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.

Drink cold: 8-10°C Eye: Pours an amber to rusty color with medium to heavy carbonation and a not to quickly dissipating white head. Nose: sweet yeast, honeydew and wheat. Fruity as well Mouth: berries. a bit metallic. Palate: light caramel malts. Honey oat. Wheat/rye/barley (almost whole grain) and hazelnuts. Overall: Downside: a bit metallic. Upside: not as much alcohol what leads to enjoying more beers and really getting the taste out of the beer not overshadowed by alcoholic notes or just delirious smells/substances.

Don't know whether bottle had gone off but tasted pretty horrible. Bought from Fusion Supermarket in HK. Golden colour with big white head. Yeasty bread-like aroma, touch of soap. Taste is just dryness. Slightly soapy, metallic tinge. One dimensional and not at all tasty. Like drinking soapy water. Couldn't finish it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
