3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Overflows out of the bottle, pours a dark brown with a big fluffy tan head. Fruity with yeasty funky aroma, light sourness - touch of vinegar and tomato juice? WTF? Flavour is fruity, sweet caramel and malt. Fruity tang that is just ever so slightly sour and tart. Could be mildly infected ( a check of some other ratings mention similar flavours) or maybe just yeasty Belgian funk. Average to medium palate, touch syrupy. (3+) Bottle courtesy of 1FastSTI.

Something about this beer just MAKES you enjoy it! Has a nice billowing head that doesn´t disapear after the first sip. This beer produces a one of a kind aroma that just dares you to taste it. It bites a little at first but goes down quite easily after first sip. The unique thing about Grimbergen is that it leaves a wonderful taste in you mouth. This is a must try for anyone!

30cl bottle. Poured a clear brown with minimal head. Nose had vinegar, and some candy malt. Flavor was a mix of sweet and sour. malty sweetness, but with a dose of vinegar too. Maybe this bottle was going bad, because it didn’t taste like any other double I’ve had. But it was still drinkable.

This bottled brew poured a large sized head of foamy frothy mix fine to large sized long lasting light brown colored bubbles thick lace. The body contained soft carbonation, was hazy and brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild brown malt . Its mouth feel is slightly thick caramel with a mellow palate and a aftertaste. Its flavor contained good brown beer caramel malt toffee notes and was very tasty. An excellent beer that I would buy again.
