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.

Brak pełnego info o składzie i parametrach zawartości. Piana spora, postrzępiona, szybko opada do chmurkia. Barwa bursztynowa, opalizująca. Pachnie bardziej jak Tripel niż Quad - sporo brzoskwiń, cukru kandyzowanego, biszkoptw, ził. W smaku podobnie, dość słodkie, morelowe, rodzynkowo winogronowe, jest też drożdżwka, ciasto drożdżowe, mid, sporo ził i przypraw na finiszu. Goryczka niska, wysycenie wysokie do średniego, drobne, pełne i gładkie w odbiorze, nie gęste.
Cż tu napisać w podsumowaniu - toż to nie quad a niezły tripel, jasny, brzoskwiniowo-ziołowy, dość słodki. Ot tyle...

Butelka do 07.12.2017. Wygląd - pomarańczowo-bursztynowe, piana mała, redukująca się szybko do obrączki. Aromat - nuty alkoholu, karmelu, zioła, drożdże. Smak - karmelowa słodkość, grzejący w przełyk alkohol, drewno, czerwone owoce. Odczucie W ustach - dość duża pełnia ciała, lecz nie ulepkowata, goryczka raczej niska, wysycenie średnie.

Forte de ses 10,5 % Abv, la Gulden Draak 9000 joue fond la carte de la force et de la puissance de lalcool en cartant le registre de la complexit gustative des armes torrfies/chocolates prsent dans moult quadruples. Ce parti pris est nanmoins intressant, mais aller sur le terrain de lintensit alcoolique est prilleux. Cette matrise demande un parfait quilibre linstar dune Trappe. Si, comme dans le cas de cette Gulden Draak cet quilibre est perfectible, les petites dissonances nen prennent que plus dchos. En verre, la Gulden Draak 9000 est ambre (EBC aux environs de 35), dune parfaite limpidit, avec de fines bulles donnant naissance une mousse are blanc casse, trs abondante louverture pour se stabiliser ensuite environ un centimtre dpaisseur. Le nez est plutt suave et dune belle complexit o lorge et le houblon sallient la poire, la pomme caramlise et au pruneau. Ds lattaque la force de lalcool se fait sentir. Celui ci est, cet instant, bien matris sur une alliance avec le houblon et son amertume qui quilibre convenablement lensemble. Des armes de raisin et de candi viennent quant eux complter la palette gustative. La deuxime bouche est plus simple, sur le fruit, avec des armes de caramel, pche et banane. La troisime fait revenir lalcool en force sur des notes de genivre Celui-ci est alors de trop prgnant, dsquilibrant la bire et ne permettant pas une bonne expression des armes. Larrire bouche prsente en parallle des armes de prunes et raisins sur des notes pices. Le final, dune bonne longueur fera rapparatre lamertume sur des notes pices. Lensemble manque nanmoins dharmonie, lamertume, lalcool et le sucre ntant pas bien assembls donnant limpression darmes, qui, bien quintressants, luttent les uns contre les autres au lieu de sallier. En tout cas son alcool rchaufferait un viking congel. Peut tre est-ce en lhonneur de Sigrid Magnusson?

Piwo metne w kolorze pomaranczowo bursztynowym z dosc obfita sredniopecherzykowa piana. W aromacie slody, dojrzale owoce, belgijskie drozdze. W smaku klasyczny Quad, chociaz moglby byc troche bardziej intensywny. Przyprawy uzupelniaja to samo co mamy w aromacie. Minimalna goryczka i wysycenie na wysokim poziomie.

330 ml bottle from Lidl, Antwerp. Malt, yeast and caramel aroma. Very sweet, strong boozy alcohol taste. Slightly bitterness. Nice dark amber colour and foam head. Heavy Quadruple, which is not easy to drink.

Bottled. Sweetness, alcoholic notes and some woody notes in aroma. Sweet, slightly alcoholic taste, like a stronger blonde ale. Softly csrbonated, medium to heavy on body. Decent, but not outstanding.
