Megablend

On the occasion of the 7th Toer de Geuze, a special Oude Geuze was assembled: the HORAL Megablend 2009. 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. 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 blends of young and old lambic from eight HORAL members (3 Fonteinen, Boon, De Oude 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 lambic blends from 3 Fonteinen, Boon, De Oude Cam, De Troch, Hanssens, Lindemans, Oud Beersel, Tilquin and Timmermans.

The HORAL Oude Geuze Megablend 2019 is a blend of lambics originating from 8 producers (Boon, De Oude Cam, De Troch, Hanssens, Lindemans, Oud Beersel, Tilquin and Timmermans).

The Megablend 2021 is a blend of young and old lambic from all HORAL members (Boon, De Oude Cam, De Troch, Hanssens, Tilquin, Lambiek Fabriek, Lindemans, Mort Subite, Oud Beersel and Timmermans).

On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the brewers' association and the 14th Toer de Geuze, the HORAL members have created the HORAL Megablend 2022. It is the 8th Megablend in a row. All 11 HORAL members (Boon, De Oude Cam, De Troch, Den Herberg, Hanssens, Lambiek Fabriek, Lindemans, Mort Subite, Oud Beersel, Tilquin and Timmermans) have contributed by delivering an amount of lambic. 29,300 bottles were filled. The outside was printed with a festive tricolor design. On the front are the HORAL logo, the names of all manufacturers, the date 1997-2022, a flag with the number 25 and the European Traditional Speciality Guaranteed label. This Limited Edition is available at specialist beverage retailers.
