I didn’t really know anything about this beer when it was opened and shared by Mogotank. I was expecting something along the lines of Verhaeghe Duchesse De Bourgogne. Although this isn’t really at all a flanders red, it still has some very light hints of the same vinegar aroma and flavor associated with the Duchesse. It’s moderately sweet and malty and extremely smooth. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Very enjoyable.

draft @ Delirium. A dubbel, more like an easy to drink flemish red or sour brown. Ambrée, col beige fin laissant des bulles style champagne. Arôme léger pointe de bois/chêne, notes de baies rouges, malt grillé. En bouche, très légère et agréable à boire, mélange entre une pointe aigre très légère avec un mélange fruité rouges de baies allant vers la fraise, le tout sur un malt grillé voire biscuité et caramel. Petite aigreur donne un palais un peu poivré sur la langue avec un fini boisé et de baies rouges.

[11.2 oz bottle] Aroma was slight - some cherry, dried fruit, red wine hints. dark amber brown pour with thin but lasting off-white head. I love the taste of this beer, even though it is not at all representative of flemish sours - really subtle sour long in the finish, but a slightly sweet cherry note throughout. It drinks a bit fizzy and has an almost oily note in the palate. Not a great flemish sour, but an incredibly drinkable beer because of the unique taste.

Brown semi clear with deep red hues, quickly receding bubbly head. Nose is almost vinous yeast, with molasses, hint of plum. Pretty light body, lots of carbonation almost like soda, simple sweetness with a very nice tart funk to it. Overall too much carbonation and lack of depth.

On tap at Duckworths in Charlotte, served in a small chalice. The beer is a dark amber/red color nearly brown, with brownish highlights. The cream colored head is smallish and fairly tight, and recedes quickly leaving behind small bits of lacing here and there. The smell is fairly sweet and is comprised of cherries, plum, bits of vanilla, and oak. Really almost candy like, with just the smallest hint of tartness. The flavor follows suit with the aroma, fairly sweet with just the slightest bit of tartness. Cherries, plum, the oak is a bit more prominant in the flavor than it is in the aroma. An almost candy like sweetness. Medium bodied, and moderately carbonated. Overall the beer is decent, good but not great. Fairly easy to drink one of; I think it would be tough to get past the sweetness for a second or third pour.

Not overly carbonated this beer lacks intensity and flavour. Was expecting a lot more than this.

Dark brown-red, beige foam. Aroma is odd, cooked grain, whispers of oak and cheery, but overall not very pleasant. Taste is very similar, more of a cooked grain taste, some oak, a more pleasant fruitiness with cherry and some berry tones. Light tartness from the fruit aspects. Meh, I bought this thinking it was more of an Oud Bruin or Flemish Red rather than an Abbey Dubbel.
