3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub De Halve Maan, Bruges.
Dark ruby colour, with pale brown head. Ashes, metal and caramel aroma. Caramelly malty in flavour, slight toasty with a bit of chocolate, the latter lingers. Long flavour here. The Belgian yeast phenols makes it well feel like a stronger Dunkelweizen, with a touch of compost, and earthiness from the yeast and the dark malts. Solid beer!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. A lively beer, trying to sneak out of the bottle. It pours an unclear dark amber body with floaties and good carbonation. A big, lasting beige head sits on top. Dried fruits and dark candi-sugar dominates the aroma. There’s a little yeasty touch and some blackcurrant as well. The flavor is sweet and fruity, with some alcohol, a little bitterness, a hint of dark berries, some yeasty notes and a hint of spices. Full-bodied, effervescent and warming. It dries up quite a lot in the finish, where the alcohol plays a major part, and a fine bitterness lingers. Overall, it’s too effervescent and sweet, but I really like the way it gets quite dry in the finish. Sure won’t shy away from drinking more of this. 100227

Was a bit disappointing. Had this one at De Zuid @ KNSM eiland in Amsterdam. On bottle. Head died rather quickly, body was a bit weak. All in all not the best dubbel I have had.

At the brewpub in Brugges. Came to my table a light brown with an off white head. The aroma was fruity and yeasty. It was sweet and a little watery. Not bad, but I’ve had better.
