Purchased from the Brewpub and drunk on the same day.

A real nice, dry, sessionable abbey ale that maintains many of the flavors you'd come to expect from a Trappist in a much more approachable ABV.

The best part of this beer is the mouthfeel; which is creamy and full. All in all, another great effort from Bill and Ron.

This beer was brewed exclusively for the Chickie's & Pete's location inside of the Tropicana Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, NJ. Although Victory Brewing is a reputable name in this area, it certainly produced a well-crafted beer that is a hidden gem on the menu. Patrons will be pleasantly surprised by this offering, compared to other locally-produced Abbeys.

had on tap at the Chickie and Pete's at PHL airport

a pale yellow color, soapy white head. aroma and taste is typical of a pale Belgian beer - fairly clean malt flavor, dominated by the Belgian yeast flavors - herbal and earthy. thin body, higher carbonation.
