This is a Belgian-style double brewed with a traditional coriander, and an uncommon addition of kaffir lime and lemongrass. An amber body, rich, flavorful, absolutely delicious, and entirely too drinkable for a beer that’s 8.5% ABV.

Had on tap at 99 bottles, santa cruz. Pours golden with thin head. Aroma is sweet and malty. Flavor is way too sweet and tons of alcohol. Pretty much just awful. Only drank half my glass.

On can at Sandar Bryghus. Deep golden color- good foam. Medium aroma intensity; fruity, light honey, floral and light hops. Medium body & complexity. Some immediate sweetness- ok balance. Enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cannette. Bière d’un rouge profond parfaitement translucide et surmontée d’un mince anneau blanc sale. Aucune effervescence du fond de mon verre. Peu de signes de vie dans mon verre. Arômes végétales d’aloès, de gazon et de fleurs. Peu de houblons ont survécu à l’ajout des ingrédients qui composent ce bouquet vert qui me rappelle certains thés ou tisanes. Goût de savon et/ou de shampoing, de lavande et d’eucalyptus. L’attaque est puissante et très herbacée. L’alcool n’est pas très bien dissimulé. Pas mauvais mais loin d’être bien bon.

Can from the Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Pours cloudy brown with a beige head. The taste is sweet yet sharp. Lime and corriander are particularly evident. An nteresting beer with plenty of flavours going on, but it’s not one I’d be in a rush to try again. The flavour is perhaps a little harsh.

Fresh can drunk Summer 2012
I hate traditionalists, and I love experimentation, but....but....kaffir lime....in a Belgian Dubbel?????Yes, they have succeeded in being uncommon. Congratulations. Pushing the envelope is great. Throwing a bunch of random shit against the wall to see what sticks in a whole nother thing. This did not stick. Sweet (too much so) with more of an underfermented amber ale flavor than that of a Belgian ale. Lemongrass is overdone, lime is overdone, coriander is overdone. Wow. Fortunately I was given this to try and did not spend money on it. Friend couldnt give the rest of the 4 pack away. Another big yikes. If you’re going to ruin a beer or go over the top, at least make it fun (Crime and Punishment come to mind, maybe some Brew Dog stuff, etc....)

Can from world beers. Pours a dark reddish brown. Very little head. Scent is somewhat fruity. Taste is dark fruits. Finish is a bit sour. Pretty good.

SinH4 (1399) - Garching, GERMANY - APR 11, 2015
Dark brown color with beige head. Aroma of spices and a bit tartness. Taste is fresh and spicy, but dark at the same time. Lemongrass, yes, Kefir - maybe that’s where the tartness comes from. A super-special beer. I like it.
