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.

Flawless. Head retention is amazing. Aromas of sweet fruits and flowers. Taste is complex and the yeast definitely stands out and gives off very fruity flavors. Love this beer!

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2017 Слишком светлый квадрупель)) Раньше казался экстремальным, сейчас - наоборот, кажется слишком спокойным пивом. Питко, карамельной, спокойно, хорошо

Jingis (216) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 7, 2017
Zakupene v lidly. Prijemna sladkasta vona. Farba taka polotmava, medova. Chut sladkasta s peknou alkoholovou koncovkou.

MatusBeer (756) - Košice, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 4, 2017

Nevalainen (824) - FINLAND - SEP 30, 2017
Cloudy amber color with stable off-white head. Aroma of caramel, fruit and pepper. Taste is medium sweet with caramel flauvour and boosty finish. Low carbonation. Quite nice, but drink it slowly due the high abv.

Mariox (295) - Warsaw, POLAND - SEP 28, 2017
Trochę za słabo ukryty alkohol, a przez to niszczy cały smak i nie podobne to do dobrych quadów, więc szkoda...

Sammy (12610) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2017
High class Belgian ale, a bit boozy. Dangerously smooth otherwise. Very bubbly. Private buying club.
