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.

33cl bottle with lees. This is a typical belgian blonde, nice floral notes and spice, tastes a bit stale even though ti isn’t.

Bottle from Mam and Dad’s holiday, Belgium. Hazy golden coloured with a sweet, spicy, zesty citrus fruity flavour, dry malty and vanilla notes followed by a slightly sugary sweet fruity finish.

GoufCustom (1003) - HONG KONG - APR 17, 2015

330ml bottle bought at TASTE in Olympian City, Tai Kok Tsui.

Cloudy hazy golden orange colour with very thin traceof dirt- like yeast sediments; One and a quarter finger head and crumpety white foam which lasts for 4 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with fizzy carbonation; Fragrant aroma of full malt, with vanilla, banana, caramel, light plums, sugar, ester, bread, strong Bel yeast, light lemon and fairly light grass; Mid to light sweet taste of full malt, with metallic, caramel, light dark fruits, light ester, spices, light alcohol, molasses notes, bread, Bel yeast, lemon, light bitter hops and light grass; Full body. Slick and creamy palate; Mouth feel is solid full malt, quite wholesome, very creamy and smooth, but lacking fruity tastes. Fairly moderate sweetness, fair spices and bready. Not bad... Hoppiness is light lemon and light grassy nose taste. Bitterness is fairly moderate hops for an abrupt, low astringent malty finish; Fairly dry after taste. Creamy and light bitter to mouth.

Comments: It has all the right attribute to be a good one - rich malt and body, very good carbo, good looks and fairly good aroma. Yet the taste is really lacking sparks and dimension so in the end it’s just one of the crowd - quite drinkable but taste-wise nothing special.

Dorée foncée / ambrée claire, léger trouble, nez fruité, petite rondeur douce en bouche, léger malt, sans grande longueur. Globalement bonne mais assez standard pour être désignée meilleure bière.

Kolor bursztynowy, klarowny. Piana .... by?a. Momentalnie stopnia?a, kolor by? bia?y z drobnymi p?cherzykami. Zapach bardzo delikatny, mieszaj? si? aromaty chmielowe z przyprawami, s? jeszcze jab?ka i odrobina skórki od chleba. Piwo wed?ug mnie za mocno nasycone. Gaz ca?y czas przeszkadza w smakowaniu. Tongerlo Blond charakteryzuje chmielowa goryczka, i ma?o sympatyczny "destylat". Wszystko jest nie tak. Piwo po prostu niedobre. Jedno z tych piw, które nale?y omija?.
