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.
Pours golden bronze with a huge white head that recedes quite fast. Aroma is funk and barnyard, with sweat, dust and lemon zest. Lots of tart dusty basement funk, lots of floral character. Just great. Taste falls slightly flat after the insanity of the aroma, with lactic and lemon, light funk. Very nice!
