COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A pale, strong, fruity, hoppy Trappist ale from one of Belgium’s six official abbey breweries. Achel 8° is hard to find even in Belgium; in the U.S. it’s up there with the rarest of beers. This blond, flavorful beer is a surprisingly refreshing brew at 8% alcohol by volume. It is lightly filtered, but still wholesomely hazy with yeast remaining and refermenting in the bottle.

Cloudy orange, with a huge white head. Aroma is grape and a hint of dishwater, but in a good way. Has a dry is flavor, with notes of white wine and figs and grapes. Pretty for easy to drink for an 8% brew.

hazed orange yellow body with a lot of floaties and a substantial white pocked head. yeasty warm plowe filed aroma with a light lemon citrus and anasthesia. flavor reminds me of the polish the dentist uses when i get my teeth ckleaned. a bit minty with some resin. somewhat sticky a bit rubbery. biting bitterness that is nice. plum and mint in the finish. a nice sweetness emerges as this warms. a bit soapy, but not bad.

Pours out a golden color with a nice white head, and a lot of yeast sediment left in the bottle. Aroma is fruity. The flavor is of fruits most noticible bannana and apple. Finish is somewhat citrusy, a good brew, but not one of the best trappists.

Nekronos (4175) - Xalapa, MEXICO - DEC 22, 2005
UPDATED: APR 30, 2006 Very good, but a little flavorless compared with other, very sweet in some times. The colour is cloudy.

Thanks to DenverLogan for sharing this: Pours a golden color, nice fluffy white head. Aroma is lots of lemon, crips grassy notes to it. Flavor is butterscotch, banana, cloves, a few others spices, tasty stuff.

Poured light golden with a thick white head. Unyielding retention. Smell had apple, corriander, lemon, banana, cloves and white wine. Taste had candy apple, caramel, cloves, banana and white wine. Kind of like a strong wheat beer with more alcohol and caramel added to it. Apple cider comes into it as well. I would call this a Tripel personally. It has the strength and complexities.
