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.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Bottle served in Duvel snifter: Pours a coppery hue with an initial large frothy white head that does fade a bit, okay lace. The aroma has notes of banana, apricot, peach, dusty earthy esters, some alcohol and candi sugar, and caramlized biscuity malts. The taste is a touch sweet and fruity with a dollop of spicy notes on the finish. Unlike many Quads this does not have the character of Special B malts nor the overall depth. Seems more like an amped up Tripel with all the same yeastie notes. The mouth feel is smooth and moderately carbonated with some boozy warmth as well. Gotta admit I am a bit disappointed in this beer, was expecting something it failed to deliver upon.

jonas (7358) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - APR 5, 2017
Bottle. Cloudy orange, Offwhite rocky foam. Super sweet dark sugar aroma with a bit of fermenting fruit play. Full body yet fizzy. Sugary sweet entry, estery fruity notes - not particular clean ones either. Deceptively light on the palate, but I am not sure it covers the bum demographics well either. Pretty much booze with a few aromatics thrown in. Definitely not over 9000!

SinH4 (4407) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - APR 5, 2017
UPDATED: APR 5, 2017 Bottle. Reddish amber-orange color with nice head. Aroma is brown sugar, raspberry jam, apricots. Taste is estery, sugary, raspberries and apricots again, cloying. Warming finish, sugary sticky mouthfeel. High foamy carbonation. Definitely not my favourite, it mixes everything I hate about Belgian beer and not in the best possible way.

Almost perfect. Nothing bad.i simply have favs. The beer is totally drinkable, like whole bottle drinkable. The color is awesome, head robust, palate simply smooth and resplendent. The palate yields a hint of spice ever so cloyingly. Yummy good-gat-dayum. Well balanced beer. Impressive.

vincentvega72 (615) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2017
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.

Shared 11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy golden hue with a large foamy off-white head. Aroma of dark fruit, malt, spice and yeast. Taste follows nose with plum, raisin and lots of alcohol. Finish is very boozy.

lownote (582) - 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.
