3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
OK, everything about this beer screams Tripel not dubble, which almost makes me think they put it in the wrong bottle, but thats all I will say about that because its still a great beer.
Aroma is sweet and spiced like apples and pears with cinnamon. Color is a deep golden with nice white head. Fairly malty flavor but those spiced fruit flavors come through quite a bit. A great beer, however misleading.

750 cork and caged bottle. Pours hazy gold-interesting color for a dubbel. Nose is a candi sugar and some tanginess. Well carbonated taste of some sugary maltiness, a bit grassy and some stickiness. Not bad but I donít consider this a traditional dubbel as I expected a little more malty flavor.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Draught House during the RateBeer Winter Gathering.
The beer pours a hazy brownish color with a white head. The aroma is a mix of toffee and caramel malt, with a little bit of Belgian yeast and some light fruit notes. The flavor is more of the same. The candy sugar makes the beer fairly sweet, as does a heavy dose of toffee and caramel. I get some cherry and orange notes, but their are fairly faint. There is also some Belgian yeast and some spicy notes in the flavor. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
