3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, picked up from The Hop Duvel, Gent, Belgium, consumed 26-12-07 Pours chesnut brown with an off-white head and the cheekiest of red glints shining through. This initially tasted a bit thin (no bad thing and quite a relief after all of those heavier beers) Gentle carbonation sends bubbly sweet malts and unripe plum flavours whipping through the mouth, a really lovely fruitiness to this beer. Found this quite intriguing and a change from the bigger brasher beers, it really hits the spot. Very nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Poured dark brown with reddish tint, the head is thin and off white. Aroma is sweet malt. The taste follows up that sweet malt but has a dry alcohol finish that tingles. Overall very balanced dubbel.

Sampled at woodshop tasting, Brown pour, somewhat malty, fruity, easy drinking, never would expect an 8% alc. content. Decent brew.
