Flavours of flowers, fruits, hay, peach, banana, yeast, some malts, herbs, bitter and light spicy.
Aftertaste of yeast, hay, malts and bitter.
Low carbo, soft creamy mouthfeel, medium body and a creamy texture.
Mediocre and a bit unbalanced.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl trade at ZBF 2013. Brewed Oct2012. Apparently exclusive brew for Heeren v Liedekercke, strangely by Boelens... Dubbel-brown Belgian ale with Interesting complexity: an Oud Bruin/traces of geuze buried beneath a dry abbey-style dark ale: notes of roasted and chocolate malt, some fruit and figs and a shy Rodenbach sourness. Easy drinking for a hard-to-grasp blend.

Pours an amber brown beer with a good white head. Smells like a hoppy pilsner. The taste is boring.
