Additional Info

Liefmans Goudenband, a creation from the esteemed Brouwerij Liefmans based in Oudenaarde, Belgium, stands as one of the world's most distinguished dark beers. This Flanders Oud Bruin, originally known as IJzerenband, underwent a transformation, not just in name to Goudenband but also in its packaging, adopting a champagne cork. The brewing process involves open vat fermentation with a mix, followed by maturation ranging from four to 12 months in the cellar. The matured beer is then blended with younger beer, initiating a fresh fermentation cycle. The result? A beer that improves with age, much like a fine wine. With an aroma that boasts caramel, apple, rhubarb, and cherries, its taste offers a blend of apple, cherries, woody nuances, nuts, and dried raisins. The mild acidity of this beer makes it an ideal companion for blue cheese. With an ABV of 8%, this beer promises a taste that remains fresh even after a decade.

Brouwerij Liefmans, a name synonymous with Belgian brewing excellence, presents the Liefmans Goudenband, a testament to their brewing expertise and dedication to quality. This Flanders Oud Bruin, with its deep roots in history, was once known as IJzerenband, a nod to the iron bands that encircled its beer barrels. However, with time, not only did the name evolve to Goudenband, but the packaging also saw a transformation, adopting a sophisticated champagne cork.

The brewing process of the Goudenband is nothing short of art. It undergoes fermentation in open vats with a mix of yeasts, and then it's left to mature in the cellar for a period ranging from four to 12 months. This maturation process allows the beer to develop its unique flavour profile. Once matured, it's blended with younger beer, setting off a new fermentation cycle. This meticulous process ensures that the Goudenband is a beer that can be stored and will only improve with age, much like a vintage wine.

Tasting Notes:

  • Appearance: Deep amber with a tinge of ruby, crowned with a frothy beige head.
  • Aroma: A delightful bouquet of caramel, apple, rhubarb, cherries, and malt.
  • Flavour: A harmonious blend of apple, cherries, and woody undertones. The backdrop reveals hints of nuts and dried raisins, making every sip a discovery.
  • Mouthfeel: Smooth with a mildly acidic finish, leaving a lingering taste that beckons for another sip.

The beer's mild acidity makes it a versatile companion for food pairings, especially blue cheese. For those with a penchant for gourmet experiences, pairing it with a cheese platter or even desserts can elevate the dining experience.

In conclusion, Liefmans Goudenband is more than just a beverage; it's a celebration of Belgian brewing heritage. Whether you're a seasoned beer lover or someone venturing into the world of dark beers, Goudenband promises an experience that's both timeless and memorable. So, why wait?
