About Abbaye de Floreffe by Licorne Brewing Co.

Brewed to the traditional recipe of the Floreffe monks, this pure malt-and-hops beer, the result of a long period maturing in a cold cellar, captivates with its deep gold colour with ochre reflections. Remarkably well balanced, with a pleasant hint of bitterness…

It lavishly fills up the palate, finishing with a persistent mellowness. Pure poetry!

A smooth foam and a golden colour with ochre reflections.

mell :

A beautifully complex mix of aromas combining malty, caramelised and fruity aromas such as banana and even pineapple.<

Taste :

The attack is fresh, but powerful. The use of candy sugar gives it a persistent, mellow finish in the mouth. A liquoricey end note and a slight after-bitterness make this a balanced beer that can be enjoyed by all.

Overall impression :

A highly nuanced beer with a genuine personality.


The Licorne brewery is situated in Saverne, Alsace, a region known for its long-standing connections with beer and brewing. Proud of its home town, the brewery has chosen a unicorn ("licorne") as the emblem to represent the company. Synonymous with purity, strength and independence, the unicorn became the emblem of the town of Saverne in the 16th century. Legend has it that the unicorn dipped its horn in Saverne water and that since then it has been clear and pure, ideal for making beer.
