3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Rich dark fruits and malty aroma. Dark mahogany color with a vigorous tan head. Near medium body with a moderate carbonation. The flavor is dark cherry fruit. Notes of pineapple? The whole aspect is light dark fruit, but this is a dubbel? Very pleasant. The finish is the same as the start. Most excellent. Vanilla notes seem to erupt at the very finish. Canít avoid cherry. Itís a really good drink.

Pours clear brown with a small, frothy, beige head. Aroma has quite a lot of chemical notes, apple and lightly spicy notes. High carbonation, very thin. Flavour is weirdly spicy, green apples, light sweetness, vinious. Weird and thin.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 mL bottle from Whole Foods Market, Charlottesville, VA. Pours a dark ruby tinted brown color with a large brown frothy head. Aroma of grainy malts, brown sugar and a tart note. Really a faint aroma. Taste is tart cherries, cola, grain, caramel, leafy notes. Medium bodied. A decent effort, especially considering this is gluten free, but as far as dubbels go, this sucks.
