Achel Extra Bruin (de 3 Wijzen) (750ml Bottle)

Achel Extra Bruin (de 3 Wijzen) 750ml Bottle

Description

Huge, copper-coloured, bottle-conditioned ale, still hot off the presses, Achel Trappist Extra is the latest from the tiny brewery at the St. Benedictus Abbey at Achel, in the Northeast of Belgium. At this year's World Beer Championships in Chicago, the Extra was easily the best of the many Trappist beers tasted, scoring 97 points and an "Exceptional" rating. You will find this a very satisfying beer, with just a little malt sweetness, dried fruit flavours, warm sherry notes, and a brisk balancing backdrop of fresh hop bitterness.

Tasting Notes

Strong, complex, lots of iron taste, plenty of floaters in the bottom... Achel’s best. Knocked me out for hours.

Abt/Quadrupel

Abt, or quadrupel, is the name given to ultra-strong Trappist and abbey ales. The name Abt was pioneered to describe Westvleteren and the beer that would become St. Bernardus. Quadrupel was pioneered by La Trappe. Abts are the darker of the two, with more rich, deep fruity notes. Quads are paler, with corresponding peachy notes. Neither have much in the way of hop, and both are very strong and malty. Though both are bottle-conditioned, abts trend more towards yeastiness. Alcohol is very high (10+% abv) for both.
