3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Caramel and candied sweetness in the aroma. Dark pumpkin orange color with a thin off-white head. Caramel and light molasses in the taste along with a definitely Belgian flavor. There’s a dry spiciness to this similar to a rye beer. Light bodied with a soda like carbonation, but there’s also a creamy texture with a good alcohol warmth. Leaves behind a light milk chocolate flavor and lasting warmth from what at this point seems like more than 7% ABV. Nice, easy drinking dubbel.

On tap. Hazy medium reddish brown with no head. Banana, bubble gum, molasses and caramel aroma and taste with a big bubble gum finish. The date is evident but not as forward as I was expecting. Still overall a good Dubble.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
An color with an off-white head. Heavy bubblegum, candy, sugar, and banana aromas to this. A nice touch of dates, but it could use more. Toasted malt and toffee are also prominent. Tastes fairly sweet, but manages to not be cloying. Lots of bubblegum and banana with a good amount of sugar and dates. A light toasted character to it and a slight yeastiness.

Not your typical Belgium, but quite good. Great deep brown appearance with an off white head. Fruity flavor with a smooth after taste. Hints of banana, dates, and apircot. Truly a great beer. Makes me wish I lived closer to Redlands.
