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.

Aroma is of roasty, nuts. Taste heavy cloying sweetness, medium bitterness, fizzy. Maybe some black bread taste, with some bitterness in the aftertaste.

freretoc (982) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 21, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 33cl à la sucrière, couleur blonde, belle mousse et effervescence moyenne. Une bière avec une attaque forte sur la banane et la levure très sèche en fin de bouche. Amertume légère.

White with pleasant malty flavors. Gold colored body. First sip is nice with light hops but the aftertaste is not balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ysok02 (180) - MOns, BELGIUM - MAR 11, 2015
Robe blonde relfets ambrés. Nez sur le fruit, le houblon et la levure, assez banal. Bouche ronde et souple, équilibrée mais sans grande originalité, ni longueur. La meilleure blonde du monde ???? pas selon mon goût....

Blond beer with big white top, aroma of some fruits, elected as best beer on the world beer awards 2014 but for me it is not that special.

Aangezien dit bier op de World Beer Awards van 2014 werd uitgeroepen tot beste bier van de wereld wilde ik deze toch even proeven. Ben nochtans geen fan van Tongerlo maar zal eerlijk oordeel proberen vellen. Tongerlo blond is beetje misleidend, de kleur van dit bier is eerder amberkleurig. Aroma van appelsien, abrikoos, geel fruit. Redelijk volle schuimkraag en volle romige smaak. Niet al te uitgesproken smaak, beetje citrus, tarwe, honing. Een middenmotor....

Pours good clear amber with decent fluffy head. Very light aroma, slightly malty. Medium high carbonation, medium light mouthfeel. Light malty honey taste, slightly astringent.

DwarfeD (1352) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - FEB 27, 2015
33cl bottle at home. Clear golden with a medium white soapy head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Pretty sweet with some bitter tones. Malts, tropical fruits, yeast and herbs. The aroma was somewhat soapy, which made it quite aweful. Not my brew.

Fles. Honing kleur, licht troebel, kleine schuimkraag. Neus van gedroogd (citrus) fruit, abrikoos, hint van peper/kruidnagel, gist. Licht zoete, licht kruidige smaak. Lijkt in de verte op Leffe blond, maar zuurder. Licht zure evolutie. Niks mis mee.
