COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

De Gulden Draak 9000 is een echt prachtig bier. Mooie fruitige pittige aanzet met lange zuur zoete afdronk. Mooie balans en warme gloed inde mond. Een bier waar de hergisting in de fles werd gedaan met wijn gist. Een bier voor de liefhebber hemels ---Rated By the Belleketels

I rarely get a chance to drink a true Belgian Quadruple, so I was very happy to enjoy this one. It is really tough, full of amazing flavors. A harsh beast!

Aroma agradable y fresco, las notas características definitivamente son frutales y dulces. Se percibe un muy ligero aroma a levadura. En apariencia, color dorado, pálida y turbia. Redonda en cuerpo, corona de espuma abundante y de alta retención. En boca suave, sedosa, agradable, frutal y alcohólica. Al paladar es una cerveza buenísima pero con ciertas características muy particulares. Tiene un equilibrio extraordinario a que en ningún momento se percibe el amargor, mismo que no debe estar presente en este estilo, sin embargo, el dulzor tampoco es agresivo en boca. La característica fundamental y única es su intenso sabor frutal, principalmente a durazno, el cual se encuentra en boca mucho tiempo después del trago. En resumen se trata de una cerveza extraordinaria y a la vez única. A pesar de su alto potencial alcohólico, este pasa desapercibido y no es agresivo al paladar. Es suave y muy frutal, situación que por no ser tan común la hace única y muy agradable. Definitivamente recomendable.
