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.

Near perfect, and for all intents and purposes it's basically perfect, except when you have it alongside A&T and the Seasons.

This thing was crazy close to A&T. A&T just had a slight edge but if you want that and don't want to give up what it takes, just get some Golden Blend. So bright and balanced.

2014 bottle.

Edit: Dropping to 4.95 because of A&T.
