COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Cloudy, golden, Thin white head. This bottle of Guldenberg is carbonated and seems to be a little thicker to drink. Smooth with a little bit of bubbles. Overall Very nice!

Maakun (3397) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2016
Bottle at home. Slight hazy orange golden with fizzy off white head that leaves a thin film. Peach, ripe apricots, lots of sweet malts, grapes, quite grassy, light spicy yeast. Over medium sweet and long lingering medium bitter finish. Over medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Nice beer.

Stoned99 (1103) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2016
33cl bottle from private import. Aroma: that typical Belgian yeast of apples, banana, light citrus, spices and cereals. App: hazy golden, huge white head never leaving my glass, great lacing. Taste and palate: medium to full body, nice fluffy texture, light sweetness, light dry and clean bitter finish. Overall: had to buy this beer to be able to buy 3F Oude Kriek. So what a great surprise for me! Really like it. It’s that kind of beer that you think you’ll be stuck with and that surprises you nicely. Really a typical Belgian Strong Ale. Could drink this beer anytime, paired with a good T-Bone or alone like now. I’m really glad that I have another 5 to drink. Pretty good.

From tap at ’Butcher’s Tears’, shared with a markoijelena. Slightly hazy, golden yellow with a frothy, white head. Sweetish, slightly fruity, a bit floral and a little spicy aroma of caramel, honey, vanilla, peach and some citrus. Sweetish, slightly fruity, a little floral and spicy taste of caramel, honey, vanilla, some peach and a touch of citrus, followed by a short, slightly bitter, a little dry finish. Medium body, slightly creamy and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Nice!

Zilverenmaan (18) - Schoten, BELGIUM - JUL 5, 2016
Aroma aangenaam fris en kruidig. Prachtig zonnig geel bier met dikke witte schuimkraag. Smaak aangenaam kruidig en moutig, rijk met licht bittere afdronk. Afdronk blijft lang hangen. Voor mij persoonlijk had het meer uitgesproken (kruidig) van smaak mogen zijn maar desalniettemin een fijne ervaring voor wie van een beetje bitter houdt.

Dry and fruity/floral finish with some bitterness and mild astringency.
