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.

BoydJustitz (58) - Maryland, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Opaque orange with medium head. Less fruity than typical Belgian Abbey triple/Abt. Aroma citrus. Medium body. Quite carbonated. Flavors of wheat, citrus, mellow fruit. Quite subtle & pleasant, not overwhelming.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2018 Nothing special or distinguishable about this one. Aroma is yeast, malt, alcohol. Same follows in the taste with the alcohol being well hidden by the sugar sweetness. After is malty sweet and sugar sweet.

Massive, eggshell white head, dissipates into a wisp atop a cloudy golden pour. Belgian yeast, celery, white pepper, light wood, dampness on the nose. Crisp, clean and dry, white grape, yeast, wood, light spice. Very easy and well built.

ManVsBeer (11205) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2018
Large bottle bought somewhere in Brugge as a present for me. Golden-amber with a head and hazy due to the sediment floating about the ale. Has yeasty pale malts in both aroma and taste, all very tasty with a small smoothness in its texture, with its strength fairly hidden by the sum of these parts.

Bottle. Golden, clouded, white foam. Aroma: floral, esters, malt, slightly fortified wine. Taste: bitter-sweet, berry, a bit citrus, bitterly, warming, good.

Piana drobna trwała, zdobi szkło. Kolor żółto cytrusowy mętny. Aromat uderza belgia, estry, brzoskwinie, pomarańcze, drożdże, lekko słodki bardzo przyjemny. Smak, jest efekt WOW, niesamowita złożoność i przy tym gra wszystkich smaków, jest tu wszystko co w belgijskim piwie :). Są owoce w postaci brzoskwiń cytrusów, ostry przyprawowy-drożdżowy posmak, baza słodowa z niewielką słodyczą. Jest też chmiel ziołowo-kwiatowy z nutą cytrusową i wyraźna ale nie wysoka goryczka. Bardzo dobry belg WOW

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2017 color oro tendente all'arancio con schiuma bianca fine persistente. Al naso: miele, frutta a pasta bianca, una lieve speziatura ed una punta agrumata ed erbacea. In bocca è dolce, fruttata in cui si risentono lievi note fenoliche del lievito ed agrumi. Il finale e secco in cui fa capolino un non molto prorompente amaro erbaceo del luppolo

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2017 golden belgium ale with plenty of hops and a bitter though refreshing taste

Frisch aus dem Fass bei Vini Berre Ribelli in BXL getrunken. Leicht trübes Goldgelb mit weißer Schaumkrone. Frische Nase. Schöner Körper mit gut verstecktem Alkohol.
