I really liked this one. Very fruity aroma with spices. Flavor was very sweet with floral and toffee notes. Very fruity again. Alcohol was blended quite well for being a lighter bodied brew. Would buy again. ebrowner88 (123) - Rice, Minnesota, USA - APR 8, 2008
Deep hazy copper color. Creamy head with thick lace. Taste is of apple/cherry juice and a tart finish. It does have a brandy like finish. BeerBelcher (972) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2008
I had a Grimbergen Blonde last week back home in WI, and enjoyed it for a number of reasons, including the fact that it was on-special for $3! The double was not so cheap, but was pleasantly surprising.
The beer was served far too cold and in a strange glass choice (a pint glass, which may have come from a fridge) when I tried it at The Bulldog in New Orleans. Still, you could tell it had a bright copper color and abundant head. Due to its 33 degree serving temperature (which while sub-optimal for reviewing, was kind of nice given how hot and humid it was outside), I got very little aroma off of this beer. Flavor was quite nice though; with a substantial malty backbone (substantial without being cereal-y) complemented by a lot of fruit notes that were cherry and raisin-like. Mouthfeel was unremarkable, but what I’d expect from the style.
Pretty good. I’d recommend.
I had this on-draft at The Bulldog in New Orleans. MedicMike (1) - Oakville, Connecticut, USA - APR 3, 2008 does not count

Pretty desent sweet abby dubbel! Not to much of a smell but the taste is pretty good with hints of chocolate and fruit. Good belgian! LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAR 26, 2008
Bottle - Pours a reddish brown with a big tan head that quickly departs. Sour cherry/cough syrup aroma that is not very appealing. Sugary, cherry, toffee flavor. Had better. ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 26, 2008

On tap in Barcelona @ cafe Kasparo. Cola colored reddish dark pour with pretty good head and lacing. Sweet fruits on the nose, candi sugar, some ester profile. Flavor is fruity sweetness with a touch of roastyness. Light to medium body with clean finish. A nice surprise amongst the predominant lagers. Maverick34 (3212) - New York, USA - MAR 24, 2008
Bottled. Actulaly not as bad for a semi-mass market belgian. Pours dark and with some sugary molasses tones, moderate head. drinkable.
