Gulden Draak 9000 
Posted: 29 March 2015  Beer Republic 5.5 
Gulden Draak 9000 from Belgium It's too bad I didn't delight in Gulden Draak 9000.    Brouwerij Van Steenberge, the producers of this brew, put a lot of work into it.  Three different kinds of malt are added in a volume of 4 times the content in lager.  No one is saying artistry isn't present, but to appreciate that artistry, you first have to get an associates degree in alcohol consumption.        
Avg price/liter: USD 7.30   ABV %: 10.7 Type: Quadrupel   Belgium 
       


It's too bad I didn't delight in Gulden Draak 9000.    Brouwerij Van Steenberge, the producers of this brew, put a lot of work into it.      

Into the name as well.  Gulden draak signifies the golden dragon at the top of the belfry of Ghent, a familiar symbol to Ghent residents for over 600 years.  9000 is the postal code for Ghent.           

Gulden Draak 9000 is highly fermented and then secondary fermented with wine yeast and packs a punch all right.  Too much of one!       

Brouwerij Van Steeberge says you can use their alcoholic punch in stews, as sauces for red meat, or as a dessert beer.  In that respect, this beer is more like a wine and, as such, would work best if it were substituted in situations where one might reach for a bottle of wine.      

Three different kinds of malt are added in a volume of 4 times the content in lager.  No one is saying artistry isn't present, but to appreciate that artistry, you first have to get an associates degree in alcohol consumption.    Having just sampled Prearis Quadrupel the day before, with roughly the same alcohol content, I knew a quadrupel could taste like heaven's nectar in the right hands. 

Look for other hands.     

If you liked reading this, consider savoring these reviews:
