The "Gouden Arend" is a strong golden beer with a surprisingly powerful and hoppy character, especially brewed in exclusive and limited edition for our 125th anniversary. The name refers as a tribute to our founder Gustave De Ryck, who started brewery De Ryck under the name " Brewery The Golden Eagle"

Bottle, 75cl. It pours a hazy, dark golden body under a dense, off-white head. Some lacings. The aroma has a Belgian yeastyness, with fruityness like peaches and orange peel. Some white sugar and pale malts. Rather boring, and the flavor is just the same. Full body, nice carbonation level, semi-sweet on the palate. Nice bitterness towards the finish. Sort of nice, but too yeasty for my likings. 141011

@Brussel Beer Weekend, 2014, Deze stond al een tijdje op mijn lijst als nog te proeven bieren, maar zag tegen de 75 cl op. Nu op dit bierfestival kon ik hem mooi eens proberen in een 15 cl glas. schenkt mooi oranje gouden met witte kraag. aroma en smaken van sinaasappel, citrus, gras, gist, zwak bittertje, matig zoet, wel een hoop koolzuur, bittertje, maar waarom heb ik de gehele 75 cl niet eens eerder gekocht ? deze had ik makkelijk op kunnen drinken, erg lekker biertje !!!!!

Head is average, frothy, off-white and slowly diminishing. Body is clear yellow-orange and sparkling. Aroma contains moderate hops, some malts and light yeasts, citrusfruits, caramel, grape, raisin, peach and spices. There's also some alcohol. Flavor is light acidic, then sweet and finally light bitter. Body is medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Nothing spectacular in aroma's, quite subtle in flavors. Still, I enjoyed it a lot.

Alengrin (2186) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Luxury ale celebrating the 125th anniversary of this brewery, which was originally called Gouden Arend. Off-white head, deep golden blonde colour. Aroma of pepper, orange peel, grassy and spicy hops, green apple, bitter honey, some brandy. Spicy, quite fruity taste, nutty malt base and elegant, herbal and peppery hop bitterness in the finish accompanied by brandy-like, warming but not disturbing alcohol. Not a great masterpiece in terms of complexity but very agreeable at least.

Bière spéciale des 125 ans de la brasserie en 75 cl mais à capsule simple. J’ai dégusté la version 2013 qui titre elle à 9 % abv. Malt d’orge et maïs dans la composition. Couleur doré moyen brillant. Clarté nette. Bulles fines partout vives. Mousse crémeuse fine épaisse. Arômes de très beau houblon, malt, pain bis, miel blanc. 1ère bouche souple sur la malt et le maïs, mêlé d’épices. Arrière-bouche ample et longue. 2ème avec un mixte de malt. Arrière-bouche sur des fruits confits. 3ème où les fruits se mêlent au malt. Arrière-bouche plutôt épicée. La longueur donne un ensemble un peu plus étoffé. On trouve aussi des herbes et du bois. Mélange parfois un peu hétérogène, mais qui a un certain charme. La levure est fine, délicate, très belle veine. L’alcool fait part d’une progression intéressante, il soutient l’ensemble. La finale développe davantage les épices que le reste. CONCLUSION : une bière qui développe beaucoup de qualités mais sous des angles parfois trop originaux pour être appréciée à une très haute valeur. Une bière de commémoration, sans vraies ambitions brassicoles.

Bontus (635) - Flanders, BELGIUM - MAY 22, 2014
75cl bottle. Appears hazy to clear orange with a thick head. Aroma is spicy, bittersweet honey and orange peels. Lacks a bit in aftertaste. Something hoppy in it, nothing special. Just decent.

Dark hazy orange body with high white head. Aroma has fruity nose, mostly mango for me, caramel, candy. Taste has medium caramel sweetness with light buttery after taste, medium citrus bitterness, well balanced. Body is full, high carbonation.
