3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle at home into a tulip. Pours a clear, deep red-brown colour with a white head. Malt-driven aroma of caramel and roasted barley with some fruit. Initial taste of sweet malt, followed by a light bitterness. Nice mouthfeel: plain and with a good dryness that leads to another sip. Almost earthy in character, this is a fine beer and at a nice drinking strength.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Classic dubbel, launched in the fifties for a festivity in the village of Sint-Lievens-Esse which is held only once every 50 years. Tasted often from bottle and tap, this is a hazy bronze coloured ale with light beige, medium thick head and a soft, creamy, almost buttery texture, malt sweet, very caramelly with a light sourishness, bready and a tad chocolatey, dried fruits, somewhat metallic, nutty, yeasty, soft herbal hoppiness in the finish without ’true’ bitterness. Your average, ordinary dubbel I suppose, nothing exceptional, just simple old school decency.
