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.

has a fruity/malty aroma, looks a pale golden that produces a frothy head that sticks around for the whole time, has a sweet fruity tastes with a nice easy finish, easy on the palate and with it’s 10.5% alcohol, it is a good quality strong beer i enjoyed it

From the tap came a nice golden brew with a nice white head. Fruity. Malty aroma. Medium bodied with more malt than hop flavor, but combined nicely.

Tap. Hazy amber with foamy white head and decent lacing. Smells sticky, like caramel apples. Yates sweet and tart. Round mouth feel dissipating into a tart dry finish.

DruncanVeasey (7882) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2012
330ml from Arden Wines. Muddy bronze heaped with a rocky, hysterically fed Belgian head. Aroma of stone fruits, persimmon, wine gums and cinnamon. Plums, spicy yeast, probably spice, gummy tang of orange fruity hop. Mellow heat in the finish; maybe a dab of blue cheese. Nectarine and unripe persimmon again; white pepper. Big yeasty Belgian- good but lacking the wow factor.

This isn’t a bad beer. It just doesn’t hold up to the regular Gulden Draak. somewhat malty, the main notes are spicy Belgian yeast at the end though. Good beer, but I’d go for the regular Gulden Draak in the white bottle.

Holmen1 (3926) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2012
Flaske fra Belgisk Bryg: en herlig aroma av godt modne pærer, med litt malt, gjær og alkohol i skjønn forening treffer min forkjølede nese. Skummet daler og legger seg som en tynn film over en mørk gylden, ikke helt klar men fristende væske. Stor munnfylde med frukt og litt krydder (inkl. pepper), og hvor de 10,5% truer saligheten som en drage i bakgrunnen.

omikr0n (817) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours cloudy dark orange with head that has risen high and then settled into thin layer quickly. Aroma is overripe fruits, alcohol. Flavor is fruits, alcohol, yeast and some malt. Carbonation is on the high side, but not unpleasant.

pentaz (1256) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear amber color with lasting off-white head. Aroma is malt, caramel, prune, raisins, spices, pepper, booze. Taste is moderate sweet and light bitter. Body is medium, texture is oily. Finishes sweet, boozy and spicy.

AtronSeige (1038) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - DEC 14, 2012
Wow. An aroma that speaks of mystery and power, but whispers promises of sweetness. A floral fruity fleshy aroma. An amber tribute to perfection. Fizziness that dances on the tongue, long after caramel and spicy liquid has desended down your throat. A light peppery alcohol burn reminds you that this is a DRAGON!
