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.

Smooth drinking, very sweet tasting beer. You can tell that it’s strong, but the alcohol isn’t overwhelming. Good for an occasional drink.

Pours a strange red copper colour. Aroma is caramelised plums and a slight tart smell. Sweet flavour if not a little light on the mouthfeel ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MiP (14001) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2013
Bottle, 10.5%. Vinous aroma, some earth, very caramelly and very peppery. Almost clear ruby/amber colour. Small white head. The flavour is quite sweet and caramelly, and quite peppery. Tastes oxidised, but not too much, and it balances off the beer well enough. Quite booze, but has a warming quality to it.

Bamsen78 (3948) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy amber with airy light beige head. Clear, spicy aroma with notes of malt and caramel. Sweet flavour of caramel malt with spicy notes and warming alcohol presence. Fruity and caramellish aftertaste with a distinct boozy note. I really like the beer style but this Quadrupel seems to be a trifle too powerful for me.
