Gulden Draak is a high fermentation beer with secondary fermentation. For the secondary fermentation, wine yeast is used. The white bottle, the black banner, the golden dragon and the red letters, constitute a stylish result that has no equal among the many Belgian special beers. Gulden Draak can be drunk as an aperitif or dessert, or whenever you have the time to sit back and relax. But this barley wine is also perfect with and in stews, especially the Ghent variety. It is also a plus in sauces for red meat, such as a bordelaise. It is particularly suited as a dessert beer, especially in combination with dark chocolate.

A real favourite of mine. Festive aromas of treacle ginger cake and a warming, satisfying taste.

Mooi donker amber bier. Schuim en koolzuur hetzelfde als de quadrupel. De quadrupel is echter qua smaak veel completer.

yeah yeah, I know, itís brown sugar water ... but itís great! :-) It has a high alcohol percentage, but you donít taste it. fortunately you drink this slowly, because you pause after every sip to enjoy ;-)

pityu (681) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 16, 2016
Bottle - Deep amber/light brown colour, small but stable beige head. intense fruity aromas of red berries, plum, dates, some cereals, caramel, milk chocolate, brown sugar, raisins and some spices. Taste is complex, peach, apple, toffee, some honey, dried plum, candies, brown sugar, grapes. Well balanced sweetness and fruitiness, with some herbal bitterness and slightly dry finish, alcoholic warmth and complex fruitiness. Full body, moderate carbonation, oily mouthfeel, nice fruity finish. Great beer.

Flesje thuis gedronken. Robijnrood helder bier met kleine schuimkraag. Aroma is zoet en dropachtig. Dit komt ook in de smaak naar boven. Smaak ebt snel weg. .
