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.

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.
