COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Once a year Flying fish adds dried organic cherries, lots ands lots of pricey cherries, to their abbey dubbel to create Lovefish. The cherries add a unique dimension to the already complex abbey dubbel. Give the object of your interest a glass of this an it will be love at first sip.

OBF. Very nice mix of dark fruit and caramel malts. Cherries might add another dimension, but they don’t jump out at you. Still, very nice Dubbel.

750 Thanks to the brewer of FF. Pour is muddy ruby color with thin dissapating head. Nose is cherries, sour, and some malt. Flavor was wattery and terrible. No cherry flavor at all and this brew was just bad. I dont know what when wrong here.

At Oregon Brewers Festival 2008 Pours out a nice brown topped with a off white head. A nice aroma of light cherries and spice. A little sweetness on it. A nice mix with the cherries and spice.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 28, 2008
On tap at OBF--Poured a deep chestnut body with a rich beige head. Lots of cheeries and dark fruits in the nose. Lots of malty caramel and sticky nutty residue. Quite good.

OBF 2008. I thought this was just going to be the dubbel they bring every year, but the cherries added a nice twist to it. I didn’t get a lot of cherry flavor, but it did tend to add a good sweet fruit flavor to the finish that before I read that this had cherries I thought tasted like pie. The spices blend well with caramel tones and a sweet fruit flavor to give this an interesting pie like flavor.

BuckeyeSammy (539) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2008
Very interesting beer, Belgian style.. Nice cherry undertones. Well balenced carbonation. Hints of spice in flavor. Thick beige head, apricot amber. Got this 750 at the brewery, thanks again CZettler.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2008
Pours a very dark amber/ brown color with beige head. Aroma is spicy and fruity with a lot of cherry and berries along with subtle hint of malt. Well balanced with a nice amount of roasted chocolate maltiness to balance out the cherry and spice flavors. Slightly dry finish.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2008
Draught: Aroma of cherries, medicine, and maybe a little juniper. Poured orange/amber in color with a medium-sized off-white head that diminished. Hazy. Sparkling. Tasted of cherries, then toasted malts, sourdough, pretzels, and a bit of chocolate. Medium body. Thin, sticky texture. Lively carbonation. Malty, salty finish.

Ty5592 (1018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2007
Draft. Amber/orange color with small head. Cherry aroma. The taste was like the abbey dubbel but with cxherry notes throughout. Malty with some plum flavors in the finish.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2007 Sampled at BCTC. Orange-amber body with a sudsy off-white head. Aroma of cherry twizzlers and a hint of cognac. Fruity sweet, cherry Life Savers taste with light herbal bitterness and a woody element. Smooth, medium full body is lightly syrupy, but makes for a pleasant sipper. This is a solid, well-made big fruit beer overall.
