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%)

mieszal92 (2045) - 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 (2034) - 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 (5614) - 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 (3442) - 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...

biilz (1118) - 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 (1234) - 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.
