Abbaye de St. Martin Blond is a golden beer with a strong foam. Once openend then the bubbles gently rise to the top and a good head remains. A round, balanced and full flavour taste. It is floral, elegant and direct. The aftertaste has a noble bitterness.
Alcohol content of 7%.
Serving temperature: 8-10°C
In XIth century Tournay, when the city only had barely 10.000 inhabitants, a cannon called Odon d'Orléans was unable to find a place for silent prayer and meditation. So he founded a new place to live and pray: St Martin's Abbey.
In 1096, Bishop Radbot granted the monks of St Martin's the right to brew, a valuable privilege granted by King Childeric. And that is all to the good as in a time when plague and cholera reigned, people already knew that it was wiser to drink beer than water. The recipes of St Martin's beers have remained a secret.
These are exceptional beers, with a fine and subtle flavour, comprising several types of barley and hops and enriched with rare spices. A beer of yestery ear and of today, to be shared...
