Abbey is one of the first beers brewed and released by New Belgium back in 1991. Since then it has been one of the brewery's most award-winning beers. This Belgian-style dubbel is designed to represent the monastic beers of Belgium.
When crafting a witbier, avoid overdoing any one aspect of it. Don’t go crazy with the spices. Keep the hopping level restrained. Don’t let fermentation temperatures rise too high. Don’t sour the beer excessively. Your beer should be flavorful, but all the flavors should be balanced.
