Made in open vats with beer of mixed fermentation, the Goudenband is left to mature for four to 12 months in the cellar. The mature beer is then fortified with younger beer, so the fermentation process starts up again. The result is a dry, lightly caramelised malt flavour, enriched with fruity notes and hints of nuts and dried raisins.
