COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a strong blonde beer, full of character with tertiary fermentation in the bottle yet still very accessible. Alc. 8% vol. Taste: The traditional Grimbergen recipe is enriched here trough the use of aromatic hops, which gives the beer its refined bitterness and hoppy character. The result is a refreshingly strong blonde beer.

Bottle 33cl. Golden with a white head. Aroma is very subtle, some wheat and to me of a sort of saison style. High carbonized, and rich tast which also reveils hops. Rather short finish.

Grimbergen Gold is een beetje de Pete Sampras onder de bieren. Er valt weinig op aan te merken, maar erg spannend wordt het zelden.

Alengrin (2124) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Duvel-inspired addition to the Grimbergen range since 2008. Snow white, sticky, regular head, pale yellow blonde colour with lively sparkling, clear but misty after adding the deposit, so clearly bottle-fermented. Not very strong aroma of pale malts, unripe peach, green apple, bread, sweat, cheese spread, flowery hops and a plastic-like chemical smell. Sweet fruity onset, apple, sharpish carbonation with dry effect, restrained malt sweetness, bit yeasty, supple mouthfeel, grassy hops in the finish, medium long, also a bit phenolic. Okay, for a Grimbergen at least.

Bottle at home. Very pale golden colour with a thin white head. Fresh, yeasty, grassy aroma. Alcohol, yeast, faint fruit and mild hoppiness in the flavour. Best when not too cold. Similar to the triple but with more bite.

jmgreenuk (4634) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle at The Fiddler, Den Haag. Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is sweet fruity, floral hop. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a huge crisp, sharp yeast, dry hop, alcohol bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. The aroma was special but the palate felt like is was going to suck all the moisture out of my mouth! Rather like a KLM sandwich then :-)

Marcius (212) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - MAY 16, 2014
Appearance with golden color, liquid turbid (medium) and nice head of foam. Floral aroma (hops). On the palate, a fruity flavor (melon), malt and alcohol. Excellent Strong Ale, this Grimbergen points to Duvel!
