Can poured into a pint glass at home. Pours deep amber with fluffy light off-white head that lingers a bit. Taste is earthy, spicy, and malty. Medium bodied, great carbonation making it a real smooth drinker. A Dubbel done very well, and I was digging it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rich, very hazy amber coloured body with a copper glow and a nice, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of malt, grain, caramel, light citrus hops, some raisins and a touch of apples - nice and relatively sweet smelling without any perceived yeast or pungency. Medium-bodied; Assertive hop flavour of citrus and light pine with a touch of honey right behind and a relatively strong malt flavour with grain and rye coming through. Aftertaste doesn’t show much body at all, no yeast and only a dry hop character with a touch of grain. Overall, a very interesting beer for the style - not like a typical dubbel at all, but not a bad beer - just different - more hops, less body, no yeast and a grain flavour make this decidedly american, so does the can! I sampled this twelve ounce can (I like having traditionally belgian styles in cans) purchased from Whole Foods in Washington (Foggy Bottom, I St), DC on 04-April-2014 for US$2,49 sampled at home in Washington on 09-September-2014.
