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.

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20

Bière blonde à la robe faiblement trouble et aux bulles fines. Un petit centimètre de mousse blanche. Belle et amertume qui tient longtemps en bouche, goût épicé mais un peu faible. La teneur élevée en alcool ne se fait pas sentir !

Pours amber with medium white head. Aroma is toffee, bitter, grass, sour apple, cinnamon, bitter spices. Taste is bitter, spices, butter, cream, basil, some sweetness, citrus fruits. Nice beer!

33ml Bottle at MDP. Pours golden orange, high head that leaves a nice lacing behind. Fruity estery essence, typical of the style. Sweet on the palate first and then finishes bitter. Banana and dried fruits. Heavy.

Bottle from Saveur Bière.com Big belgian ale, taste like tripel. Nice carbonation for style, yesty and hoppy. Nice

Idiosynkrasie (7609) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 21, 2017
330ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, orangey, deep golden colour with average, frothy, moderately lasting and lacing, white head. Fruity, yeasty-spicy and slightly bready and biscuity, malty aroma, notes of apricot, peach, hints of speculoos. Taste is dry, fruity, slightly yeasty spicy, sweet-ish, biscuity malty basis, notes of apricot, peach, hints of speculoos, slightly grassy and minimally citrusy, hoppy overtones, alcoholic whiffs; finish comes along with additional peppery-spiciness. Full body, moderately lively, nevertheless smooth, gentle carbonation.

Pour is a cloudy golden with a huge white head. Aroma is very yeasty and estery with a pils type bready malt. Flavor is very earthy and rustic. A slight hop with some rich malt and a real nice yeast ester pop. Finish is very clean with no alcohol felt. This is a wonderful tripel even though this is listed as a strong ale. Very light but heavily carbonated and flavorful.

Lots of yeast in nose and mouth. Coriander, cloves, slight banana and a general sweetness. Very soft and pleasant mouthfeel. Does what it is supposed to.

On tap @ Henrik. This is a mild cloudy golden colored one. A medium to small sized whiteish dotting head on the top. It smells quite good. Sweetish, a little sugary even. Esters all the way, traces og banana and apple. Some alcohol. hints. Smells really pleasant. Tastes good also. Green flavors. It’s nice and oily in the mouth and it’s just below average on the carbonation. Traces of both mouthdrying red currants and musky apples. Soft dusty. A little alco warming perhaps, nothing disturbing. Yeah, nice one. 30.06.2017

Bouteille 33 EXP 09/03/22. Aspect : orange à petite mousse. Arômes : poire, agrumes, herbes. Goûts : sur le malt, orange, abricot, épices/poivre. Amertume moyenne et assez grosse carbonatation. Bel équilibre chez ce produit de chez Ranke pas mal du tout. Heureusement, je n’ai pas attendu la date limite !

Gekocht op zaterdag 4-2-2017 bij K&S Beer Tobacco Galerie in de Katelijnestraat 52 te Brugge tijdens het 10é Bruggse bierfestival. Een winkeltje waar je keuze hebt uit meer dan 500 verschillende bieren en met nog een ingang/achterdeur rechttegenover brouwerij De Halve Maan. En geproefd op 20-05-2017. Guldenberg heeft een geel kleurtje en is verder helder van uitzicht, als je de gist erbij schenkt wordt hij wat troebel natuurlijk. Bij het uitschenken krijg je veel wit schuim in een dik-wollige structuur en het blijft op een normale wijze aan het glas kleven. Middelmatige CO2 pareling met middelmatig grootte belletjes. Guldenberg heeft een gist bitterig aroma (ik had de gist erbij geschonken) en is ook fruitig met appel, banaan en citrus. De smaak van Guldenberg is wat gistbitter en zoetig met vooral citrus. In de mond geeft Guldenberg een volle smaak, is hij lichtjes droog en volmondig van textuur. De bittere nasmaak blijft lang hangen. Dit biertje heeft mij persoonlijk niet zo bekoort, te bitter in de smaak en evenzo in de nasmaak.
