3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Michael Jackson is apparently a HUGE fan of this beer. It’s like a light version of a quad - which is ok, but it lacks the dramatic impact that you get from a quad. It’s true that there is complexity, but at the same time, the flavors blend together somewhat. Raisins, figs, dates, toffee, caramel malt. The head is very fizzy, which I don’t care for. If they would add some floral hops (or just more hops of any kind), I think it would be much better.

Beautiful renewable foam with a lively aroma of hops and spices. The flavor is hoppy, slightly sweet and with an aftertaste persistent pleasant and round. I think alcohol taste is in a perfect relief to the beer’s other flavors.

Not sure I would call this a dubbel. It is a little too sweet and syrupy. Dry though.

Caramel and spice with a dirt kind of aroma. Taste banana and tart with some raisin and wine vinegar. Not too bad I appreciate the style but wouldn’t drink a bunch. Be sure to enjoy the Bruins before you try.

Dubbel, czyli to, co Belgowie robią świetnie. Brązowy kolor, spora, średnio- i grubopęcherzykowa piana. Piana szybko opadła... Aromat rodzynek, trochę czekolady i wina. W smaku nuty winne, ciemnych owoców, nieco karmelu. Delikatna goryczka, średnie wysycenie. Bardzo grzeczny, stonowany dubbel!

33cl bottle. Hazy dark brown colour with a nice off-white head. Caramel, malt, fruity and light spicy aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is complex but somehow balanced and with some tartness. Overall, a very interesting beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,33 l bottle from EDEKA Mohr, best before 22/11/2016. Clear, reddish amber with a huge, frothy, slowly diminishing, tan to white head. Nice fruity-spicy and a bit funky aroma of white grapes, green apple, sugar and lemon. Sweetish-spicy taste of sugar, white grapes, green apple, gingerbread, vanilla and lemon. Rather short, slightly bitter and minimally tart finish. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel, average carbonation. Expected a sweet, yeasty ale and got a more sophisticated, quite complex, refreshing example. I Really enjoyed it, especially the slight tartness balancing the sweet beginning.

Very sour both in aroma and in taste that overshadows other aspects of it.
