COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Douberd (1692) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2014
330 ml bottle a t home, into a tulip. ABV 7% Dark brown colour on the body, small sized light brown head, with okay retention, leaving minimal lacing on the glass. Very nice aroma, fruity, red grapes, vinous notes, spices. Tastes nice too, again fruity with lots of spices, herbs, the vinous notes still present, bubblegum, juniper berries (?) Medium body, good carbonation, mildly dry on the palate. Very good, not your ordinary dubbel, I see now gruut (a herb mix) listed on the ingredients, makes great difference.

33 cl bottle. Pours a dark brown, clear with white head that disappates quickly. It has ana roma of dried fruits and rum soaked christmas cake. The taste is sweet with a slight bitter finish. The palate is medium body with sticky texture. Overall: decent dubbel

Donker rood bruin bier met een intense smaak. Zoet bier met caramel, kandij, en lichte rooksmaak. Smaak blijft lang hangen. Geslaagd product..

Excalibur123 (62) - Soria, SPAIN - FEB 24, 2014
Color ámbar oscuro, media cabeza de espuma beige que desaparece rápidamente; en nariz aromas a malta tostada, café, ciruelas pasas y caramelo. En boca entrada muy maltosa con notas a cáscara de naranja, pos gusto dulce apreciándose notas a especias y cilantro, con cuerpo y carbónico medios; cerveza con un sabor peculiar que proviene de la adicción de una mezcla de diez hierbas aromáticas.

RW80 (341) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2014
0.33 cl bottle. Appearance:deep reddish brown with a offwhite head. Aroma: dark fruit ,yeast and caramelised malts. Taste: Spicey tea like aroma in combination with caramelised malts. Quite strong taste.Powerfull and unique but lacks complexity elements and a the aftertaste is short. Slightly over carbonated, thin-medium texture. Interesting and unique on it’s own, but there is some room for improvement.

rikstar (556) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2014
0,33l fles thuis. kleur is donker amber / bruin met een opvalend witte kraag en gistdeeltjes. geur is zoetig, gekookte wortels parfum achtig. Smaak is een beetje typisch zoetig geparfummeerd. In de afdronk komt een biitertje door. Komt artificial over

Moravius (275) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2014
Flasche (als Adelardus Haspengouwse Dubbel). - Kastanienbraun. Intensive Nase mit schwerer, fruchtiger Süße, Rosinen, Lakritz und einer eigenartigen, parfümähnlichen Gewürznote. Auch im malzsüßen Antrunk dominiert diese penetrante, etwas künstlich wirkende würzige Note, die irgendwo zwischen Lakritz und Zimt angesiedelt ist, vor allem aber an parfümierte Seife erinnert. Laut Website der Brauerei handelt es sich dabei um Gruut, eine Mischung aus zehn heimischen Kräutern („een mengeling van een 10-tal verschillende inheemse kruiden“). Neben dieser penetranten Würze bietet das Bier die intensive Süße von braunem Kandis, Röstmalz, Mokka und Lakritz, abgerundet von zarter, pikanter Säure. Im Abgang röstmalzige, holzige Herbe. - Das könnte ein gutes Dubbel sein, wäre da nicht das stark gewöhnungsbedürftige, aufdringliche Gewürzaroma. Eigentlich eine gute Idee, dieses historisch belegte Verfahren der Aromatisierung von Bier mit Gewürzen neu zu beleben, aber das Ergebnis überzeugt mich nicht so recht - es wirkt einfach zu künstlich.
