Bottled and most probably bottle conditioned
More golden than Gulden , so you have an actual if burnished gold body with lots of white head
serious cream sherry aroma, booze and plenty of it with blancmange
flavour is golden syrup and lime wine gums
so light yet so substantial

Worked at a bar where Gulden Draak Brewmasters was almost always on tap. In that respect, the Gulden Draak 9000 marks closer to the Brewmaster's edition than the standard Gulden Draak. IMO the standard is cloyingly sweet and strong. The 9000 feels more balanced and drinkable. Gulden Draak 9000 Quadruple is more balanced and versatile than the Gulden Draak Belgian Ale.

Pours a orange hazy body, full of guts. The head is thick and creamy and you just know the retention is going to be top notch.

Aroma is sweet and alcoholic, but plenty of ripe banana and caramel going on. Very inviting!

Taste is powerful, you can definitely taste that muscular alcohol, but the malty caramel really wins the day.

A few swigs later and the lacing is holding true. The feel is solid, a little sharp at the finish, but given the strength that is to be expected.

Overall, one of the best Quads for my money. Some are either just blindingly strong or lip puckeringly sweet, the Gulden Draak 9000 is neither.

Top top brew, world class.

Opens with a fairly loud pop, pours a massive off white head over a burr orange hazy body. Very pretty aroma of caramel, banana & spice. Taste is slightly sweet with flavors of caramel, honey, malt & alcohol, all nicely balanced. Perfect feel. Very very nice.

I'm not the best at reviewing beers as my palate is not yet developed enough to distinguish more than a few flavors; however, this beer is a good tasting quad. It was about 18 months old yet still had a lot of carbonation, a creamy head, and a typical quad flavor.
