COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gulden Draak, lonely at the top for 25 years, now gets company
The birthday present: Gulden Draak 9000 Quadruple, an enrichment of the Gulden Draak range.
An ode to the past and to the city of (9000) GHENT The Gulden Draak is named after the gilded statue on top of the belltower of Ghent. Such eminent symbol, that has been standing firm for over 6 centuries, deserves equally grand beers. The unsurpassed Gulden Draak as dark tripel of 10,5% alcohol gets, after 25 years of growing success, quite an addition, the Gulden Draak 9000 Quadruple.

All features of the Gulden Draak The extremely rich and complex taste sensation and the stable beer head can also be found in the Gulden Draak 9000 Quadruple. The sweet caramel touches, however, are still reserved for the Gulden Draak.

With addition of extra malt The new recipe, on basis of 3 different kinds of malt added in a volume of 4 times the content in lager, provide the Gulden Draak 9000 Quadruple with a deep golden amber colour and a fruity scent. Together with the smooth and subtle sweet taste ensures this a wonderfully accomplished bouquet.

In line with the traditions of Brewery Van Steenberge Just like the other specialty beers of Brewery Van Steenberge is the Gulden Draak 9000 Quadruple a beer of high fermentation with secondary fermentation. A wine yeast is used for the secondary fermentation, which also contributes to the grandiose taste.

Bue dans son verre avec le lit de levures. Une belle bire orange avec quelques reflets rouges, un mousse crme malheureusement pas assez tenace (do la perte dun point pour laspect). Cest une bire liquoreuse, aux armes de raisins trs prsents. Vient ensuite des armes de diffrents fruits (orange notamment). Lgrement sucre sans briser son amertume. Les levures apportent une chaleur persistante en bouche, trs agrable. En bref, une trs bonne bire, forte mais quilibre, dguster au coin du feu aprs une rude journe !

330ml stubby dark bottle, unfiltered, part of a mixed box of six Belgians for 10.49 from Lidl. Slightly stronger and noticeably paler than the regular Gulden Draak. A more pleasant drink all round, though still rather sweet and offering little more than a Euro strong lager. Well, thats harsh, this is smoother, more rounded, has more toffee flavour, a reasonably pleasant perfumed nose and is quite warming. It hides its strength quite well. Its drinkable and its fun. And, due to the bottle conditioning, its fresh.

VueltaBirrista (84) - Murcia, SPAIN - DEC 23, 2016
Elaborada con tres tipos diferentes de malta utilizadas adems en grandsimas cantidades le marcan el carcter. Su aroma es muy afrutado y la malta y levadura estn muy presente. En boca es muy especiada, con un final algo picante y un amargor muy agradable. Gran carga alcohlica. Conforme se va calentando est mucho ms rica.

330ml. In a leffe goblet. Like a random kiss from an inyaface chick whos attractive but never elegant. she walks up to you drunk at midnight and kisses u in boozy confidence...then she vomits on the curb before u can get her number. Theres nothing classy about this beer, its intense and lazy in a boozy, malt heart attack.. notes of spice, brown sugar emphasis, deep jamish malts,Dundee cake, light chocolate, oily hops, dark raisin. Quit cumbersome, unlike a random drunken chicks tits at midnight .

And yes, very nice beer. Good mouthfeel but not really lasting. Aftertaste long and good.

rodbod (282) - SCOTLAND - DEC 18, 2016
Bottle from Lidl. Pours a slightly cloudy amber/gold. Nose is intense, spicy, sweet, syrupy, rather boozy (but not overly boozy). Taste is very sweet and rich, malty, fruity, raisins and spices. Palate is surprisingly clean, given how rich this beer is. Leaves a very fruity finish. Excellent, albeit dangerously boozy.

Cristobal37 (909) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 15, 2016
Spices and some kind of fruit on the nose, maybe dates. Nutty, spicy, doughy, really nice. I remember it being boozier, maybe once it warms up. Becomes a bit more flavorful but not.boozy by any means. A really cool quad.

Butelka 330ml. Ladny opalizujacy miedziano-bursztynowy kolor. Piana srednia ,biala,lekko brudzona o drobnych pecherzach. Aromat slodow,rodzynek,bananow,karmelu,drewna i drozdzy. Slodkie..moze nawet za bardzo ale typowe dla gatunku. Karmel i suszone owoce na pierwszym planie..rodzynki i drozdzowo-chlebowe nuty w tle. Alkohol rozgrzewa przelyk ale jest dobrze ukryty.

lkowalkowski (231) - POLAND - DEC 7, 2016
Barwa miedziana, piana gęsta, drobna i jasna. Dosyć szybko się redukuje, nieśmiało oblepia szkło. Aromat mocny i wyraźny. Od razu poznać ze to Quadrupel. W smaku trochę słodkie, trochę owocowe. Wszystko świetnie się komponuje. Bardzo dobre piwo.
