3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, gift from my mother (fascinating to see she knows exactly which beers i haven’t had before). Dark brown colored, lasting brown head. Malty nose, toffee, molasses, iron. Initially sweet flavor, some iron again, then finally some roasted malts shining through (a bit like Westmalle dubbel), perhaps far in the distance even some Flemish sour features. Somewhat bitter finish. A bit heavy for a dubbel. A nice, but non-spectacular Belgian dubbel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Authentic abbey beer with bronze colour and light beige head. Fruity and caramelly sweet profile, yeasty, medium hop bitterishness. Like the other Sint-Idesbalds: true to the style and not bad.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 ml bottle. Very dark amber, pretty clear, with a huge and bubbly off white head which dissipated rather quickly. On the nose dark fruits, burnt caramel, mild milk chocolate, light herbs/spices, some alchool notes. Well, I’m not surprised, but that’s 4 out of 4 way too over carbonated St, Idesbald beers. Slightly sour, quite sweet and malty. Some brown sugar and light chocolate in the aftertaste. Lively to fizzy carbonation, light to medium body, oily texture. Not entirely bad after 15-20 minutes in the glass, as the fizziness become way lower.

Non mi aspettavo molto, ed invece la nostra si rivela particolarmente bevibile. Aspetto, naso e sapore tutto nella norma dello stile.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
(St. Idesbald Dubbel) Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 8%
Brown colour on the body with deep ruby shades when hold against the light. Tall and thin beige head, with okay retention, leaving spots of lacing on the glass.
Aroma of caramel, dark fruits, chocolate, sour touches.
Very sour taste, I think something is wrong here. Sour grapes, hints f chocolate.
Medium body, very high carbonation.
Not a good one, totally not what I expected from a dubbel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Anche questa presa al discount. Versa marrone scuro, con spumosa e poco durevole schiuma beige. Aroma di pane,lievito,caramello,cioccolata e frutta secca.Non esageratamente carbonata come la Triple, ma se vogliamo più alcoolica(forse troppo, ma con Huyghe sembra essere la loro cifra!!!). In bocca è un pò acida,con caramello, liquirizia e frutti di bosco in sottofondo. Finale fruttato e un pò acido(ancora!) con liquirizia e spezia.
Accettabile,anche se un pò troppo alcool.
