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.

A damn fine beer. Very, very malty. Almost like a dopple bock. Very rich..chewy...with all the great flavors of dried fruit carried along by the warmth of the alcohol. Really enjoyed this one!

Nice amber color with medium sized brownish head. Sweet red berry fruity smell. Dominant grapes aroma, dried fruits, raisins and some malt in aroma. Taste is sweet, like fruity sugar sweet. Awesome.

330ml bottle. Pours dark brown with medium off-white head. Aroma of dried fruits, caramel, yeast, raisins, malts. Full body with average carbonation. Taste is very well bitter-sweet balance with a hint of alcohol. Very nice.

Schnabelhund (107) - TAIWAN - SEP 14, 2017
Gulden Draak pours a hazy light brown color with a long-lasting and frothy beige head that leaves decent lacing behind. The nose has notes of honey, caramel, and molasses as well as a hint of vanilla. The flavor hits with a sweet attack of caramel, cereal, cream, and sugar, followed by down-to-earth, full-bodied, and creamy mid-palate of baked apple, molasses, plum, and hints of vanilla and banana. The subsequent finish is gently bitter, tannic, peppery, and soothingly warming. A classic brew.

Det er sgu en fin øl, der er noter af rødvin i smagen, hvilket gør det nok ikke er for alle. Den er ikke så tung, som man måske skulle tro, men der er hammer på smagen. Hvis man er til små søde øl her af rødvin, så er det sgu nok en god øl!

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2017 Great refreshing taste. It confused me for my first time. I wasn't sure what taste I feel, but I was sure that I love it.

ROSE1962 (314) - POLAND - SEP 3, 2017
Ciemnobursztynowe. Piana niska, szybko opadajaca. sredniopecherzykowa. W aromacie owoce, rodzynki, miód. W smaku rodzynki, miód/karmel, przyprawy korzenne z nutka wina. Calkiem slodkie, ale nie przesadzone

Bottle from tesco. Aroma: honey, caramel, flowers, spice, fruity aroma. Coper color with red notes, big creamy head. Taste: honey, banana, spice, citrus, medium to full body but very drinkable beer. Slight hoppy ending.
