COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A copper coloured beer with the aroma of honey. It has a full and smooth flavour and a soft, flowing 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.

Clear golden colour with large white foam. Aromas sweet of malt, banana peel, dry yeast, bread and in a way reminds of a wheat beer. Palate, medium body with slick texture and well carbonated to leaving very very light boozy finish. Taste, sweet and malty with notes of sweet bread and buns as well as carrying notes, of wheat and yeast with light boozy touch at the end. Overall, nice brew, not too outstanding but enjoyable.

33 cl. bottle @ Home Aroma: not very intense aromas of toasted malts, biscuits, grains, spices, caramel, burnt caramel. Subtle unfermented grains and cardboard nuances. Appearance: golden color with slightly off-white head. Medium to high head thickness. Almost perfectly clear (low to medium hazyness when the yeast from the bottom of the bottle is added to the beer). Medium-high retention. Very creamy head. Medium Brussels' lacing. Taste: low to medium sweetness, low to medium bitterness, no sourness. Not very intense flavors of malts, toasted malts, biscuits, grains, unfermented grains, spices, caramel, burnt caramel, burnt sugar. Some subtle flavor of grapes/wine. Some acidic/citric overtones appeared toward the finish. Balance is more sweet at first and more toward the bitter side at the end. Palate: low to medium body, watery to oily-silky texture, medium to high carbonation, not very long medium dry finish of malts, toasted malts, biscuits, grains, spices, grapes. Alcohol and carbonation are quite noticeable in the mouth and throat. Overall: aromas and flavors quite subtle and not unpleasant, but alcohol and carbonation is too noticeable. Not my type of beer, but not bad. A bit one-dimensional, but not bad.

Schnabelhund (108) - TAIWAN - SEP 19, 2017
Tongerlo Blond pours a hazy amber to copper color with a frothy off-white head that leaves nice lacing behind. The nose carries notes of bright fruits such as pineapple, green apple, and citrus as well as malty notes of honey and molasses. The simple cereal attack is followed by a mid-palate of the fruit notes from the nose and then by an acidic zesty finish with a little tang and warmth from the alcohol. The sharp carbonation gives this brew a nice little zing. Not bad, if a little simple.

Ingeschonken uit een 1 liter fles. Schuimkraag is beperkt. De smaak is iets te fruitig.

Pours clear orange with medium white head. Taste is well balanced medium bitterness and honey sweetness. Mostly bitter in the finish. Tasty

Bottle, La Cuisine du Marché in Figeac. Rather random appearance of this solitary beer on their apero menu. Deep gold almost amber colour, white foam. All in it's a fairly standard blonde, nice enough sweetish cereal malts, some dryness to finish, hints of spice. Gentle yeastiness. A little safe.

Cerveza belga de color dorado, cristalino en un principio, que pasa a ser opaco y algo más oscura cuando se echa toda la levadura de la segunda fermentación en botella. Bastantes burbujas y una espuma poco abundante blanca y jabonosa de buena retención. El aroma es potente para su estilo, algo frutal (plátano, uva) y con presencia de la levadura, dando un toque especiado. En boca se siente el picor de la carbonatacón, entra dulce, con presencia de la malta. Deja un sabor como a vainilla y frutal, típico de las ales belgas con levadura en botella. Buena cerveza para su precio, a la altura de otras belgas de supermercado.

Plátano, cilantro, manzana verde, ligera albahaca. Trago fácil y fresco con final seco de levadura.
