Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2008
It’s a dark brown beer with a very nice and lasting head. The flavour is sweetish with notes of fruit (plum, raisin), caramel and a moderate bitterness in the long finish, where the grapefruit acidity, that I find in the Grimbergens, com in. But in this one it’s in a nice way, and as such this is the Grimbergen, that I like the best.

imdownthepub (10123) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2007
Bottled, filtered, 330ml at A ge Pannes, Schin op Geul, NL Limburg. Dark brown with cream head. Another I thought I had rated in the past, thank god for a PDA and a beer list. Sugary sweet dubbel without too much to overcome the sweetness. There is some malty fruitiness if you try and a touch of deep roasted malt, but I am beggining to struggle with the Belgian taste for sweetness.

bierkoning (10001) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2002
A sweet, vegetable-like aroma with some roasted malt. Sweet, malty and fruity taste. Slight bitter aftertaste. A bit sticky. Disappointing for a abbey ale.

Koelschtrinker (10000) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 16, 2011
Das Dubbel hat die selben Characktereigenschaften wie das Blonde - mild, frisch, süffig. Schon im Antrunk ist dieses Bier recht malig, ein herbes Aroma schließet mit säuerlichem Ton daran an. Im Nachgeschmack gewinnt das malzige Aroma wieder die überhand und ist deutlich intensiver als im Antrunk. Nicht so überragend wie das Blonde, dennoch nicht zu verachten. Test vom 17.2.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,9,10,9,13,9 - 9,55

Lubiere (9865) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2008
A reddish brown ale with a thick creamy moka head. Nice caramel toffee aroma with orange peels notes. In mouth, a sweet caramel malt, orange peels and light hopping, treacle notes. Medium bodied. A classy dybbel. Bought at Supersol, Vall d’Hebron, 1.35 E. and tasted mid Nov. 2006.
