Gulden Draak, lonely at the top for 25 years, now gets company
The birthday present: Gulden Draak 9000 Quadruple, an enrichment of the Gulden Draak range.
An ode to the past and to the city of (9000) GHENT The Gulden Draak is named after the gilded statue on top of the belltower of Ghent. Such eminent symbol, that has been standing firm for over 6 centuries, deserves equally grand beers. The unsurpassed Gulden Draak as dark tripel of 10,5% alcohol gets, after 25 years of growing success, quite an addition, the Gulden Draak 9000 Quadruple.

All features of the Gulden Draak The extremely rich and complex taste sensation and the stable beer head can also be found in the Gulden Draak 9000 Quadruple. The sweet caramel touches, however, are still reserved for the Gulden Draak.

With addition of extra malt The new recipe, on basis of 3 different kinds of malt added in a volume of 4 times the content in lager, provide the Gulden Draak 9000 Quadruple with a deep golden amber colour and a fruity scent. Together with the smooth and subtle sweet taste ensures this a wonderfully accomplished bouquet.

In line with the traditions of Brewery Van Steenberge Just like the other specialty beers of Brewery Van Steenberge is the Gulden Draak 9000 Quadruple a beer of high fermentation with secondary fermentation. A wine yeast is used for the secondary fermentation, which also contributes to the grandiose taste.

Pours crystal clear amber and light tight carbonation and sticky thick lacing. Complex aroma melds honey, caramel, cotton candy, and apples. Flavor is caramel apple, and while sweet, it does not reach cloying. Amazing.

Icedwarf (499) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - FEB 22, 2015
Lichtbruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is zoet en krachtig, caramel, licht fruitig, sinaasappel. Geslaagd bier wat mij betreft, smaak blijft gemiddeld lang hangen.

Deu (812) - Nantes, FRANCE - FEB 19, 2015
Nice Brown head, cloudy dark amber color. Simple palette, strong, sweet malty taste. This is a nice beer but a little to sweet for me, just like the regular gulden draak.

Cerveza con buena apariencia espuma muy densa, sabor muy intenso en boca alta graduación alcohólica pero muy bien integrada, más fuerte aun que la gulden draak original, una cuádruple muy recomendable

Bosskie (474) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2015
Beautiful red brown colour. Transparent beer with a nice big foamy head. Smell is cherries and honey, toffee apples and a light touch of leather. Very subtle chocolate with dark fruits and slightly alcoholic. Maybe some caramel and cinnamon. Taste starts of overly sweet but falls back and develops into an alcoholic sourness. The caramel dominates, carrying loads of fruit. Almost like jam, but with alcoholic tones. This is more like port than beer! Quite delicious, as long as you don’t expect to drink it like beer. Don’t put it in the fridge!
