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.

Draught. Nice creamy foam. Moisty taste, fizzy in the nose. Very hoppy, also in the long end.

@ Havregatan. Bottle (330 ml) from Kihoskh, Copenhagen (29 DKK). Fruity and yeasty with some spicy and citrusy notes, sweet with some light alcoholic notes, full body with an oily texture. The finish is dry, bitter and fruity.

Aroma of light fruits, some spices, yeast, hops. Flavour is similar, surprisingly not sweet and rather hoppy, with a good bitterness.

Quite a malty aroma with yeast and a hint of banana. Flavour is refreshingly low in sweetness. A bitter hop taste and a light tartness make this very pleasant.

wvhoran (93) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle. Golden-blonde with a large white head. The aroma is citrusy (orange, lemon) and lightly yeasty, a little spicy. The flavour is spicy (cloves), very sweet, some citrusy hops, plenty of malt sweetness. Dry with some bitterness in the finish but remains sweet.

prawlie (1115) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle at the Capital in Leuven. Hazy orange with a foamy head. Hoppy, caramel, malty and tasty. Pleasant Belgian hop aroma. Nothing startling but tasty non-the-less.

chefseanjudd (28) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 8, 2014
Totally unlike anything I’ve had before. I guess I was expecting something like a trippel but this beer only resembles a tripple in visual terms. Golden colour, hazy, with a foamy, white head. Pleasant aroma, a little musty perhaps but with notes of orange peel and thyme honey with a hint of bread dough. Taste is honey sweet and a little bitter. Light body, lively carbonation and a dry finish.

Bottle. Hazy medium amber color with a thin off-white head. Aroma of caramel, grain and notes of berries. Sour and bitter taste with bitter finish. Lively carbonation.

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.
