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.

cranesareflying (50) - Evanston, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2003
Opens with a champagne pop, best by 05/04, a dark, golden color with plenty of froth on the head, a tart, leathery aroma, the immediate flavor is sour citrus, with an exclamation on the sour, a taste that is severe, rich, and powerful throughout, with plenty of carbonation, slightly sweet, but dry and bitter on the finish, becoming more palatable in time

Linnet (1890) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2017
Floral, grass, hay, corn, alcohol, funky yeast. Hazy golden colour, medium white head, lacing. Noticable, herbal bite, haylike malts, alcohol, Good amount of funky yeast, grass. Fullbodied, lively carbonation, spritzy mouthfeel, hoppy and yeasty finish. Enjoyable.

Flaska 33 cl systembolaget. Disig lysorange kulör med massor av bubblor. Örtig och mustig doft. Äpplemos, hö och jäst. Söt smak av jäst, äpplekart och lite koriander. Viss bitterhet i efterbeskan.

Een van de betere bieren in de abdijbieren stijl. Mocht voor mij wel nog iets minder zoet zijn. beetje honing, beperkte bitterheid,...

GhostS (486) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - OCT 7, 2017
Aromă cam stinsă, mult malț și ceva drojdii proaspete - o bere lager bună și nefiltrata, ceva note de fructe puțin coapte. Gust foarte puțin dulce și mediu amar (amăreala belgiană), fructe necoapte, puțină caramelă, puține ierburi medicinale, ceva drojdii belgiene. Bună.

tanel025 (199) - ESTONIA - OCT 3, 2017
Batch made on Jan 16, 2015. Light orange, white head. Aroma is malt, caramel. Taste is hops, spicy (yeast?), some apricot seeds. Not very pleasant, cannot feel sweetness. Very bitter, dry. Aftertaste also very bitter. Not balanced. Cannot feel alcohol. Strange beer.

bigtaster (1016) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 29, 2017
In a pint glass at Moeder. Pale orange body , big white head. Honey, wheat, white grape juice, wheat. Medium body, sweet with nice balance of bitterness low carbonation. Really a hybrid of a pale ale with a tripel. Extremely well done. 4.2

Porcellini (59) - Barcelona, SPAIN - SEP 24, 2017
Color diría que anaranjado. Espuma blanca de poca duración. Bastante cuerpo. Olor con notas especiadas. Sabor a cereal y fina amargo, pero no fuerte,

vaagen (3) - - SEP 16, 2017 does not count
Very light, just fresh and pleasant in the first sips maybe a small hint of some fruit in the aftertaste? Don´t be afraid of this, even if you like me, found the XX bitter to be a bit of and acquired taste this is just a light and very fresh beer. light body, thin feel, average carbonation, a very small hint of bitterness in the finish, As the beer heats and oxygenates yeast flavors also start to become pronounced.
