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.

Pours a hazy brown-red, with a slight ecru ring and wispy lacing. Have to work hard to discern the aroma--very subtle, but a pleasant bouquet of fruits once detected. Some mustiness. Thin mouthfeel with mild effervescence--refreshing for a tripel. Complex flavor: alcohol predominates, with sweet fruit on the palate and malt in the background. A fine tripel.

A bottle from Muzha Jason’s, drunk at home. Aroma: beef extract, oxtail soup. Appearance: reddish-brown, minimal tan head. Palate: medium-bodied and thick, soft carbonation, sweet finish. Taste: medium sweet; unbalanced, need more bitterness.

Prima birra vera bevuta 15 anni fa la prima volta. Definirla č impossibile. Neanche troppo complessa, ma il calore vinoso e l’ebbrezza di questo pane liquido sono incomparabili.

Aroma: Cereal and soap. Appearance: Dark brown color with clear liquid and white/tan head. Taste: Heavy sweetness. Palate: Medium body with oily texture and average carbonation. Long sweet finish. Overall: Not alcoholic touch but very sweet, too sweet for me. Not recommended for hot temperatures.

Mocno wysycone, miedziane, ciemne, alkohol wysoko. W aromacie kwiatowe nuty, miód, rodzynki, goździki, guma balonowa, świeży chleb. W smaku dużo słodyczy, powtórzone aromaty, korzenne smaki, kardamon. Mocne, belgijskie ale. Nie moje klimaty, a mimo to urzekło.

Grisza77 (746) - Poznań, POLAND - JUN 19, 2017
Miedziane, klarowne piwo o średniej pianie, która zdobi szkło i pozostaje do końca w formie mgiełki na powierzchni. Aromat rodzynek, karmelu, cukru i trochę alkoholu. W smaku pełne, wręcz gęste, owocowe, karmelowe, ziołowe,minimalnie alkoholowe. Goryczka średnia w stronę wysokiej. Ogólnie bardzo udane i ułożone belgijskie piwo, klasyka gatunku.
