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%)

4.1
Oakes (24200) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 2, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2020 Earthy with a kiss of sweetness. Great balance, lively, touch leathery. Solid.

biilz (1029) - SPAIN - JAN 24, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2020 Аромат отличный, много ягод, что то вроде смородины и кислого компота, много яблок и сока от него, есть все признаки фермы, и сено и земля с признаками скота. Цвет немного более мутный чем обычно для Ламбика. Вкус очень ровный и сбалансированый. Ощущается яблоки и сок от него, кислота есть но не сильная и не резкая. Много сухофруктов как будто, с намеками на курагой. Послевкусие с душком от специй и травянистостей. Как будто даже хмель с сухостью. В целом, ровный и отличный экземпляр кисляка.

snowcrash000 (1064) - Cologne, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2020 Pours a clear, deep golden amber coloration with a small, fizzy head. Smell is dominated by quite rich, musty, blue cheese funk and tart and fruity yeast esters of green apple, pear and gooseberry, as well as some lemongrass, hay and musty oak. Taste is a superb balance of quite rich and nuanced musty, moldy, cheesy funk, expressive, tart, fruity and slightly spicy yeast esters of green apple, pear, apricot, white grape, gooseberry, lemongrass, clove and white pepper as well as a distinct earthy, musty oak presence and lighter notes of hay, white vinegar and sulphur. Finishes with a medium tartness and some rich funky and estery notes lingering in the aftertaste. Smooth, effervescent mouthfeel with a medium/rich body and medium/strong carbonation. What really stands out here is the rich, complex and quite nuanced funkiness that ranges from sweaty, musty notes to moldy blue cheese and mushrooms, being backed up and balanced by an assertive, but not overpowering lactic acidity and tart, estery fruit, with quite an array of fruity notes and lighter spicy accents as well as a not too heavy, but distinct earthy, musty oak presence, making for a quite a rich, complex, yet superbly balanced Geuze, with no aspect of the flavor profile feeling overpowering while still mainting a tremenduous depth of flavor. Without a doubt the best and most funky Geuze I've ever had, with a superb complexity and sublime balance.

Defreni (3917) - Husum, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2019 Flaske: Hands down en af de bedste geuze jeg nogensinde har smagt. Hestedække og meget surhed. Smagen er ekstrem balanceret og selvom pH er lav er der en fantastisk balance. Lækker øl.

4.3
Juks (3884) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 28, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2019 750ml bottle, 16/17. Pours cloudy light amber colour, white small head stays. Aroma is funky, earthy, wet woody, dried apples and yellow fruits. Taste is quite sour, funky, earthy, oaky, bit tannin, apple skin, raw gooseberry. After some warming nice vinegary notes come in aroma and aftertaste. Medium body, quite high carbonation. Taste is really nice and overally it's nicely balanced, but in my opinion at the moment too fresh to drink. Anyways, aroma is allready beautiful! I'd leave it to cellar for at least 10 years. It's masterpiece, but not yet ready to drink it.

williamstome (2964) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2019 Gold pour, white head. Aroma of honeysuckle, peach, light notes of pepper and grass. Taste follows; a bit dryer than expected.

MasDen (1250) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 8, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2019 The aroma is very saturated: peaches, honey, a little from brettanomyces. Bright orange, cloudy, slight white foam. The taste is fruity, here again peaches and honey, acidity is very moderate. The finish is dry. The body is medium, carbonation is small.
