Gulden Draak 9000 (ABV 10.5%) from the Van Steenberge Brewery is a Belgian Quadrupel Ale. It's lighter in color than a typical Quad, pouring deep amber with a fine white head.

It is top fermented, with a secondary fermentation using wine yeast in the bottle.

Caramel malt (3 kinds of malt are used) dominates in the aroma, along with dates and raisins. The flavor is similar, sweet but complex, with the caramel deepening to toffee, and a bit of apricot and spice making an appearance.

The body is creamy, with medium carbonation.

Food Pairings

Pair with buttery cheeses like Brie, Gouda, Havarti, or Swiss, and sharp cheeses like Blue and Cheddar. Terrific with beef, smoky barbecue, and wild game.

Located in Ertvelde, a village in the East Flanders region of Belgium, the Van Steenberge Brewery began in 1784 as a farm brewery (like many hundreds of others in the region) selling beer to local cafes and pubs.

The brewcraft evident in the ales produced resulted in increasing demand; over time, beer revenue significantly outpaced farming revenue, allowing the Van Steenberge heirs to concentrate fully on the brew business.

Today, still family-owned in the sixth generation, the Van Steenberge Brewery distributes award winning ales to more than a dozen countries including Italy, Spain, and the United States.
