#27 New Belgium Abbey

Type: Dubbel
Container: Bottle
ABV: 7%
Sticker Price: $8.99/6-pack of bottles

We are big Belgian fans in this house. This one delivers everything we like and expect from this style without some of the cloying sweet flavors that hang a round too long. The Abbey is very interesting and yet refreshing at the same time.

  • Rating (5=best): 4.5
  • Nose: Rye grains, medicinal, yeast. Definitely Belgian.
  • Flavor: Sweet roasty malt, toffee, overripe banana, raisins, cinnamon, cloves, bubblegum.
  • Finish: Flavors darken, more roasted grain with a slightest bitterness on very end.
  • Notes: While the sweetness in the flavor might get cloying, it’s clean finish with a hint of bitterness wipes that away and keeps me coming back for more.
  • Shilpi: “It dark and rich but not heavy, which is a nice surprise.”
