An interesting take with the cherries added. Theres a slight aroma of them and some more hints in the flavor with malt throughout. Would like to try again.

Tap at Andy’s, nice golden color with reddish tones, nose was sweet, pretty much just cherries. Taste was fantastic, with the sweetness of the cherries hitting early and late, and the character of the dubbel carrying the middle. If this had been the only beer I had that night, it would have been worth the hour+ drive.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2007 Poured a copper color with a small off white head and no lacing. Fake plastic aroma of some fruit and hops. Young fruity taste of cherry, berry, and grape as well as a mild malt and phenol taste. Some carbonation led way to an average mouthfeel.

This is a good Fruit Beer. One of a few that I like they usually are too sweet for my taste. This one had a nice balance of malt and fruit (cherry) flavors. Finishes clean and smooth.

Excellent balance between the fruit and malt. They both compliment each other.

Tap. Reddish brown, no real head. A fruity cherry and raisin aroma, but subdued (a little more would be nice). Flavor is sweet and malty, with a well blended cherry flavor, that fits the dubbel flavor nicely. Not necessarily my thing, but reasonably well made.

I enjoy drinking Flying Fish's dubbel, especially in the winter months. This beer comes to the Grey Lodge Pub in Philadelphia every Valentine's Day. The cherries add to the Dubbel's complex flavor and makes a great blend of beer and fruit. Worth trying, but with limited production (this year only two kegs) its up to you to seek it out.
