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.

Pétillance modérée, goût de malt dominant avec des notes de miel, de céréales et de banane avec une légère amertume en fin de bouche. Une bière correcte qui fait un peu penser à de la Leffe (en mieux).

Recht klassisches Belgian mit ordentlicher Hefe und einer gewissen Fluffigkeit. Dazu ein wenig Karamell, Vanille und ein Schuss an Champagner. Kann man mögen.

The beer has got a cloudy golden-strawy colour with a smooth body and steady head. Aroma of Belgian yeast and flowers. Taste of Belgian yeast, flowers, caramel, vanilla, metall and bread. Nothing special, but drinkable.

Taste is of grainy malts, sweet caramel malts, fruity yeast apples, pears and apricots .... Has some sweet character to it ... Finished dry and malty with some lingering fruit .... Nice flavorful blonde

It has roughly persistent foam, and the promising scent of coriander and malt. Coriander in flavor, light acidity, light touch of wheat malts fresh grain taste and a malt sweetness that has a little bit of honey in the luggage. It is hopped in the light end of the scale, and it should also be, in order not to dominate the overall image which should be malt, cereal and sweetness.

Espuma blanquecina que se va disipando y solo se mantiene como una fina corona, color dorado, rico y dulce aroma en nariz, sabor suave y regusto permanente

A 330ml bottle with a best before end date of 4th June 2016 and poured into a D’Achouffe tulip glass. It poured a slightly hazy copper colour with a huge three finger head. Most of it dissipated within a minute but it left some thick lacing on the glass. Some aroma of slight funk at first followed by some fruity banana and apples, caramel and honey. Bread and cracker malt aromas also show as it warms. Flavour is sweet banana and honey first, but there’s definitely candied sugar, bubblegum and caramel mixed in. Medium bodied, medium to high carbonation, sticky. This was not bad but perhaps slightly too sweet for me. Leffe is also a tad too sweet for me, but I still may prefer Leffe slightly more.
