Gulden Draak beer isn't just a beer. It's a masterpiece. As many of you may know from reading the blog, and as my friends on Facebook know, I enjoy my adult beverages. I'm not out of control or anything, but I enjoy a rich, tasty beer. Gulden Draak is a beer I only recently became aware of, but I am so glad I did!
Gulden Draak Beer - Like No Other
I didn't discover my love of beer until more recent years, but ever since I had that first sip of a "good" beer, there was no turning back! I've had everything from the stuff you get in the cooler section of supermarkets to micro brews in little pubs tucked away in secret corners of cities. I'm no stranger to good beers and not-so-good beers, but in all of that time, I've never had a beer quite like Gulden Draak!
Gulden Draak beer combines the traditional brewing techniques that have been used in its production for over 300 years with the state of the art brewing technologies of today to bring us beer lovers a dark brown triple ale that is bold, rich, full bodied, full of flavor, and more substantial than any other beer I've ever had. When I drink this beer, I can practically taste the tradition of authentic Belgium brewing tradition on my tongue. It's good, good beer. It's an especially good beer for sipping with some simple snacks - you don't want anything that is going to overpower the beer itself!
And it should be with a name like Gulden Draak. First of all, it literally translates to "Golden Dragon", which is awesome. Secondly, there's a Belgian legend about a dragon that protects a unique and precious treasure. Uh... Gulden Draak - A golden dragon protecting a precious treasure - their amazing beer. From the bottle to the flavor to the super cool glass I got to drink it in, this is a winner on so many levels.

I'm not a beer drinker, I'm a whiskey drinker...but your description and the bottle alone makes me want to try it out! I love the name as well as the legend.
Well, it looks like an upscale beer!! I like beer on a hot sunny day...if my area has these I'll be sure to try it.
I am kind of a picky beer drinker but this one looks and sounds like my kind of beer. Will have to see if I can get it locally.
I am sober and no longer drink, but everyone around me appreciates a good beer. Some are even into craft beers, so I will have to share this with them, I like knowing a little bit about everything, even beer!
I bet my brother in law would like this beer. He's the one who loves to taste new flavors of it in our family. 🙂
