Maybe it’s not one of the "snob appeal" Belgian beers, but I truly enjoyed it.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mild Belgian aroma. Fizzy, medium palate with long pecan-bitter finish. Smooth and mostly balanced flavor, leaning off towards bitter. Clear medium brown, with lacy whitish head. Good bottle and logo, awkward label overall though.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium copper color, more like a cherry red. Slightly sweet and fruity. Slight malt flavors, but mostly tart and light. Unfortunately thin. Fairly average.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Transparent copper appearance, light head. Sweet malt, caramel and a faint touch of smoke poking through. The body is spritzy with a touch of hops, iron notes and somewhat organic finish. Not much going on for a (dubbel?) Not a good example.

Explain to me again why this isn’t bottle conditioned? Pours bright copper - yikes! Caramel, earth...really simple malt profile. Little bit of vanilla, plastic, vaguely chewy finish. Empty.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Medium-to-dark amber, fluffy off-white head, lots of rising carbonation, malty nose. Metallic start, very dry for the style, hardly any finish. I get a hint of the asparagas notes that jayme_9874 mentioned.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
good spicey caramel malt nose with lots of yeast. deep copper in color. overall pretty weak. grabbing bitterness. uninteresting, flavors all seem to blend together, nothing stands out. Midi at best
