BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brouwerij 3 Fonteinen
Belgium

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.

Pours a golden color with a nice head. Sour funkiness is in the nose. Taste is sourly sweet up front. This moves to a liquid lemony flavor, though not too sour. Ends with a bit of funk and a dry sourness. Medium body. Overall, this is a decent gueze - the special blend doesn't add a ton to it, but it's worth a shot.
