3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a translucent copper color with a big foamy white head that has good retention. The aroma is characterized by classic Belgian yeasts, coriander and floral hops. The taste is that of a Belgian style dubbel first and foremost--there is coriander, yeast, biscuit, mango, papaya and musty oranges. The palate is silky smooth with soft carbonation. The finish is medium in duration and dry with an odd spicy aftertaste. Overall: More of the character of a Belgian dubbel than that of a DIPA. Tasty, but a bit experimental.
