COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s an unassuming road leading to the priory. Here, off the corner of two intersecting roads, dedicated monks have been making beer for over 150 years. It’s always been a simple life – the kind that requires they brew only enough to sustain the activities of their monastery In the silence of passing seasons, they pray, they brew and retire in a solitary existence behind the sheltering walls. They live a most interesting life. Most likely one we wouldn’t sustain. Nearby, each summer, the trellised fields spring to life as rows of resinous green cones are trained toward the heavens. Rumor is some monks love these hops and being surrounded by budding yellow aromas and the leafy pungent fields inspires them. Since we weren’t sensible enough to locate our brewery near hop fields, we can only offer this blond ale in celebration of our Abbey brethren and their steadfast Devotion.

Decent bready malts, a rather full mouthfeel - really hits the the entire mouth with flavor. A big rush of hops - flavor and bittering. The yeast flavors provide more balance against the hop than the malts, but I found the beer to have enough malt to hold up. Long fresh hop finish. Fresh cut grass, a bit of citrus. The hops tasted freshly harvested, maybe the label is effecting me....but that fresh hop flavor really came through. As with so many of Tomme’s beers - complex, flavorful and perfect beer for rish cheeses and crusty bread.

Perfect Belgian!! Nice clove notes, great balance with head and carbonation, slight fruity esters, great beer!
