3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light raisin, dark fruit, vinous and sweet notes. Smells quite nice. Hazy yellow with extreme effervesence, long lasting white head. Caramel sweetness upfront, with a fairly mild and lightly belgian-yeasty short finish. Somewhat spicy and warming, but alcohol is well integrated. Medium body and heavily carbonated. Good quad, the regular Gulden Draak is more rich however.

Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a hazy orange brown with a huge pillowy tan head. Nose is sweet malts, yeast and citrus. Very sweet with orange and tangerine notes. A number of spicy undertones but nothing over the top. Yeast is not as prominent in the taste as in the nose. Body is light and thin with average carbonation. Alcohol show up in the long finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours tequila sunrise orange with a rich one finger cap. First sip you’ll notice the orange peel, spice & white wine flavour profile. Second sip pulls in the twangy sweetness & dark fruit. The 10.5% booze is close to bursting here, making its presence known in the aftertaste & the slight burn on the tongue.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale orange golden pour with a thick white head. The aroma is moderately sweet. Light spice and a bit of heavy ripe fruit. Some orange peel, a bit of flowery character and a bit of soft leathery sweetness. Rich and a little bit grapey with some nice dried fruit. Would likely age well.

The beer pours a dark hazed golden brown with a generous rocky tan coloured head. Aroma is fresh bread, dark fruit, yeast, sugar, and weak spices. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with above average carbonation. Flavour is bread, light fruit and spices. I do prefer the regular Gulden Draak to this, but still quite good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from de Bierkoning. Amber-ish pour, clear, small bubbly white head. Aroma is spicy, boozy fruits, belgian yeasty aromas. Taste is sweet, quite boozy, fruity. Palate is boozy, a bit thin, good carbonation. Good beer, but a bit too uni-dimensional for a quad, lacks the complexity of the good belgians.
