COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned and filtered keg.
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.

Noctilucus (100) - All over Belgium, BELGIUM - JAN 17, 2013
Brownish red with a good head of lasting beige foam; unclear and more brown coloured once the yeast from the bottom has been added The nose is a mix of bitter and light sour, in which the hops really come through, refreshing and almost sharp but not unpleasant; underneath there seems to be some fruity sweetness and spices The taste is more roasted than the smell led to believe, quit sour (lemon-ish), going in the direction of some Vlaams Oud Bruins (tannin) but with more spices and a lightly roasted character. Quite a strong taste even if in itself it’s a rather light beer and more of a thirst quencher. I believe that the sourness that I’m picking up comes mostly from spices. Some of the sourness remains in the aftertaste, smoothened a bit by the roasted malts that now become more apparent once the sourness is not so prominent anymore. Back at the time when I rated this, I found it to be too sour to my liking and quite spiced... Perhaps I should re-rate this

sblsimone85 (251) - USA - JAN 2, 2013
Ottima dubbel, incredibilmente beverina pur restando dolcina e profumata di frutti rossi, con note di liquerizia molto persistenti. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

psilosophy (491) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - AUG 28, 2012
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur Cola, mousse correcte de tenue moyenne. Au nez, elle sent un peu comme une bière aigre douce genre "Rodenbach", c’est une brune aux arômes torréfié ( malts grillés, cacao, légèrement boisée) mais peu d’amertume, au contraire une légère pointe acide en fin de bouche. Dommage, la texture en bouche manque d’un peu de peps. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert
