COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Winner of four World Beer Cup medals and eight medals at the Great American Beer Fest, Abbey Belgian Ale is the Mark Spitz of New Belgium’s lineup - but it didn’t start out that way. When Jeff and Kim first sampled the beer at the Lyons Folks Fest, reviews were mixed at best. One of founder Jeff’s first two Belgian style homebrews (along with Fat Tire), Abbey is a Belgian dubbel (or double) brewed with six different malts and an authentic Belgian yeast strain. Abbey is bottle-conditioned, weighs in at 7.0% alcohol by volume, and pairs well with chocolate (or boldly served by itself) for dessert.

BrewSpot (46) - Zhengzhou, CHINA - DEC 31, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2018 Quite a great abbey beer, resembles a lot of the Belgian dubbel bier taste. Dubbel has always been a favorite for me since its slightly sweet body, with enough maltiness and smooth mouth feel. This abbey is slightly lighter than the authentic Trappist Dubbels I had before, but the malt scent and caramel sweetness are definitely there. Great golden body with a rocky head, I would say, its quite a great beer.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2018 Bottle, from City Hops. Pours clear reddish brown with small frothy light beige head, toffee, biscuit, caramel malt aroma, high carbonation, medium bitter caramel malt taste with toffee flavor, faint alcohol undertones, smooth body, long caramel finish. Nicely balanced and tasty.

From the 12 oz. bottle. Best By 27 Jan 2019. Dark amber brown pour with a foamy, mocha head that fades slow. Enticing aroma of dark roasted Belgian malts, molasses, dark fruit, and earthy hop profile. The mouthfeel is medium and smooth. The taste is sweet with a peppery bite behind it.Lingering spicy finish. This is a nice US take on the style.

The pour ia a gourgous deep reddish color. Nice tan foamy head. A nice toasty aroma. The taste has a strong roasted flavor. This is a very nice Dubbel. Well done.

Bottle pout into shaker pint glass. Appearance is dark brown-red, tons of sparkle, 1.5-finger width foamy head with decent retention and no lacing. Aroma is Belgian yeast, caramel. Taste is as aroma, hint of mild fruit, spice. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with smooth, thin texture, soft-to-average carbonation with dry mix of yeast and mild sweet finish. Overall, checks all the right boxes. Good.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2018 Found on tap at brewery in Asheville. Love the off brown blackish color. Really well put together beer with a variety of flavors that all have their individual moments. Great mid-fall to winter beer.

gripweed57 (3777) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 28, 2018
12 ounce bottle. Deep garnet color. Small foamy beige head. Rich, earthy toasted malt nose hints at toffee and dark dried fruits. Bittersweet toasted malt flavor. More dark dried fruits and toffee. Some yeasty notes as well. Warming alcohol along with a dry, black pepper nuance in finish. A delicious example of a Belgian style Dubbel.

Ljus (644) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 15, 2018
Apparence : Brune, reflets rouges, carbonatation bien active alimentant un col beige ayant une bonne rétention et laissant une légère dentelle.
Nez : Pain toasté, dattes, notes caramélisées.
Goût : Rôti, dattes, sucre brun, aspect sucré plus important que l'amertume, notes épicées.
Sensation : Corps moyen, longueur moyenne, effervescence appropriée.
Bref : Tout est bien dosé, le malt ressort plus que la levure, sans que celle-ci ne soit absente, aspects que j'apprécie dans une Dubbel. Il manque peut-être par contre de présence aromatique en bouche; on a parfois l'impression que la finale et la rétro-olfaction sont les moments où la bière est le plus mise en valeur.
