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.

Flaske. Farven er gylden og ufiltreret, og skummet er hvidt og tæt. Aromaen er humle (dejligt), alkohol og frugt. Smagen er gær og citrusfrugt og alkohol. I eftersmagen kommen humlen frem igen. Skøn øl.

joeneugs (5269) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 6, 2015
330 ml. bottle. It pours a medium orange gold color with a foamy off white head that shrinks rather quickly. The aroma is baked apple with some cinnamon spice, caramel and alcohol esters. Rich bready and caramel malts. The flavor is the same. Strong bread, honey and caramel along with some baked apple and peppery spice near the finish. Bottle date says 11/3/17 but there is already some signs of age with a bit of almond/sherry oxidation notes. Medium low spicy bitterness. Fizzy carbonation aids the mouthfeel in an otherwise full, alcoholic body. A bit in the sweet side and oxidized end, but still a good Belgian

SkillsFactory (450) - ITALY - DEC 3, 2015
Dorata, velata dai lieviti, schiuma bianca, pannosa in superficie e grossolana lungo il bordo del bicchiere, di buona persistenza. Aroma di chiodi di garofano e miele, fieno, note di banana matura. Al palato prevalgono chiodi di garofano e miele, leggera coda erbacea e leggermente "piccante", prevale comunque la componente maltata. Corpo medio, medio-pieno, ben carbonata.

Bottle. Pours is clear golden sparkling with big persistent creamy white head. Aroma of malts, butter, floral. Taste is light sweet, first sip followed by light bitterness, floral mouthfeel. Medium body, lively carbonation, creamy texture. Lovely beer, although I like achel bruin a bit more.
