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.

750 ml bottle pours brown with a off white head. Aroma of fruit, caramel and floral. Taste is caramel, nice yeast and some bitterness.

Doft: vanilj, humle, citrus, sockerkaka, syrligt. Smak: Bränt socker/sockervadd, citrongodis, vanilj, enkel men väldigt god!!

Flaska från SB, provning med Nerikes Ölsällskap. Nästan två år gammal. Klar, ljusguldig i färgen med högt vitt skum. Citrus och örtig i doften, lite blommig. Mediumkropp. Lite utjämnad smakmässigt. Brödigt, honung, lätt örtigt, ganska snäll beska.

FunkyF (1198) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2017
Flaska från Belgoklubben. Dimmigt orange med vitt skum. Doft av skumbanan och koriander. Något besk men annars en typisk belgare.

Zymurgeist2 (2246) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 14, 2017
Part of a Belgian tasting at K&L in Redwood City. Big white head. Creamy mouthfeel. A decent Triple that does not standout in many respects.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2017 Zeer veel gist en moutig in de smaak, hier bovenop een zeer leuke hop. Deze drie elementen zijn mooi in balans. Een mooie finish met bitter.

Bule (2165) - California, USA - JAN 6, 2017
12oz bottle pours a hazy pale brown color with a bit of head. Fruity yeast aroma. Lots of fruity Belgian yeast flavor, but a little heavy on the hops that overpower a little.

slowrunner77 (12051) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JAN 6, 2017
lightly cloudy darker gold. white cap and lacing. light yeast and dusty nose. some apple and light pit fruit in the nose and flavor. Almost a sweet corn aspect as well. Lightly bitter. Pleasant but not a favorite.

LLaurin (483) - Motala, SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2016
Clear nose and hazy with firm white head. Taste is with some typical Belgian yeast and delicate hops. Quite intense in taste and also fresh bitterness. Palate is medium long with hops on the back of the mouth together with remaining yeast.

alteregoo (1451) - Kalisz, POLAND - DEC 21, 2016
Piana biała, o niezbyt imponującej strukturze, szybko opadająca do chmurki. Barwa słomkowo złota, opalizująca, z pływającymi drobnymi cząstkami. Aromat słodowo ziołowy, biszkoptowy, brzoskwiniowy, jest też niestety delikatny DMS (gotowana kukurydza). W smaku półsłodkie, ciasteczkowo ziołowe, wysoko wysycone, ze średnią do niskiej chmielowa goryczką. Alkohol ładnie wkomponowany w całość, przez co nieźle pijalne.
Najsłabsze jak do tej pory piwo z De Ranke w mojej opinii, idealnie wpisuje się w określenie "nudna Belgia", do tego z wadą...
