Our brewmaster, Jef Versele, crafted this exclusive Gulden Draak Brewmasters Edition as a tribute to his grandfather Jozef Van Steenberge and the 230th birthday of the brewery. His inspiration came from his numerous trips to the United States and his deepest respect for the craft beer culture. This exclusive Gulden Draak combines the technology and the craftsmenship of the traditional brewing process. By letting the beer mature on whiskey barrels it gives it a distinctive and gental finish that you have never tasted before.

Scopey (9768) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2015
Keg at Drygate. It pours rich good with a thick white head. The nose is sweet, rich bready action, candy, icing sugar, dusty, cereal, dairy lee, light plastic and processed ham. The taste is boozy, sweet, white bread, spice, toasty grain, hard alcohol, sweet banana, icing sugar, cheap whisky and mild astringency with a dry, boozy finish. Medium body and moderate+ carbonation. Really messy and a bit thin. A big disappointment.

allmyvinyl (6986) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 10, 2015
Keg at the Hanging Bat. Pours haxy amber with a thin white head. Aromas of malt, dark sugars, light candy, honey. Taste is surprisingly thin, no barrel action, honey again. Light Belgian yeast finish. Elegant, I guess, but not that interesting.

AshtonMcCobb (4131) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 10, 2015
On keg at the Hanging Bat. Appearance - deep amber with a decent head. Nose - toffee honey and brown sugar. Taste - more sweet toffee notes. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - it’s too cold. But it’s good.
