Liefmans Goudenband is a beer for storing, and just keeps improving over the years like a fine wine. Even after ten years, this dark red beer tastes as fresh as ever. You'll immediately pick up on the wonderful aromas of caramel, apple, rhubarb, cherries and malt. On the taste buds you will find hints of apple and cherries, combined with woody notes, while the aftertaste hints at nuts and dried raisins. The mildly acidic taste make this beer a perfect match for blue cheese.
Deep brown, tawny hue; beige foam. Warm, grainy scents at first, then nuts, toasted bread aromas. The cleanness of it refreshes the palate as sweet, biscuity flavors of dried fruit and sugary bread impress the taste buds. Aftertaste is extended, elegant and nutty. -P.P.
