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%)

Been looking to try this one. Golden and slightly hazed with a near full sheet of whites. Smells good and funky with a solid punch of acidic tones offering a precursor to the oral experience. This one falls through good and tart, then some lemons, some slight bitterness (which I quite enjoy), some soily wet hamper funk. I like the flavor of this one for certain. Nice juicy mouthfeel with soft carb and a watering finish. I like this beer very much.

pintbypint (3947) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013
Rating #2200. 375ml green corked bottle. Bottled 17/02/2011, best before 02/2021.Opened with a worrying light pop, some scunge around the cork. All was well though, a gold pour, hazy. White head fades out quickly. Nose has big lemony sourness, light funk. Taste is woody, sour, lemony, lemon candy, white grape, tangy, salty, Dry finish, lots of wood with tart lemon. Nice tingling carbonation, medium bodied. Well blended and hugely enjoyable.

Sample from a 12.7oz bottle. Half hazy golden orange color. Little off-white head. Nice, funky, oaky nose. Big tart taste, some lemon acidic, light spice. Medium body. Smooth, soft sort of stronger carbonation. Lightly sticky in the finish. Good oaky lightly spicy citric tart character. Solid geuze, although I feel like I might be missing something, here

aleksander9 (1927) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 7, 2013
Pours hazy golden with nice white head, looks almost champagne like. Aroma is full of brett, barn and lemon. The mouthfeel is medium slick with good carbonation. Aftertaste is very long bitter and funky, some malt at the end. Overall: The champagne of lambics. Great stuff.

4.4
Erzengel (9779) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 6, 2013
Tolle orangene Farbe, sauer-frischer Geruch! der Antrunk ist frisch-mild mir angenehm milder Säure!! Schön ausgewogen. Zum Hauptteil kommt eine etwas holzig trockene Note hinzu, die sich gut in das Gesamtbild einfügt. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine holzig- milde Note mit angenehmer Säure zurück! --> toller Blend! --> 14/13/14/14
