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.

The 2015 version (bottle date 12/03/2014) has 7.5% ABV (although some labels say 6%)

simont1 (529) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 14, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2015 Aroma of musty cider, grass, quite floral with huge funk and tropical fruitiness. Taste mimics with a big lemony floral grapefruit following up with complex barnyard, vanilla and oak. This is very very good.

Shared by Dan at the Pig. Snifter pours were golden wheat with a hint of head. Aroma is tart notes of apple and pear with grass and hay. The taste is tart pears and apples with a funky finish. So well balanced and tart. Dry finish. Oak aging is throughout the flavors. Decent carb and mouth. Awesome!

Bottle thanks to Brian. Pours a hazy orange with medium frothy white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong funk, oak, apple skin. Medium mouth, nice funk, apple skin, sour, really impressive.

No head. A little bit darker than the normal version. Incredible oak aged nose. Acidity, more rich than the normal version. More dry. Less acidity than a cantillon

RRistow12 (609) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Tasted from bottle. Pours a cloudy orangish gold with thick white head. Aroma is sour, fruity, champagne. Taste is moderately sour but not overly so. Nice fruity tart flavor. Apples, lemon, yeast flavors. Crisp and tart on the palate. I'm not a huge sour fan but this is very well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
