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 Rankes XX Bitter). Made in small batches only on the weekends, they are quickly gaining a reputation as the best specialty beers of Belgium.

Tjeerd (474) - GERMANY - SEP 17, 2016
Full mouthfeel is the first thing i would mention. No specific aroma, nothing special in the appearance. Round finish, long aftertaste.

Grumbo (2435) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2016
Bottle from Beautiful Beers in Bury St Edmunds and split at the EU themed 2nd Ipswich bottle share. Pours a hazy golden colour, with a small white head. Aroma of toffee, citrus, fruit and grain. Medium sweetness and bitterness. Medium bodied, oily texture, average carbonation. Fruitiness and alcohol comes through more in finish. Very drinkable.

De Rankes take on the blonde-colored Abbey Ale is about as Belgian as you could damn well want. Gold-colored and with a long-lasting head. Floral, grassy, yeasty, and lightly spicy aromas. Bread, earth, and stone fruit flavors. Bright, lively texture. No heat or flavoring from alcohol phenols. A fairly high amount of lingering hop bitterness on the finish. Guldenberg is a fantastic choice for summer patio drinking. While its only my second brew from De Ranke, Im excited about about what they have to offer.
