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.

Stine (1768) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2007
Tap at Pizzeria Paradiso. Blonde pour is thick in body. Aroma is lightly pungent with a lot of interplay; apple, pear, garlic, banana. A shade of cattiness fouling it underneath, but to a weirdly interesting effect. Flavor is quite slick and imposing, but it retains a tight balance in clove, dry grass and champagne qualities. Big sprucy bitterness in wet juniper tones. It seems to want to strike a wild pose but sort of restrains itself on that edge. Almost a heavy palate, though still with plenty of sparkle. Cool, unique stuff.

yngwie (16712) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2007
Bottle. Hazy, golden-orange beer with a small, off-white head. Malt, hops and sweetness in the aroma. The flavor is sweet as well, with pale malt, some alcohol and a dusty, cellary note. Full to medium body. Shared the bottle with someone saying it was unmature, but I disagree. To me it felt fresh and pleasing. (070928)

Hazy yellow/golden amber with huge offwhite head. Lots of fruit with a touch of honey, malt and good solid hoppiness. Very nice...

Tasted at Vinens Verden.. Fresh and slightly bitter. It is perfekt for the sommer with its taste of elderflower and lime.

330ml bottle. Coudy orange colour with a big, off-white head. Aroma of spice, yeast and grassy hops. The flavour had some sweet malt, herbs and a long hoppy finish. Very good.

On tap @ Le Poechenellekelder, Brusells. Really liked this beer. Thanks to the waiter for the reccomendation. Sweet, cloudy, yeasty. Slight bitterness followed by fruityness. Nice mouthfeel. One of my favorite I had inEurope.

Skinnyviking (9137) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2007
Bottle. High fluffy but long lasting white head. Hazy light yellow body. Sweet and malty aroma with a good deal of alcohol as well. Far more pleasant and smooth and round than expected. Mild and fruity with just a hint of the alcohol. Pleasant surprise. Low carbonation and a long and dry hoppy aftertaste.
