Megablend

On the occasion of the 7th Tour de Geuze, a special Oude Geuze was assembled: the HORAL Megablend. HORAL has since released a Megablend every two years. A total of 16,000 numbered bottles of the Megablend 2009 were produced. The bottle with the label number 00001 was auctioned via eBay. Takayuki Yamamoto, a geuze lover from Japan, made the highest bid: 255 euros. From the Megablend Oude Geuze 2011, 17,000 bottles were produced. It was the same geuze enthusiast from Tokyo who won the HORAL Megablend 2011 number 00001 for 315 EUR. The Megablend 2009 and 2011 are a mix of young and old lambic from eight HORAL members (3 Fonteinen, Boon, De Cam, De Troch, Hanssens, Lindemans, Oud Beersel and Timmermans).

The HORAL Megablend 2013 with serial number 00001 was also auctioned via eBay. Erwin Cuyx from Brussels paid EUR 381 for it. An absolute record. For the Megablend 2015 a geuze enthusiast from Great Britain paid 300 EUR for the first bottle.

The Megablends 2013, 2015 and 2017 are a mix of lambics from 9 producers: 3 Fonteinen, Boon, De Oude Cam, De Troch, Hanssens, Lindemans, Oud Beersel, Tilquin and Timmermans. The HORAL Oude Geuze Megablend 2019 is a mix of lambics from 8 producers: 3 Fonteinen, Boon, De Oude Cam, De Troch, Hanssens, Lindemans, Oud Beersel, Tilquin and Timmermans.
