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.

yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2007
Bottle. Hazy, golden-orange beer with a small, off-white head. Malt, hops and sweetness in the aroma. The flavor is sweet as well, with pale malt, some alcohol and a dusty, cellary note. Full to medium body. Shared the bottle with someone saying it was unmature, but I disagree. To me it felt fresh and pleasing. (070928)

Hazy yellow/golden amber with huge offwhite head. Lot’s of fruit with a touch of honey, malt and good solid hoppiness. Very nice...

Tasted at Vinens Verden.. Fresh and slightly bitter. It is perfekt for the sommer with it’s taste of elderflower and lime.

Bottle, 33 cl. Large off-white head that’s mostly lasting. Cloudy amber colour. Moderate malty with aroma of cereal, and moderate/heavy hoppy aroma. Soft carbonation and moderate long bitter finish. Good

330ml bottle. Coudy orange colour with a big, off-white head. Aroma of spice, yeast and grassy hops. The flavour had some sweet malt, herbs and a long hoppy finish. Very good.

On tap @ Le Poechenellekelder, Brusells. Really liked this beer. Thanks to the waiter for the reccomendation. Sweet, cloudy, yeasty. Slight bitterness followed by fruityness. Nice mouthfeel. One of my favorite I had inEurope.

Skinnyviking (8073) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2007
Bottle. High fluffy but long lasting white head. Hazy light yellow body. Sweet and malty aroma with a good deal of alcohol as well. Far more pleasant and smooth and round than expected. Mild and fruity with just a hint of the alcohol. Pleasant surprise. Low carbonation and a long and dry hoppy aftertaste.

Pours a clouded gold amber with a minimal white head. Nose is sugary sweet with some hops and citrus. Flavor starts off as fairly bitter but smooths out as it goes on. Though as you go on there seems to be a more bitter aftertaste that hits you in the back of the mouth. Feel is very smooth. Nice silky texture with a good level of bubble to back it up. Drinkable, yes. I can’t classify this as a stellar brew, but it is still good. De Ranke does another good job here and I am glad to try it.
