3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the Straight to Ale Taproom, Huntsville, AL.
Clear mahogany colour with a small off-white head.
The aroma is like mild fruit liqueur... Not bad. The flavour is also a bit like liqueur. Sweet, fruity, a bit boozy and strong. Warming. The aftertaste is also a bit boozy.

On tap. Pours a dark brown with a thin head. Sweet, malty aroma. Taste is fruity and malty and has a thin feel in the mouth. Not much carbonation but the taste was pretty good, though a tad bland for my taste.

Growler purchased from the brewer. Pours an amber brown with very little head, could’ve lost some carbonation in the growler because the pint that i bought had a largewhite head. White lacing around the glass. Very thin mouthfeel. Nose is candied sugar, dried fruits, a little funkiness. Taste is similar. Not my favorite of the style, but a very drinkable Belgian style dubbel.

Looks like a dubbel but doesn’t really taste like one. Still pretty good, though, with a nice sweet/sour balance.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Grassy and spicy aroma with some light sweet malty notes. The flavor has toasted malts and spicy yeast, with some light caramel malty sweetness and light floral notes. Good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
very interesting beer. Tangy, sour orange flavor with a bit of malt. Clear light amber color with a creamy thick head. Not at all what I expected from a dubbel, but very nice.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not a bad beer. Sweet malty with the typical belgium hop. Does have a slight thin feel to the mouth, not typical for a belgium. Enjoyable though I’d get it again.
