Tashi’s house, 28/05/08. Bottle was a present from Tashi after his trip to Brugge. Pours a ruby colour with a small head. Somewhat over carbonated. Standard Belgian dubbel aroma and flavour, with a coconut note also. Rather tart on the tongue and overall a poor example of the style.

Tap at De Halve Maan. Dark brown color with a lacing tan head. Mediu, body with carbonation that sparkles. Starts dark; but not sweet. Seems to have floral hop. Reminds a bit of cola. Finishes dry and almost refreshing. Very good.

Bottle from Dad’s holiday. Looks alright. Smell isn’t that exciting tho’. Dubbels are nearly always lovely, but this lacks punch and quality. A tinge abrasive and with a midget of vinegar nestled hence. OK.
