Perhaps a touch on the pale side for a dubbel, but a nice combination of malty sweetness and that classic Belgian yeast thing. Easy to drink and tasty to boot. A tasty drop.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Chimay Goblet. Pours from the bottle a nice copper orange color, light to no white head formation. Aromas of fruit and slight hops. Flavors of sweet malt and caramel, with the malty flavor intensifying upon swallowing. No lacing at all throughout. Overall this was a nice beer that was not only easy to drink, but also had a pleasant flavor. It kind of reminded me of a Hefe in a weird way...

12 oz bottle. Pours a deep red color with a thin off-white head. The aroman is sweet with some fruit and floral notes. Sweet malty flavor with a touch of spice that seems common in Belgian beers that I have tried. Pretty decent overall but the style is not my favorite. A good change of pace beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Almost like a cream soda! Aroma of vanilla and raisin. Flavor is heavy on the vanilla and dark fruit. Color is amber with quickly dissipating head. Palate is kinda like cream soda. Very nice beer!

I probably overrate Highland beers a little. This beer is not a dubbel. Its a Belgian ale IMHO. This beer is VERY VERY similar to De Koninck.
poor a bottle into a Bolleke,,,,close your eyes ....and it will bring you back to drinking beer at the finer bars in Antwerp
fresh and cheap...the perfect USA version of de konnick
