COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gulden Draak is a high fermentation beer with secondary fermentation. For the secondary fermentation, wine yeast is used. The white bottle, the black banner, the golden dragon and the red letters, constitute a stylish result that has no equal among the many Belgian special beers. Gulden Draak can be drunk as an aperitif or dessert, or whenever you have the time to sit back and relax. But this barley wine is also perfect with and in stews, especially the Ghent variety. It is also a plus in sauces for red meat, such as a bordelaise. It is particularly suited as a dessert beer, especially in combination with dark chocolate.

cmacklin (1490) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - APR 21, 2018
330ml bottle. Pours an unclear dark red-amber with a large, foamy, long lasting, beige head that leaves lots of chunky lace. Sweet aroma of bready malt, caramel, dates, prunes, raisins, brown sugar, Belgian yeast and light spice. Sweet flavour of bready malt, caramel, raisins, dates, prunes, brown sugar, spice, earthy hops and a hint of chocolate with a mild warming alcohol finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Nice.

pleispleis (317) - Maccagno, ITALY - APR 20, 2018
bottiglia 33 cl, schiuma fine beige media persistenza, color marrone torbido, al naso caramello rum zabaione pepe nero, in bocca è intensa malto creme caramel prugne secche spezie, corpo rotondo, alcool ben bilanciato, carbonazione leggera, molto dolce che non guasta e che contrasta l'elevato alcool, amaro moderato lungo nel finale. Una birra da sorseggiare con calma. Mi piace. 20.04.18

puren (1423) - Gdańsk, POLAND - APR 12, 2018
PREZENTACJA: mocno ucieka z butelki, brązowe, piana ogromna, opada powoli do trwałego atolu, oblepia całą ściankę od góry do dołu;
AROMAT: kwaśne wino owocowe, agrest, brzoskwinia, lekkie funky, troszkę drewna i ciemnego karmelu;
ODCZUCIE: ciało niskie, nisko (już) nasycone, drapie gardło, piecze w przełyk ;
SMAK: czekolada, toffi, w tle wytrawne czerwone wino, wyraźna czekoladowo-alkoholowa goryczka;

UPDATED: APR 14, 2018 Znakomite piwo, poza typowym mocnym Belgiem dużo akcentów winnych, alkohol na pewno wyczuwalny mniejszy niż faktyczny, piwo wielowarstwowe, trochę typowe drożdże, trochę wino, trochę alkohol, wad niemalże brak (poza ceną ;).

oblaten (73) - SPAIN - APR 3, 2018
Ale belga. Color ámbar oscuro. Capa de espuma de unos 3-4 cm que permanece. Gusto algo dulce y fuerte. Plátano, levadura, barrica, brandy, alcohol que se nota. Retrogusto agradable dulce. Tira un poca a ale inglesa. Buena sin llegar al nivel de las de abadia.

The Belgian palate is its trademark. Any good Belgian beer will have it or a version of it. It’s the crispy base of an Italian pizza, the punctuality of a Japanese train, or the soundtrack of a Tarantino film. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cool_Bond (2970) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2018
Yeast, malt and foam banana in the aroma. Overripe fruit, yeast and alcohol taste. No good bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth to a weak moment. No good beer at all. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

svanke (35) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 20, 2018
Rood-bruin, zwaar bier. Mout, pruim, rozijn, zoet niet bitter. Bier om te nippen, lijkt op la trappe quadrupel. Genietbier.

tzynamoon (407) - Jastrzebie-Zdroj, POLAND - MAR 19, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2018 Aromat chlebowy, drożdżowy, biszkoptowy, lekko kwaśny z dodatkiem rodzynek. W smaku goryczki niewiele, a mimo to, ta melanoidowo-waniliowa słodycz jest nieźle przełamana kwaskowatym posmakiem. Alkohol jest wyraźny, ale nie przeszkadza. Bardzo udany trunek.
