Wonderful hop aroma intertwined with roasty-sweet duble. Roasty-earth hop flavor with a hint of sweetness, subtle strong roasty finish that lingers. Nice complexity Lighter mouthfeel with an underlying hop-pine citrus. Deep amber-brown-orane color. Thin white head.

Benzai (8754) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2014
Draught @ Achelse Kluis. Clear autumnal red-brown color, medium sized off-white to beige head that leaves fair lacing. Smell and taste malts, slightly metallic, nuts, a hint of caramel, a hint of dark fruits and it also reminds me of some sort of candy I used to get as a kid, but I have no idea what it was called. Average body, average to medium carbonation.

turbothy (1111) - Bonn, GERMANY - JUN 29, 2014
On tap at the monastery. Pours nice and brown (well, duh) with a decent head. Surprising sour flavour - it reminds me a bit of an Oud Bruin. Would be an excellent session beer; a shame it canít be had on bottles.

MaartenRF10 (1613) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2014
Tap in de Achelse Kluis. Helder colakleurig, bijna witte kraag. Vrij waterig bier, vleugje caramel mout en een klein bittertje. Blond is beter.

Op de tap bij trappistrij achel. Mooi donker van kleur met een matige schuimkop. Licht hoppig met een waterige nasmaak. Al met al wel een lekker biertje om op een warme dag Door te drinken

prawlie (1173) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2013
On draught at the Achel Cafe on a Podge Beer Tour. Red-brown with a fair head. Smooth and lightly malty, a bit of a mild, English-style. Pales in comparison to the Achel 8 Bruin.
