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.

JanEric (1246) - Meppel, - MAR 25, 2012
Dark blonde, with dense white head. Aroma shows up yeast, alcohol, some malts and a sweetness like almonds or walnuts. Bitter taste, fizzling by the alcohol. Strong, full bodied, dry. A fair beer, but very hevay in the finish by the amounts of alcohol that dominates the beer.

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 (979) - 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.

Вполне годный квадрупель. В аромате чувствуется алкоголь и легкая фруктовость. Вкус достаточно яркий. Фрукты, немного цитрусовых, легкая карамель. Все это дело портит жуткий алкогольный вкус. Послевкусие как всегда для квадрупеля просто шикарное и мягкое.

sebsky (297) - ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2017

lello4ever (1191) - ITALY - OCT 24, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2017 Ottima quad colore oro arancione poca schiuma, al naso malto, caramello, vena alcolica. Al palato è intensa, corposa, bel alcol. Malto caramello dolce e rotonda. Buona carbonazione.

PasternaG (20) - St.Petersburg, RUSSIA - OCT 7, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2017 Слишком светлый квадрупель)) Раньше казался экстремальным, сейчас - наоборот, кажется слишком спокойным пивом. Питко, карамельной, спокойно, хорошо

Jingis (234) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 7, 2017
Zakupene v lidly. Prijemna sladkasta vona. Farba taka polotmava, medova. Chut sladkasta s peknou alkoholovou koncovkou.

MatusBeer (781) - Košice, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 4, 2017
Bottle. Hazy golden colour with stable whie head off. Aroma of sugar, yeasts. Taste is sweet, sugar, dry plumbs, moderate carbonation, sweet finish

Nevalainen (836) - 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.
