2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not much head on the pour. Brown / amber. Aroma is light and fruity. Flavor seems a bit off with its shot at semi-sweet dark fruits, and the palate finishes out very watery. Disappointing.

Ar: Brown sugar, faint coffee - some toasted malt and melon.
Ap: Cloudy amber-brown - medium beige head with low-moderate retention, leaves a ring of foam and thin cap.
T: Sweet caramel and whole grain bread - peach and toffee - low bitterness with slight mossy flavor - quick finish, dark sugars.
P: Medium body with high carbonation - finish is dry.
O: Easy-drinking dubbed - sweetness and dark sugar flavors are nice, but fruitiness is lacking.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled) Deep, dark blood red with a medium, firm and lacy head. Aroma reminds me of Regal Xmas without the spices (the caramely malt and house yeast), but there’s clearly some orange peel. Flavor is sweetish-caramely and orange-fruity - again quite like Regal. Medium+ body with quite high and foamy CO2. A well-made, basic dubbel with the Bocq house flavor dominating. 4236
