Horal Lambic Megablend 2019 750ml Bottle
Horal Lambic Megablend 2019
Horal's Oude Geuze Megablend, a brew released every odd numbered year as part of Toer de Geuze held in Belgium’s lambic country, is now available from Belgium in a Box. Oude Geuze Mega Blend 2019 is a cooperative effort between most of the lambic producers who participated in the 2019 Toer de Geuze, an open house which was held at most of Belgium’s lambic makers on May 4-5, 2019. It is a blend of lambics from eight producers: Brouwerij Boon, De Oude Geuzestekerij De Cam, Hanssens Artisanal, Brouwerij Lindemans, Brouwerij Oud Beersel, Gueuzerie Tilquin, Brouwerij Timmermans, and Brouwerij De Troch.
32,100 bottles were filled with this 2019 vintage, about twice as many as were for the first release in 2009. This is due to the popularity, drinkability, and ageing potential of this biennial beer. Brouwerij Boon in Lembeek handled the blending, ageing, and bottling of this lambic, which is a unique blend for every release. I have tasted every vintage of this Oude Geuze, namely, the 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015, 2017, and 2019. I feel the 2019 has very good prospects for long-term ageing, as has been the case with previous vintages.
