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.

Ottima blond belga, dal solito profumo di lievito belga all'ottimo retrogusto acidulo che permane per tanto in bocca. Ottima con formaggi ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma has characteristic Belgian yeast notes but also delivers sweet tangerine, orange and apricots. Light estery as well. Taste brings a pretty deep sweetness with sweet orange and apricot. Herbs and yeasty spices circulates around a bit, before a clean ending with a pleasant bitterness kicks in. Smooth and 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 (488) - 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 (206) - 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.

4.2
bigtaster (1017) - 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
