Steeped in legends and rooted in centuries-old brewing practices, Gulden Draak is more than just a beer – it’s a tale waiting to be told. With its name translating to "Golden Dragon", this Belgian Strong Ale carries the weight of its name, providing an experience that is as mythical and grand as the creature it's named after.

Brouwerij Van Steenberge, the masterminds behind this majestic brew, have been at the forefront of Belgian brewing since 1784. Nestled in Ertvelde, a quiet corner of Belgium, the brewery has been handed down over several generations, preserving a rich tradition while simultaneously embracing modern techniques. This duality is evident in Gulden Draak, which beautifully bridges the gap between time-tested brewing techniques and contemporary tastes.

Tasting Notes:

  • Appearance: Deep amber with a ruby tint, crowned by a dense, off-white foamy head that lingers with grace.
  • Aroma: A complex bouquet filled with caramel malt, ripe fruits like raisins and plums, and hints of warming spices, underlined by a touch of alcoholic warmth.
  • Flavour: Rich malt backbone, interplaying sweet notes of caramel and toffee with dark fruits. A subtle spice character and a gentle hop bitterness add layers of depth, making each sip an exploration.
  • Mouthfeel: Full-bodied, creamy, and smooth. The carbonation is refined, creating a sensation that’s rich yet not overwhelming, leading to a warm and satisfying finish.

There's a regal elegance to Gulden Draak. It's not a beer to be hurried; it demands to be revered, respected, and relished. The dance of malts, fruits, and spices on the palate makes it an ideal companion for a myriad of dishes, from hearty stews to rich desserts, or simply to be enjoyed on its own on a quiet evening.

The allure of Gulden Draak is undeniable. It beckons not just to the seasoned beer lover but also to those standing at the threshold, eager to delve deep into the world of artisanal brews. The promise is simple – a journey through time, tradition, and taste.

As the tales of golden dragons and age-old legends fill your mind, let Gulden Draak be the vessel that transports you to a world where every drop tells a story. A world where history, craft, and flavour intermingle, waiting for the next explorer. Are you ready to embark on this adventure? Purchase online or in-store now.
