Gulden Draak

Texas is becoming a great place for craft beer. Not only does it seem that some brewery from around the states is coming into Texas but we are getting new imports as well. One of the newer ones is from Brouwerij Van Steenberge in the Belgium. We are actually lucky to get mutliple different beers from this brewery. This particular one is a dark brown Triple Ale, which as their website says is the exception to most triples. Most triples are golden in color.
The Beer: This triple weighs in at 10.5% and pours a rbuy brown with at hick pillowy dense head of slightly off white foam. The nose is fruity and yeasty, brown sugar, raisins, malty. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, good carbonation, sweet, figs, malt, raisins, caramal, fig tart. A slight earthy hoppiness. Candied figs. Good beer, slightly sweet. This one gets a B+ from me. Here's what the folks at BA have to say.
