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%)

Pours a hazy golden color with a huge fizzy head and decent lacing. Barnyard aroma with sour apples and grapes. Taste is tart and earthy with oaky flavor. Crisp mouthfeel with a light/medium body and a high carbonation. Cork blew out of the bottle and hit the ceiling. Dry finish. Fantastic Geueze.

jahshuwuh (567) - USA - AUG 30, 2013
Cork blow off, a little hazy golden copper lot of white bubbly head. Smells of sour apple, sourness, banana, wood. Tastes is a sour rush that gives way to some oak and sweet malt, some smoke on the side of the tongue. Very bubbly on the tongue. Good palate ride from the sour to oak to malt. Enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SlackerMads (3360) - DENMARK - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle. Hazy yellow with a large good lasting white bubbly head. Aroma is sour apple, light barnyard, lime, grapes, light wood. Taste is medium sweet and sour. Medium body, oily texture, prickling carbonation. Medium sour and dry finish. Seems a little sweeter, less farty and less dry compared to the standard Oude Geuze, which I think makes for a better balance.

burgy (456) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - AUG 13, 2013
#1 Let this shit warm up! It gets so much better! Aromatics are very solid in funky tartness. Appearance pours super bubbly, heavy head, and light;y cloudy golden. Taste is immediately sweet followed by a strong tartness that really lingers.... and lingers for a few minutes. Palate is subtly bubbles and a nice finish. Overall, a taste and unique brew. Price is steep though (still worth one or two a year).
