3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle; BB 25/04/2017. Pours brownish amber-orange with a ruby shade; the head is light beige, not too huge, retaining nicely, leaving some lace. The aroma is beautiful... delicately, but decidedly sweet, with quite a lot of (red and white) berry bitterness. Jammy sweet as it warms. Strawberry jam. Dried mulberries. Tastes... hmm, a curious mix of caramel(ised sugar), roasted malts, whitecurrants - sweetish upfront with a bitter kick following. The relatively high 8.5% is somewhat detectable, but definitely not in first row. Very thin, but aggressive-active carbonation (would almost rate the palate 2/5). A very distinctive Dubbel - I guess I’d recognize this from among tens of others. Falls short of ’great’ but it’s better than most Dubbels I’ve had.
