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.

Bottle. Hazy golden with a fluffy white head. Fruity and spicy aroma with notes of citrus, apricots, honey, yeast. Taste is spicy, bitter and slight sour. Medium to full body, lively carbonation, bitter finish.

Bottle. Hazy dark gold, little head but plenty of carbonation. Yeasty aroma with pineapple, banana, raw honey and fresh bread. Sweet taste with bitter edges. Not all the flavours carry through.

Tomy63 (173) - Clermont-Ferrand, FRANCE - NOV 19, 2013
nez fruité (agrumes, pomme), floral, malté. La bouche est très légère, très facile à boire, plus proche d’une saison que d’une belge d’abbaye, avec des notes florales originales. On trouve un peu plus de citron et quelques épices maintenant. Bonne finale, très légère amertume.

La confrérie des Tastebières de l’abbaye d’Aulps (Haute-Savoie, France) réunie en chapitre d’automne ce 16 novembre 2013 a décerné les notes suivantes à la Guldenberg. Elle était confrontée à la Merveilleuse de Chèvremont, la Achel et la Saint Feuillien triple. Les dix-neuf confrères présents lui ont accordé la deuxième place. Ite missa est. Pour la confrérie, le Grand prieur.

ChrisSc (184) - Lille, FRANCE - NOV 9, 2013
Guldenberg 25cl en pression. Chalice. Lille. Appearance: golden with orange hue. Hazy, small head with some lacing. Aroma: nothing strong to detect. Taste: medium sweet with a slightly bitter finish. Palate: smooth texture. Medium full body. Good finish. Overall: lacks in flavor in aroma. Palate is this beer’a best attribute.

Osprey87 (1178) - London via, WALES - NOV 2, 2013
Cold bottle BB 2017. Poured into tulip. Two tone orange, cloudy, sparkling. Thick, foamy, whipped cream white head. Looks great. Smell - lemon. caramel, slight yeast. Body is medium with medium carbonation, a bit foamy. Taste is quite toned down mixed citrus, caramel malts come through subtly, finish is quite crisp and saaz-hop-like, nice level of bitterness. It’s quite hop-forward and the malts just balance it out. It’s a really accomplished beer I think, but there’s not enough flavour for me to rave about how good it is.

Nieco alkoholowe przelkniecie co sie rzadko zdarza w belgii bo alkohol dobrze jest ukrywany w belgijskich ale. Tu jest troche odwrotnie, Wytrawnosc z rozgrzewajacym alkoholom sie miesza. Skromna etykieta, ale butelki 0,75 juz sa zgrabnie owiniete bibulka. Smak klasztornego tripla ze zwiekszona dawka aromatycznych chmieli. Pewnie zastosowano tu rodzima odmiane popering. Drozdzy sporo i metnosc mocna
