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.

Tons of carbonation; cork flew off like a rocket, cage actually broke. Enormous fluffy white head. Brew is a beautiful hazy copper-orange-gold, translucent. Great head retention, and fluffy chunks of lacing.

Sharp, sweet, and musty yeast aroma, tart and funky. Fairly neutral, with a hint of citrus and wheat.

Extremely tart and crisp, funky shifting to a flat, musty funk at the end. Slight BPA or Saison sweetness and straw flavor behind. Citrus, and very obvious oak notes. Delicious!

Lively and tart mouthfeel, very drinkable but medium overall. Long semi-dry finish.

This is fantastic, probably the best geuze I've had yet.

3 year old bottle.
