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%)

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2020 [Blend no° 24 - season 17/18] 375ml bottle. Clear amber with a thin foamy white head. Flavors are stone fruits, dust, funk, oak, lemon and apple peel with herbal and acetic notes. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, slick texture.

kepano (307) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 26, 2020
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2020 2014 375ml Pours darker, murkier, than I have seen from 3F before. An orangy reddish hue, like a dusty clementine peel. Thin white ring of froth, not much carbonation. The smell is classic 3F, very apricot forward. Loads of pear as well. The cascade of fruit continues: pineapple, mango, persimmons, lemon — sherberty. A bit of lilac and rose water. The aged lambic does show up in the form of dusty, cobwebby, woody attic smell that pervades the nose. Hints of ginger, lemongrass, sage, maybe a bit of jalapeno? It's an invigorating smell, like a zinger tea. On the tongue it's surprisingly mellow. Again, I'm reminded of tea. This time it's more like a Yunnan black tea, with that fuller body and light caramelly sweetness. Chewy, marshmallowy. Zesty, a lighter sourness, softened by a topping of fresh whipped cream, like lemon meringue pie. Browned buttery crust. The texture is quite flat, but has just enough tingle to kick up the sharper flavors. The ending has a touch of bitterness — like artichoke. An aftertaste of wild strawberries. At first I was a bit lukewarm on this (by 3F standards), but the more I drink it the more I peel back the layers of this complex brew. There is so much to uncover, I feel like I've barely scratched the surface and I've made my way through the bottle easily. A mesmerizing brew.

mieszal92 (2216) - Gliwice, POLAND - MAY 10, 2020
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2020 Ciupke gorsze niż to poprzednie, trochę soku spod brzoskwiń, bardziej wytrawne, nieco pustsze. Trochę nafty w aromacie.

Cybuch (2246) - Muszyna, POLAND - MAY 9, 2020
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2020 W aromacie dzikość umiarkowana, brzoskwinia, lekka mleczność. Barwa pomarańczowa, piana ładna. W smaku pełne, słodowe, lekko do średniej dzikość, nieco jabłek. Musujące. Bardzo fajne.

Grzesiek79 (6049) - Radom, POLAND - APR 14, 2020
UPDATED: APR 14, 2020 Vintage 2011. Half champagne bottle from Piwa regionalne in Katowice. Niewielka, praktycznie minimalna piana, ale tworzy koronke w grubym szkle do Geuze. Jest dosc ciemne jak na lambicka, barwa morelowo rdzawa. W aromacie juz czuc zebrane i trzymane w wilgotnej piwnicy sporo czasu gruszki, nektarynki, brzoskwinie. W smaku kwaskowe, szczypiace winno-octowe ale ze spora dominacja miazszu owocow pomaranczowych miekkich, mialem wrazenie jakby to bylo peche lambic. Ogolnie wytrawne taninowe wykonczenie, bardzo dobre choc inne geuze, mile zaskoczenie. Pairing with my easter dinner.

VDuquerroux (3886) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - APR 1, 2020
UPDATED: APR 1, 2020 Tuesday, March 31, 2020. 'Golden Blend Assemblage n°24'. Bottle, 37.5cL (2/2018 > 2 years old). 6.7%. Purchase ('Bier Market', Nantes (44), FR). Home. With my parents & Cyril & Virginie & co... online. A golden clear beer ; nice small stormy bubbly ; medium white head ; short retention. Wood, light wild leather character, 'stinky' barnyard for sure !, watery yes , light fruits (plum). Medium to sharp dry fresh sour ; thirst-quencher ; light sweet note. Lack of depth. Light to medium rising body, thin texture, average gaseous, funky wild dry sour lasting finish. Overall, very good, great ! 'Sharp wild watery sour' feeling ; 'crystalline' feeling... I expected more of this gueuze ; maybe I should have waited more time...
