COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

50cl can @ Tipu. Messy orangey brown, small lightly tanned head. Nose is coarse molasses, limey dishwashing liquid, solvents and tequila. Flavor is very sweet, some alcohol, glue, lime and darker candi sugar earhy peppery spices, pretty all over. Booze shines through. Nearly medium bodied, soft neutral carbonation. Off-flavors come through when this warm, and I can’t see that lime blending in too well with the candi sugar.

Can. Maple syrup hue; frothy cream-colored head. Aroma is heavy with raisin pulp, followed by dashes of brown sugar and tangy teriyaki. The front of the flavor has the impression of a fairly standard dubbel spiked with lime--citric tang grips the sides of the tongue. This drops off dramatically at the swallow, and you’re left with a malty character and notes of maple, brown sugar and figs. Alcohol is noticeably chest-warming but doesn’t overpower the flavor. Not bad, but certainly a little odd.

Poured from keg at Junkyard, half-pint shared with Finn. Red-brown coloured body. Bare naked surface. Smell of black currant and caramel. Berries flavours added by spices and honeyed caramel. Well bodied with warmth from the alcohol. Heavy stuff, nice sipper (Saturday pub crawl in Nottingham 20.02.2016).

Fra fat på Junkyard i Nottingham 20 Feb 16. Delt med Rune. Dyp amber. 0 skum. God aroma av svisker. Søt plommesmak. Luftig. Lite variasjon. Vel mye kullsyre. Lett sherrypreg.

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.

gegwilson (2864) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2015
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.

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.

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.
