3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2011 Bottle. The pour was a medium copper in color with an average sized off white foamy head that was mostly lasting and had some what fair lacing.
The aroma was of a toasted caramel malt, a light resin hop and a sweet yeast with a hint of apricot, banana, dried fruit and some spice (cinnamon and maybe a little nutmeg).
It tasted very light, sweet and malty with notes of sweet dried fruit and banana in the beginning and finished moderately sweet with a tinge of bitterness that had a nice malty feel to it with notes of caramel and spices at the end. Although I would have liked the flavor to last a nice long while, it only lasted a short time.
Mouthfeel was light to medium bodied and watery yet somewhat creamy in texture with a flat carbonation.
Overall a very enticing brew, but anything from this brewer seems to taste well.

Murky brown colour, average head, dense, no lacing. Aroma is caramel, yeast, dark fruit hints. Taste is dominantly sweet with a caramel malt base, sugar, dark/dried fruit notes. Maybe a slight hint of earthiness. A bit too much on the sweet side for my liking. Medium body, soft mouthfeel,slightly prickly on the tongue. Lacks character

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle @ Estaminet de la Longue Croix, Herdeghem, Belgium. Paired with a speculoos mousse desert and cassonade sugar. Pours deep, hazy copper with off-white head. Aroma is fruity, some spice. This was undoubtedly served too cold so much of the flavours were unfortunately lost on me. However, the spicy fruity yeast and caramel notes did go well with the ginger in the speculoos desert. Will have to re-rate this.

It’s good but not amaaazing like so many of the big Belgian names--esp after it warms, the aromatic hop notes are quite strong for the style and some metallic rusty malt elements help to distinguish it from its better cousins

Served in a tulip glass from a 330ml bottle. Hazy ruby colour with diminishing off-white head. Aroma is caramel, bread, yeast, dark fruits and malts. Taste follows the nose very closely: malts, bread, caramel and dark fruits notes, bitter-sweet with a hint of sourness, slightly bitter finish. Medium body with lively carbonation. Not bad but not the best.

0,33l bottle. Hazy dark copper/brown colour with shrinking big foamy off-white head. Aroma: Candy sugar, banana, fruits, notes of yeast. Well made. Taste: Sweet malty start with honey, than light bitterness, almost nothing. A bit sour but pleasent and well balanced. Creamy texture, warm feeling. Lively carbonation (surprisingly), medium body. Sweet, slighlty bitter finish. One of the best dubbels.

Tasted a lot like a wheat beer...bananas, caramel etc, but not very sweet at all, unlike a lot of belgian brown beers.
