COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Ingredients: Hops, malt, water, yeast, sucrose, spices.
Named after the original name of the brewery - De Gouden Arend (the Golden Eagle).
Arend Double has a warming sweet caramel flavour in combination with a subtle bitterness of hops. The full-bodied aftertaste turns this beer into a modern top fermented quality product.

Douberd (2189) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at home, into a big tulip glass. ABV 6.5% Brown chestnut colour, seems quite clear, with nice activity in the glass. Head is tan in colour, with good height, maybe one and a half finger, good density too. Good retention as well, eventually collapses leaving light lacing around the glass and quite a bit of foam on the beer’s surface. Aroma is slighty lactic, has some wood and cork, red fruits and grapes. Very interesting aroma. After it has warmed up a bit some caramel notes seem to surface and maybe some toffee. Taste has a nce sourness in it, with grapes again, some more toffee now and light roasted malts, but still it’s not your typical dubbel. Red fruits dominate here, along with wood-cork and some spice like notes on the finish. Medium on the body with a good mount of carbonation and a light dryness on the palate. Overall this was quite nice, different than what I was expecting but still very good.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 6, 2014
Bottle @All My Vinyl Tasting, Edinburgh. Loved the nose, excellent spicy, sherbet with some apple fruit going on, really nice. Too sweet in the mouth with a fruity unripe apple thing going on.

Bottle at home. Hazy copper brown, big off-white head. Aromas of green apples and light spice. Sweet malt taste, more apples. Sticky finish. OK.

EddyBeer1 (864) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 9, 2014
Brune tirant vers l’ambré, effervescence moyenne, col beige clair qui tombe vite. Caramel léger, sucre candi, mini amertume et... pas grand chose d’autre!
