RATINGS: 859   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.63/5   EST. CALORIES: 240   ABV: 8%
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 Rankes XX Bitter). Made in small batches only on the weekends, they are quickly gaining a reputation as the best specialty beers of Belgium.

Ottima blond belga, dal solito profumo di lievito belga all'ottimo retrogusto acidulo che permane per tanto in bocca. Ottima con formaggi ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Braushop Hofstetten: Aroma of malt, sweetness, oranges, orange zest, some alcohol, spices. Hazy golden orange color, foamy head. Flavor is malty, grains, honey, sweetness, fruitiness of oranges, some spices, bitterness of herbs and orange peel, medium bitter finish. Really enjoyable.

thirstyrabbit (1537) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 6, 2015
Bottle, 8% ABV. Clear golden body, small head. Spicy aroma with rich malt, the yeastiness is not assertive. Clean malty taste with some light cloves, light honey and cookie dough. Rather malty and well made strong ale. Has a few Abbey Tripel aspects and also some malty strong lager characteristics. Smooth and easy for just regular drinking but its not very complex or memorable.

ClaudeB04 (241) - Dudelange, LUXEMBOURG - OCT 24, 2015
Hazy yellow with big head. Taste is hoppy, grass, malty, some sweetness with little carbonation. Finish is bitter. Abbey beer as stated on the bottle is a bit misleading. An excellent beer anyway.

Lore (1659) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 22, 2015
hazy golden colour, large off-white head; aroma of floral notes, grape, maybe peach, biscuit, some grapefruit and hints of pine; taste of a very well balanced ale with the same notes as in the aroma; really enjobable

Tap at Moeder Lambic, 14th October 15. Pours a lovely bright straw yellow, looks quality. The aroma is yeasty, fresh, straw, hops, sour. Taste is slick, straw, yeast, slight funk, refreshing with good depth. Lovely as normal from De Ranke

Beersiveknown (4409) - NORTHERN IRELAND - SEP 24, 2015
bottle at moder lambic fontinas
full bodied, bitter, clean fresh, malty, golden herbal, none of the typical yeast profile closer to duvel than a tripel but a lot hoppier.

puredelusion (186) - Lviv, UKRAINE - SEP 21, 2015
0,33 bottle. Pours cloudy orange color with medium white, mostly lasting head. Good lacing. Aroma of apricot, citrus, fruits, perfume. Flavor is moderate to high sweet, light to moderate bitter, well hidden alcohol. Finish is long and moderate bitter. Medium body, average carbonation. Very enjoyable, one of the best belgian beers ive tried so far.
