rosenbergh (7011) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Draught at the Wedge, Asheville, NC as Belgian Style Abbey Ale. 8%. Pours slightly cloudy copper coloured with a tiny off-white head. Caramel sweetness, yeast, mild bitterness, hops and sugar in the aroma. The flavour is sweet malty with some hoppy bitterness, sugary sweetness and mild yeastiness. Not very Belgian. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

OK, I rarely say anything is too hoppy, but this wasn’t really like an abbey ale. Reddish copper, with a thin ring of foam Smell sweet and amlty, but the flavor is more like, I dunno, a standard brown ale with some Belgian yeast or something. Tasty, but kind of odd...

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.

Butters (3789) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2009
Pours a dark hazy orange with great tan head. Aroma is sweet, and even some bubblegum. Flavor is a little spicy and yeasty. Velvety body. Not bad at all, I was actually rather impressed with this one.

On tap at the brewery. Nice dark fruit aroma with mild Belgian yeast and spices. Great dark fruit based flavor with plum and fig along with caramel and hazelnut. Medium sweetness. Medium-plus body with average carbonation. Pretty nice for what it is.
