Bottle 33cl at home
Poured into a Palm glass.

A: Large top which lasts for a normal time. The color is yellow with a brown tint, I noticed the huge amount of bubbles..
S: Smells of apple, pear and a bit dry..
T: Combination of apple and pear, the pear overwhelms the apple. Ends a bit dry with some sweetness.
M: Smooth, mix of the sweetness and smoothness + bubbles is good in balance
O: Good beer, the smell and taste got apple and pear and nothing else, so you taste the fruits..
Its a nice combination of fruits and dryness

I stopped into Cafe 't Pothuiske in Maastricht on 04Oct12 after touring some WWII battlefields near Nijmegen. After a quick Delerium Tremens, I settled in with a 0.33l bottle of Tongerlo (€4.10) for round two.

My very top-shelf bartender poured most of the bottle into a small chalice, with the remaining yeasties drawn into a little shot glass. Nice touch, Bro! I drained the yeasties first, getting my vitamin B fix with the spicy dregs! The main portion was a clear, light to medium golden hue. It had steady, slow carbo, and a long-lasting, creamy, white head. Lacing was A-1. Nose was a combo of bready/crackery malt and tropical fruits. The feel was pretty decent, with some light carbo roughness and a medium body.

Tasted of light crackery malts with mild sweetness. Pear, green apple, honeydew, and honey itself hit the palate. Had minimal bitterness, witha smidge of spicyness at the finish. Quite nice! Had a couple more on subsequent visits, and brought a bottle home, too. Zum Wohl!!

Abbaye beer, 33 cl bottle.
Flavoured with Saaz hops.

Very curious.
Looks golden, with a huge head, good carbonation.

Smell very fresh. Malts, yeast, and some grassy and herbal notes.
Taste is similar. Bittersweet, with bitterness as dominant character.
Aftertaste is pretty long bitterness too. Alcohol is present, but most of is it well covered by the flavour.
Overall, i'm not disappointed. The Saaz seems to have enough power to flavour a tripel of 9%.
