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%)

QuezXLV (422) - Virginia, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Extremely bubbly … with lots and lots of suds. Almost like a champaign. The aroma is awesome with citrus and wheat; very intense. Taste is bitter and quite dry; this is not a style I'm used to but it is good. It's tart but subtle and the notes of oak blend very well. Not a go-to style for me but I appreciate its uniqueness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light gold slightly hszy. Smells ridiculous, really musty and funky, a bit of licorice or some over ripe prune, some caramel. Taste is hugely funky but somewhat bright, fairly smooth, very dry. Abit of an oil in the texture. Lots of wood, some tannic character. Yum.

75cl Bottle @ LaBIRRAtorium, Madrid, Spain. Hazy golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma is brett, hay, citrus, barnyard. Taste is brett, acid, tart, citrus. Medium body, average carbonation.

beskid (406) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2017
Bottle share in Lodz. Aroma is light acid, barnyard, leather, lemon skin, pickled lemon. Taste is very juicy, refreshing, pickled lemon and aged cheese perfectly balanced with wild notes, sour taste is not dominating. Finish is wooden with almond notes. Outstanding beer.

@ Beerlovers Bar 13/12/2017. First Batch 2017. Thanks to Kraddel. The aroma is ultimate lambiek funk heaven. Nice cheese and barnyard, horseblanket smell. Profound. Taste is mild, still a bit citric, complex and floral. Palate is a bit dissapointing and not at the same high level as the aroma and taste. Aftertaste is dandelion, funk, wood, ...

Really stabelish leathery aroma. Sourness is great it is sort of like a lemon but with a great tart finish. Really great to drink.

MarcoDL (5468) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 11, 2017
At foeders. Bottle from 2011, 6 years old. Aroma of strong horseblanket, funky barnyard, mild apple, citrus, oak and subtle red fruit. Taste of horseblanket, funky barnyard, oak, green apple, tart, brett, subtle red fruit, vanilla and a long funky finish. This is fantastic.

Piękna, bardzo gęsta piana. Aromat mocno cytrusowy, kwaśny, trochę siana. Smak świeży, tez cytrusowy, finisz lekko wytrawny, przyjemne i lekkie.
