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.

Beautiful gold. Nose is unexpected pineapple and tropical fruits, along with light funk. Taste constantly changing over a long slow session with this one...dusty tart apple, banana, cobwebs, and bitter lemon pith all coming out. Loved it.

HopRedHead (322) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor Drag Races. Pours golden yellow with a vibrant white head. Lots of zest, lemongrass and peach in the nose. Taste is not overbearingly sour, peachy sweetness really balances the whole thing out. Mouthfeel is spritzy but somewhat delicate. Lingering dryness makes you reach back for more.

750 ml bottle from Hi Time Cellar ( I think that’s what host of party said) very musty and funky ans slight oak wood characteristics. Sours soured sour tart....fantastic. Eats enamel off teeth. Great green apple pear fruitiness on back end. Perfect example

Dogbones (116) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 19, 2014
02/17/2011 12.7 bottle. Thanks Zac Harris. Brilliant yellow color. Smells on funky bandaids mixed with used horse shavings! Champaign like mouthfeel with a lemony tart taste that follows through to your swallow.

Slayer85 (1041) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 17, 2014
37f ml corked bottle. A hazy pale amber beer, with a large, frothy/fizzy, mostly lasting white head. The aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately to heavily yeasty (barnyard, cheese, leather, horse), with notes of wood, pepper, plums and citrus. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately to heavily acidic. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, dry and long finish with light bitterness. Extremely appealing and satisfying in every aspect.

Nocturne (632) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2014
375ml bottle. Orangey gold shade with eggshell white head. Aroma: musty, grassy, lemony, white grape. Juicy and citrussy up front before a long sourness takes hold. Buttery, oaky finish. It comes together so well, my only fault is that it’s not as amazingly complex as I hoped, but it should start heading that way with more age.

mrhoppy (1284) - Santa Clara, California, USA - JAN 14, 2014
The aroma is rather sour with notes of wood and faint cheese. More bitter than the regular.The color is a slightly hazy orange and little head. The flavor is a good sour one with strong notes of lemon, grape, apricot and milder notes of wood and grapefruit. Great stuff.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Shared bottle. Pours hazy brown straw colored with fizzy off-white head. Nose was very tart, lactobacillic, with fruit and funk. Tasted very tart, lemony and sour, with some funk, yeast, feety wafts, and a lively palate.
