Brewed by Koningshoeven, but I'm not sure it's an official trappist beer. However, this is a good sessionbeer: it's very easy drinking, with a pleasant taste.
33 cl bottle.

Amber coloured, clear. with a thin head, but nice carbonation.

Smell and taste are good. Clean with grassy hops, some caramel, a little dark fruit.
Finish is more dry than expected, but still it is very crisp drinking.

Overall, this is a very nice drink: it's easy going down, it's refreshing and has a well balanced flavour of bitter and sweet.

Drank this beer on tap in a Hotel in Maastricht. A nice ambercoloured beer with a kind of broken fairly white head after a while. This one lookes like and tastes a bit like Palm beer. Palm beer is much imitated by a lot of Dutch brewers. This one can be seen as good imitation. The taste is good but not spectacular. Drank this one in the original glass.

From my notes 6/6/2007 pours one-finger white head that fades quickly to a ring leaving some lace. Crystal clear amber color. Malty nose. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Flavor is balanced with some bitterness at finish. On-tap 0.4L glass for €6.50 ($8.91) from Cafe Zwart Amsterdam, NL.

In the late 90's imported Palm was coming up fast and many Dutch breweries attempted to stop or at least benefit from this rise by developing their own Palm-like beer. So did Bavaria and they created this Moreeke. They didn't exceed in stopping Palm however. But the rise of Speciale Palm made Palm greedy. They started to temper with the recipe to make a more accessible to a wider public. Doing so increased their sales but downgraded the beer in my opinion. The result: Moreeke grew from clone to be the better of the two. Especially now production moved to de Koningshoeven.

The beer itself is a nice very drinkable Belgian ale. With hints of caramel and herbs. Looking great on tap and (when fresh) good from the bottle. Not too sweet, not so cloying like others in this category.

This beer used to be brewed by Bavaria, but when Bavaria bought de Koningshoeven, they decided to brew the beer there. This immediatelly raises the image of the beer, but the beer hasn't actually changed.

Appearance is good, a clear, brown, amber beer with a nice frrothy head that collapses after several minutes.

Smell of Christmas pudding with some spicy notes and caramel with some maltiness.

Taste is fruity like strawberries, spicy like clove or cinnamon and malty. The special malts give the beer a slightly roasted taste. Bitterness is only supplementing and plays almost no part. The yeast profile is pretty clean and leaves very little other tastes. The mouthfeel is very smooth and together with the taste reminds me of a vanilla milkshake with the additional stickiness.
