  • Gulden Draak

    Gulden Draak is a dark brown Triple Ale, which makes it an exception among the Belgian Triples. The second fermentation results in a nice creamy head, full body and all the vitamins of the centuries old brewers yeast. It is a "thick" beer, that you can actually "nimble" to adventure the complex taste. Gulden Draak balances a natural malt toffee-like sweetness with a mellow happiness and some hoppy accents. The aroma is round, sweet and reveals the 10.5 alcohol by volume. Another name for this type of rich beer is: "Barley wine". To be sipped and enjoyed slowly, as a dessert, or as a treat you definitely deserve!.

    Holland International Beer Festival - Haarlem 1995: overall winner - best beer. Silver medal in the International Beer Competition: Chicago 1996. Silver Medal Dark Ales. At the California Microbrew Beer Festival 1995.

    FOOD & BEER:   Dessert-beer after dinner. Or just before bed. Great with chocolate. Sealed from light in the white painted bottle, which can be recycled as candle-holder.

    Dark ruby with a big foamy pinkish head and a sharpish but malty gooseberry-tinged aroma, this beer has a rich tart fruity prune palate, a fluffy herbal swallow and gooseberry and custard on a herbal finish, tasting much less than its true strength.

    You can age Gulden Draak for many years, just like wine.
