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. Pours clear golden amber. Aroma is sweet caramel candy, bananas. Body is medium, bitter and also sweet, a bit boozy. Yup, really a Belgian strong, not the most balanced one, but it works.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2018 Dit lust ik, ik zou zelfs meer zeggen , dit lust ik ! Tournee General : Donker bier van hoge gisting gebrouwen door brouwerij Van Steenberge in Ertvelde. In 1998 bekroonde het American Tasting Institute Gulden Draak tot beste bier ter wereld. Het is genoemd naar de vergulde draak op de top van het Gentse Belfort, (Ertvelde, ook gekend van dancing ‘Paris-Las Vegas’ in de jaren ‘60 uitgebaat door The Voice of Europe, geweeeildig toch (?))

33cl bottle. I drank it from bottle (yeah, redneck), so i dont't know much about foam and colour. Co2 and body is heavy, maybe sticky to drink with a very long finish (light yeastly but pleasent). Taste is sweet malt, sweet alcohol, and some smoke, maybe plum. Good, but too hard to me.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2018 Ótima cerveja. Marrom clara, espuma abundante. Você toma a cerveja e a espuma ainda permanece no copo. Sem muito mais, uma bela strong ale com bons sabores. Voltarei a tomar com certeza

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2018 Aroma: Caramel, dark bread, alcohol, dark fruit? maybe some yeast Taste is similar with heavy malty caramel bread flavour, doesnt hide its ABV too well so couldnt drink much more than two in one sitting. A bit harsher than other belgian strongs like rochefort 10, and much clearer body (not necessarily good in this case), feels like it needs some thicker, murkier body. Not to be too harsh in my critique though, this is a very good beer, I am just comparing it to the best. Would definitely drink some more, maybe find it on the tap. Found at the Belgian beer place across from the House of Beer, old town Krakow.

This beer is the reason I hunt down Belgian strong ales and quadruples. Yes, it has a sweetness to it, but the flavor is deep, robust, and strong. It is a staple (an expensive one) of great Belgian beers and my go-to if served anywhere. With the alcohol content, you can be a cheap date with great taste. Why ask for more?

Hazy dark amber with a medium white head. Aroma is malt, caramel and bread. Taste is caramel, biscuits and lime
