COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Golden Blend is made with 4 year old Lambic that accounts for 25 % of its 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%)

Gerbeer (3530) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - OCT 7, 2012
375 ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a ton of carbonation and huge head. Cork popped out of the bottle as soon as the cage was off... Sour aroma with notes of wood barrels, lemons, and peaches. A perfect blend. Sour but not overly so. A mix of flavors: Ripe stoned fruit, citrus, light wood, and plum skins. Excellent.

Perfect.....nothing less! It seems like the age of the 2011 is very right at the moment. Everything is in play and in perfect balance. Beautiful light but very deep amber body...the deepest and most complex nose of any Oude Geuze I remember having tasted....the body so well balanced and so drinkable.....the finest of any drinking experiences....the finest of any artistic experiences.....thanks

ComradeK (1198) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2017
375ml bottle. Pours a hazy ruby gold, with a smallish off-white head, which lasts well and leaves a little lacing. Leather, oak, sour cherry and citrus peel make for an enticing aroma. Strong sourness up front offers sour cherry and grapefruit, leading into a woody, leathery mid-palate. The finish is fresh and sour, with floral notes. As always with 3 Fonteinen, this is exceptionally delicious.
