Abbey Ale

22oz bomber from Tower on Piedmont, Atlanta, GA, USA. $4.99, I *think*.
A little more attractive than your average Dubbel. More clarity and a slightly more reddish tinge rather than the dirty brown dishwater note that often accompanies the style. Head and lace are there, but fairly minimal.
Serious fruity and bubblegum nose with some definite yeasty notes. Belgian character in the nose but it seems a touch artificial or “plastic” to me.
The tastes reflect the nose. Yeast notes, some banana but lacks much Belgian candy sugar. Still sweet, but finishes drier than the start would suggest. Lighter than many examples of the style, and the beer is pretty drinkable.
