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.

Turbio espesor en la apariencia. Buena cabeza bronceada. Buen lazo también. Aroma a licor igual q las notas principales q es un licor fuerte con caramelo. Ligero amargor del volumen de lúpulos en el cuerpo que es completo y pesado. Largo y seco paladar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dit is nu eens echt hoe een goede quadrupel hoort te zijn. Echt een topper met een lekkere volle smaak.

Draught: Nice sweet beer, however for me, it is missing the carbonation. It almost has a Nitro feel which I don't like; almost watered down. However the alcohol works, and the flavor is nice. It is better than most. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap pour in tulip glass at Sheffield’s in Chicago. Wow, this is a smooth, deceptively alcohol fueled beer. Lots of sugary sweetness throughout. Extremely easy to drink. Leans into the dark fruit without erring on the side of a Belgian sour. I’m very impressed by this quad rendition.

TtV (71) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Golden beer with a white head that lasts somewhat. Aroma has sweetness and malt. Taste immediately betrays it’s high alcohol percentage, but also has a very complex sweet, bitterness. Great for a cold winter night.
