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.

Aroma: spice, bubblegum, banana, bread; Appearance: pale amber gold, medium vanishing head; Taste: medium bitterness, medium sweetness, slight sourness; Palate: long finish, oily texture, average carbonation, medium body Well-hidden alcohol, strangely closer to a tripel than to a quadrupel :-) Not too dry, well balanced.

chromeotaphor (151) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2014
Honing rook fruitig achtig aroma. Bitterzoet fruitig in de mond, zoetige nasmaak in de afdronk, doet crme achtig aan. Mooi gevarieerd palet aan smaken.

KoNrRiI (1260) - rhus, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2014
0.33 bottle. Hazy, light brown color and a small cream-colored head of great retention. Aroma full of malts, honey, fruits, alcohol, and sugar. Sweet taste, a lot of malts, some candized sugar, and a touch of molasses. Medium to full body, creamy texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is a tad sourer than the rest with more fruity flavors and candy sugar though it isnt as amazing as in most quads. Overall the brew is great although it would be hard to mess up a quadrupel; it doesnt stand out, just utilizes the quadrupels features well.
