Im a fan of standard gulden draak so I was looking forward to the opportunity to smag this one. Poured from a 11.2oz stubby bottle into a teku. The bottle was in the fridge for over 24 hours and yet it gushed as the cap pried off. Regardless, it appears a polished clear copper color with a yellowish stained cap. A huge frothy head comes ripping out the bottle and maintains with a large bubble composition. This looks over-carbed but fades quick.

The aroma is sweet like candy or better yet beet sugar with a tinge of alcohol and herbal hops. Not much maltiness from the nose, just a sugary sweet scent. Also, the yeast contribution seems lost. Surprisingly, despite being grosely over-carbonated, there does not appear to be any off-character or detriment to the smell.

The taste is sweet yet solvent with booze. A bit of yeasty aspect is present with a flavor of clove mixing with a suggestion of banana and earth. There is a lasting herbal bitterness and booze with almost a plastic aspect across the back. Whereas the nose was without fault, the taste on this seems off in the aftertaste.

This is a medium to light bodied brew with an effervescent amount of carbonation that is quite a bit overdone. It id a warming beer overall and I get the feeling that my bottle might be off due to the plastic hint and over carbonation. I was sadly let down by this beer and probably would not revisit it again.

Been passing up on trying this beer for a very long time.

Great malty tone to this with a distinct and consistent sweet edge. Way too easy to drink. Strikes me much more as a strong amber ale, but who cares. It's a nice hearty ale that carries mellow, yet pointed, sweet tones. Like I said, way too easy to drink. A great beer.
