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.

ALLOVATE's rating

ALLOVATE (2977) - Perth, - NOV 16, 2012
Simple, unassuming label, check, small brown bottle, check, grandish ale that bears no resemblance whatsoever to any Tripel Ive tried, check. New or just been hidden away from me for many years, this is a celebratory explosion of all the simple things melded to make one smile. It pours with so much life. Cloudy as the yeast goes in; a misty deep orange with the finest of carbonation streaming slowly towards a mountainous bleach white crown. The head is well held and settles a good two inches with half that out the lip of the chalice. Laces wickedly. Piercing, all alerting nose has lots of plump fruit reminiscent of cantaloupe, peach and honeydew with edging herbal elderflower and lavender. Similar biting and gripping ripe and underripe fruit on the palate. Bitter fruit end, vinous and dry with a piney, floral and earthy flow. Beautifully balanced and harmonious with its back drop of clean malts. Firm body made lighter by the effervescence. This is lipsmackingly good stuff. Vinous, hoppy, fruity, refreshing and scarily shielding of that alcohol. A wonderful non Tripel!! (33cL, BBE 04/15, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

0.33l bottle. Hazy orange body with a white head. Aroma of banana, bread, grapes, spicy phenols and some citruses. Taste of bread, honey, grapefruit and grass. Quite hoppy for sure. Nice beer.

tomekk1978 (1385) - Zbki, POLAND - FEB 11, 2017
Aromat: dość skromny, ale przyjemny - nieco biszkoptw, ził, może odrobina cytrusw. Alkohol mimo sporej dawki o dziwo dość dobrze ukryty.

Wygląd: głęboka złota barwa, klarowna. Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, obfita i trwała.

Smak: umiarkowana słodycz i głwnie herbatnikowy posmak słodu. Do tego szybka chmielowa kontra i wyższa niż w aromacie nuta alkoholowa. Goryczka ziołowa, w okolicach średniej, ale przyjemna i nie zalegająca. Podbija ja nieco alkohol. Krągła pełnia, umiarkowane do wysokiego wysycenie i wytrawny , goryczkowy finisz z nutą alkoholową, rozgrzewająca przełyk, jednak łagodniejącą w miarę spożywania. Bardzo przyzwoite piwo w swojej klasie. Overall niższy tylko dlatego, ze to nie mj ulubiony styl.
