COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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

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 (91) - 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 (1104) - 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.

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 (2940) - 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.

langeveld12 (202) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2014
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.

medium bitterness, golden, clear, white foam, a strange aftertaste that did not blow me away and lastet a bit to long. Otherwise excellent beer.
