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.

Golden yellow with good head and sticky lace. Lemon and yeast aroma with some sweet fruit. Sweet fruity, yeasty flavor. Mild hops add some bitterness and slight alcohol adds warmth. Carbonation is above average. Very nice and different from other Trappists I have enjoyed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Volim te Achele zbog njihove nepretenzioznosti i mekanog okusa i zbog blage gaziranost. Lagani citrusni i voćni miris. Okus je isto blago voćkast i lagano gorkast. Meni jedna od najdražih 'svakodnevnih' Belgijskih piva zbog svoje pitkosti !

Bottle from Damian. Pours clear orange with thick white head. Aroma is sweet, with yeast, malt, slightly spicy. Rich strong taste, oranges, coriander, hoppy, lively carbonation, long fruity and spicy finish. It's very good.

0,33 l bottle. Pours golden yellow with a finger of quickly dissipating white head until only a veil remains. Aroma of bread, yeast, light honey, some citrus and herbal hop aroma. Taste is medium sweet, light to medium bitter. Body is full, texture creamy and carbonation lively. Finish is long, initial sweetness is slowly overrun by earthy, herbal, spicy bitterness.

Zilverenmaan (315) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 29, 2017
Poors deep ocre-copper with dense white head. Aroma rather faint, yeasty. Taste very warm malty well balanced with fine, grassy bitterness. Lively like a saison. Fruity: combination of some dark fruits and more banana, somewhat like a Hefeweizen. Aftertaste very yeasty, light astringent bitterness. MF very soft, alcohol well hidden. Unspectacular yet remarkably memorable, very tasty. Another jewel in the crown of trappist ales ( it has been a long week... ).

Fles thuis geprobeerd met LiekevdV. Het heeft een helder oranjeachtige kleur met medium schuimkraag. De geur is moutig en karamelachtig. De smaak is wat zoet, Karamel en licht fruitig.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2017 Trappiste très accessible, rafraîchissante, tout en finesse, aux somptueuses saveurs d'agrumes, notamment de pamplemousse. Un classique inoubliable à mon goût.
