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.

Belgijski półprodukt hipermarketowy. Nie ma co po takim cudów oczekiwać, ale za taką cenę (ok 6 zł) można w czasach kryzysu umiarkowanie smacznie się napić. Jasne, lekko ziołowe, mało wyraziste. Ujdzie.

Alengrin (2425) - BELGIUM - DEC 11, 2014
Tasted as Tongerlo Dubbel Blond years ago. Hazy orange blonde beer with medium thick, yellowish white head. Malt sweet character, too sweet for me, with not nearly enough hops for balance; orangey and peachy fruitiness as well, some weak grassy hops in the finish, bit thinnish and metallic, yeasty. Did not like this at all but it may have improved since then (with all the new hoppiness flourishing in Belgium) so I will retaste and, if applicable, rerate soon.

- Alcoholpercentage van 6,5% - Redelijk biertje destijds gedronken - Niet verkeerd, maar heb naar mijn smaak veel lekkerder biertjes gedronken - Vandaar mijn niet al te hoge waardering uiteindelijk ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Blond, white head. Some yeast, with citrus like fruit tastes. An everyday beer a bit like a Maredsous blonde

Bière d’abbaye classique, pas désagrèable. Dans la lignée de la Leffe blonde, sans plus.

Espuma de boa formação e persistência. Aroma de tangerina e caramelo. No sabor, tangerina, caramelo no meio e final com médio amargor e pouco adstringente. Refrescante e muito boa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Moebbels (355) - FINLAND - OCT 11, 2014
A clear golden body with a well-lasting white head. Nose has aromas of flowers, yeast, hay and honey. The taste is sweet with a bitter bite on the side and finishes dry. Lively soft carbonation and medium palate. Very nice and well balanced.

BOTTLE 33 CL. Look: clear amber, small off-white frothy head. Aroma: very faint, a bit spicy, stale wine? grainy, some caramel, some fruity malts. Taste: malty, but fairly dry, spicy alcohol, light bitterness. Mediocre.
