 Some Abbey ales are produced in Belgium in monasteries, some using the old abbey recipes, and  some just use the name of a saint, but they are not brewed by monks. This term is also used by American craft brewers to describe their interpretation of the Belgian abbey style.The two most popular are the dubbel and tripel. Dubbels are dark amber to brown in color with moderate alcohol. Their generalized flavor profile is chocolate and fruity towards the raisin or plum. The standard for the tripel is a golden orange color with an abv of 8-9% a hoppy snap with a light fruit flavor and a bit of spice to the finish.
