this would be a very nice thai food beer. one of the more interesting beers of the night. fruity, estery aroma with a hint of earthy grassiness at the end. a touch of lemon in the aroma and flavor which would be a mistake in some beers, but IMO works well here. good body and a hearty malty, yeasty backbone. nice beer."

Keg at The Hanging Bat. Pours brown with a thin off-white head. Aromas are banana, dark sugar, raisins. Taste brings more banana sweetness. Couldn’t finish the other ingredients. Easy drinking for sure though.

I find it interesting that this beer isn’t at 99%. It’s quite delightful and a perfect example of a well done yet unique dubbel. Belgian style dubbels are a hard category to compete in, with fine Trappist ales as the standard, but this brew holds its own for true dubbel connoisseurs.
It’s nicely sweet with floral overtones and a crisp, dry, noble hop finish. Tastes of caramel, raisin, rose and a hint of biscuit. The pour is also nothing to complain about, with a delicate head and deep red hue which is distinctly impenetrable. Something you look for in a good dubbel. The palate is light yet full with a light buttery texture.
I will certainly buy this again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cold can. Pours a dirty dark red / brown, slightly sparkling, small white head doesn’t last. Aroma of sour caramel, cherry cola, clay. Body is medium, slightly foamy, lowish carbonation. Taste - very sweet caramel (oversweet), slight coffee overtones, spearmint, metallic, soft cherry finish. Alright.
