3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle, courtesey of tderoeck - merci! Pleasant enough and smooth light dubbel with all toffee malt notes in place, smooth and yet light creamy palate. Might be influenced by the matter-of-fact label, or it might be the underprofiled style, but I find there is nothing exceptional here to win me over and thus have this down as almost clinically "correct".

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma caramellato e zuccherino ma a differenza delle classiche dubbel emerge una spiccata (per lo stile) nota tostata. Bruna con abbastanza schiuma mediamente persistente. Al palato riconferma tutto ciò che è stato riscontrato nell’aroma. Buon corpo ma beverina grazie alle note luppolate e "caffettose" del finale. Buona ma non mi ha fatto gridare di gioia.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 330ml.- at Sörspecialista.hu, Budapest. Almost black coloured, small beige head, light caramel in the nose. Sweet malty, caramel, mild chocolate and dried fruits with touch of alcohol in the finish. Dry spicy finish. Not bad, better than Witbier but rather average beer.
