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.

MelvinKalksma (1005) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2016

Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, dark fruit, berries and bread.

Turbid/opaque ruby/brown beer with a slight/medium beige head.

Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, dark fruit and berries; ends slightly dry with bread.

This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. The aroma could be stronger, the appearance is great and the palate is decent. A very fruity Dubbel that does nothing bad, nor very well.

kaserov (220) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 3, 2016
Color marrón oscuro casi negro, turbio, con capa de espuma marrón claro de dos dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación a tope (pero se pierde a los 15 minutos de haber vertido la cerveza, con lo cual queda una textura acuosa que le pega todavía menos que la carbonatación excesiva que tiene en un principio). Aroma a malta y algo de levadura, mínimo. Sabor a malta típico de Dubbel pero con un final metálico muy remarcado que se lleva todo por delante. Floja.

Bottle at home. Aroma is sweet malt, caramel, spices, candy sugar, raisins, nutmeg. Flavour is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is almost medium but feels a bit thin for the style. I am not a fan, it’s so dull and mediocre.

Found this beer to be very average. Pours an ugly brown colour with a large tan head. The taste is very flat with a bit of caramel and earthiness to it. I wouldn’t buy this again but If someone offered this to me I would’t refuse to drink it either.

corkyrory66 (1429) - BELGIUM - JUL 20, 2016
Double d’abbaye reconnue, titrant à 6,5 % abv. Mon exemplaire avait exactement un an de plus que sa date limite. Couleur brun roux superbe, à la clarté nette. Bulles moyennes par milliers, partout, très vives (et par ailleurs, une carbonation importante au décapsulage). Mousse beige crémeuse, nappage à 2 mm. Arômes de fruits mûrs, porto, fût de vin, raisins secs, vin rouge. Des arômes qui la rapprochent d’ailleurs davantage d’une quad que d’une double, mais ceci est dû fort probablement à l’âge. 1ère bouche très souple, soyeuse, à la belle entame vineuse et boisée. Arrière-bouche longue et assez maltée. 2ème aux très belles nuances vineuses et fruits mûrs, mais un peu "mince"en texture. Arrière-bouche qui revient sur un malt grillé. 3ème à la très belle suite, très harmonieuse. Arrière-bouche avec du fût vraiment intéressant. Longueur qui roule tranquille sur des saveurs très agréables, sauf ce petit manque de consistance. Jambes fines, longues. Levure un peu boisée, ligne correcte. Alcool en nette progression sur la longueur, vu l’âge de mon exemplaire. Finale fine. CONCLUSION : ma cote est fortement tributaire de l’âge de mon exemplaire, mais c’est la preuve que cette bière avait un certain potentiel de vieillissement. Seuls la texture et le maltage sont un peu légers sur la longueur, et déjà à la 2ème bouche.

invinoveritas (116) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2016
Pours deep brown with a huge head. Musty, slightly metallic banana nose and soured, creamy bananas to taste. Fairly full bodied but lightened by the carbonation. Flavourful and sprightly.
