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.

Bottled 330ml. -from www.beershop.hr Hazy golden coloured, small white to off-white head, spicy nose. Sweet malty, hoppy, spicy and moderate alcoholic with mild notes of fruits. Also spices and alcohol in the finish. Pleasant one but everything seen before.

JulienHuxley (3344) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2014
On tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Mostly clear gold pour with creamy white head. Aroma is really hoppy, super grassy, light crisp bready notes. Taste is hoppy, bitter, grassy, noble hops, bready biscuity maltiness, very low blegian yeast profile. Palate is pretty dry, good carbonation. Very easy drinking, quite enjoyable.

Pours an average frothy white head that mostly diminishes. Body is orange yellow, sparkles are visible. Aroma contains light malts (grain, cookie), light hops (flowers, citrus fruits), light yeasts (dough) and vanilla, honey, apple, pineapple, pear and spices. Flavor is light acidic, then light acidic and sweet and finally bitter. Body is medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Not bad.

On tap at Beer Rev. Meh?!?!?! What can I say but....... Meh! Nothing stands out here, hints of yeast, very musty, kind of lemon, maybe orange, big grass, and that’s about it. This use to be one of my favorite styles but it seems boring now.

bottle @ home. BBF 2016. Dark golden color and a big white frothy head with small bubbles. Sweet & fruity nose with lots of caramel to balance it up. Medium mouth feel with a high carbonation. Notes of ripe plums, orange, banana, grass, some cloves, pepper, wet bread & toffee. Some sharp esters and alcohols in the mid taste takes over for a while. It finishes sweet with a balanced but somewhat dull bitterness. I remember this one as better when i last had it, when it was fresh.

Very smooth version of this beer. Hazy pale golden with smallish head, lots of hay, meadow and grass aromas, which carry over to the taste. All around pleasant brew and good introduction to the style.

fkoolen (342) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2014
Hazy yellow coloured, nicely lacing white foamy head. Aroma (thin) and taste are big on sweet (honey), fruity (orange peel) and fresh malts, rounded with a nice hoppy bitterness. Aftertaste?s a bit dry, but mainly malt-bitter. Medium-low carbonation, medium-firm bodied, quite oily mouthfeel.
