3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl. Dark copper-brown with a large meringue cap that leaves the glass sticky. Earthy spice and grain, some slight root vegetable in the aroma. Flavors of sweet molasses, grain, and sourish caramel cola are dried a bit by some astringent and understated grassy hops. Near-medium body is fairly smooth, and has some tingle.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer is vastly underrated. A notch below the Trappist beers, but definitely an outstanding Belgian dubbel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
More potent in aroma and flavor than the Blonde. Aroma and flavors are of a belgian candy sweetness (close to toffee). Good warming finish.

Small bottle purchased at BOTW and consumed right away. Dark garnet red color with a thin head of white film, spotted with heavier spots of white cream. Aroma is rich, sweet, toffee. Flavors are similar. Pretty nice stuff. I’m impressed by the brewer. Clean and easy to drink.

The bottle looks really good, the beer in the glass also. Creamy foam. Tastes delicious. Strong, a little bit alcoholic, very drinkable. Good beer!
