Golden orange, slightly hazy color, elegant little carbonation. Aroma is mostly toffee. Flavor is interesting. Tastes a bit green. Dry flavor. A pleasure like most Belgian ales.

Donít really see why this beer is rated so low on this website. I thought it was quite nice. Decent, quite heavy, taste and smell. Great mouthfeel, with not too much co2 bubbles and a nice, lasting full body.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2005
(Bottle 30 cl) Beautiful golden amber, creamy off-white head leaving a fine lacework. Typical spicy, yeasty ale-nose. Pronounced yeastiness in the flavours also, with dry caramel notes. Rather light body and some alcohol in the finish. Spiced with honey and vanilla. Excellent. 200705

Bottle into tulip, ít Arendsnest, Amsterdam (3/2008). Almost clear glowing copper with a bacterial-looking dusting of head in an Orval-like glass. Orval-like texture and slightly citrus fruit makes me wonder if this is a clone attempt. It doesnít have Orvalís spiciness or hops, or wonderfully light and balanced malt profile. Nice and juicy with somewhat dry dark figs in the middle. Smells of gentle spices, sweetness, and an accent of piney sharpness. Solid. Iím surprised it isnít rated more highly than a 2.93.

Orang-amber, very slight haze; heavily carbonated to orange tinted, dense head, some little lace. Very much cookie malt, and orange zeste, fruity and faint peppery. Sweet and fruity taste, alcoholic - much more than 6.5% ABV would lead one to expect - even liqueurish. Again spicey, but I cannot identify vanilla. OTOH, honey is quite plausible, albeit more outfermented than usual with honeybeers. Medium bodied, alcoholburn, dry in the finish. Honey flavour finally emerges warming up, at the end of the bottle. Only the MF gives away that this is not really a big beer. It has some characteristics of one, all the same.

Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - JAN 21, 2011
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.

Benzai (14282) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle @ Cafe Buitenlust, Oirschot. Decent beer though not much to tell about it. Copper color, low carbo and body. Nothing really special, nothing really wrong, just decent.
