Too decadent for me, just doesn't sit right. Give me a dusty bottle with no label and a white or pink mark any ol' day. Part of the beauty of truly great beer for me is its simplicity. Masterful manipulation/coaxing/communion with common natural ingredients. Admittedly, my rather strong feelings about the flaunting of wealth come in to play here as well. I'm not saying it won't taste good, I just don't like the vibe.

I wonder if gold flakes have a charge to them?  It would be something if they turned into finings for polyphenols and got a gross looking coating on them.  Huh? Roll Eyes

AND !! If that already isn't enough  Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked
I just discovered a similar beer on the Anthony Martin website, during some research for another thread.
Already my second surprise, after discovering that Teku glass.

Please, have alook at this: http://finestshop.be/nl/geschenkverpakkingen/185-gordon-finest-gold-24/

Gordon Finest Gold 24 gift pack including two small tasting glasses at a stunning € 49.00







Gordon Finest Gold 24 + 2 glasses 15cl

Flecked with 24-carat gold in suspension, Gordon Finest Gold 24 is a powerful but generous blonde beer. Its bitter flavour is softened by its high alcohol content, assisted by the clear malts and the precious metal that develop its velvet-like taste in a caressing conclusion. An instant collector’s beer ! 
Taste-wise ...
Excellent strong lager, with a generous, silky note. Gordon® Finest Gold® has a bitter taste, rounded out by its high alcohol content with the help of a light malt which fleshes out its smooth taste, like a tasty caress in its finishing touch.
Alcohol : 10%
Colour : Blond
Fermentation : Low
Type : Strong Lager

Seems like a new (gold) rage has been introduced. Amazing for sure......

Cheers,
Filip

Soon it will be time to create a new category in the beer tasting section called Gold Beers. Or would these be considered Golden Ales?   chin

Hi John,
You make me puzzle Smiley

Anyway, quite some remarkable evolutions lately. Aren't we in a Euro crisis these days  Huh? Huh?

Hi,
This, just for the record.
The ever first beer, made with pure gold flakes was done in France at brasserie I-Bière.
The name: 24 Carats
Top-fermenting non-pasteurized, filtered and fermented in the bottle, it is designed and manufactured by the Brasserie du Pays Fleming.

Quote: "The 24 Carat beer is made in the same tradition of beer brewed in Flanders". Can you imagine  Huh?

I'm sure it would greatly pair with this dessert  Grin Grin Grin

The beer could actually be the same as the regular Gordon Finest Gold, but indeed with gold flakes added, and luxury packaging-bottling.
After all, the name is nearly the same (only the adding of 24), also 10 vol%, and also bottom fermented.

I suppose it is only a matter of waiting for the Gordon Finest Platinum .950. at 12vol%  Roll Eyes spiced with platinum flakes.

I was asking myself if those Gordon Finest beers are actually brewed in Belgium or in The Netherlands  Huh?

Cheers,
Filip
