. Pours orange-gold, good formation of head that has an average lasting. Very tart and acidic, mouth puckeringly so but masks the flavors a bit. Carbonation is very low and the sour apples come through and are pleasant. Harshness with flavor not following makes this one a slight miss for me.
