Poured from 750mL white bottle into a snifter. This beer pours with a healthy amount of head and leaves beaded lacing on the glass.
Smells of malt mix with lighter doses of fruit & peppery goodness. My only wish is that the scent itself was more pronounced.
One sip of this beer tells you there's something very special in your hands. Creamy malt hits first, followed by a distinct fruity sweetness not typically associated with this style. It's sweet, but not overly so by any stretch. Carbonation is higher than average, but well balanced by the full-bodied texture and various flavors in this complex beer. Delicious!
Gulden Draak is deceptively easy drinking -- watch out for that 10.5% ABV -- but first rate nonetheless. One of my favorites.
