3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2006 Bottled (BB 02/2007)
Dark ruby color, not much head. Yeasty, sugary, fruity aroma with kind of glue-like notes. Starts promising as an abbey dubbel: fruity, enough alcoholic and malty. Unfortunately finishes too quickly and leaves full impression a bit empty. Quality beer it is for sure, for the masses. (7/3/7/3/13 3.3)
Re-rated, bottled [BB 02/2007)
Dark ruby color, decent tan head. Fruity (plums, vigs) aroma, also sweet caramelly with metallic side notes. Notably alcoholic, fruity (raisins), sweet toffeeish. Cellaring of 3-4 years would be interesting. (6/4/7/3/13 3.3)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown, light quick-fading offwhite head. Smells of caramels and a slight hoppyness. Tastes alot like danish hvidtøl though more concentrated and a little less sweet and more complicated. An ok dubbel, though still too sweet for my taste.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice fresh bread aroma full of yeast and delicious goodness, dark rust color to the beer with an off white head. The flavor is a little limited not as complex as I would like, but does contain accents of roasted walnut, deep hue dark cherry, and rich violet plum. With a head that reduces a little faster than I would like so did the taste living a warm and supple yeast characteristic. This is a nice beer and should be tasted by all.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Amber colour, mediumsized off-white head. Weak fruity and yeasty aroma. Fruity, sweet plummy flavour. Not too exciting, quite standard dubbel.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Wow, this is pretty higly rated...
I thought this beer was pretty bad. The things that stick out for me were the bready aroma and taste that was pretty one dimensional. There were some unknown spice that really didn’t add to the flavour. Medium bodied with that ruddy brown colour and a smal head that in belgian fashion sticks around until it’s done.

Wonderful dark brown-red colour. Small but thick redish head that sticks to the glass. Smell is spicy sweet and the taste adds caramel and smokiness. Beer has a great body too.
