SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - APR 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours a cloudy light golden copper color with a small white head. Nose is peppery, some light candy notes, peppercorns. Palate is strong and in your face with a big bite, full mouth, sticky coated tongue and light pepper burn. Flavors of pepper, clove, light grassy hops, biscuits.

RickTStiles (734) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 23, 2012
pours dark reddish brown with a very thin white head. aroma is sweet and syrupy with notes of yeast, spices, cherries, grape, and violets. a juicy beer with a sweet stickiness. taste is a bit hoppy with notes of lavender, yeast and grapejuice. finish is sweet with a slight alcohol burn. not bad but not particularly memorable.

On cask at Maxs in Fells Point, Baltimore, Maryland. Tried this on cask instead of the Plank II they had going as part of a promotional night, being that Id had the Plan II at a different promo night at Alewife a couple weeks back (its good!). The ale was striking from the start with a bright copper, almost orange color when viewed while back-lit by sunshine/light. Found Dubbel Cannon to be exceedingly pleasant to drink, with a perfect marriage of hoppiness and maltiness, and as good a cask ale as Ive had this side of the big drink (Atlantic Ocean)!

Decent beer from Heavy Seas, the Hop3 IPA is a lot better in my opinion. This beer is much sweeter and less flavors of spices than I imagined. Not very similar to a Belgian brew. To me the best description of this is a German Wit beer of 1/4 of the beer and a mildly hoppy IPA for the other 3/4 of the beer combined. Taste of bananas and fruits is prevalent which give it that wit feeling, bit of hops but not a ton. Surprised it is 7.25 ABV with its taste. Good hearty ABV for someone who doesnt like bitter hops and prefers a more sweet flavor for their strong beers.

12oz bottle. Aroma of peach juice and white pepper. Dark copper color. Thin white head. Nice lace. Creamy texture. Fine carbonation. Flavor is a touch of fruitiness, floral hops, deep caramel malts. Finishes with a citrus hop bitterness and more fruit. Very unique. If I bought a 6pk of this, instead of the single I picked up, Id be a bit happier.

tia (878) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2012
Bottle. Light brown with big foamy head. Smells of brown sugar and spice. Meg-just ok. The flavors dont seem to meld together right. Kind of elusively nothing.

Coppery amber in color with an off-white head. Hoppy aroma. Somewhat sweet, floral, bitter, with a hint of sourness from the belgian yeast. Interesting.
