Very nice looking ruby/copper hue. Nice medium sized white head with little to no lacing. Smells of malt and rubber. Tastes of caramel and soured malt. Very thin and bitter.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
24th March 2011
Bottle at Arends Nest. Hazy amber beer, good off white head. Nice creamy vanilla nose. Softish dry palate. A little mildy sweet vanilla malt. Not really getting any specific honey, just an overall sweeteness. Soft and dry finish. Decent enough if somewhat over dry.

This beer is amber in colour, the taste is quite dry and not that disimilar to a lager in taste

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange-brown color with a large head and a lot of CO2. Smells malty fermented, fruity, subtly sweet. Starts dominant malty with some earthy-bready note, and very recent. The taste is also malty sweet, and again becoming some woodier. Successful Dubbel.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2011
08/01/2011 - 30cl bottle @ home (2011-9) Thanks to George for the bottle!
Dark orange to amber coloured beer, little cloudy. White head dissipates immediately after pouring. Aroma: caramel, ripe fruits, spices, roasted malts, hops. MF: lots of carbon, light to medium body. Taste: hops and citrus fruits, a little sweet malts. Aftertaste: citrus, not too much hops. Simple yet more complex then I would have imagined. This brewery has surprised me for the second time (first time was with the Zondebok).

Bottle at home. Smells like a mixture of pilsener with milk. Amber coloured, nice head, but won’t hold to long. Sour taste, with some honey and vanilla. Once in a lifetime...
