Sampled on draft this beer poured a red-caramel color with a medium sized foamy orange-tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweet and vegetal with notes of orange and honey. The flavor was sweet, tangy and bready with a vegetal note, golden fruit, a bit of white wine and a hint of medicine. Long finish. Medium body. Ok.

Keg at Appalachian, Collegeville, 29/11/13.
Dark mahogony brown with a good sized tan covering that retains well.
Nose is dark fruits, sugars, toffee, light spice.
Taste comprises dark fruits, straw, brown sugars, light spice, dates.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry closure.
So so, lacks any great character and depth. PapaSkeetSkeet (1010) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 11, 2010
Despite the fact that one of the great attributes of Belgian beers is that they cannot be contained by style guidelines, I discourage anyone from thinking of this as a dubbel. I’ve heard that there’s been some discussion by the BJCP to distinguish between Belgian abbey ales and American abbey ales, which would allow for better classification of this beer. Medium amber with off-white, evanescent head. Smell is spice, yeast, mild light fruitiness (plum). Rather light in flavor and mouthfeel; spice is dominant with slight cherry and plum underneath. Tasty session beer. j12601 (12982) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 28, 2010

Cloudy, dark copper color, very little head. Scent of spices, with slight caramel malts. A bit thin, but flavorful, the spices also dominate the taste. Thin and smooth, adequately carbonated. Easy drinker; doesn’t really stand out among dubbels or ABC’s brews.

Deep amber/copper pour with creamy off white head and lace. Brown sugar and coriander aroma. Brown sugar, sour malt, and Belgian yeast on the flavor. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Nice beer. bobaidan (530) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - JUN 29, 2010
On tap in Harrisburg. Pours much lighter than I would expect from a dubble. Aroma is dark fruit with a hint of yeast. Medium in body with a fair level of carbonation. Flavor is a bit light, but not bad with typical belgian yeast characteristics and a fair amount of sweet malt.
