New Belgium Abbey

IMG_0043

Beer: Abbey

Beer Style: Dubbel

Brewery: New Belgium

Abv: 7.0%

Serving Method: Bottle poured into pint glass

Country of Origin: United States of America

Background: When it comes to Belgian beer or Belgian style beer I am oftentimes not a fan of the Dubbel. I prefer the stronger and more refreshing Trippel. This generally is not respective of the beer’s origin. It doesn’t have to be Trappist to be good. New Belgium and Ommegang make some of the best Belgian style beers although they are not in Belgium.

Taste & Aroma: Raisins, dates, prunes, and a hint of cherry are in the nose of this beer. A bready, tart, raisiny beer is what you are drinking. The finish is sweet and lingering.

Final Analysis: This is another excellent offering from New Belgium. I’d love to try all of their beers on draught now.
