Notes/Commercial Description:
A Belgian-style abbey ale crafted like those that Trappist monks brew for their own session beer. It is light bodied, light in color and relatively lower in alcohol with spicy phenolics and complex fruity esters of cherries, nectarines, peaches and bubblegum with a characteristic slightly tart and dry finish from the Belgian yeast.

Destihl Abbey's Single has a thick, white, crackly-foamy head, a very hazy, gold-orange appearance, some bubble streams, and a thin lace sheet left behind. The aroma is of pungent, peppery, funky, spiced bread, with possibly a shade of fruit spritz. Taste is of those elements, with a somewhat stronger citrus component, mellow bitterness, sugar, pepper, white bread, and white bread crust. Mouthfeel is medium and prickly from carbonation. Destihl Abbey's Single finishes mostly dry and decently drinkable.

Pours a clear golden color with a frothy white head that little bits of lacing.

Smells of sweet grains and some fruits.

Tastes of the grainy sweetness with a layer of fruits and a little spice. Grainy sweetness leads off with a touch of bread. This gives way to a bit of fruits with pear and apples coming through mostly. A touch of peppery spice comes towards the end. All of the right notes are present, but it comes off a bit light.

Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is okay, but not really worth a look.

Served in a sampler glass at Barrington Brew Fest 2013.

A new offering from Destihl, harkening back to the table beers of brewer-monks of yore (and today, I s'pose). It pours a mostly-clear pear-straw topped by a miniscule halo of off-white bubbles. The nose comprises mild bread, light banana peel, a pinch of clove, and a hint of green apple. The taste, though, goes sideways quickly, establishing a veneer of bland apple juice mixed with generic banana bread. The body is a light medium, with a light (almost flat) carbonation and a slick, nearly gelatinous feel. Overall, this thing just didn't work for me, as the flavors seemed to go rather askew for decent beer in general, let alone anything close to the style at hand.
