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.

Very pale for a quad. Aroma is a pretty enticing mix of black cherry with candyfloss and a hint of hop spice. Flavour continues with a nice malt sweetness and a subtle balancing bitterness. A touch of candied orange on the aftertaste

Super carbed bottle overflows with foam when opened. Cloudy dark orange topped with a vibrant head. Lacing is superb. Aromas are nice; dark fruits, caramel malts and oak. Taste is rich, spicy and sweet with no bitterness. Highly carbed and full in body. Nice sipping nightcap here ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

StoutHead (636) - DENMARK - FEB 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color, with a medium off-white head. Taste is of hops, sugar, spices and some distinct citrus as well. Not bad for a quadruple but nowhere as good as the "normal" one.

DarkMagus (472) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Very nice aroma of candy apple, pears, candy sugar, and toasty malts. Poured a deep golden color with a gigantic foamy head. Flavors were predominantly sweet candy and rich toasted malts, sour apple, pears, and a bit of bitterness. A hint of alcohol as well. Palate is rich but perhaps could be richer for such a high gravity beer. Nevertheless this is a well made beer and certainly worth trying (and re-visiting).

Op fles 33 cl. Zonder gist een mooie amberkleurige vloeistof met een redelijk rijp fruitige smaak. Na het toevoegen van de gist is het een mooie ronde smaak met vijgen en pruimen smaak.

Lovely amber colour with a white head. Floral, fruity aroma. Full flavour. Is that pineapple? Leaves a filling taste to the mouth and a nice warming after taste. Great beer.
