.5l can from Timisoara supermarket. Clear brown-gold, small head. Richer lager, premium strong style essentially. Richer malt, brownish, not terrible. Not sure what it is ’authentic’ towards. Creamy body.

"Authentic flavour", all right, an authentic pale lager. Okay, it’s not really that bad but I’m dinging extra points for false advertising.

GuideDogSaint (477) - Xiamen, CHINA - SEP 13, 2014
500ml can from Carrefour, Xiamen. Pours golden with a disappearing white head. Malt aroma. Metallic taste with a hint of Belgian style abbey beer. Not too bad.

wimpyjoe (4424) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2014
Can from Carrefour, Nice. Golden-amber with no head. There’s enough pale ale style Abbey ale influence here, especially in its aroma, however it transgresses into a very ordinary lager in aroma and taste as well and really struggles to find its own character because of it.

harrisoni (14104) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2014
Can from Carrefour and drunk at home. Clear pale amber gold colour with lasting thin off white head. It’s a light blond Belgian ale. Tastes like a Belgian yeast rather than a lager yeast. Just a light commercial Belgian ale. Decent I thought, nothing wrong. Some sting on the finish. Absolutely fine as a beer.

Pours a clear near copper color. Sweet, malty aroma. Taste is sweet with caramel and malts.

Argonian (280) - Athens, GREECE - JAN 3, 2014
Straight from the can for this one. Malty-based aroma, nice taste with a pleasant bitterness at the start, fades away in the end. Nice carbonation level, thin to medium body, watery texture. Ok, not an abbey beer, but not that bad.

gunnar (5656) - Sandnes, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2013
50 cl can from Carrefour, Chania. Pours clear golden small white head. Aroma is very shy malty, weak fruits. Taste is the same, malty caramel, touch of butterscothc, very high carbonated, not a brew for me. Artificial.

SilkTork (5273) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2013
Can. Typical supermarket Leffe clone. Perfumed strong lager. Easy drinking and pleasant and cheap. Unexciting and unrefined but drinkable.

erickok (3790) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JAN 13, 2013
Golden bubbly brew with frothy grey head. Very mild aroma, light sweet maltsand raisin . Very straightforward and simple. Heavy carbonation, buttertaste and llittle malty caramel. No hop to be found. Unexciting, but evenworse it tastes bbuttery and artificial. Please stop brewing this and marketing it as an authentic abbey beer. You’re misleading customers and giving them tasteless swill. (50cl can, labelled as Carrefour l’Abbaye, brewed by EMB 62765) Note that this a different beer than the 75cl bottles sold by the same name...
