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.

Vells (1402) - Rīga, Latvija, LATVIA - JAN 15, 2016
At first seems too soapy, then it kinda settles down, some herbal hoppines rises, with some light malty qualities, light yeast, at some point bit too thin, yet it gives wonderful refreshing qualities.. would love it in summer. Light sweet with moderate to light lasting bitterness in aftertaste. Decent.

De couleur blond la mousse et assez épaisse et crémeuse Orléans va trouver des arômes de malt et céréale En bouche on trouve tout le goût d’une Belgian triple Une amertume correcte d’un taux d’alcool correct on va sortir une petite pointe d’acidité en fin de bouche Elle est vraiment très bonne enfin bref c’est une Trappist donc la question ne se pose même pas!!!

Lele (368) - Padova, ITALY - DEC 30, 2015
ASPETTO: biondo abbastanza chiaro, schiuma fine, persistente e abbastanza abbondante. AROMA: soprattutto speziato e fruttato (frutta gialla). Intenso. GUSTO: all’attacco dolce e fruttata (frutta gialla), rivela anche sentori mielosi e di scorza di pane. Leggero amarognolo sul finale. Veramente ottimo lavoro!

javiercrasher (273) - Granada, SPAIN - DEC 14, 2015
Rubia, reluciente y algo nublada. Con una buena capa de espuma blanca, esponjosa y con buena retención. En nariz compleja: frutal, levadura y algo de alcohol. Cuerpo medio y gasificación moderada. En boca muy equilibrada: frutal, ligeramente dulce, un poco de pan y calidez alcohólica que no molesta. Una gran cerveza.

Gubihumle (540) - Nørre Aaby, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2015
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.
