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.

jaghana (5702) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - OCT 13, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2014 Bottle 33lc, a cloudy copper orange beer with good head. Nose is on orange, aroma is a bit spicy, medium sweet, light diacetyl, peppery hops, citrus finish. A basic triple like beer with lemon touch. ------- Re rated, similar hop profile as the Orval, good for a common belgian blond.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle in Belgium. Amber blonde with a huge white head. Aroma of malt, spicy esters and sugar. Flavor is sugary malt, light spice and faint bitterness. Medium to light body. Decent beer but kind of bland.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 6, 2014
Sugary yeast aroma profile, notes of citric and sweet fruits. Hazy orange, white cap of head. Spicy and metallic sweetness, almost tart or salty. Seafoam body, a touch of hop kick in an otherwise crushable beer. Decent for this style, however, not worth the quad ale pricing. Best by 6/3/15 and imported by MHW, Manhasset NY.

StueyD (1579) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2014
A mid orange coloured beer with a frothy white head. A light aroma of malt, with spice, clove in particular and a hint of tropical fruit. Dry mouthfeel. A tart fruit flavour to start, pithy citrus fruit, then a slightly sweeter banana-led tropical fruit flavour. The taste is rounded off with a clove candy taste, which lasts into the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33cl bottle with lees. This is a typical belgian blonde, nice floral notes and spice, tastes a bit stale even though ti isnt.

seynie (384) - Tienen, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2015
Clear dark gold with a bubbly head that doesnt last very long. Malty nose and taste, grass, walnut bitterness. Medium finish with the same and some mineral water. Nothing special

Bawelt (687) - Lyon, FRANCE - SEP 20, 2015
Je lai got deux fois : une premire bouteille neuve et une deuxime qui a t vieillie en cave une bonne dizaine dannes ! Les notes ci-dessus concernent la deuxime. En temps normal, cest une blonde correcte mais sans grand intrt... Une fois vieillie, sa robe part sur une couleur ambre/dore. Au nez, de belles notes boises et vanilles sexpriment. La bouche a un corps assez faible. De plus la longueur est toute relative et loxydation abme vite la bire : elle calme les armes jusqu les rendre faible. En dehors de ce bmol, elle devient assez intressante dans un bel quilibre : vanille, bois fum, un peu dalcool en fond.
