3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Strong yeasty nose with some corriander and a little dust. Hazy gold and a fluffy head. Sweetish malt front with some candi-sugar. Tight peppery end - very spicy all around. Medium body, decent balance. Whiff of alcohol at the end too.

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Vintage 2001) Thin light tan head which reduces quickly. Great complex aroma of grapes, plums, raisins, brown sugar, port wine and a but of roastyness. Color is a slightly murky dark brown. Flavor is not what I expected. Bit sour with roasted grains, smoke, more grapes and a bit of spicyness. Finish is spicy with a bit of alcohol presence and a lingering taste of smoke and roasted grains. A very good dubbel but I think that it has soured a little over time.

Poured and got little head. Nice dark red color. Tastes very sweet, more like a wine. Has minor the complexity of the dubbel style. Not bad but I'd pass next time round.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aged one year: Pours with very little carbonation. Clear crimson liquid. Unorthodox Belgian aroma of shiny leather, estery malts, uncooked mushroom, caramel, lemon, goat cheese, vanilla, and a dash of black cherry. Begins with sour, medicinal flavors, reminscent of spoiled plums,goat cheese, and some wet wood. Very simplistic. Its only prayer is the long nutty malt backdrop. Either aging has badly affected this, or it is a run of the mill Dubbel. I was expecting great things from this.

I prefer this to their trippel, it is much more deep in malt character and balanced with just the right amount of hop bitterness

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2003 This beer rocks. Weyerbacher Brewing Co. is the best thing that ever happened to Easton... with the possible exception of Sheena.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy dark amber/ruby with a thin off white edge head. Very light carbonation. Oak and grape aroma with notes of caramel and light sourness. Initially woody and lightly sour with a light body and grape/wine aspect. If you’re expecting a dark Belgian Dubbel forget it, but this is a superb surprise. Body turns airy and lightly tart and oaky sour. Earthy though and not Lambic sour. Black cherry skin fruitiness and trademark yeast bite towards the finish which ends as it begins. An intriguing brew that demands your full attention. Another winner.
