2.16/5 rDev -35.1%
look: 2.25 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.25
um, yellow pour, no head. lifeless in the tulip glass and I have to lie the bottle sideways in the refrigerator because it's too darned tall.
smell is bland- cross between a crummy pilsner, a crummy ipa and an attempt to be a Belgian ale.
taste is okay. a little harsh, a little alcohol burn. certainly nowhere near spectacular. I wouldn't buy it again.
overall, I was fooled by the marketing. i'm okay trying something new and spending a little cash but this is theft. it was like $10 for this bottle at Total Wine and quite prominently displayed in front of the aisle. I DID have a sneaking suspicion that they were trying to get rid of it, but at $10 I figured it would be decent. cant trust anyone these days....
update on the 2nd half of this bottle.... I threw it away....

Abbey Beverage CO.
Pours a light perfectly clear gold. Bone white head forms and recedes away to a wisp. Aromas of Belgian yeast, mild floral notes and malt sweetness. In the taste, mildly fruity and pear like Belgian yeast, candi sugar, moderately sweet with a fairly strong presence of alcohol. Definitely a tripel in style, with mildly spicy yeast notes, pale malt sweetness, and some kick to it. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, well carbonated, slightly thin. Overall, not a bad beverage definitely worth trying, nice to see some new product from Abbey Bev.
Serving type: on-tap
