Hamirubi (295) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 2, 2015
33cl bottle at home. A mild, even light and good to drink Belgian dubbel. It is a bit of a minor beer in the St. Bernardus series. Yet as a dubbel, a very lovely drink with well balanced sweet bitterness flavours - and of course with the so typical chestnut scents and brown sugar notes.

Butelka, warka do 08-04-16. Bardzo bujna, wysoka, ladna i dosc powoli opadajaca piana, lekko kremowa. samo piwo miedziano-brazowe, lekko metne. Aromaty ciemnych owocow, w tym glownie suszonych (rodzynki), slodowe, lekka przyprawowosc, troche alkoholu, troche karmelu Jednym slowem: dublowo ;) w smaku wiekszosc nut z aromatu jest odczuwalnych (moze poza przyprawami), lekko w slodka strone w miodowy sposob, z deikatnym szczypaniem nieniskiego wysycenia.goryczki wlasciwie brak, jednak "w zamian" czuc troche alkoholu - w nieirytujacy sposob. Niemalo ciala. Bardzo gladkie, kremowe w odczuciu. wyjatkowo "lekkie" w piciu. bardzo dobre piwo, najwyzsza polka dubbli. z 8mka z tego browaru przegrywa w kategorii intensywnosci, zwlaszcza owocowej, ale wygrywa wlasnie ta lekkoscia, pijalnoscia.

Update a propos food-pairing - zupelnie nie pasuje do camamberta - w polaczeniu z nim staje sie kwasne :)

Nez sur le pain de segle, corps moyen, amertume présente, on sent bien le sucre candi, une belge qui a du charme!

330 mL bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA. Murky brown pour with a foamy off-white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast and light cola. Nice flavor of dark fruit, candi sugar, and light chocolate. A very easy to drink Belgian dubbel.

The bottle may look a little childish, but the beer inside is definitely not!
