Catholic monasteries were historically major centers of brewing and learning, and their educational model eveolved into the modern university. Two Roads brewers and some beer-loving professors in Sacred Heart University’s biology department collaborated to brew this beer in celebration of that history. It is fermented with a yeast strain from a centuries-old monastic brewery currently operating in Belgium. This Abbey Single is brewed to be distinctive in flavor, yet approachable and refreshing.

Bottle from Dick’s World of Wines. Aroma is Pils and honey malt, medium apple and pear esters, black pepper and ginger with light spicy hops and earthy yeast notes. Pours mostly clear gold with a medium, creamy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Flavor is sweet malt forward, black pepper and ginger, coriander, light spicy hops and bitterness with pear esters and a dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.

Strykzone (5038) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Bomber. This is hazed and golden with a white head that leaves nice lacing. I smell pale malts and a little yeast. An odd hop bitter flavor to begin. Then a little yeast follows and that first flavor subsides some. After that black pepper is noted. I keep tasting just a bit of buttered corn. More sugar than anything Belgium. This is uninspired even for a Blonde.

Pours gold into a tulip. Bright white head with medium retention recedes leaving scant sheets. Sourdough and citrus aromas. Medium bodied with sourdough and marshmallow upfront turning to slight band-aid in the dry bread finish. Taste becomes unpleasant as it warms.

Authentic Abbey blond (although low in ABV for the style). Yeasty with light citrus, some banana, apricot and apple. Refreshing.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours cloudy golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, pale malts, floral hops, and light spices/fruits. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not a bad beer but not the best of its style.
