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.

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.

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
