COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brassée avec du miel abitibien, cette bière maltée présente un goût de caramel qui se poursuit sur un bouquet d’arômes provenant des houblons européens sélectionnés spécialement pour leurs propriétés nobles et odorantes. Son alcool enrobe les arômes, puis réchauffe la gorge. Inspirée du style belges (sic), la Hurlevent est très douce et agréable en bouche.

Yeasty aroma. Light brown and lacy. A little astringent and dry. SO-so drinkability.Thanks Josh L.

My Bottom Line :
Highly mineral and yeasty, this Dubbel is still able to bring forth raisin-y hints and clove-like spiciness to spruce up an otherwise unpolished flavor profile.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A very cloudy purplish brown is topped by a slice of foam.
-There was way too much yeast in this bottle. Or, at the very least, flocculation was poor and obfuscated the flavor profile.
-Honey is suggested in the finish, but it may not be because of the actual honey that was added. Residual sugars are also higher than average for the style.
-Whatever the problem was, this bottle lacked the polish of a good Belgian Dubbel.

Bottle.

Muddy brown pour wearing a small beige foam, perhaps not the best-looking ale. Fruit-forward dubbel with less roast/chocolate than most, but more caramel/honeyed flavours and a fair dose of toasted breadiness. The fruitiness is rather impressive, feeling fresh and jammy/jelly like, including mostly dark fruits like grapes, plums and figs, delivering them in a concentrated texture with plenty of honeyed residual sugars. While the hops are used parcimoniously, they still add a pleasant herbal kick, akin to clover or orange tea in the otherwise honeyed, sweet kiss finish. Purists will probably not appreciate the low attenuation and variable carbonation, starting biting and with small bubbles, but fading out as it spends quite a few minutes in the glass. Again, this is pretty solid stuff from Trèfle Noir: an original take on a classic style, integrating its ingredients quite obviously, but not at the expense of balance. For the sweet tooth,at a reasonable price of 4,5 bucks a 500 ml, that’s a pretty sweet deal.

TaktikMTL (5546) - Montréal-Nord, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2013
Bouteille de 500 ml achetée chez La Barik (Trois-Rivières, QC). Arôme: Odeur de caramel avec une pointe fruitée. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée foncée avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un moyen col mousseux et d’une large dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de caramel avec une pointe d’agrumes et de sucre. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement minérale. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de caramel en arrière goût. (Rating #4554)

Boutip (4494) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 21, 2013
Bottle: Poured a light amber color ale with a large foamy head with medium retention and some light lacing. Aroma of honey and residual sugar is not as dominant as I would have expected and there is a lack of ester that I would have expected in this beer. Taste is also dominated by light caramelized malt with clear notes of honey and light residual sugar with cereal notes also apparent. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Definitely sub-par compare to other offering form this brewery and this confirms that I prefer dubbel with candi sugar and more dominant esters.

gusher - again, 3 out of 3 brews from them. pours hazy, almost cloudy light brown-golden orange with a towering off-white head, good retention. metallic, co2, spices, some caramel and dark fruits, spicy hops, some sweetness - a tad too much. bubbly - not aggressive, medium body, decent grassy-peppery-spicy finish. meh.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2012
Cloudy orangey amber color with a medium to thick beige head. Interesting aroma of fruits, caramel and toasted malt. Good flavor of fruits (raisins), caramel and toasted malt. The sweetness is moderate. The body is medium with a vinous texture and moderate carbonation. Interesting.

solidfunk (3007) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Strong taste of maple honey here. Syrupy texture. Pours maroon without head or lacing. Light carbonation, sweet finish. A little messy. Booze quite prominent. Bottle from Delires du Terroir.

rodenbach99 (2968) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 21, 2012
Bouteille de 500ml. embouteillée le 10 septembre 2012 autant dire qu’elle est fraiche. Bière cuivrée avec une belle mousse beige crémeuse. Le nez est de fruits secs, de chocolat et d’épices. La bouche est crémeuse au début, ensuite l’alcool apparait. La finale est sur la levure et l’alcool. Pas mauvais mais rien d’exceptionnel non plus. 6/10

robinvboyer (2878) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2010
dark brown/ruby pour, very small off white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malts, brown sugar, candi sugar, and ripe fruits such as figs, and pears. THe flavor was well balanced, and very very nice. More of that wonderful sweet malts in the finish, trailed by a semi dry bitterness. Excellent dubbel!
