look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured a big two and half fingers of head on a deep red/amber colored body.
The aroma is nice: like a beer candy store. Malt, barnyard and lemon drops.
The flavor profile is over the top. It starts slow with a touch of malt sweetness, into a crescendo of candy and lemon bitterness, and then falling down with a mild bitter bite. Fairly complex.
A bit of fizziness plays into the middle in the best way. The texture is a little syrupy.
Amazing.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Smell: clean spring water

Taste: bitter hops with a rich, herbal, malty sweetness that carries throughout; subtle toasted walnuts pervade during each sip

This is one of the funkiest tripels Belgium has produced. Normally tripels have either a clementine, orange, or at least another citrus fruit within the flavor of the beer, but with the golden dragon not a one. This beer caught me off guard and I'm down to try it soon. By the way, This beer goes very well with an Italian sub with heavy mayo and oil
