Pours chestnut brown from the bottle. Aroma is cherry soda and lightly yeasty. Taste has a dry sweetness, strong fruit notes ( mostly cherry) and a hint of caramel. Body remains on the light side. Decent stuff.

Brązowe piwo o obfitej pianie, która zdobi szkło i redukuje się do warstewki na powierzchni. Aromat ciemnych owoców, głownie rodzynki. W smaku lekko kwaskowe, trochę owocowe, trochę ciemnych słodów. Goryczka średnia. Ogólnie bardzo udany dubel, typowy dla stylu, pijalny.

Pours golden color, clear, almost brilliant, with long lasting, very stable white creamy head (actually was untouched till last ship). Visually high carbonation. Aroma: muscat grape, some spices, florals...peaches, apples...flavor: bread, toffee like malt flavor, with spicy, floral, slightly citrusy notes of hops and grape like esters. Finish is very dry, slightly bitter, which lasting in aftertaste. Body is light to medium, texture soft, carbonation is medium.

UjoKlobasa (606) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 21, 2016
Bottle. Brown chestnut color, hazy liquid, not much of a head. Banana smell. Aroma of alcohol, banana, liquor, honey, malt. Good, but alcohol is too dominant in this one.

datrael (220) - Kraków, POLAND - JUL 24, 2016
W aromacie i smaku dominacja zbożowości i słodowości, nieco estrów. Ładne w wyglądzie - brązowe z solidną beżową pianą. Lekkie, przyjemne, dobre piwo, nagroda po całodziennej pracy.

Dark brown pour with slight brown top. No lacing. Aromas of sweet malt and slight astringency. Flavor is somewhat watery, but pleasant. Lots of malt and some hop balance. Finish is similar. Very drinkable.

33cl bb10/2018. - Named after an Augustine Abbey closed after the French Revolution, since 1906 contract brewed in "hommage" by defunct Keersmaekers in Oud-Turnhout who have now acquired a 100% in Du Bocq...and not a trace of any of them on the label. Bienvenue en Belgique. Ergo: "Corsendonk", like Leffe, is a beer firm and swindle label, reaching from the faux-abbey purist bottle design to the tight-lipped info about ingredients used ("contains barley malt"). - Pours a brackish brown plum juice with macro yeast eyes. Aroma very reticent, especially at the proposed serving temp of 4-6 C. Maybe some banana and plum, instant fruit sugars. Taste is basically old prune juice with two lumps of cassonade Graeffe, carbonation tongue numbingly high, brownish hop bitterness late, basic and bananapeel-metallic. The candi/y sugar in the frontal lobes of the skull starts to build after the 2nd sip... Like drinking sugary banana&plum bubble gum. Soulless brew. Why is this cheap 80s-style atrocity a TOP 50 Abbey Dubbel? #AnachronisticBelgianWorldExports #LiquidHeadache #AllMaltSharia4BelgianContractBrewers

puren (693) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - JUL 19, 2016
klarowne, bursztynowo-rubinowe, bardzo obfita piana dość szybko opada do cienkiej warstwy, ładnie zdobi szkło;
metal, pomarańcza, cukier kandyzowany, rum;
ciało średnie, puszyste, średnio nasycone, goryczkowy finisz;
drewno, karmel palony, rum, cukier kandyzowany i karmelowo-drewniana goryczka;
poniżej przeciętnej, w aromacie silne żelazo, połączenie wydawałoby się fajnych nut daja nieprzyjemny posmak, całość jest nijaka.

Pours with a three finger, khaki head that leaves a little lace. Opaque brown color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Light roasted malt nose. Flavor follows, a hint of soapy bitterness at finish. $4.80 for a 330ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.
