COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A pale, strong, fruity, hoppy Trappist ale from one of Belgium’s six official abbey breweries. Achel 8° is hard to find even in Belgium; in the U.S. it’s up there with the rarest of beers. This blond, flavorful beer is a surprisingly refreshing brew at 8% alcohol by volume. It is lightly filtered, but still wholesomely hazy with yeast remaining and refermenting in the bottle.

Bouteille de 330 ml dégustée à l’Auberge des douceurs belges à Québec le 9 septembre 2009. Bière blonde cuivrée tirant sur le roux, voilée. Col mince et crémeux, très persistant. Très peu effervescente. Odeur de levure. Très douce, très sucrée, un peu amère en finale. Très savoureuse, goût de miel caramélisé, de levure. Un peu âcre en finale. Excellent, alcool bien caché, se boit bien.

venom666 (332) - Alicante, SPAIN - MAY 26, 2014
Beer in the glass shows the classic look of a Tripel with a white gold head and an intense aroma rich in yeast, hops and some citrus. In the mouth, floral and citrus notes with a dry finish, slightly bitter and alcoholic. Very refreshing.
