Beer: New Belgium Abbey Belgian Style Ale
Brewery: New Belgium Brewing Company

Tasting Notes: Red in color with a cream head that goes. A banana aroma. Flavor is banana and slightly spicy. Highly carbonated with a good mouth-feel.
Description: Winner of four World Beer Cup medals and eight medals at the Great American Beer Fest, Abbey Belgian Ale is the Michael Phelps 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 five 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.
Comments: Bitterness = 20 IBUs.
