Bottle. Golden amber, beery colour. Spicy belgian yeastyness, some alc, pale malts... some citrus coriander. Full bodied. Some sweetness, icky caramel. Feels a bit too boozy icky right now. Quality of the stuff is still top-notch, doesn’t just fit me now.

Best before: 2015, but... gushing! Heavy gushing. Strange. Very bubbly head, high carbonation, amber color. Belgian notes in taste, some wine ones too. Pleasant warming alcohol note. Yeasty aroma.

Achei a Gulden Draak 9000 muito fraca de aromas. O forte cheiro do álcool também não me agradou. Está devendo também em sabor perante as outras quadrupel.

On the fence on this one. Just not seeing it as a quad. As a tripel, superb. But as a quad? No. Pours light copper in color. Not picking up any dark fruit notes as to be expected. Great beer; not a great quad.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle From Marlou. Warm brown color, big head. Brighter than the original, not cloudy at all, with aromas of malt, caramel, plums and spices, not very intense.
At the beginning alcohol gets wrapped up real good by the sweet malts, caramel falvors, with cloves and plums. Creates a warm feeling in the stomach, but the sweet finish of this beer gets too alcoholic. It is in fact not more complex than the original "Gulden Draak", but only sweeter with alcohol being too present - all in all this beer misses balance, tries to imitate the original without new ideas.
The overall taste doesn’t stay long on the tongue, but the lower carbonation creates a medium body.

The normal Gulden Draak is great, but the 9000 is nasty. Artificial, soapy and alcoholic. A disgrace.
