A dark brown Triple Ale, which makes it an exception among the Belgian Triples. Gulden Draak is re-fermented in the bottle, and in the keg, making it a real “Living Beer”. The second fermentation offers the nice creamy head and the full body of the centuries old brewers yeast. It is a 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 hides the 10.5% alcohol per volume. Another name for this type of complex beer is “Barley Wine.” You sip and enjoy this beer slowly, as a treat you definitely deserve.
The Gulden Draak is the festive beer of the proud Flemish city of Gent for many centuries. The Gulden Draak statue has sat on the top of the Gent Belfry for over 700 years!
