BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brouwerij 3 Fonteinen
Belgium
3fonteinen.be

Style: Gueuze

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

2011 bottling I to a snifter.

L - goldn is the word. Deep honey gold with almost no head
S - sharp lemon grass and bright acid. Soft oak
T - touch of funk but astonishing balance of acid and lemon
F - slight sparkle to the carb. Very smooth and almost creamy

Overall a fantastic beer.

Tart and funky and dusty. Sour passion fruit and pineapple. One of the most incredible beers I've ever had.
