Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (syle 18E). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: moderate low malt background with some peppery and caramel notes. no hop aromas. alcohol presence. APPEARANCE: deep amber or coppery color and a bit hazy. average ivory head with good retention. TASTE: very sweet malty flavours with some caramel notes. alcohols on the spicy side. low bitterness rendering the beer unbalanced. finishes sweet. PALATE: medium body with average carbonation. OVERALL: unbalanced and lacking aromas and flavours. could be better.

As a big fan of Gulden Draak, I was excited when my local Belgian import focused bar got the 9000 in. I was a little disappointed, to be honest, as I very much enjoy the Tripel, but that said, the 9000 was still an outstanding beer. Very fruity and earthy, fans of Gulden Draak will encounter that same almost-pungent flavor that distinguishes its cousin from other tripels, but the 9000 does very little to improve on the experience, while upping the price tag slightly. I'd recommend sticking with the tripel.

APPEARANCE - Mostly opaque orange amber with a 4-finger head that lasts. A bit of lacing.

AROMA/SCENT - Sweet, herbaceous.

TASTE - Sweet, herbaceous, ABV not that well-hidden.

MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - Beer is light, well-carbonated, with a pleasantly creamy head.

VALUE - A bit pricey

OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - A sipping beer. Very Belgian taste.
