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.

(Bottle). Aroma of sweet malt with hints of yeast and alcohol. Sweet and fruity taste of malt and raisins with warming alcohol in the finish. Well-balanced beer that fits well to drink on a cold winter day.

De lo mejorcito em potente cerveza totasta belga. Aromas dulces a pasa. Color tostado oscuro. Potente sabor. A disfrutar en trago corto y no muy fria. Al nivel de Optimo Bruno de Grimbergen y pocas más. Cerveza para disfrutar en buena conversacion y sin prisas.

Niet zo veel smaak aan dit bier. Dan is de 9000 Quadrupel een pak beter dan dit.

This beer is more like a barley wine, when poured it has a big, foamy, light brown head. It has a creamy feeling on the tongue, and it’s not too heavy. A delightful beer I enjoy very much!
