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.

Heaven in my mouth. There’s lot going on - raisins, slight catch of coffee, rye bread etc. Alcohol is suprisingly well masked. Aroma - fruit garden :)

Bottle. Hazy amber-brown with a big beige head. Smell of Belgian yeast, raisins, caramel and candy. Very sweet with flavors of honey, caramel, brown sugar, raisins, prunes and alcohol. Medium-full bodied, syrupy, quite heavy.

33 cl bottle. Reddish-ruby with noisy, a little beige foam. Aroma: sweet nectar, plum and prunes, toffee and caramel, like a fruit wine. Taste: strong and powerful, warming, wine with caramel, dried fruit and sweet spices. Superb taste.

Hazed dark caramel brown home. Large fluffy ff-white head, fizzes down fair quickly but leaves a decent amount of lace. Aroma of sweet toffee malt, lighter fruit. Taste follows, there’s a fair bit of alcohol presence throughout.

Ciemne, br?zowe w kolorze. Piana wysoka ale w miare opadaj?ca. Zapach s?odki, ?rodowy, ale owocowy. Bardzo przyjemny, kojarzacy si? z czerwonymi owocami, mo?e estry. W smaku s?odycz, s?odowo??, wspaniale ukryty alkohol. Nie zawiod?em si? i pewnie wróc?. 30V2015

Neptune (36) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 28, 2015
Nice brown colour with a big head. Floral and dried fruit aroma. Sweet and fruity, yet pretty malty. If it’s fresh you can feel alcohol too. If it’s a bit older, it’s wonderfully creamy with no alcohol at all. Highly reccomended.
