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.
Previously 8.5% abv.

Grumbo (2103) - 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.

Garrold (4781) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2016
750ml bottle. Restobieres, Brussels. Bright gold. Light haze. Thin, blotchy, dense, white head. Nose has honeyed yeast. Light, spicy hop leaf. Some sweet grain. Taste is yeasty and sweet. Some leafy bitterness. Medium body. Foamy and soft. Gets more bitter as it goes, leaving that yeasty sweetness behind.

markoijelena (2853) - Belgrade / Amsterdam, SERBIA - SEP 13, 2016
Draft 0.25l at Butchers Tears Brewpub Amsterdam, The Netherlands. 07.07.2016. Taste with Zlotta. Pour it hazy golden color with medium white head. Aroma little bit metallic and rusty, pretty yeasty on the back. Taste sweet apples, spices, metallic, sweet at the end, after taste alcohol. Nice Belgian feel.

MetalNHopHead (1697) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - SEP 10, 2016
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.

TEJA (2780) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2016
Big and lasting white head. Clear solid golden color. Very typical Belgian yeast aroma. Dry and niece malty taste. Soft yeast carracter.

maekchu (3706) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 11, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2016 Tap at Korinbo Jibiruba in Kanazawa. Nose of yeast,honey, and sharp stone fruit. Light hazy gold color with a creamy white head. Yeast, pale malt, light caramel, a cherry-like sweetness in late mid palate, and a pleasant rich balanced finish. Medium-heavy body. Very rich but balanced. Good, but not the best from De Ranke.

mice (892) - FINLAND - AUG 2, 2016
Tm alkosta ostettu pullo nytt olevan vahvuudeltaan 8%, eik 8,5%, kuten OO kertoo. Samea, vaalean kullankeltainen olut vaahtoaa reilusti pienikuplaista valkoista vaahtoa. Saippuainen, kukkainen ja yrttinen, sitruksisen hedelminen tuoksu on varsin kesinen. Maultaan ei ihan yht kesinen, vaan enemmn mennn belgihiivan ja yrttisen mausteisuuden johdolla. Maku on melko suora ja kuiva, hieman omenaiseen happamuuteen ehk kallellaan. Keskitytelinen, melko runsashiilihappoinen. Kyll tm lmpimll kesterassilla varmasti toimisi, mutta vahvuutta ehk tllaiseen vhn turhan paljon.
