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.

Rodriguez's rating

Rodriguez (364) - Quito, - OCT 26, 2012
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.

Milter (1067) - Nyborg, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2017
Wow. Virkelig en god og spændende øl. Masser af velsmag og fylde. Ganske frisk i smagen.

prawlie (1681) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2017
Bottle. Buttery, light bodied (for the abv), and well attenuated. Good stuff but surprisingly clean and simple for a beer I was expecting to be complex. Warming alcohol finish.

puren (1285) - Gdańsk, POLAND - DEC 5, 2017
klarowne, głęboko bursztynowe, dość obfita, mydlana piana szybko i z sykiem opada do obrączki

ulotny - kwiaty polne, śliwki, brzoskwinie, mokra szmata, gorzki karmel;

ciało średnie ku niskiemu, wysoko nasycone, rozgrzewa bebechy, szczypie w dziąsła;

karmel, drewno, syrop brzoskwiniowy, niska drewniana goryczka;

zaskakująco ulotny i nieciekawy zapach oraz jeszcze nudniejszy smak powodują, że jest to piwo co najwyżej nieszczególne.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2017 Found in Lidl, for a great price . Loved the taste , very complex beer with a decent head

Michael27 (2400) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 22, 2017
Aus der Flasche getrunken (Direktlieferung aus Belgien). Fast klares Amber mit viel Schaum. Dezente süßliche Malznase. Wuchtiger Körper, aber perfekt ausbalanciert.

crazykiller (101) - Iasi, ROMANIA - NOV 20, 2017
33 cl bottle bought from Lidl. Pours hazy amber color with medium white head. Aroma of dried fruits, caramel, honey, light pear. Taste of dried fruits: raisins, prunes, caramel, alcohol, medium sweet. Medium body, average carbonation, nice sweet finish.Overall a good Belgian beer.

Allaälskarbärs (5) - - NOV 19, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2017 Mer smak än vad färgen antyder. Alkoholstyrkan slår en med hull och hår den första sekunden. Sedan rundas det av med knäckig jästsmak. Kärlek

Apariencia : ámbar semi-translúcido (8 SRM aprox.); cabeza blanco marfil; regular retención; buen encaje

Aroma: obvia presencia alcohólica, carácter de vino blanco (Sauvignon blanc); dulzor en nariz

Boca: calidez alcohólica; notas de miel de abejas y ligeras especias; amargor medio-intenso (33 IBU aprox.) de larga duración; cuerpo medio; regular carbonatación

kaserov (1023) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 30, 2017
Color ámbar claro, translúcido, con capa de espuma de un blanco ligeramente amarillento de tres dedos de grosor (apariencia de jabón y muy buena retención, no se disipa del todo en ningún momento). Carbonatación media visualmente. Textura entre oleosa y cremosa. Aroma a pan, miel, caramelo, levadura belga, ligeras especias, fruta madura. En boca entra dulce, sin excederse, con caramelo y miel, fruta madura, pan, levadura belga, vainilla, reminiscencias de fruto seco y especias. Final acaramelado, dulce y prácticamente nada alcohólico. Me parecen perfectamente disimulados esos 10,5 o 10,7%. Me llevo mejor recuerdo de ella que de la clásica Gulden Draak. Esta me parece más sencilla de beber y más compleja.
