COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Abbey Ale honors the ancient tradition of monks who perfected the art of brewing beer to support the monastery and the brothers with their "liquid bread". We offer up our support and thank them with a 25 cent donation to St. Josephs Abbey with every bottle of this heavenly brew. Dark in amber color, the aroma of caramel, fruits and cloves invites you to contemplate the creamy head of this "dubbel" or double ale. Abita Abbey Ale is a malty brew, top-fermented and bottle aged to rapturous perfection.

hotstuff (4902) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Rated on 3-27-2013 (Bottle) When poured, this beige head is medium sized, creamy and mostly diminished. The body is transparent, fair amount of lacing, fizzy, lively and fast rising, and the hue is orange. The Aroma is malt, caramel, sweet, fruity, and clove. The Taste is sweet, malty, caramel, and fruity. The Palate is slightly bubbly and this is a medium bodied beer. In conclusion, this beer is quaffable, the ABV is hidden, but I have drank/rated better beer of this style.

Bottle. Over-ripe orange, cardboard, and toffee malt aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Sweet spicy orange malt flavor. Okay.

PhillyBeer2112 (2765) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2013
The first half of this bottle I didnt like, then I guess it grew on me a little. Hazy brown color, large pitted tan head. Aroma was soft banana and misc fruits. Flavor similar, leading toward a semi-dry cocoa finish that preserved a hint of banana, giving the impression that you might have eaten a chocolate covered banana sometime in the recent past. But then the drying finish got swallowed up by an overly bitter hoppy finish that clashed dramatically. This was the worst part, and the part I adapted to in the 2nd half of the bottle. Soft fluffy palate

Bottle. Nice sweet caramel aroma with dark fruit notes and clove. Pours reddish amber with a decent off white head. Taste is strong caramel to start with a very sweet dark fruit finish with a hint of clove. The flavors meld wonderfully making this an great Dubbel-style beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I bought 2 bottles of this at 4.99 per thinking I could get more beer (Belgian abbey) for the buck. The 1st bottle was the funkiest wasabi spiked garbage Ive had in a while. I was going to trash the brew masters reputation thoroughly. I opened the second bottle today and it was quite different. Still that indescribable wasabi-sour funk but not as prevalent. Appearance and pour are nice but that sour weirdness is a bit disconcerting. Now as it warms a bit the wasabi spike has diminished and its more of a sour apple. Im going to the store now get a couple St Bernardus Abt12s

mephisto (1286) - TAIWAN - MAY 2, 2013
Bottled, obtained in new Orleans; the land of crappy beers. This is by far the best beer I can get in a liquor store. Pours amber hue with beige head, it has aroma of hop and sweet malt. Slightly sweet but not cloying. A life saver in new Orleans.

Bottle. This is a pretty lack luster brew in a fancy bottle. I would give it a miss.
