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.

Hirotoma (471) - Bologna, ITALY - JAN 24, 2012
Bevuta ieri sera per la prima volta! Non eccezzionale all’inizio, poi prenda quota nell’aroma e con in finale decisamente prolungato. L’odore e’ accattivante!

ogivlado (5402) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 27, 2011
Bottled 330ml. -from De Bierkoning, Amsterdam as Adelardus Trudoabdijbier Dubbel. Murky pale brown coloured, small to medium sized beige head, dried fruits and spices in the nose. Light roasted malt, dried fruits and caramel with too strong spicy presence. Pretty ordinary dubbel.

MrHangover (2144) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2011
Bottle. Dark brown coloured beer with a beige head that quickly faints away. Aroma of hazelnuts, spices and malts. Also some fruityness present. Flavour is full, unbalanced (too bad) but stays long on the tongue. Decent dubbel, could have become much more.

mutz (490) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2011
Donker bier uit een flesje. Ruikt goed en ziet er goed uit. De smaak is zoetig met een onaangename afdronk.

GSAP (410) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2011
Waar het aroma zo vol mee zat (zoete rijke geur), komt in de smaak helaas niet terug. De nasmaak is zelfs karton-achtig. Van de fles @ de Roeëje Lieuw.
