Beer Style

Young Belgian, Top Fermented Blond Ale



The Beer

Wilderen Goud is a pure malt beer, quite fruity with an enjoyably dry aftertaste. Wilderen Goud was launched in July 2011 and is a robust everyday drinking beer, perfect after a walk or cycle ride or to take with you on a trip.

Little wonder that this beer is a hit in student cafés. “This is a beer everyone likes and easily accessible”, is brewer Mike’s opinion.

“Not complex or extreme but very tasty.” It makes a perfect alternative to the lighter, blonde abbey beers and it is an excellent thirst quencher with a rounded taste.

Mike Janssen developed Wilderen Goud in collaboration with brew master Roland Vanderlinden, whose CV also includes a stint at Ter Dolen brewery.


Alcohol

6.2% ABV

Fermentation

Top-fermentation. re-fermented in the bottle.

Ingredients

Water, yeast, malt, hops, sugar

Colour & Transparency

Beautifully transparent, golden blond, slightly copper-coloured (orange) beer.


Serving Temperature

4 – 6 °C / 39 ° F – 42 °F

Serving Glass

The rather eccentric serving glass was designed by the brewery itself and is unmatched by anything else on the beer glass market. The design of this unusual ‘jam jar’ is now iconic. You can purchase it from the brewery and in other outlets.


Character, Tastes & Aromas

Fruity (yellow fruit-peaches-white grapes), slightly bitter, touches of caramel, a mild after-taste and a white, firm collar. Wonderful carbonisation.


Culinary

In the kitchen this beer will make a perfect combination with ingredients that reinforce the taste of the beer and are noticeable as aromas within the beer.

We suggest a combination with pork, fruit (peaches) and strong spices such as curry, sage, chilli...


Keeping and Storage

This is a beer without airs and graces. It is best consumed as young as possible. In view of the beer’s alcohol content and it general character, there is no point in storing it for years.

There will not be a further evolution in taste to enhance this brew.


Availability

Bottle ✔       On Tap

As one of the main brews which Wilderen produces it is available throughout the entire year at the brewery as well as via resellers and some supermarkets.

Wilderen Goud is (as are Wilderen Kriek and Tripel Kanunnik) steadily gaining fans not only on a domestic level but also outside of Belgium.

It is also available at some of the better specialized bars and cafés and of course (online) beer shops.
