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.

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

Bobson (98) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2017
Bottle @ home. Looks amber or orange and slightly hazy with a small white head. Smell gives citrus fruits, grass and some caramel. Tastes like the same citrus fruits, grass with a spicy aftertaste. Quite a strong carbonation and overall smooth mouth feel. Overall, a very solid beer Id happily drink again.

tomekk1978 (1394) - 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.
