I prefer it’s brother, the regular one. This one is quite malty and not as well balanced in flavor. Quite boozy actually. Too much carbonation too. Lacks flavor body.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared with Jed on the porch, thanks Julie. Malty, caramelly, boozy. Tons of Belgian yeast esters and phenols: overripe fruit, black pepper, clove, bubblegum, banana. Medium body, intensely fizzy carbonation, lingering sweetness which eventually dried out at the finish. A fairly tasty, true-to-style quad, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as the original Gulden Draak.

330ml bottle. Rich carbonated amber, with a frothy pale gold head. Aromas of apple, raspberries, sweet granola, bread, and haylage. The flavour is similarly sweet and grainy, with honeyed bread and a touch of liquor burn on the aftertaste.

330ml bottle, best before 2017-07-10. Pour likely hazy and orange copper with a very frizzy white foam that leave my sight pretty fast. Aroma of caramel malt, brown sugar and yeast. Sugar, alcohol and tasty yeast share the stage for this wonderful quad. Medium to full body, oily and normal carbonation for the style. Nice long and enjoyable brown sugar finish.

Schönes dunkles Bernstein mit dichtem weißem Schaum. Süßer, malziger recht schwerer Körper, wärmend alkoholisch. Stimme von Karamell, gebranntem Zucker, zuckerwatte, etwas Rote Fruchte und Hefe. Kein einfaches Bier, etwas sperrig aber gut.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
33 cl bottle served in La Trappe chalice. Pours cloudy reddish amber with a large good-lacing non-lasting off-white head. Subtle and diverse aromas that increase with temperature: berries (redcurrant, cranberry, some cherry, some plum) and roses. Also chocolate, tobacco, butterscotch. Quite powerful in the mouth, high carb. Tasty, crisp, nice acidity, fantastic umami (pair it with shellfish and see how you like it), no bitterness. Not as long as other quadrupels, but very nice.
