3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
11.2 oz. bottle, consumed on 7-19-15. Labeled as “Brouwerij Van Steenberge Gulden Draak 9000 Quadruple Ale.” Nice, full-bottle, opaque, plastic label protects the contents from light and looks good; other Belgian breweries should adopt this practice. Pours a hazy, cloudy, surprisingly light brown (quite light in shade for the style) with a moderate to large amount of thick, cream-colored head. Good-looking beer. Scents of raisin, plum, candy sugar, and apricot. Fresh, yeasty aroma smells like freshly baked raisin bread. Pruny, plummy, caramel, toffee flavor. Apple cider with cinnamon. A touch of umami and dryness. Also a touch of booze; clearly a high-ABV beer. Medium body, surprisingly light in body for the style. Lively and frothy in the palate. Not as complex as is ideal for the style. Overall, a decent beer, but I’ve had far better in the style. I probably should have let it age a year or two; I consumed it soon after purchase.
