Brouwerij der St. Benedictusabdij de Achelse Hamont Achsel, Belgium A pale, strong, fruity, hoppy Trappist ale from one of Belgium’s six official abbey breweries. Achel 8° is hard to find even in Belgium; in the U.S. it’s up there with the rarest of beers. This blond, flavorful beer is a surprisingly refreshing brew at 8% alcohol by volume. It is lightly filtered, but still wholesomely hazy with yeast remaining and refermenting in the bottle. ABV: 8% This huge, copper-colored, bottle-conditioned ale is the flagship from the tiny brewery at the St. Benedictus Abbey at Achel, in the Northeast of Belgium. You will find this a very satisfying beer, with just a little malt sweetness, dried fruit flavors, warm sherry notes, and a brisk balancing backdrop of fresh hop bitterness.
