COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Be wary of Starr’s smile, there is something sinister behind her innocent look. Belle Starr is a Belgian-style Dubbel brewed with a rare Belgian yeast strain, caramelized beet sugar and festive holiday spices. Expect hints of dark fruit, sweet cinnamon-apple and a warming finish. ABV is 7.7%

Bottle shared by jmborggren in 2012. Pours a deep amber/brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel, Belgian yeast, dark fruits, raisins, brown sugar, some holiday spiciness, cinnamon, nutmeg with very little bitterness. A touch thin.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Bottle. Pours light brown with a light foamy beige head. Nose of caramel, yeast, copper, and clove. Other spices I can’t nail down that offer nothing. Taste is sweet with some spice. Light for a dubbel.

Tmoney99 (10459) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Bottle shared by jmborggren. Poured dark brown color with medium off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy toasted malt, raisin, yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy dark fruit sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid brew.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Bottle:   Deep caramel, moderate frothy sandy head, light lacing.   Lightly spiced nose, even lighter breadiness and dark pitted fruit.   Assertive nutmeg/cinnamon up front.   Seems to dominate over the bready/dark pitted fruit nature of a Dubbel.   Somewhat reminds me of a Pumpkin Ale, with a bit of a bready/dark pitted fruit flair.   Not terribly big or thick, body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes quick, clean, with lingering spiciness.   Not your traditional Abbey Dubbel, not musty or barnish, not heavy on the breadiness or dark pitted fruit, but more so spiced up with cinnamon and nutmeg.   Tiz entertaining, but almost should be reclassified in my opinion.   Thanks to drfabulous for the bottle!

Bomber to taster (thanks jmborggren). Looks solid; a semi-transparent brown with off-white lacing. Smells solid too; sweet, caramel, and Belgian yeast. Tastes like it smells, but heavily spiced. Average on the palate. A decent Dubbel.

drfabulous (3848) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - SEP 13, 2012
22 ounce from Bruisin Ales. 2011 bottle. Aroma is seasonal: cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin like spices. Slightly malty body with some caramel and slight sweetness. Some plum and dried fruit. Interesting beer and very different from traditional dubbel.

Cybercat (3225) - Georgia, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Aroma is fruity and malty with subtle hints of cinnamon and miso. It pours a barely translucent dark mahogany with a rather typical pale tan head that leaves substantial lacing. Flavor has fruity - apple plus a hint of cherry - and malty tones plus hints of horehound and caramel. Texture is smooth and firm with a little fizz but plenty of body. Load up for this one!

10oz at brewery. Good aroma, sweet. Malty with a yeasty streak, caramel, brown sugar, little fruitiness. little bubblegum. Brown color, small head and lace. Sweet flavor. Lite body, smooth creamy mouthfeel. Dry finish. Tasty. Bounces around with Malts and yeast... Better as I have more... D’uh ..more solid offerings from Lonerider.

I enjoy this beer very much. I am glad I able to get this beer in my area. It has a lot of flavor going on. Caramel, cinnamon, and other spices. I hope this beer gets more people talking about LoneRider, I believe this is one of their best.

Dark amber/brown pour with medium white head. Aroma of Christmas spices, some raisins, maybe brown sugar. Flavor had a hint of citrus bitterness but more caramel in the finish. Not bad seasonal.
