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.

Kauge (1557) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 22, 2016
Bottle from Koht. BB 12.11.2016. Wants to jump out the bottle upon opening... Pours slightly hazy golden with a creamy white, persistent and lacing head. The aroma is grainy-wheaty-yeasty-fruity. Bubblegum in retronasals, tastes sweet with a citric bitter finish. Crisp, light and refreshing on the palate. Really nice soothing warmth, but not at all boozy, in fact, the drinkability of this is awesome. Very good overall, but falls short of my expectations. I guess it would be better more fresh - at points I got some near strange hints in the aroma. Dunno, considering the price tag, I’d stick with Tripel Karmeliet.

Pretty good blond. Quality decreases with the later sips. Too much carbonation, but it is equilibrated with the light body.

Trolleo (1276) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 28, 2016
Hazy golden color, medium sized white head. Sweet, hint of banana, some metallic notes. Taste is way too sweet, also mild banana. Sweet banana finish. Medium body, lively, too agressive carbonation. Overrated. //bottle at Craft Room
