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.

Goudgeel, nevelig bier met minimale, witte schuimkraag. Aroma van gist, graan, citrus. Fris. Vooral bitter, zeer licht zoet en zuur. Licht tot medium body. Medium co2.

Luneylane (36) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - SEP 1, 2016
A surprise discovery, along with its tripel cousin, at Welcome in Muzha. Drunk in time-honoured fashion at home. Aroma: predominantly yeasty. Appearance: clear, copper-coloured. A foamy pour; frothy, persistent head. medium-bodied, bitter and astringent. Taste: there’s a sweet element in there, but it doesn’t last. This is decent but not particularly memorable.

Keg tap at Bedford Brewhouse & Kitchen. Golden, clear with a small white head. Quite a lot of carbonation. Yeasty sugar candy aroma with a bit of citrus. Taste starts off a bit sharp but then mellows. There’s a metallic, astringent aftertaste and the body is quite thin. Has quite a few issues but OK overall I guess.

Good lacing, pale yellow head with amber appearance. Aroma of banana, sweet malt. The taste is unexpected. Would recommend to my friends as it is too sweet.

Decent but not great. Too sweet. A little bubble gummy. No bitterness to balance it out. Kind of disappointed.

LazyPyro (570) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2016
330ml bottle. Hazy copper colour with a small white head. Aroma is bready, yeast, banana, light herb/spice. Taste is bready, banana, fruit, spice, wheat, bittersweet. Carbonation seems soft in the glass but stronger on the palate, pushes the flavours around nicely.
