Beer of high fermentation with re-fermentation in the bottle.
A strong ale, dark triple.
Gulden Draak has been breathing fire at the Van Steenberge brewery since 1986.
The name 'Gulden Draak' refers to the gilded dragon statue at the top of the Ghent Belfry. Legend has it that the dragon graced the bow of the ship used by Norwegian Sigurd Magnusson on his crusade in 1111. The statue still stands guard on top of the Ghent Belfry today as a symbol for the ciry's freedom and power.
The power of Gulden Draak is best expressed in its unique glass, which is a tribute to the legend of the gilden dragon: a mysterious dragon's egg resting on the strenght of a rock. The secondary fermentation uses unique wine yeasts to achieve the unparalleled flavour of Gulden Draak. The wine yeast Jozef Van Steenberge brought with him from Bordeaux region in 1985 ensures Gulden Draak is very drinkable despite its strong character.
