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.

Cerveja com 10,2% de álcool, com coloração caramelo, alta carbonacao, sabor e aroma de caramelo e cevada, com uma boa produção de espuma. Cerveja levemente adocicada com um fundo amargo. Esse conjunto de características a conferem uma ótima palatabilidade.

kacyper (244) - Lublin, POLAND - MAY 20, 2014
330 ml, bottle. Piana spora ale szybko opada. Kolor bursztynowy, mętne. Aromaty owocowe, herbaciane, alkoholowe, drożdżowe, słodowe. W smaku bardzo alkoholowe ale mocno to nie przeszkadza, lekko kwaśnawe.

Huhzubendah (2415) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 15, 2014
On draft at Yard House in Las Vegas, April 2014. Review from notes. The beer is amber hued and pretty clear and with minimal head. Aromas of alcohol, Belgian yeast, sweet, fruity esters. An aggressive beer, with a present sweetness and a touch of spice. Alcohol heat is a tad forceful. That said, there are some nice flavors happening here. the body is lighter than I would have expected. This was decent.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Rated on 5-26-2012 (Bottle) This beer pours a medium sized very fizzy head with a lengthy retention, transparent golden body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is malt, sweet, fruity, and spicy. The flavor is sweet malt, fruity, spicy, and has a dry finish. The mouthfeel is lively and bubbly. This beer is medium bodied. This is a sipping beer and would be a nice winter beer. That being said, I prefer the Gulden Draak more than this beer.

pictoman (444) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2014
Poured from 330mL bottle [best before 11/04/2015]. Clear, orangey yellow with dissipating off-white head. Aroma of sweet malt and caramel. Taste of some mild malt, slightly burnt caramel and ripe fruit, alcohol comes through on the finish.

TheJester (1794) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2014
330 mL bottle. (bb 02/09/2015). amber brown with a small, persistent, beige head. Nice lacing. The aroma is sharp and fairly typical for a quad. The flavour is big, boozy and bready. More malty and less fruity than most. quite complex near the end without any particularly distinctive flavours. Very well constructed.

Ambré foncé avec une petite mousse beige. L’arôme du caramel, un peu du fruits noir, du caramel, et du sucre brun. Le goût est complex, avec les saveurs qui sont présent dans l’arôme.
