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.

Pours amber with a lasting head.
Noes shows heaps of funk, elderflower, horseblanket, lemon pith, kumquat, fruit confectionery and orange peel. Amazing.
flavours include elderflower, lemon juice, citrus pith, peach and a big, bold acidity. Lots of funk.
Nice high carbonation.
