solidfunk (3886) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Smells a little like cider. Aromas of brett and wild yeast. A little tinge of barrel. This beer is more like a saison than a dubbel for me. A little off-style. Pours clodudy mahogany. Pretty high carbonation but no head or lacing. On tap at Coles.

mike_77 (3037) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2012
Dark red brown colour. Some acidic wine tones in aroma and flavour. Well rounded and smooth red wine fruitiness but is a touch too sharp for a Dubbel.

swoopjones (5725) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Draft at coles and blue monk. Raisiny colored pour. Dark fruits, raisins, red wine, bourbon. Bourbon notes on top of raisins and dark fruits figs etc. sort of muddled. Decent

djd07 (3480) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2012
On tap at Petrol Station. Pours a cloudy copper with small off white head that quickly diminishes to nothing. The aroma is sour fruit and oak. Thin mouthfeel with a light tart and fruit with light sour finish. Easy to drink a very good dubbel from Sierra Nevada.

jsmerig (1233) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Pours a clear brown with a thick tan head. Sweet aroma of dark grapes and malt. Taste of tart grapes with a smokey currant finish. Dry and crisp in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(Draught) clearish rich amber/copper, wispy offwhite bubbles. Nose of tea, cherry, pipe tobacco, light barrel flavor. Taste is lightly tart, tea, juicy dark fruits, some odd flavors in this one. Herbal, dark fruits, sweet.

Tap at common table. Deep brown with a cream head. Nose is tart, lightly acidic, wood, and faint alcohol. Nice palate, wood, brandy, cherries, acidic, and a smooth finish.

phaleslu (6397) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Draft at Tony’s Darts Away. Pours a hazed plum-amber color with a finger of khaki head. The aroma is slightly sour, with a hint of vinegar on top of major vinous notes, oak, sweet malts, and berries. The flavor has sweet and tart grapes but leans sweeter and maltier. I didn’t get any of the peppery notes I got in the regular version. Medium-bodied, with a malty, vinous mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Neat beer but I prefer the regular one by an edge.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4909) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a dark nut brown color with a plum tinge and a medium sized foamy tan head that left no lacing. The aroma was dry, bitter and vinegary with a cherry undertone. The flavor was dry and bitter and had a woody bite like Canadian whiskey followed by a vinegar presence and notes of cherry and berry. Long bitter vinegar, oak and cherry finish. Medium body. Odd but interesting.

GT2 (8364) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Tap at Carrboro Beverage Co. Pours a clear amber. Weak head. Funky red wine nose with Flemish Red character. Woody, salty, light acetic. Taste is oily, buttery, minerally, sweet cherries, paper. Muted tartness. Not bad. Not a full sour like the nose hints at. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
