Poured a cloudy, orange tinted, medium amber with a thin tan head that dropped to just a film rather quickly. The aroma was mild with primarily sweet roasted malts and dark brown sugar. There was some raisin and dried dark fruits. The beer had a light creamy texture and good carbonation that lead to a light tart, crisp taste. There was good caramel malt sweetness and a hint of chocolate. The finish was mellow with a nice alcohol warmth

22 oz bottle - I donít drink a lot of Belgians, so Iím not sure what they are supposed to smell like. This one has a pleasant enough aroma. Orange with a white head. Roast flavor with a sweet aftertaste. Iím not a huge fan of the style, but I do like this beer.

Pours copper with a medium off white head and good retention. Aroma of Belgian yeast and malts with mild solvent notes. Bready fruits as it warmed. Flavor is much the same minus the solvent. Mild spiciness and Belgian funk. Little bit of tang on the back end. I always buy Full Sail products, and they are always respectable, but they always leave me wanting. Same here. Wish there was more to it.

This beer is too much soda like, cola in particular. Full Sail is nothing special from experience.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep amber with thin white head. Nose most notable for a faint hint of sweet malt. Spicy and bubbly on the tongue with medium body. Starts with toasty malt and finishes with a hint of orange and bitters. Not a bad dubbel.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright copper-brown colored, very thin head. Mild aroma of candied apricots. Medium bodied - well attenuated - in a more authentically belgian way than other american examples of the style. Very drinkable, but lacking the malt complexity or big punch of flavor needed to rate it higher.
