3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A decent Dubbel overall. Pours a clearish red with a white head. Smells of Apple and pear. More apple and pair in the taste, with a bit of an empty finish. Tasted at the Black and White Beer Ball for SF Beer Week.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Redwood Curtain Brewing, pours a murky dark orangey amber with a medium beige head. Aroma brings out Belgian yeast, dry dark fruits, and some sweet caramely notes. Flavour brings out lots of Belgian yeast, toasted malt, toffee and toasted bread. A little sweeter than a traditional dubbel, but still pretty true to style. Well-balanced and drinkable. Good one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at The Local Beer Bar in Eureka, CA. This came in the glass a rich dark brown with red around the edges, with a good sized tan head and thick lacing. Nose of ripe fruit. Medium plus body with a smooth creamy mouthfeel. The flavors are sweet and malty and the finish is long and sweet with a lightly bitter aftertaste. A solid version of the style, and as it warmed became very nice drinking.
