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.

Sample at the dubbel and quad tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 8/19/10. Clear gold pour with a fluffy off-white head. Yeasty and somewhat skunky nose with herbal and sweet notes. Flavor is herbal with some yeast and a bit of sweetness. Nice hint of bitterness in the finish.

mcberko (20260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2010
330mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden orange with a white head. Sweet orange dominates the nose, with elements of citrus, caramel and yeast further in the background. Flavour of oranges, candied lemon, caramel, with a slightly bitter sharpness to finish. Very nice.

manuchampions (1245) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 24, 2010
33 cl bottle from 16th St. Liquor in West Vancouver. Luminous orange-gold color, entrancingly beautiful with a perfect lasting vanilla-malt head. Orange candy in the nose with whiffs of brown sugar and white pepper, stiffening a little as it warms. Smooth caramel, vanilla, candied lemons and oranges express the huge sweetness in the body; a touch of late sharpness helps to keep from cloying...very full, alcohol barely present. Lovely.

Clear gold, white head. Yeasty, fruit, pepper, sweetness, and kind of earth and dusty malt.

jefcon (1935) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 21, 2010
Nice floral aromas and a bit of spice on the nose. Pretty pour, dark golden beer sporting a tall, off-blonde head. Tasting the beer puts you in a completely different place. Rustic malts, rough cereals, a drip of honey and a hot, acidic hop. Very aggressive profile, but also well-balanced and finely constructed -- if unexpected.

kassner (1750) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2010
This Blond Ale is very light , the carbonation is noted as the overall flavor package is weak. Nice looking, light blond very cloudy, big head but missing the peppery and alcoholic notes of most abbey ales

Bontus (813) - Flanders, BELGIUM - JUL 2, 2010
This beer is some serious stuff. Looks like a golden sparkling pool of piss. No really; clear golden with a white head. Westmalle yeast nose. Probably not but that came to mind! rather dry and estery so truly belgian. Good brew.
