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.

KeefOz (1035) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAR 27, 2015
Tasted 18/3/15. Draught at Brasserie Central, Ieper, Belgium. Poured a dark brown, nearly black, colour with a slight mahogany edge tint. Head of one-finger light tan dense foam that retained OK and laced OK. Carbonation low and fine. Aroma subtly of sweet caramel with hints of dark chocolate. Taste subtly of sweet caramel and malt. Light body; feels thin for a dark beer. Smooth, soft, easy to drink and slightly sweet on the finish.

Pours a murky mid brown with a cream head. Smells of sweet caramel and burnt sugar. Taste is a bit flat but with a sweet yeasty finish.

webroel (4) - DENMARK - JAN 11, 2015 does not count
Dark brown with a nice long lasting foam. At first, when I tried to smell it, I was a bit disappointed, nothing hit my nose. The beer took its revenge when I tasted it. Smooth and sweet, with a slightly roasted taste. It you are not completely into stout, but still like a bit of roast, this could be the beer for you.
