COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our brewmaster, Jef Versele, crafted this exclusive Gulden Draak Brewmasters Edition as a tribute to his grandfather Jozef Van Steenberge and the 230th birthday of the brewery. His inspiration came from his numerous trips to the United States and his deepest respect for the craft beer culture. This exclusive Gulden Draak combines the technology and the craftsmenship of the traditional brewing process. By letting the beer mature on whiskey barrels it gives it a distinctive and gental finish that you have never tasted before.

Robe ambrée, mousse crémeuse, moyennement persistante. Nez marqué par la coté boisé et tourbé, pointe de malt et d'épices. Bouche plus simple, plus fluette que la précédente, finale acidulée. Un cran en dessous de la trignac

Beautiful clear amber pour. Aroma of caramel, toffee, vanilla, oak, booze, raisins and other dried fruits. Taste is in perfect balance, sweet and bitter wise. Medium body with medium carbonation and a soft alcoholic finish. Highly enjoyed this beer. This brewer never disappointed me, don't care what other reviewers say about them.

Originally at my 20K tasting but this intrigued me enough to get another bottle. Almost clear dark amber beer, good pale tan head. Palate is airy and mildly dry and has decent carbonation. Light malts bring a light sweetness. Nice mellow whiskey dominates, a little fruity whiskey and mild spice. Touch of vanilla and a good toffee streak holding it all together. Light finish. Just has a great drinkability this one and I polished off most of the bottle in one sitting. Very nice.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2017 This is the Gulden Draak that I love but with a different and interesting aftertaste: whiskey. I’m not a big fan of whiskey, but in this case its not to overwhelming.

chrisv10 (18572) - DENMARK - NOV 10, 2017
Bottle, 10.5%. Slightly hazy dark amber with big tan head. Aroma is malt, caramel, dark fruit, yeast, little dusty, wood and barrel. Flavour is malt, caramel, yeast, dark fruit, sweet, warming, toasted, wood,

Piepenhenrich (1246) - Steinbach, GERMANY - NOV 10, 2017
From bottle. Pours amber with medium to low head, untypical for Belgian Ales. Has a surprising caramel and banana aroma. First impression is caramel, but very quickly overwhelmed by an impression of booze, whiskey maybe, probably from the casks used and some alcoholic note. It is an interesting, complex composition, with a little too much caramel to rank among the top-notch brews to my liking.

Muggus69 (2748) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 7, 2017
(unsure of vintage) corked & caged 750mL bottle at "Tony's Taphouse"
Pours deep amber, firm white cream aplenty.
Nose of Belgian yeast spices - cloves, nutmeg, pepper - hint of oaken toast & vanilla, rich ripe pears & apricots.
Lovely creamy texture, rich without being cloying.
Flavours become more intense on palate - sweet pears & plums and brioche, spicy phenolics integrated with plenty of oaken vanilla & dried fruit. Warm finish.
What a treat!
