COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Fruity, Rich, Monastic Style Beer. Amber/Topaz colored with a generous long lasting fine bubble head. Truly a Meal.

Elwood (3009) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Serving: 750 ml bottle from Bruisin Ales
It pours a hazy, deep brown color with a creamy, tan head. Decent head retention and good lacing. The nose is big and boozy with notes of ripe fruit, golden raisins, spice, and yeast. The flavor isn’t as bold as the nose. Notes of yeast, boozy fruit, earth and a touch of soap. Medium to rich body with medium to high, slightly aggressive carbonation and a short to medium, malty finish. A pretty decent but not great abbey ale. I would like to try this one again at the brewery.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Tap at Wedge- Nice overall- seemed restrained- I thought it was going to be too fruity or too phenolic, not so. Pours a nice light amber with a thin head. Aroma is nice- biscuit and toasty malts, light honey- very light restrained fruitiness- pear and light raisin, yeasty and doughy but nice. Flavor is yeasty, restrained phenolics- light leather hints, toast, biscuity, light caramel very light fruits, and relatively clean- easy to drink too.

From the tap at the Wedge brew pub. Not as aromatic or full tasting as some dubbels I’ve had, and not quite as spot on for style as the Wedge’s fantastic Golem (tripel), but this nevertheless is quite enjoyable.

zizzybalubba (1380) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - SEP 20, 2009
Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales (and a 1 quart .8 oz. bottle at that, very cool). Brownish-orange pour with very little head. Not much in the way of aroma. Thin bodied with some detection of dark fruits and toffee in the flavor. Easily noticeable as an dubbel but unfortunately just a bit too thin. Drinkable and decent enough but I had hoped for more.

Dark brown amber pour tan head sweet and fruity with a slight hop at the end a very fruity and delicious brew not offensive but nothing special

chandler0201 (640) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 22, 2009
Red pour with tan head. Sweet and roasts in the aroma with fruit. Hint of toffee in the flavor and kind of creamy. Interesting version of this style.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - APR 7, 2009
Pours a dark ruby-reddish brown with a tan head. Smells fruity, tastes sweet and roasty. Has a creamy and smooth toffee like finish.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 29, 2009
Bottle from Butters. Pours a watered down coke color body with a nice lasting off-white head. Smells of ripe fruit, some banana and farmhouse notes. Tastes the same with an unappetizing cardboard presence.

Draft at the brewery. Nothing special here. My least favorite of wedge’s offerings.
