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.

Pours an amber color with a very frothy head... not much lacing surprisingly. Citrusy and not very thick.... pretty solid beer

kapusil (1238) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 29, 2016
0.33l bottle. Clear amber body, white head. Aroma of toast, cherries, banana, dough, wood and some booze. Taste of caramel, banana, wood, cherries, booze and floral hops. Sweet beer, but there is a subtle sourness to it. The alcohol is obvious, but not harsh. I like it.

lesifflebiere (1722) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2016
Cest une bire lapparence surprenante pour ce style, mi-paisse et de couleur orange et tinte de rose. Mousse crme en surface. Nez de gomme balloune, de petits fruits et de sucre dorge. La bouche est trs sucre, beaucoup de fruits, prunes et raisins et autres fruits moelleux et trs mrs. Lalcool est prsent mais bien dissimul. Pas une bire facile, de par ses sucres rsiduels un peu hors de contrle, mais ses saveurs explosives et son originalit la rendent fort agrable boire.

Paladares (199) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 18, 2016
Botella. Precioso color mbar. Semiturbia. Muy rico aroma afrutado, a pera y algo de pltano. Impresionante en boca. Todo matices. 10,5? No me lo creo... o estos tos lo disimulan muy bien. Compleja, plena, con punto fantstico de gas... Fabulosa.

Subliminal64 (114) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2016
Bought as part of a winter mixer pack. Cellared 1 year. Smells like a Quad. The sweet and sour smells are more pronounced. Pours a dark orange colour. Head disappears quickly. Taste is that of a Quad, although the booze came through more in this beer. Not as sweet as some. Great carbonation,. Sweet aftertaste. Overall I was very happy. Will buy again. MB The Beer Bear-on.

Antzrhere (96) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2016
This bottle was marked 10.5% abv, not 10.7% as described here. Pours crystal clear deep golden orange with frothy, large bubbled beige head that quickly disappears to nothing. If this kept a head it would look fantastic. Aroma is bubble gum and fresh coriander leaf. Taste is distinct bubble gum yeast esters, fig, caramel with strong sweetness. Body is thing and strongly carbonated. Very tasty, just too much. The sweetness, strong bubblegum flavour, high alcohol, low body and carbonation make it a difficult beer to drink, however it is full of flavour and a nice one off
