Gulden Draak Classic
For the secondary fermentation use is made of a wine yeast that determines the unparalleled taste and that ensures the long-term taste evolution (= living beer). The older the beer gets, the more aroma it gets and the fuller the taste and color become.
So it is certainly worth keeping a few large bottles and allowing them to mature for many years.

Gulden Draak is easy to drink as an aperitif, dessert or just when you have time to enjoy. This “barley wine” harmonises perfectly with and in stews and with a Ghent stew in particular. It also gives added value to sauces with red meat such as bordelaise and is also ideal as a dessert beer, especially with dark chocolate.
