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%)

Vignale (4053) - Malmö, - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle from Etre Gourmet. Dark straw coloured, clear, little head. Typical geuze scents that grow as it’s warming, stable, wet horse blanket, wet barrel wood, apple vinegar and tart appes. The taste is perfectly balanced, sweet and sourness in harmony, tartness, wet wood and a barn charcter more clear than in other geuzes I’ve had. Fantastic!

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

Hoprider (745) - DENMARK - OCT 24, 2017
12/03/14 bottle. Pours a deep golden lightly unclear colour. Bursting aroma of funk, cheese, staple, Apple, leather, citrus and very light vinegar. Really thrilling aroma. Taste is super rich with cheese, hay and cooked apples, sharp citrus too, finishes minerally and the aftertaste is maybe not the most lasting of aftertastes. Really good stuff.
