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, Marcello’s Lafayette, LA - Aroma: floral, grapefruit, lemon (hop), spicy (hop/yeast), sweet (malt); Appearance: pale-golden color, hazy, off-white head, some laces; Flavor: sweet, salty (malt), bitter (hop), spicy, orange, lemon, hints of honey (yeast); Mouthfeel: medium bodied, creamy texture, high-fizzy carbonation, long-dry finish; Overall: a wonderful beer with strong and balanced hop, malt, and yeast aroma and flavored beer.

arturmons (3) - roma, ITALY - NOV 24, 2009 does not count
una grande birra del de ranke, in linea con il suo brewing fuori dai classici canoni belgi: bionda dalla schiuma bianca compatta finissima e persistente, ha i lieviti e il corpo di una tripel, con una luppolatura totalmente fuori dal comune per il genere. il luppolo si sente già al naso, resinoso e floreale, ben accompagnato al profumo del lievito che ricorda il pane. gusto e retrogusto sono dominati dall’amaro in un susseguirsi di note erbacee citriche e terrose. raffinata, una delle migliori belghe.

JanEric (1246) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - NOV 14, 2009
Pours out goldcoloured with big dense off-white head. Aroma is herbal or spicy, with coriander and cinnamon. Also hoppy. Taste is also spicey and hoppy, smooth in mouth, good and long finish with something like honey in it, a soft and smooth sweetness. Nice!

3.3
radiomgb (2838) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2009
Golden orange, very large long lasting white head, excellent lacing. Aroma is yeasty, spicy, must, orange citrus, very light alcohol. Flavour is of yeast, oranges and lemons, moderate bitterness, spices. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, light body, high carbonation. Finished fairly quick, some spice.

Very high carbonation throughout this, very small body. Not as expected.

750ml bottle obtained in a trade with Boutip, thanks Phil.
Opened on January 25, 2009.
Best before August 11, 2012.

A light orange aroma. Orange-yellow color. A good spicy somewhat alcoholic flavor. Doesn’t too too long but a good beer.
