Gulden Draak Barrel Aged Calvados is the second in the series of Gulden Draak Quad barrel aged beers. The brewer ages Gulden Draak Quad 9000 in Calvados (Apple Cider Brandy) barrels for roughly 4-6 months. An ideal length of time for the residual flavors of the barrels to meld with the beer. This is a beer unlike any you’ve ever tasted. Once again Jef Versele from Brewery Van Steenberge produces a gem for all to enjoy.
Our brewmaster, Jef Versele, crafted this exclusive Gulden Draak Brewmasters Edition as a tribute to his grandfather Jozef Van Steenberge and the 230th birthday of the brewery. His inspiration came from his numerous trips to the United States and his deepest respect for the craft beer culture. This exclusive Gulden Draak combines the technology and the craftsmenship of the traditional brewing process. By letting the beer mature on whiskey barrels it gives it a distinctive and gental finish that you have never tasted before.
