From the tap at the Wedge brew pub. Not as aromatic or full tasting as some dubbels I’ve had, and not quite as spot on for style as the Wedge’s fantastic Golem (tripel), but this nevertheless is quite enjoyable.

Butters (3747) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2009
Pours a dark hazy orange with great tan head. Aroma is sweet, and even some bubblegum. Flavor is a little spicy and yeasty. Velvety body. Not bad at all, I was actually rather impressed with this one.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Tap at Wedge- Nice overall- seemed restrained- I thought it was going to be too fruity or too phenolic, not so. Pours a nice light amber with a thin head. Aroma is nice- biscuit and toasty malts, light honey- very light restrained fruitiness- pear and light raisin, yeasty and doughy but nice. Flavor is yeasty, restrained phenolics- light leather hints, toast, biscuity, light caramel very light fruits, and relatively clean- easy to drink too.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy ruby-brown with a white head. Aroma of sweet malt and light roast. Flavor again of sweet malt and sweet fruits. Only a hint of spices. Pretty chill beer, on the sweet side though. 7/4/7/4/14 [3.6/5]

nickd717 (3480) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 20, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Nice dark fruit aroma with mild Belgian yeast and spices. Great dark fruit based flavor with plum and fig along with caramel and hazelnut. Medium sweetness. Medium-plus body with average carbonation. Pretty nice for what it is.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 1, 2012
Draft at the brewery. Poured a deep coppery golden with a medium-sized off-white head that left some good lacing. Aroma and flavor were cherry, fig, prune, some spicy hops, fairly sweet, a little bit of barnyard, not overly Belgian. Slightly oily, thick mouthfeel.
