Adelardus abbey beer is the youngest descendant of our beers. This dark brown beer was made for the open house days of the abbey. Adelardus was one of the most important abbots for the abbey of Trudo and the city Sint-Truiden. He built the tower and rebuilded the existing church into one of the most monumental churches of that time. The ingredients are: brewing liqour, malt, yeast, hop, candy and ‘sweet gale’. ‘Sweet gale’ is a mixture of ten spices from the region, which gives the beer his typical flavour. The alcohol content of this abbey beer is 7 % vol.alc.

Classic dubbel. Brown sugar and slight dark fruit. Easy sipping and more sessionable than most

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
The glass says "dubbel-tripel", and it is dark and powerful stuff. The foam is airy and dirty yellow. Smells sweetly of schwarzbier-like malts, which also have a strong presence in the taste. Furthermore there is a nice belgian fizziness and a raspberry-like fruitiness. A hint of soy appears further out in the taste, which is nice.

Alengrin (2464) - BELGIUM - JUL 16, 2014
The dark abbey beer from this charming Limburg brewery, spiced with sweet gale, in rememberance of an ancient tradition, before the generalisation of hops. Light beige, mousse-like, regular, stable head, dark mahogany brown with a ruby hue; malty aroma with iron (perhaps a foam stabilising agent?) but also banana, raisins, yeast, black pepper, orange peel, gentle spice from the gale; malty and fruity taste in which the iron returns, as well as the subtle spicing, finish rather short, a bit monotonous in all.

DSG (6352) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks Stas. Hazy brown with a beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, cardboard, candies, cough syrup and dark fruits. Sweet flavor, candy-ish, with sugar, cough syrup, some dark fruits, some spice and cardboard. Medium-bodied.
