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.

Gerbeer (1491) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 14, 2012
330 ml bottle. Pours a clear copper color with large frothy head that dissipates quickly. Lots of carbonation. Aromas of caramel. apples, spice, and yeast. Flavors of caramelized banana, malts, yeast, and resin, with just a touch of caramel and a bit of a metallic finish. Alcohol is right up front and hot. Not as good as I remember...

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2013 Clear amber with small white head. Aroma.. very enjoyable intense fruity bit spicy enriched with not very ’pushing" maltiness Nicely balanced. Full body. Fruity sweetness with bit bitterness. I would say st. Bernardus abt 12 little brother and that is a compliment.

JanLaursen (2731) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2012
Almost clear golden with a quite lively and frothy white head. Abricot-fruity and yeasty in the nose. Taste is sweet, fruity, has an alcoholic note and not so much more. Full body.

TheEpeeist (3175) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2012
25.4 oz bottle. Clear honey with a clumpy off-white head. Nose is candi, dates, straw and marzipan; lovely. Sticky and syrupy? Sure, but silky smooth with a lively tingle, alcohol well concealed. Taste is dried apricot, apple, toffee and grain. A sophisticated sipper.

Bottle. Poured cloudy copper color with a large frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate sweet fruit and alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium yeasty balanced flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration with a small alcohol bite. Interesting.

Wat is diet een goed bier! Behoort tot de beste ter wereld. Vind hem beter dan de st bernardus 12 en Westvleteren. Hoor dit vaker, is erg mooi in balans zeker een aanrader met foodpairing!!!!

langeveld12 (191) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 5, 2012
Spare light brown head, dark amber body. Palate was creamy with strong carbonation. Taste contained mostly alcohol, some sweetness and fruits and bitterness, ending in a sweet finish. The alcohol and carbonation were too strong for my taste, overpowering other tastes. A bit of a disappointment which may have been because it was preceded by some great other ones.
