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.

Porcellini (52) - Barcelona, SPAIN - SEP 24, 2017
Color diría que anaranjado. Espuma blanca de poca duración. Bastante cuerpo. Olor con notas especiadas. Sabor a cereal y fina amargo, pero no fuerte,

Very light, just fresh and pleasant in the first sips maybe a small hint of some fruit in the aftertaste? Don´t be afraid of this, even if you like me, found the XX bitter to be a bit of and acquired taste this is just a light and very fresh beer. light body, thin feel, average carbonation, a very small hint of bitterness in the finish, As the beer heats and oxygenates yeast flavors also start to become pronounced.

Very cloudy brass colour with a creamy head. Aroma is some yeasty goodness. High level of spice from the yeast with elements of vanilla and orange.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2017 Bière dorée avec légère mousse blanche, un nez frais et assez fruité, une belle carbonation, une légère amertume. Assez rafraîchissante

FinnIckler (762) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 4, 2017
Bottle from saveur-biere.com. Pours clear yellow. Nose is very hoppy, grass, orange, but also some toffee and dried fruit. Palate is bitter orange, some toffee, wood, bitter finish. It is something different.

33ml Bottle at MDP. Pours golden orange, high head that leaves a nice lacing behind. Fruity estery essence, typical of the style. Sweet on the palate first and then finishes bitter. Banana and dried fruits. Heavy.

loscovar (615) - Trieste, ITALY, Villeneuvette, FRANCE - JUL 24, 2017

3.9
Idiosynkrasie (7733) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 21, 2017
330ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, orangey, deep golden colour with average, frothy, moderately lasting and lacing, white head. Fruity, yeasty-spicy and slightly bready and biscuity, malty aroma, notes of apricot, peach, hints of speculoos. Taste is dry, fruity, slightly yeasty spicy, sweet-ish, biscuity malty basis, notes of apricot, peach, hints of speculoos, slightly grassy and minimally citrusy, hoppy overtones, alcoholic whiffs; finish comes along with additional peppery-spiciness. Full body, moderately lively, nevertheless smooth, gentle carbonation.

3.8
thegreenrooster (4490) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 15, 2017
Pour is a cloudy golden with a huge white head. Aroma is very yeasty and estery with a pils type bready malt. Flavor is very earthy and rustic. A slight hop with some rich malt and a real nice yeast ester pop. Finish is very clean with no alcohol felt. This is a wonderful tripel even though this is listed as a strong ale. Very light but heavily carbonated and flavorful.
