UPDATED: FEB 26, 2003 Deep brown colour. the taste is fruity and a little bit sweet. Not the best brune Belgian beer, but it is always a pleasure to drink!

Let me say right away that I prefer the maltyness of dubbels to the spiciness of tripels (which doniate the market for Belgians in Australia. Thus I jumped at this despite it being from the undistinguished Interbrew Corp. The aroma & flavour were highly malty, so I liked it, even though slightly medicinal. Finish is a little sweet but thatís alright in my book too.

don´t know why it took me so long to taste this. having grown to like leffe blond i hope the same will happen with this. but i found it too brown sugary, a little thin and bland

Dark brown, nice head. Malty and yeasty, long bitter finish. Not very complex but overall a nice dubbel.

krisbierjaeger (844) - dolores, Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2002
a little brown bear of a beer, rich and yeasty, head like a blooming marsh cat-tail. aroma and flavors dovetail: wheat berry nuttiness, sweet, rye and earthy notes of choice honduran tobacco leaf. more swirling and savoring draws likenesses of belgian waffles and plums, light sherry alcohol notes. modest bitterness. i imagine something like a bass triple, or a newcastle eisbock (but then i also occassionally imagine that iím the peruvian secretary of agriculture). mello and tasty.

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2002
Big malt sweetness. You get it in the nose, on the palate. It is smooth, sweet, rich but lacking of any edge. Some beer geeks I know swear by this beer. Iím still looking for the reason why. Though I like this beer I cannot laud it.

Very yummy beer, better out of the tap than out of the bottle. I have a weakness for bruneís and this is as good as any German brune I have tasted
