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.

Excellente triple de chez De Ranke. Arôme doux, levure et légère pointe de houblon. Couleur cuivre peu de mousse. Palais copieux, aromatique et complexe. Amertume très bien dosée pour une très belle triple belge. Une nouvelle référence pour moi.

Smell of belgian yeast, plums, dates and caramel. Very drawn out caramel honey taste with a bit of dates. Very elegant and nice amount of dark fruits, with a raisin finish.

Bamsen78 (3426) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy pale straw with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of yeast, hops, fruit and flowers. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with dusty notes and touches of malt and fruit. Lingering, dusty and bittersweet aftertaste. A very nice one.

@ Havregatan. Bottle (330 ml) from Kihoskh, Copenhagen (29 DKK). Fruity and yeasty with some spicy and citrusy notes, sweet with some light alcoholic notes, full body with an oily texture. The finish is dry, bitter and fruity.

Aroma of light fruits, some spices, yeast, hops. Flavour is similar, surprisingly not sweet and rather hoppy, with a good bitterness.

mike_77 (3413) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2014
Quite a malty aroma with yeast and a hint of banana. Flavour is refreshingly low in sweetness. A bitter hop taste and a light tartness make this very pleasant.

Bottle. Golden-blonde with a large white head. The aroma is citrusy (orange, lemon) and lightly yeasty, a little spicy. The flavour is spicy (cloves), very sweet, some citrusy hops, plenty of malt sweetness. Dry with some bitterness in the finish but remains sweet.
