Such an impressive symbol that has been around for more than 6 centuries requires an equally impressive beer. Like the dragon at the top of the city, Gulden Draak has been one of the world's best beers for years. It is a dark tripel, which in itself makes it an exceptional beer, but the complex taste with notes of caramel, roasted malt and coffee makes it unique.
For the secondary fermentation use is made of a wine yeast that determines the unparalleled taste and that ensures the long-term taste evolution. The older the beer gets, the more complex the aromas and the fuller the taste and colour become.
The beer is a dark, ruby red, with aromas of sweet, lightly roasted malt and coffee. The taste and mouthfeel is full, with hints of chocolate and caramel, with a long and bittersweet finish.
