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%)

Bov (13354) - Bienne, - OCT 1, 2012
from Erzbierschof - coudy dark blond beer under a long lasting foam; solid cheesy aroma with notes of apples and vinegar; creamy palate and fairly carbonated; medium-bodied and with a solid sourness/acidity; very dry and long fruity and cheesy finish with a lingering acidity

adamnowek (3518) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2018
Deep orange gold colour. Large, puffy head. Aroma is boatloads of funky barnyard goodness with some lemon and wood for good measure. Taste is expectedly sour with some lemon and green apples.

4.3
Listigovers (1383) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2018
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.

melush (4970) - SPAIN - JAN 3, 2018
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 (419) - 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 (5478) - 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.

4.2
pjotrapostou (412) - POLAND - NOV 10, 2017
Piękna, bardzo gęsta piana. Aromat mocno cytrusowy, kwaśny, trochę siana. Smak świeży, tez cytrusowy, finisz lekko wytrawny, przyjemne i lekkie.
