UPDATED: JAN 12, 2013 Another brew from the always excellent St. Bernardus brewy. Pours somewhat brown but not dark brown with a nice and soft off-white head. Aroma is really subtle with a little nuts (WTF?) and bready notes. First sip is ridden with a not so pleasant metallic aftertaste. Blech. Once you overcome that and continue to drink on it is a pretty light brew that is nice to drink but not complex. Mouthfeel is really nice tho, fluffy and light. It is nice and malty with not much hops to speak of. Overall I’d say that this is the one I enjoyed the least from their range but it is still quite good for what it is!

Pours a murky chestnut brown with fluffy off-white head that reduces quickly to a thin skim. Nose is sweet malt with prominent cola note combined with fruitiness, not so much a cherry coke as a raisin coke. That follows on the palate, along with nut and honey flavors. There’s a pronounced spritz and a full, somewhat slick mouthfeel, with slight bitterness on the finish. Not as complex as some of its siblings, but a fine drink.

Cloudy dark amber brown colour, small white head. Aroma of dried fruits and spices, hint of wine. Dry and lightly sweet taste has same notes plus caramel malt and hops in dry finish and aftertaste. Medium body and fizzy carbonation. Interesting dubbel, unusually dry.

BadAprilia1000 (374) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Pours a nice dark brown color with a few floaties in it with a good head. Aroma is malty, nutty, toffee, figs, vinous cherry, almonds, toasty. Taste is aggressive malt, nuts, and figs with a background of toffee and toasted almonds. Very good dubbel, very carbonated on the mouthfeel as well for a 6.7% beer, definitely a solid example of the style.

Aroma is toasted malt, caramel and sweet. The taste is somewhat crisp and bitter, the alcohol does show. Nice colour with a decent head. Its a good beer overall.

Taste- vinous, cherry sweetness, sugary raisin, hint of banana,nutty and slightly bittersweet finish. Fluffy mouthfeel. Nice stuff.
