3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bière brune aux reflets cuivrés avec un mince col de mousse. Nez de sucre cuit avec un peu de fruits rouges en profondeur. En bouche, la bière est plus pétillante qu’escompté, avec un goût de grains grillés (qui confère une amertume) et de cassonade (qui vient adoucir le portrait final).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2013/07/01 - Pours a dark amber brown colour with a creamy khaki head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is sweet roasted malts, toffee, molasses and dark fruits. Taste is similar to nose with a bitter coffee start and a sweet caramel aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium with smooth and creamy carbonation. Taste is a little more subdued than expected given the aroma, but still a very drinkable dubbel.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
341ml bottle pours a dark amber color with a finger of light beige head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild but pleasant with some dark fruits and roasted grains. Taste is a dark fruity and malty sweetness with a roasted grain and light hop bitterness. Body is a little thin for the style, but carbonation is acceptable. Not the best dubbel out there, but certainly worth a try.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle (341 ml). Brown with a small beige head and some lacing. Aroma is light with some fruits, brown sugar and malt. Taste is about the same with a slight bitter finish. Mouthfeel is watery and acid. Body is thin. So far, I’m not impressed by the "Assoiffé series"...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance : Clear dark amber with medium head. Light lacing.
Aroma : Light belgian yeast with light caramel. Light nutty notes. Some red fruits. Interesting fruits. Light hops too. A bit spicy
Taste : Yeast with red fruits. Some brown sugar. Spicy and nutty.
Palate Finish is spicy with notes of cinnamon. Light bitterness, not much sugar. Carbonation quite soft which isn’t exactly to style. Well maybe not soft but is starts pickly and quickly fades. Not sure this is bottle conditioned. Light banana bread on finish...
Overall : Not bad. Nose slightly better than taste. Would have liked a little bit more residual sugar and a fluffier carbonation. Quite drinkable and rather complex especially considering the low abv. Quite clean and well brewed. I think finish is a bit too bitter for the style (probably due to the lack of residual sweetness).
