Abita Abbey Ale

Abita Brewing Co

USA

A strong showing by Abita! They really seem to have spread their wings quite a bit since Katrina, pushing the envelope on the styles they've brewed (must be all the sales of Restoration Ale, and the continued mass appeal of Turbodog, financing this effort). I really enjoyed this. I had it in a 22oz bomber, and drank it from a goblet. It had a nice sweet plumb-like flavor, and was close to most Dubbels I've had. It had a decent but not overpowering 8%abv. A worthy effort on their part, and one which I would consider buying again just to see how well it cellars.
