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.

scarletfire65 (1441) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Clear golden. Average head. Aroma is yeast, pears, funk. Spritzy carbonation, medium to full bodied. Hoppy and bitter throughout. Bretty with some leathery and citrus notes. Grassy and herbal, very green. Dry finish with a touch of hot alcohol. Duvel meets a good saison.

janubio (822) - SPAIN - MAY 9, 2017
Hazy golden colour, medium head with short retention. Good lace. Aroma of peaches, spices, herbs, pepper, fennel. Unfortunately, as youre drinking, it fades and ends in cardboard. Round palate, thick and creamy. Good carbonation. Taste of caramel, fruits, spices, herbs. Same thing as the aroma, turns to unpleasant notes. Subject to revision sometime in the future.

nathanvc (391) - Brugge, BELGIUM - MAY 6, 2017
Bottle at De Heeren van Liedekercke. Pours hazy yellow with a foamy, white head that disappears completely over time and leaves no lacing. The aroma contains citrus, orange, hops, yeast, sugar and herbs. It tastes medium sugary sweet and medium hoppy bitter. Fizzy carbonation, oily texture and full body. Good balance.

Not very hoppy, but pleasant and easily drinkable. Some funk and earthy overtones.

60minuteman (1646) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2017
Bottle from Cafe Delirium. Murky light orange. Heated aroma. Spices, floral, orange, lemon peel. The aroma literally burns. The flavor hits with some heat but its not the same. Notes of citrus, berry, orange, hop, wheat and floral. A bouquet. Not as entertaining as the smell. Like somethings lacking. Very clean though.

ironcontra (109) - POLAND - APR 10, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2017 Very solid belgian, indeed a bit more hoppy than most, although I caught a bit of alcohol initially, which I dont terribly mind but be warned. Perfect carbonation, very refreshing, even caught a whiff of some funky belgian yeasts in the background
