UPDATED: MAY 17, 2005 2004 draught (Framingham) To my surprise when I ordered this, they presented a light rosy peach-soft amber colored beer with a small fleeting white head. Hmmm. Aroma was light, fruity (orange, melon, peaches, mangos, tangerines) and had some honey sweetness with apparent light belgian yeast. Flavor, though not what I think of for an Abbey Dubbel, was very good. Honey, peaches, apricots, fluffy sweet yeast, and lots of bubble gum esters. Hints of a touch of clove and cinnamon, but this is dominated by the lightly fruity, bubblegummy esters. Medium body which didnt thin out. This one is really just a belgian amber with some light wit bier suggestions. I dont think they tried to brew a dubbel.

Very watery body, but it tried to get the dubbel spices right. It's too bad. Too malty and sweet for my taste. Dark reddish brown body with a quickly fading head.

Minimal head atop clear dark amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, spicy orange. Taste is much the same, but it seems to be missing something. Medium body.
