via trade with Beer_Hawk - Pours a hazy brown color with a big off white head that lasts. Has a spicey, fruity aroma. The flavor is fruity and tad bit tart. Not much yeast in this one, which is nice. Medium to full body. I’m sorry. As hard as I may try, I can not get into these Belgium beers. Just too fruity. Worth a try though. Thanks Steve.

A deep brown color, this had a great fruity aroma. This dubbel had a nice thick mouthfeel. The flaor was mostly malty, with hints along the way of fruity sweetness, yeast, hops, and some peppery spice.

11.2 oz. bottle poured into a Duvel glass. Dark brown color with some mild red hues, foamy tan head that quickly became just a white film. Yeasty with a hint of alcohol, some fruity flavors and good carbonation. Silky mouthfeelwith a slight bitter finish. Not my favorite style, but who can pass up a good Belgian? I liked it enough to try the trippel.

Dark brown, almost black colour, with a large brownish-beige head, which took a while to fade and laced well. Apple and some sour yeast in the nose. Some alcohol in the nose, not too bad. Taste isn’t as much as you’d expect. Malty, maybe some berries there, caramel. Dry run-off, simple finish, no real surpises. Still, pleasure to drink
