Bottle via MartinT in trade. Golden brown pour with low lumpy tan head. Nose of unsweetened tea. Light body of same with some light fruit coming out near finish. Not sweet as I had expected...hmm. I nice light brew for installing a new light in the laundry room.

reebtogi (4388) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 14, 2012
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.

tom10101 (3103) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 1, 2012
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"...

LBarouf (114) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2012
341ml bottle
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).

solidfunk (4491) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Smells sweet, malty. Pours mahogany. Some decent lacing and head. Tastes just sweet without much interesting palate. A little roast malt and smoked in the aroma as well. Bottle from Delires du terroir.

rarbring (1550) - Linköping, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2012
Aroma: Smelling roasted barley, burnt rubber, blackcurrant leaves.
Appearance: A clear brownish read beer with a warm off-white head, little lacing but good curtains.
Taste: Starting with brown toast, toffee, fruits, grape-fruit peel.
Palate: Medium carbonation, soft and sticky, big body.
Overall: A malt dominated brew. Rather bland.
Note: Bottle 341 ml, thx to KM. Reviewed 2012-08-25.

Frothmeister (587) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2012
341ml bottle. Pours a beautiful hazy dark brown with red hues, and a huge beige head of fine bubbles. The aroma has strong mineral notes, with dates, bitter red fruit, alcohol, bread crust, coffee, earthy notes, and dough. As for taste, it’s very sour (under-ripe plum), with a little butter, woodyness, dried fruits, rotten red fruit, molasses, coffee, green beans, and a bitter finish. It’s weird. I wouldn’t recommend it, but I don’t fully dislike it either. I can’t say that I’ve ever tasted a beer like this, and it’s kind of growing on me the more I have. Beware I guess...

Ratman197 (10216) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a lasting creamy tan head. Aromas of coriander, carmel, cocoa, fruittiness and light molasses. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of carmel, toffee, cola, fruittiness, coriander and light spice with a crisp lingering toffee/coriander finish.

Ric_Olie (7) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2012 does not count
Bottle. I am not a pro in Dubbel, but this one seems to be pretty near the style (according to what I read) The smell of the beer is very yeasty, but fruity too. In the mouth, the beer is very heavy. Good, but heavy. It is a fruity beer, very sweet. The color of the beer is Ruby Red. Hazy, but not totally cloudy. The finish of this beer is lightly bitter, almost sour. Very complex, but definitly for degustation, not for drinking on a patio.
