33 cl. bottle sampled @ De Stroopop in Zoersel. BBF 02/2015. Murky reddish fox brown with almost no tanned head. Nose is slightly tart with plenty of prunes, touch liquorish, berries, syrup, touch molasses, pretty interesting & fine stuff. Taste is slightly tart red berries, syrup, prunes, liquorish, quite a bit of cranberry sauce, fruity, pears, faintly tart in the back. Touch sticky mouthfeel, little carb. Pretty interesting & lovely stuff.

Thick creamy brown. Thick head, lots of small bubbles. I prefer less carbonation. Smooth tasting, nice palette. Better when warmed up, flavor comes out.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
2006 vintage. Thanks to KyotoLefty. Sweet, fruity aroma, with light brown sugar, and slight oxidation. Hazy copper color. Thick sugary sweetness in initial / the fruit has mellowed over time but still has a surprising tang (stewed pears, peaches), which remains even in the finish. Medium body. This has aged incredibly well.

6 year old bottle shared at Tadg’s a cloudy honey brown pour with a boozy honey aroma. Everyone thought honey was in this beer, the taste was an incredibly rich honey caramel, figs, plums, a super smooth wallonian dubbel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear burnt orange colour with a short lived fizzy white head. The aroma candied oranges, mustiness, dark fruit, desk drawer, yeast. The flavour also had the candied oranges which is a underlying sweetness throughout, with some floral and herbal hops ontop, and a dry bitterness in the finish. Solid dubbel for sure.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ De Paas. Pours a semi clear, headless brown beer. Aroma of red fruits, light caramel and slight chocolate. Flavour is medium sweet, fruity and touches of chocolate malts. Not overly impressive, nothing bad about it, nothing extraordinary good either.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ corso ADB 2013. NON E’ UNA DUBBEL!!! ambrata, riflessi marroncini. schiuma beige abbastanza fine ed abbastanza persistente. profumo fruttato dolce, di lievito belga, lieve erbaceo, alcolico. gusto meno complesso dei profumi, dolce, caramellato, di frutta candita. Luppolatura solo accennata. Corposa, poco carbonata, è una birra abbastanza equilibrata e tutto sommato armonica.
