What a completely two faced belgian. The pour had this one at a very light golden yellow with medium carbonation and i mean the most beautiful suspended yeast particles..this got me excited as you can see. The aroma had some of the funkiest stuff ive smelled before...yeast...grains..chlorine... yeah, i did just say chlorine, honey, and a lambic like sourness. The taste however killed whatever suspense got built up during the pre-tasting. Aside from a yeast presence, i could taste nothing other than a mild alcoholic ending. Very little of anything was present here aside from yeastiness. Very dry and melancholy finish...very uninteresting. The carbonation died down considerably but the aroma was still just as entrancing as the first time i smelled it 20 minutes later. Ah, the tale of the two faced belgian....

Had from bottle at The 12 Hour Belgian Beer Party at Pizza Port Carlsbad on March 8, 2003
#43 on the Beer Fest program. The Achel 8, compared to the Bruin is lighter with a slightly doughy aorma. Appears creamy with tiny particles and a nice blonde coloring. The flavor is great - spicy, sour, tart. It's a complex Belgian with a nice taste and great finish.

Light gold color. Smallish head. Aroma is floral and honey. A nice Belgian Blonde. Typical Belgian flavors, yeasty, spicy and fruity. Yeast and malty. Very complex flavor. Light and refreshing. Nice beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

MikeF (538) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 6, 2003
Murky godlen yellow with a nice fluffy white head. Very rich in flavor despite light color. Quite yeasty with a good balance of spice and bitterness. Certainly worth a try.

Bottle. A hazy golden color with a foamy white head. Citrus, sweet candy, and light as a feather. The fruits are more subtle than many beers in this style.
