1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Oosters Singapore on 03/07/15. 33cl bottle (shared), poured into an official St.Bernardus chalice. Light brown in colour with a thin beige coloured head. Medium carbonation. Funky fruity aroma, with malt, dark fruit and spices. Very sour on the palate, although the sourness reduces as the beer warms in the glass. Flavour of raisin, sour plums, malt and molasses. I do have a concern that the sourness was as a result of poor handling in shipping (dates was fine, BBE 2017).

Highly carbonated, and medium-thin body, full mouth feel, warming alcohol finish. Malty, dry fruit/raisin, a hint of banana? A most excellent dubbel.

Nose is sweet, taste is sweet, life is sweet. Nice beer, I just cannot really understand it. It is not so strong but quite full in body. Sweet but not much sourness. I think it´s maybe even too sweet for me which is extraordinary.
