The Saint Benedictus Abbey of Achel is the first monastery to take up brewing in Belgium since 1931, and is one of only six Trappist breweries now operating there. This dark amber, flavorful beer is surprisingly refreshing at 8% alcohol by volume. It is lightly filtered, but still wholesomely hazy with yeast remaining in the bottle. The Monastery is designing new labels for this beer, but for the moment is can be differentiated from the lighter Achel 8 only by the bottle cap - the blonde has a white cap and the bruin has a gold cap. Both beers are fantastic, however, so don't worry if you didn't get what you expected.
