This Goudenband beer is a very famous Belgian beer. This classic beer might be one of the world’s most complex beers. It is based on Oudenaards Brown beer. This mixed fermented brew then matures for 4 to even 12 months in the Liefmans cellars.
Afterwards Liefmans starts cutting the mature brews till Goudenband is created. By doing so, Liefmans actually makes sure every edition is unique. We advise to keep this provision beer in your cellar. So this beer can mature a bit more.

So if it comes in a paper bag is it malt liquor? Or because it’s a fancy paper bag it’s something high end? Well it’s Belgian ennyweighs yakno. Let it breathe for a bit, then pour.... This has modest head, grows a bit, and a dark brown body with heavy Lambic carbonation. Grape, fruity esters, graham cracker, furniture varnish on the nose with hints of rhubarb. Flavour is sweet oak with cherries, more rhubarb, faint lambic funk. Good sharp finish. Lots of sweetness but not overly cloying - this is a great balanced beer, good sweetness that n00bs to Belgian styles would like. If I was destitute and homeless I’d pick this beer in a paper bag fo shizzles.

Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a deep brown with some mahogany highlights. Green apple, cherry and muscat on the nose with a light bit of oak. Nose is very vinous. Above average carbonation with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Finish has some dates and more cherry, muscat and a hint of oak and vanilla. A Belgian classic, very drinkable and enjoyable sour. Pairs well with food too.

Bottle. Pours deep brown with small head. Aroma is cherry and oak. Taste is dominated by cherry, but oak, malt and some spices is also present. A good one because its not to sour or as some others, just sour.
