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.

maekchu (2536) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle. 2013 vintage. Thanks to KyotoLefty. Fresh and quite pungent nose, manure and juicy tropical fruit pressings. Hazy copper/straw colro. Gentle, light pickled fruit, dark sort of citrus bleeding on the tongue, bitter fruit rind in finish. Thin-medium and puckering. Brash stuff. A bit of a show off, too. Refreshing young punk beer.
