33 cl bottle, $2.30 @ Binny’s, Jul ’09. Hey, 800th rating for this beer. Got a nice goblet that receives a deep red-brown, opaque beer, with a fluffy tan head. I sniff nice sweet Belgian malts and a bit of sugar, plus a bit of sourness. First thing I notice when sipping is that its texture is kind of light.Still some nice malt, sweetness is not as pronounced as some Belgian abbey beers. A little toffee if I hold some beer in my mouth, and a bit of sourness, maybe as much as in a Guinness. A bit of plum and fruitcake a little down the glass. Works out pretty nice. Mild alcohol note. Label description implies a bottle fermentation, but there’s no sediment in this one.

33 cL bottle. Very weak caramel aroma. Reddish brown color with a minimal, tan head that disappears very quickly. Taste: medium sweetness, hints of caramel and dried fruit. Not very pronounced, but quite nice nonetheless. Full body, strong carbonation. Nothing too special but definitely a nice dubbel.

Kirkas, tumma, punertavanruskea olut kohtalaisella, beigellä ja pitsiä jättävällä vaahdolla. Tuoksu kevyen maltainen, marjainen ja belgihiivainen. Maku happaman marjainen, mutta sopivasti kevyellä makealla toffeisella maltaisuudella höystettynä. Pehmeä, melko täyteläinen suutuntuma. Oikein toimiva kokonaisuus.

BBE 19.06.17. Mustanpunainen, ok semiviipyvä vaahto. Tuoksussa makeaa marjaa? Suutuntuma kuohuvan hapokas, makea, vahva, aromikas, joskin yksinuottinen. Kiva.
