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.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2006 Bottled. Caramel, raisin and hint of smoke in the aroma. Ruby color, beige very nice looking head, very nice lace. Light sweet, bitter, lots of dark fruits, well hopped, very nice balance, spices. Warming, full body.

I'm already a fan of strong ales and barleywines. Gulden Draak is my new favorite.

My first Gulden Draak was so very odd, it being my first barley wine. It tasted like garbage to be honest. A few days later I tried it again. Then I loved it. Alcohol fumes are prevalent.

Deep amber color. Looked like an ordinary barley wine. Smelled like apple juice. Not exceptional but I was happy drinking it. It may have been the sweet malty taste or the Dead playing a rocking Row Jimmy, China>Rider as Klima and Edmonton lit Quebec up
