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.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

A: pours a clear gold with a finger and a half of dense white head that is slow to fade in a duvel tulip
S: smells of oak, sourness, funk, and some fruitiness
T: tastes of bracing tartness, some oak, fruitiness, light funk, more sourness and more funk. swallow is funk and sore throat spray numbness
M: medium body with prickly carbonation. finish is drying
O: Well rounded flavors and delightfully sour. not too overly sour either so this one is pretty enjoyable. not sure if it was worth the price of admission but a fantastic drinking experience
