Highland Seven Sisters Abbey Style Ale

RATINGS: 67   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.24/5   SEASONAL: Spring   IBU: 20   EST. CALORIES: 195   ABV: 6.5%
This Abbey Style Dubbel Ale earns its appellation by being brewed with double the normal grain bill and the addition of Belgian dark candi sugar. Fermenting with Trappist yeast creates dark fruit esters. Pilsen, Pale, Extra Special and Chocolate malts evoke classic Belgian Ale sweet aromas with a hint of nuttiness. Use of Hallertau Hersbrucker and German Select hops enhance authenticity and provide a restrained bittering of 20 IBUs and a slight spicy aroma.

Growler from Greens Discount Beverage. Pour is a light brown with a bit of yellow and amber and a thin white head. Aroma is sweet and bready, with a little bit of candied fruit and light malts. While the aroma is nice and somewhat complex, there is less to the taste. A bit watery and dull, finishing with a sweet bready finish and a bit of hops and alcohol. An unusually disappointing brew from Highland, although not terrible.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Chimay Goblet. Pours from the bottle a nice copper orange color, light to no white head formation. Aromas of fruit and slight hops. Flavors of sweet malt and caramel, with the malty flavor intensifying upon swallowing. No lacing at all throughout. Overall this was a nice beer that was not only easy to drink, but also had a pleasant flavor. It kind of reminded me of a Hefe in a weird way...

12 oz bottle. Pours a deep red color with a thin off-white head. The aroman is sweet with some fruit and floral notes. Sweet malty flavor with a touch of spice that seems common in Belgian beers that I have tried. Pretty decent overall but the style is not my favorite. A good change of pace beer.

Almost like a cream soda! Aroma of vanilla and raisin. Flavor is heavy on the vanilla and dark fruit. Color is amber with quickly dissipating head. Palate is kinda like cream soda. Very nice beer!

Purchased at Winslow’s Tavern, Greenville, NC Nice, amber color. Fruity aroma. Solid overall; true to style.

I probably overrate Highland beers a little. This beer is not a dubbel. Its a Belgian ale IMHO. This beer is VERY VERY similar to De Koninck. poor a bottle into a Bolleke,,,,close your eyes ....and it will bring you back to drinking beer at the finer bars in Antwerp fresh and cheap...the perfect USA version of de konnick
