Very pleasant with no aftertaste. The beer was almost sweet. The draft beer created a tingly sensation. I’m not a major drink enthusiast but this kind of beer is making me one.

On draught. A nice beer. No aftertaste to this one, just a clean Belgian brew.

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 14, 2007
Dark browin poor with red hues. Healthy frothy head beige head with nice lacing. Aromas of blackberries, prunes, fresh mint leaves and a creamy caramel twist. Slightly bitter but a good fruity, sweet, creamy feel. Good balance and medium bodied. Refreshing taste with hints of pepper, mint... And great water....

frankenkitty (1981) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2007
Beautifully presented in a Leffe snifter (complete with doily), holding a deep mahogany/brown body under a staunch, creamy ecru head. Coffee meets yeasts in the aroma for a pleasant and appropriate mesh of bitters and fruit. Those two sensations are also the dominant flavors providing a wonderfully bittersweet combination. Alcohol joins late, while the palate is full and fluffy, finishing dry.

jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 12, 2007
Deep brown appearance. Taste is smooth, sweet, and blends tastes of chocolate, caramel, and dried fruits. Delicate and smooth - way better than the blond. I like it more than its average portrays.

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2007
330 ml bottle - pours a deep, deep reddish brown with a bubbly off-white head. Aroma slightly musty with some sweet prune and raisin notes as well as some spiciness from the yeast. Sweet, plummy flavour, along with the aforementioned yeast spiciness present. A strangely chalky finish. Not terribly complex. Good beer, not great.

thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - JUL 9, 2007
Pours a brown color with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma is largely fruit, with some raisin notes, as well as candy sugar and malt. Taste is the same and very smooth, if uncomplex. I liked the previous poster calling this an "introduction" to Belgian beer, because this is a solid offering but nothing overly special.

A nice dubbel, kinda like a introduction beer to the belgian style. My dad who only drink Rickard’s actually liked this one. Having it on tap, its nice, but you can tell its a dumbed down version of a dubbel for the mass market. The yeastiness and fruit is held in check. overall though, a decent brew.
