A strong blonde ale of about 8% 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.
Previously 8.5% abv.

QcBeer (130) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2016
De couleur or/ambré, sous une mousse dense avec une bonne rétention. Arôme de citron, ananas et joliment herbacé. En bouche, le citron domine, suivi avec un goût de pêche, d’épices, note d’agrume avec une bonne note de malt qui vient rendre l’équilibre parfaite. Miam!

Arômes belge très caractéristiques, apparence trouble non filtrée, gout, herbes, et bonne belge dans l’ensemble avec un palais de pâte. Globalement bonne

Diabobale (445) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - JAN 29, 2016
Colore dorato carico, molto velata, con schiuma finissima bianca non abbondante e nemmeno persistente. Al naso il lievito la fa da padrona: pepe, floreale e buccia di arancia accompagnano l’erbaceo (fieno) del luppolo su una nota di fondo di biscotto. Al palato è ben carbonata con un corpo strutturato. In bocca di nuovo biscotto e tanto amaro erbaceo, di buona persistenza.

Bottle. Musty lemon peel, biscuit malt, and straw aroma. Golden yellow with nice white head. Lightly sweet lemon, biscuit malt, yeast, and moderately bitter herbal hay flavor. Good body. Pleasant.

vincentvega72 (370) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2016
Mooi goudblond licht troebel bier. Bloemig, licht hoppig aroma. Smaken van peer, mout, beetje vanille, brood, zelfs een heel klein beetje caramel. Lekker warme, licht bittere afdronk. Zeer goed uitgebalanceerd bier. Een topproduct.

Helderblond bier met fijn wandklevend schuim. Geur: Groene hop, grassig, ietwat kazig. Smaak: moutig en bitterig met beetje zwarte peper. Redelijk volmondig. Afdronk: redelijk zacht bitterig. Een aangenaam abdijbier.

Plovmand (7812) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2016
Bottle. It pours clear golden with a creamy white head. Earthy hoppy and spicy yeasty aroma. Oranges and light citrus. Sweet and dry flavor of spices and hops and malts. Sweetness from the alcohol.
