COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A strong blonde ale of about 8% alc. by volume that claims vaguely to be an “abbey” beer, Guldenberg bears no resemblance whatsoever to any Tripel you may have sampled, except in color perhaps. It is very hoppy and malty (though not quite as assertive as De Ranke’s XX Bitter). Made in small batches only on the weekends, they are quickly gaining a reputation as the best specialty beers of Belgium.
Previously 8.5% abv.

Olor floral, color claro ligeramente turbio, buen sabor equilibrado entre un ligero amargor y una triple standard. Puedo repetir.

VDuquerroux (2001) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - FEB 1, 2018
Monday, January 30, 2018. Bottle, 33cL. 8%. Purchase ("La Minute Blonde", @Châtellerault, FR). Home. A sparkling golden beer with brown hues ; light hazy by many tiny yeast sediments ; medium retention. Light biscuit, caramel note, herbal note, alcohol+, lemon fruity notes ; rough harsh feeling. Medium dry bitter warming, light sweet. Good body, thin texture, average gaseous, sweet strong light dry finish. Overall, correct ; a bit rough around the edges. I will taste this beer again.

Extremely well balanced with the unusual taste of celery in the front, but in a good way (even though it might not sound like it!) There is some sweetness, but not even slightly cloying. There are notes of spruce, plaster, oats and figs. Outstanding product.

panda_brewmaster (232) - Bournemouth, Dorset, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2018 Nothing special or distinguishable about this one. Aroma is yeast, malt, alcohol. Same follows in the taste with the alcohol being well hidden by the sugar sweetness. After is malty sweet and sugar sweet.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2018 Robe orange foncé. Mousse épaisse. Nez houblon, citron, herbe. En bouche, superbe amertume, très équilibrée et belle longueur. Ça se boit très bien !

4.2
Andrew196 (2051) - Katy, Texas, USA - JAN 10, 2018
Massive, eggshell white head, dissipates into a wisp atop a cloudy golden pour. Belgian yeast, celery, white pepper, light wood, dampness on the nose. Crisp, clean and dry, white grape, yeast, wood, light spice. Very easy and well built.

3.5
ManVsBeer (11487) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2018
Large bottle bought somewhere in Brugge as a present for me. Golden-amber with a head and hazy due to the sediment floating about the ale. Has yeasty pale malts in both aroma and taste, all very tasty with a small smoothness in its texture, with its strength fairly hidden by the sum of these parts.
