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.

the aroma of caramel, fruits and wine... the taste is rich - caramel with wine shades and notes of dark fruits and vinegar... rather pretty, but worse than the original one...

Jamedra (722) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 30, 2014
Láhev 330 ml. Aroma je lehce kvasnicové s jemným vanilkovým nádechem. Pěna je bílá, jemná, vysoká a držící. barva samotného piva je opálová a kalná. Chuť je výrazně alkoholově palčivá s lehkým ovocným nádechem, finiš alkoholový a držící. V ústech pivo působí mohutně, má silný říz a je hůře pitelné. Jedná se o velmi zajímavé mohutné pivo, které stejné tak jako jeho bílí protějšek je vhodnější spíše ke klidnému popíjení.

Cerveja com 10,2% de álcool, com coloração caramelo, alta carbonacao, sabor e aroma de caramelo e cevada, com uma boa produção de espuma. Cerveja levemente adocicada com um fundo amargo. Esse conjunto de características a conferem uma ótima palatabilidade.

kacyper (1075) - Leczna/Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 20, 2014
330 ml, bottle. Piana spora ale szybko opada. Kolor bursztynowy, mętne. Aromaty owocowe, herbaciane, alkoholowe, drożdżowe, słodowe. W smaku bardzo alkoholowe ale mocno to nie przeszkadza, lekko kwaśnawe.
