One of my favourite beers (and one I'm guaranteed to order when in Bruges) is the utterly fantastic  Abbaye des Rocs Brune
So here's a beer from the Montignies-sur-Rocs brewery that I've never sampled before, an amber beer by the name of Montagnarde.

A hazy amber coloured beer that is topped with a huge white bubbly, creamy head that lasts and lasts - look closely and you'll notice that typical Abbaye des Rocs snowglobe effect, the glass is crammed with yeast particles - there's nothing wrong though, empty the bottle and watch the glass come alive.

Incredibly fruity aroma, it's simply packed with peaches and apricots combined with a delicious honey, caramel sweetness.
There's also a lovely yeasty, bready note on the finish......fantastic.

Taste is rich with toffee sweetness and caramel malts, complimented with a buttery, honey smoothness and a definite orange marmalade kick.
There's also the lightest touch of spiced biscuits and a gentle hoppy bite on the finish.

Another great beer from a great brewery.
