Named for an ancient abbey that once stood in the hometown of one of the brewery's founders, Guldenberg Belgian Abbey Ale is a Belgian Strong Ale that pours clear gold with a frothy white head.

The hops profile is elevated by a technique called dry-hopping which takes full advantage of the Hallertau-style hops used and adds a lively and spicy bitterness.

Top fermented and bottle conditioned, aromas include citrus, honey, malt and, of course, hops.

Taste follows the nose and also includes notes of banana and spice, pear and apple, wood and yeast.

The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and the finish is dry with a lingering bitterness. The ABV is a well hidden 8.5%.

Food Pairings

This massively complex beer beautifully complements herb-encrusted pork, boiled lobster or shellfish, and will also hold up to the spiciest meat dishes and sharp or pungent cheeses, even including Limburger.

The candy sugar and fruit elements make Guldenberg a surprising and satisfying alternative to dessert wine.

The De Ranke Brewery was founded in 1996 by good friends Nino Bacelle and Guido Devos, hobby brewers who turned a part-time obsession into a successful commercial venture.

At first brewing only on weekends using the equipment and facilities of an existing craft brewery, De Ranke soon established a reputation for producing robust and flavorful ales with a massive hops profile; hops, in their philosophy, are the single most important ingredient in any ale. They embraced traditional brewing methods (without eschewing helpful new technologies) and used only the freshest natural ingredients like real hop flowers instead of cheap hop extracts like many of their larger more commercially driven counterparts.

As a result, De Ranke brews grew steadily in popularity and demand; in the late 2000s, De Ranke was able to relocate to its own brewery in Dottignies in the Hainaut province of Belgium.

Today, De Ranke Brewery exports award winning hop-centric ales to nine different countries including the United States, India, France and Japan.
