COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Lonick (1141) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 18, 2016
Bottle @Eurovision 2016 tasting. Pours golden thinnish white head. Nose is orange, banana and bread. Taste is more of the same but with a big bubblegum finish. Solid beer.

PotjeBier (2471) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2016
Small sample from tap. Clear golden color. Creamy, rocky white head with good lacing. Aroma’s: fruit (apricot), caramel malt. Retronasal: caramel malt, , light herbs, light grain. Flavor is light sweet, light grainish sourness. Medium bodied. Finishes slightly herbal, moderate bitter. Decent, but uninspiring.

Some sweetness and a full bodied malty bottom hides beneath a crown of white foam. Average belgian ale.

Icedwarf (1134) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2016
Helder donkergeel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht zoet, bitter hoppig en kruidig met iets van vanille en banaan. Smaak blijft redelijk lang hangen.

allmyvinyl (8809) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 19, 2016
Bottle thanks to Ashton McCobb. Pours hazy pale gold with a thin white head, near-flat. Aromas of banana, candied orange, light spice. Taste is bready, light white pepper, dry finish. Faintest prickle of carbonation helps.

AshtonMcCobb (4899) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 19, 2016
Sample bottle from Dunns. Appearance - golden with steady bubbles. The head disappears very quickly for this style. Nose - banana and candied orange. Taste - tangy orange and light spice, maybe white pepper. Palate - close to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry tangy texture. Overall - this totally grew on me.

Una cerveza suave pese a su graduación, no deja mucho sabor en boca. En mi opinión aprueba muy justo.

Golden pour from draft at fountainhead. Tons of sticky white head. A lil bubblegum and much spice. Not bad but wouldn’t seek this out again
