Gouden Arend is a golden blond beer to savour. It has a surprisingly delicate but pronounced hoppiness and a pleasant fruity aftertaste. With it’s citric, hoppy nose and the subtle touch of grapefruit in it’s taste, it’s the perfect appetite stimulant and a match to several tasty dishes.
“Gouden Arend” is especially brewed for the unique occasion of the 125th anniversary of the brewery in 2011 and exclusively sold in a limited edition decorated bottle. Since 2013 it is relaunched every september to celebrate the anniversary of the brewery. The name is a tribute to our founder Gustave De Ryck, who started the brewery originally under the name ‘De Golden Arendt’ , as a reference to his German teacher of the ‘zoom Goldenness Adler braveries’ in Bremen.
Brewery De Ryck was founded in 1886 by Gustave De Ryck under the name Brewery ’De Gouden Arend’, as a tribute to his teacher of ‘Brauerei zum goldenen Adler’ in Bremen, where he did his traineeship. At that time the brewery produced a blond and dark beer, ‘Uitzet’. Gustave was succeeded by his son Clément and his two daughters Valerie and Julia. Considering the brewery survived two world wars, we can conclude they were very dedicated to their tasks.
