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.

This beer pours a dark brown with a medium white head that dissipates very quickly. Very lively carbonation. The aroma is flower and caramel as is the flavor. This beer has a strong pronounced alcohol to it! This was a very good beer. Cheers!

Smells of fresh-baked bread, pours a dark amber, with no head and a lively bit of CO2 is noticable. Sweet and spicy, with alot of drinkability, hides ABV well. Finish is tarty. Very good quad
