BiereLuc (855) - Montréal, Quebec, - FEB 15, 2013
Yeux : Nettement brune avec des reflets cuivrés alléchants. Une fine mousse teintée crème est amplifiée par une effervescence régulière à petites bulles. Nez : Vapeurs de rousse bien fraîche, comme un complexe inavoué. Le taux d’alcool de cette double typique n’est pas encore révélé. On voudrait présager son goût par ses arômes, mais le secret persiste. Quelques fruits nous viennent en tête, mais en vain… Bouche : Très goûteuse en entrée, la Floreffe révèle son rare taux d’alcool après quelques secondes seulement. Une pincette de cassonade prédomine sur les autres flaveurs. Une amertume soutenable, bien fidèle à la double fermentation, ramène le dégustateur à l’ordre. Gorge : Le doux pétillement s’éteint pour laisser place à un post-goût épicé qui rappelle une bonne Chouffe. Verdict : La Floreffe se laisse boire en douceur. Voilà une brune qui ne fait pas ombrage à la réputation belge. À essayer chambrée, si l’occasion se présente.

reebtogi (4033) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 13, 2014
330ml bottle pours a dark brown amber color with a 2 finger off-white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark fruits and anise. Taste is a dark fruity and malty sweetness with a herbal hop bitterness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A nicely done dubbel that will provide a great tasting experience.

Mainuh_man (37) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2014
Opaque dark brown with an ample off-white head. Really strong, rich and complex aroma. Ripe fruit, anice and butterscotch. Beginning is mildly sweet, giving way to a burnt toffee (candi sugar), bubblegum and mild necco wafer (anice) flavor. Finish is dry yeast and some roasted malt. Medium bodied with sharp feeling, mild carbonation. Overall, a nice, complex dubbel with a really outstanding aroma. Probably one of my favorite dubbels to date.

Nice colour and head, but not that much aroma. Taste is nice but not that special, a but one dimensional.

slawek (90) - Kraków, POLAND - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle. Brown, clear with medium head. Intense aroma, mostly anise and caramel. Medium sweetness, too much anise in flavor. Beer is quite one-dimensional, anise everywhere.
