COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A brown beer with a sweet aroma that has a full flavour and a lightly roasted 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.

On draught everywhere in Belgium it seemed. Starting to compete with Jupiler for sign dominance. Rich creamy head, reddish brown color, fairly sweet. Light roasted malty flaovrs. Woody duration. Not too bad.

PotjeBier (2526) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2016
Small sample from tap. Clear deep brown color. Off white, creamy and rocky head, good lacing. Aroma’s: caramle, dark sugar, red fruit. Retronasal the red fruit is upfront, with brown sugar more subdued. Flavor is moderate sweet, caramel. Medium bodied. Finishes light herbal, light bitter. Rather boring, but decent.

davidezdonz (251) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - MAY 4, 2016
A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 7th November 2016 and poured into a Chimay goblet glass. It poured a reddish brown colour with a one finger beige head that had good retention and settled down to a creamy puffy layer with good lacing. Aromas of light plum, banana and some metal mineral-ness. Taste started pretty decent with plum, brown sugar, raisin, caramel and banana. But for some reason, the finish is a little watery. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Overall, looks great, but the minerally aroma and the watery finish didn’t help the beer.

Icedwarf (1158) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2016
Roodbruin bier met stevig schuim. Smaak is bitter hoppig en licht zoet met iets van karamel en toffee. Komt wat waterig over helaas.
