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.

wiggies13 (17) - WALES - JAN 14, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2018 Poured from bottle a rich red-brown, with fine head that faded quickly. Banana bread aroma, not significant. Tastes full in mouth with fine fizz, not overpoweringly alcoholic. Tastes mainly of malt, treacle, dried fruits with just enough bitterness to balance the flavours. Warming, more-ish, tasty

Bottle from Lidl, Wrekenton, Gateshead. Copper coloured with a large white head of foam. It has a malty, dried fruit and candi sugar flavour with a warming, spicy, smooth plum, currant and liquorice spiced finish. Excellent.

SvanteL (651) - SWEDEN - JAN 2, 2018
Läckert rödbrun med stort ljusbrunt skum. I doften finns massor med söta dofter av torkad frukt och lite choklad och jäst, Smaken är en explosion av torkade frukter och eldighet plus lite göttig choklad och körsbär.

Decent mid-brown head, dark bloody brown body. Strong, but not overly so. So much flavour, nice relaxing beer to drink.

Red clear beer, with standar carbonation and a lovely stable beige head at nose it has lots of sugar and burned caramel notes when is tasted is rather sweet with a very good balance and a slight bitterness at the end, perfect for a steak or a sweet dessert in a summer day.
