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.

rauchbier (3808) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2016
Bottle, from Lidl. Amber gold, fluffy and sustained white head, gentle condition. Spirity nose, with hints of esters, honey and fruit, some muted marzipan and a hint of yeast. Alcoholic and warming in the mouth, with a touch of woody earthiness and a solid malty sweetness, theres a little bitterness but not enough to give balance, a little fruity yeastiness comes through with time but the alcohol numbs the tongue somewhat and masks a lot of the nuances. Finish is warming and spirity with lots of retronasal alcohol and a touch of vinous fruitiness, some dry yeastiness lingering.

OminouSC2 (462) - Mora, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2016
Amber color. Malty, rich armoas of caramel, hard candy and fruits. Taste is toffee, apricot and yeast, some spices.. Too much on the sweet side.

Garrold (4344) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2016
Bottle. Lidl. Amber colour. Light haze. Good, foamy, lasting, off white head. Nose has ripe pear. Caramel. Raisins. Sweet and nutty. Prunes and dates, and the like. Smells great. Taste is sticky, vine fruit sweet. Some nutty dryness. Decent mouthfeel. Soft and foamy. Drinks well under the ABV. Some light bitterness on the finish. Sticky, fruity sweetness throughout. Factor in the price, and this is a belter.

EvNa (126) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2016
Bottle. Color goldbrown. Nice head. Taste sweet, yeast, alcohol. Pretty much co2. A bit flat taste for a quadrupel. Overall a nice beer to drink once in a while.

sinte (500) - Udine, ITALY - JUN 16, 2016
Bottle 0.33L. Clear copper body with a large, creamy, off-white head, fully lasting with nice lacing; high density of small bubbles. Moderate malty (caramel) and light-to-moderate hoppy (herbal) aroma with notes of fruits, spices and alcohol. Moderate-to-heavy sweet and moderate bitter flavour. Light-to-medium body with watery-to-oily texture; average carbonation; moderate-to-heavy alcoholic warming in the finish that slightly ruins the overall impression.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2016 Bouteille de 33cl - Aussi forte qu?un dragon (quadrupède majestueux) se préparant pour son baptême de lair, malheureusement son taux d?alcoolémie l?empêchera de dépasser les 9000 pieds.
