Beer Review: Grimbergen Abbey Ale

Another selection from Charlie’s Kitchen.

Beer: Abbey Ale
Brewer: Grimbergen
Source: Draught
Rating: *** (7.3 of 10)

Comments:  I can’t find an Abbey Ale on the web, but I believe I tasted the Grimbergen Dubbel since it was brown in color.  Whatever it was, it was a darn fine beer in the Belgian abbey traditions.  In addition to the chestnut brown color and a thick creamy head, this gave off a rich beery aroma.  The beer has a crisp, dry taste that doesn’t linger on the tongue, but grows deeper in flavor as the beer mellows in the glass.  Very tasty.  I’d drink it again.
