This Goudenband beer is a very famous Belgian beer. This classic beer might be one of the world’s most complex beers. It is based on Oudenaards Brown beer. This mixed fermented brew then matures for 4 to even 12 months in the Liefmans cellars. Afterwards Liefmans starts cutting the mature brews till Goudenband is created. By doing so, Liefmans actually makes sure every edition is unique. We advise to keep this provision beer in your cellar. So this beer can mature a bit more.

SB beställning , flaska. Verkligen komplex arom. Vacker mörkt rödbrun färg.åldrade bigarråer och torka eller stålsmak. Vad det nu betyder. Lite aceton och doppelbock fladdrar till i tankarna. Fräck öl. Om det nu är en öl...

Colore rubino scuro, schiuma media poco persistente, lieve carbonazione. Al naso sentori vinosi e fruttati. Al palato vino rosso, ciliegia , acidità appena accennata, finale dolce. Birra molto equilibrata e complessa con diverse sfaccettature ad ogni bevuta.
