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.

Copper beer with good carbonation and head retention as well as lacing. Fruity and spicy aroma and flavor, well balanced bitterness and sweetness. It has a dry finish, spicy, peppery and notes of wine yeast. Very strong flavors. Excellent beer, even though not my style.

Mooi donkeroranje/amberkleurig bier met stevige volle witte schuimkraag. Zoetig aroma van amandel, caramel, mout, beetje appelsien. Mooie volle smaak met een lange zacht-warme afdronk. Caramel, cassonade, toffee, perzik. Mooi bier.

lownote (575) - Austin, Alabama, USA - MAR 11, 2017
Pours super clear amber with a fluffy head that fades. Lighter than expected. From tap. Aroma is all stone fruit. Plum. Dark. Really inviting.taste is delicious. Sweet but well attenuated. Rich fruit flavors. Some raspberries. A tiny bit spicy. Has some sharpness upfront, palate wise. Bubbly. Delicious.

TrefwoordPunk (1076) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2017
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear amber with a medium foamy head and an aroma of caramel, alcohol, black berries, grape, white wine, apple pie and honey. The taste is medium to heavy sweet with a sugarry sweetness that sticks to the lips, the carbonation is sparkling and theres some slight bitterness and acidity in the finish. Pretty nice

Bouteille 2014, 330ml Bire bien vivante et effervescente. Couleur ambr et joliment mousseuse. Une mousse onctueuse de couleur crme qui ne se lasse pas! Composes dune multitude de molcules odorantes, caramel sucr, dalcool lger, de petits fruits noir. On sent trs bien la force des armes, raisin et figue sont en concomitance avec une sensation vineuse au nez. Des vapeurs de pomme rtie sur le pole joue un rle assez vocateur! Ds lentre, le sucre brun nous colle au lvre, allchant! La figue et le sucre brun attire sur le palais des notes boiss, de raisins, de pomme verte, qui schauffe avec un bon ptillement en bouche qui fait ressortir des saveurs mielleux et lgrement vineux, jusqu la finale ou lon ressent aucunement une trace dalcool!

buki (165) - Otwock, POLAND - MAR 1, 2017
Aromat: słodko, brązowy cukier, coca cola, goździki, silne estry przyprawowe
Wygląd: brunatno brązowa barwa, piana wysoka i niechętnie opada, buteleczka gustowna. Jest bardzo dobrze
Smak: guma balonowa, estry, gożdziki, nieco banana
Odczucie: Piwo jest bardzo pełne, nieco oleiste, nagazowanie średnie, alkohol zgodnie ze stylem pojawia się ale jedynie pali delikatnie w przełyk
Oglnie: Bardzo udany quad, być może jedynie delikatnie za mocno pszenicznie.
