Abbaye d'AchelAchel Bruin is an authentic Trappist beer brewed by the monks of the monastery of Notre Dame de Saint Benoit at Achel in Belgium. Pouring deep chestnut beneath a fine tan head, this superb beer breathes a thick bouquet of fruit, flowers, spice, caramel, and roasted malt. Achel Bruin offers a palate composed of rich plummy, jammy fruit notes, with raisins, spices, yeast, chocolate, hops and a hint of vanilla, wrapped up in a generous body with light carbonation and a malty, toasty finish.Product #: 46285stars, based on 1 reviewsRegular price: 1.651.65Available from: Saveur BièreCondition: New productsin stock

Abbaye d'AchelBrewed at the Monastery of Notre Dame de Saint Benoît in Belgium, Achel Blond is one of the few trappist beers in the world. In fact, to be granted the label of trappist beer, the beer must be brewed in a monastery under the monitoring of the monastic community from the Cistercian tradition. These are compelling conditions extremely hard to gather and only 9 breweries in the world do respect them and can therefore be named this way. But once you are granted this label, it means that your beer is of high quality and in total respect of the brewing world traditions. Compared to the other trappist beers, the taste of this Achel Blond is relatively simple and has less character, not that it makes it an any less pleasant beer. It pours an amber colour, round and sweet for the nose, where you can easily feel the esters and scents of smooth malt reminiscent of ripe grapes from late harvest. In the mouth, the entrance is pleasant, sharp, round and sweet with a hint of bitterness and acrity reminiscent of pink ripe grapefruit peel. It stays long in the mouth and one can notice a post-bitterness which is yet not too dry. A sweet honey and malty dominance can be perceived upon the whole.

It is therefore a must-have if you want to become an expert and a true beer lover one day.Product #: 14624stars, based on 6 reviewsRegular price: 2.62.6Available from: Saveur BièreCondition: New productsin stock

Abbaye d'AchelAchel is one of the few Trappist beers in the world. As a matter of fact, only 9 beers can bear the title of Trappist products since it is extremely hard to be granted the name. The brewers must indeed meet two criteria: -The beer must be produced under the watch of the monks. - Most of the income must be given to charity. Brewed in the Abbey of Achel, the Achel Extra Brune pours a dark colour with several coloured glints such as brown and red, it is topped by an impressive and creamy beige head. In the nose, one can smell the presence of malt, aromas of spices, caramel and fruits (figs, grapes). You'll also taste notes of malt, vanilla, and roasted flavors. In the mouth, despite its high ABV of 9.5%, this dark beer is relatively sweet because of the complexity of the numerous aromas involved. Many different pieces of fruit are present such as figs, grapes, plum and hints of nuts. Thus, this Trappist beer with its subtle complexity is one of the best dark beers in the world.Product #: 36095stars, based on 3 reviewsRegular price: 7.757.75Available from: Saveur BièreCondition: New productsin stock

In 1850, construction began on the Abbaye d’Achel’s brewery with work finishing in 1852. As with the majority of abbeys, the beer produced was consumed almost entirely by the monks.

During WWII, the German army requisitioned the Abbey’s brewery, stripping it of its tin and copper fittings. It was only in 1998 that the decision was made to refit the brewery, whose production had been undertaken by other breweries.

Today, Achel’s new beers are developed by Brother Thomas, head brewer at the Westmalle abbey, and Brother Antoine, formerly head brewer at the Abbaye de Rochefort.
