3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dubbel bem diferente. Leve e com razoável drinkabilidade. Menos doce que uma dubbel padrão. Vale a degustação. Tem um péssimo custo benefício. Recomendo apenas se estiver em promoção.

BOTTLE 33 CL at 6,5% ABV. Hazy red dark brown. Big beige head. A pretty common dubbel - toasted bread crust, light caramel malt sweetness and some spice (clove?). Also, some cereal sweetness with a touch of vomit. Easy drinking yet substantial body. Decent.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
75cl bottle. While having quite a soft aroma, the crisp and softly bubbly palate makes this malty and sweet beer very easy to drink. Almost too easy. And still very tasty at that!
