BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Guldenberg is a tripel-style abbey ale containing 8.5% vol. Alc. Its colour is blond and it’s made of pale malt with the addition of candy sugar. The bitterness comes from the Hallertau hops we use as bitterhop and as aromahop. On top of that we use dry – hopping techniques with the same hops which give the ale its unique flavour and aroma and its perfect balance between sweet and bitter. The name came from the former Guldenberg Abbey in Wevelgem, the village of birth of Nino, one of the brewers. According to data in Flandria Illustrata ale was brewed here in the past.

11.2oz bottle poured into a tulip
(A)- Pours a hazed goldenrod yellow color. Produced a nice cap of white froth with good retention and lacing
(S)- Absolutely bone dry. Hints of a yeasty hay, biscuit, and lemon peel; quite earthy
(T)- Quite similar to the smell. Bone dry with dense yeast and earthy hay. A few subtle apple-like flavors poke through but otherwise very dry and yeast driven
(M)- A good carbonation level and balance. Earthy, dry, and not quite bitter. Again, heavy yeast components
(O)- Overall, quite nice. Not sure on the bottles age, but I like the earthiness that carries through in this
