3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Solid and simple but unremarkable in any way. Light malt aroma. Medium sweet flavor with a hint of fruit. It does have a good palate but lacks complexity and character.

Dark brown colored, slight red hints. Little light brown head. Sweet aroma with chocolate and caramel. Medium bodied. Flavor is not as rich as aroma: malty and sweet with carbonated palate, maybe slight chocolate also comes up.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of caramel malts, raisin and dark fruits. Clear, brown coloured with a frothy brown head. Taste is quite sweet/sugarry. Somewhat aromatic. Fruity, caramel malts, anise. Not a bad brew, but lacking balance and it has too much sweetness.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.33 l bottle. Dark mahagony color with persistent head. Sweet aroma with dark fruits, licorice, anise, cardboard and rotten egg. Sweet and spicy flavor with clove and dark fruits. Unpleasantly sugary and resembling soft drink. No balance. Seems like Riva is exploiting the Liefmans brand.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Beautiful, clear, reddish brown with a dense, beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and dried fruits. Medium body with sweet, roasted malt and some vinous notes with dried fruit. A light, metallic edge. Very soft finish with a rather subdued bitterness. But a harmonious and not overly sweet Dubbel. 211106
