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.

Licht troebel, goudblond bier met enorme witte schuimkraag. Malt en hop komen door in het aroma, verder kruidig en een beetje een grondsmaak. Lekker bitter, licht zoet en heel licht zurig. Goede balans. Zacht in de mond.

Currently I am updating my ratebeer with al the beers I drank but was too lazy to rate at the time. I give the scores I gave back than. If I drink the beers again I might re-rate them.

Citrus sinasappel perzik aroma heerlijk fruitig zacht. Immense carbonatie die wild en krachtig is on the zien. Prachtige schuimkraag end mooi gouden heldere kleur. Prachtig om te zien. Een van de zachtere trappisten een echte dorstlesser. Immense fruitige citrus smaak en een zachte warme bitter met bite in de afdronk. Tikkeltje teveel alcohol in de afdronk merkbaar aanwezig. Geweldige Trappist om mee te beginnen! Doet denken aan tremens en straffe hendrik

Wygląd jak na moje gusta bez zarzutu choć te pływające drobiny na dnie po ostrożnym laniu nie powinny się znajdować. W aromacie głównie słodowe, ponadto zbożowo-trawiaste, łąkowe. W smaku delikatna kwaskowość, spora goryczka, posmak owocowo-szampański. Piwo cholernie pijalne. Dobry i poprawny trappist blonde - ale piłem lepsze.

330 mL Bottle at Sin and Redemption. Golden Pour, Finger of dense rocky head that sticks around and leaves plenty on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, Belgian yeast, fruit. Taste is cereal grains, fruit, slight sweetness, nice hop finish. Medium body, carbonation. Excellently balanced Trappist.

0,33 bottle purchased in FYROM at the Beerstore of Marjan and consumed in Kosovo. It pours dark golden colour, slightly hazy (the description says it is "lightly filtered") with a huge and tick off-white foam. At the nose peach, jasmine, sweet and bread notes. Some light caramel. Mouth has a medium carbonation, round sweetness, malts. A great beer...it could have been better (I expected another complexity in the mouth).

Goudblond licht troebel met mooie witte schuimkraag. Aroma van hop, gist, brood. Heerlijke frisse trappist met bittere toets. Deze trappist is misschien de minst bejubelde of minst bekende maar oh zo lekker....

Bottle. Golden color with frothy lasting foam. Aroma: fresh, sour, butter, hint of dried apricots, grains, hint of pine. Nice. Taste is relatively sweet: although a sour taste permeates, almost white wine like, a sweet lacing always follows it. Bubblegum like even. Nonetheless, real nice.
