COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A strong blonde ale of about 8.5% alc. by volume that claims vaguely to be an “abbey” beer, Guldenberg bears no resemblance whatsoever to any Tripel you may have sampled, except in color perhaps. It is very hoppy and malty (though not quite as assertive as De Ranke’s XX Bitter). Made in small batches only on the weekends, they are quickly gaining a reputation as the best specialty beers of Belgium.

jamaty (1242) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 9, 2015
Bonito color dorado amarillento. Turbia. Buena espuma, persistente. Aroma lupulado, cítrico y espciado. Excelente textura, de gran suavidad. Gran sabor, también lupulado, con predominio de naranja, frutal y malteada. Compleja con final mínimamente dulce. Esconde bien el alcohol. Es una tripel diferente y muy buena.

Clear orange color with some foam. The smell is light and a bit sour milky with hints of bitterness. The taste is light sour, not too special, quite spicy and herbal. The aftertaste is smooth and a little dry.
