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.

ForlornHope (337) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2015
Bottle at home. Red-brown colour with an off-white head. The pour disturbs the sediment, so my sample has a fair bit of yeast in suspension. Not much aroma, the usual slight yeast and sugar notes. Taste is slightly sweet with some balancing bitterness. Quite rich on the palate with tastes of sweet malt, dried fruits and dusty cocoa. Only average as far as dubbels go.

seynie (313) - Tienen, BELGIUM - NOV 26, 2015
Dark beer with a small head. Dark malts, spices, nuts, some grapes, some alcohol as well. Not too sweet, dry and mineral in the finish. Pleasant beer

Grumbo (1083) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2015
Bottle from an unrecorded source. Poured a hazy chestnut brown colour with a small beige head. Aroma is a mix of spice and perfume along with nutmeg, nut, chocolate and caramel malts. Medium bodied, slick texture, average carbonation. Medium sweet, with low level bitterness. OK...

I wasn’t too impressed by this Abbey Dubel. The mixture of spices never seems to find a real balance and I missed a specific character.
