A copper coloured beer with the aroma of honey. It has a full and smooth flavour and a soft, flowing aftertaste.

An authentic abbey ale
The age-old tradition of the White Canons of Tongerlo lives on in this officially recognised Belgian abbey ale.

Re-fermented in the bottle
Re-fermentation in the bottle gives the beer a more intense taste and aroma as well as a longer shelf life.

DrNosha (678) - Baden Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - NOV 18, 2015
33cl Flasche. Dunkel goldenes Bier mit schönem hellem Schaum. Süsslich getreidiger Duft mit einem Hauch Apfel und tropischen Früchten. Recht süffig. Im Abgang etwas Hefe. Das Bier ist nicht schlecht, aber worlds best beer bei den World Beer Awards 2014??

strap (612) - Seoul, SOUTH KOREA - NOV 7, 2015
the label says this was the world’s best beer in 2014. i’m not sure who showed up at the 2014 world beer awards. i suspect some of the stronger contenders sat that competition out. don’t get me wrong, this isn’t a bad beer, but far from the best in the world. a copperish color, with a sweet flavor and aroma. a little honey, maybe some light berries. has a dry finish and some off notes that would keep me from calling it the best in the world.

TrappistLove (15) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 17, 2015
Visited Brussels and Bruges n saw it was voted best beer in the world for 2014. So of course I had to try it! A bit disappointed, tried it at a bar then gave it another try on a 1L bottle. Just too hoppy n light to be an abbey beer. Taste more like a Hefeweizen. Of course better than an American beer!

33cl bottle at home. Pours a clear copper colour with a big white head. Aroma’s of banana, yeast, malt, spices. Taste is pretty much the same as the aroma plus some honey notes and some fruits. Texture is creamy with a very lively carbonation.
