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.

UDBeernut (2003) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - OCT 16, 2013
bottle split with wife pours nice amble, slight haze, foam head that only reduces slightly from first gulp to finish. light pitted fruits, slight earthiness, wet grains with mild booze burn on finish. body is solid for the style, carbonation keeps it moving.

Very nice taste, similar on the palate to cranberry juice. Smooth, and well balanced!!

zenkis (640) - Ogre, LATVIA - OCT 13, 2013
Pours amber, quite clear for Quad, beige soapy top, min lasing. On nose it starts more yeasty-caramel-sugary but then balances to clear smooth caramel. Flavor is OK, not too sweet, could be more fruitfull, but is quite monolitic, not with deep complexity, a bit astringent mouthfeel so not easy drinkable, alcohol is well hidden. Well, "nothing special" brew.

rvdbrand (2) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2013 does not count
A very nice and complex taste with hints of sweetness. Not a clear beer, but it does not have a dark color. Linking it a lot.

Pringao_Toribi (296) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 11, 2013
A strong beer wich flavour opaques its alcoholic content, sadly with little aroma but a extraordinary aftertaste to compensate.

Staffan47 (887) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2013
Flaska från SBWF 2013. Smäller som en knallkork när killen öppnar flaskan. Sprutar poröst skum. Oron för infektion infinner sig omedelbart. Får lite barleywinekänsla både i doft och smak. Tankarna går inte direkt åt Belgien. Fudgedoft. Krämig och lagom söt. Oklart om det ska smaka så här med tanke på trycket i flarran men det är inga felsmaker att prata om.

A good starter beer sweet and sour comes to mind it has you can taste the alcohol but not that overpowering, could give or take this beer.

andriesradu (550) - ROMANIA - SEP 30, 2013
33cl bottle. Pours dark hazy orange with a big dense head. Aroma is sweet, caramel, alchool. Flavor is is moderate bitter with a long duration, alchool can be felt a bit to strong, quite acidic in the end.

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

gyllenbock (5427) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2013
Sample at SBWF 2013. A bit hazy amber with a small head. On the sweet side with malt, caramel, dried fruit and some light hops. Warming alcohol in the finish. Descent stuff.
