Br. Van Steenberge
Aged in Whiskey Barrels
750 ml bottle
Date bottled: 2/2014
Appearance: dense orange/amber body with a one and a half finger pour
Nose: nice light oak whiskey note; toasted candi sugar; stone fruit; golden raisin;
Flavor: pretty much follows the nose; stone fruits - white peach and a light apricot; white grape, golden raisin, pear, and gala apple in the mix; a creamy vanilla marshmallow swirls on the palate; light parmesan toasted cracker with a hint of white pepper on the back
Mouthfeel: sweet; malt focused; sweet candied fruits; light creamy feel; lingering sweetness - like me!
To the Point: for those who say, 'just buy the Gulden Draak' this has to be the G.D. 9000 aged in Whiskey Barrels. I'll ask them at Global Beer. Gulden Draak is a dark brown color and 9000 is more golden-orange. This is a very nice barrel aged ale anyways. I have had this before and always enjoyed it.
