Bottle from Beermerchants. It pours hazy golden yellow with a large quickly dissipating white head. The nose is wheat, sweet tangerine, pepper and coriander. The taste is tangerine, peach, pepper, clove, wheat, wood, herbal notes and a sweet background with a dry, spicy finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and velvety mouth-feel. Well balanced. Dynamic stuff.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of yeast, coriander, orange, and an almost cloying overripe fruit sweetness. Taste is similar , not very sweet but little bitterness to hold it up so it feels very out of balance. No trace of ginger. Interesting but don’t need to try again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light orange, amber colour.
The first nose approach is quite discreet. It’s primary flavor is bathed in a hard dry bitterness on a pepper background, with some refreshing citrus touches. Soft finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Piccolo Parco in Taipei. Smells of lots of sweet bready malt, fruit, a bit of spice, alcohol. Taste is not as malty as the aroma but still sweet with a touch of pepper. Body is very smooth with good amount of carbonation (though not as much as you'd expect, necessarily, given that it's a Belgian dubbel). Very drinkable even if it's not the most exciting beer out there.
