COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Weyerbacher Belgian Dubbel is a wonderfully complex abbey-style beer that is sure to satisfy the desires of any aficionado. We brew our Belgian Dubbel with Belgian malts, Belgian candi-sugar, and special Belgian yeast strains and then add French oak chips during fermentation. These premium ingredients combined with our brewers' monk-like patience result in a beer with authentic old-world taste and character.

Very good job by my neighbors to the south of me. does not taste like any other dubbel i have had. tastes more like a good red wine.

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.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - APR 24, 2002
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.

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

Very much in the Belgian red style, with that great sweet and sour combination. Dark ruby red color, firm malty base, and moderate sourness. Fairly intense, but a nice example. If you like the style, you’ll like this one.

Dorwart (2363) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - OCT 22, 2004
(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.

pivo (2547) - GERMANY - DEC 30, 2004
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.

Much Thanks to Dorwart for Sending This Beer. Cloudy Brown with Orange Hues...Sandy Skin. Sweet Syrupy Malt, Sour Fruit, Oak and Astringent Aroma. Heavy Mouthfeel...Sour Fruit/Cherry Notes..Sweet Syrupy Malt, Very Sweet to Balance Out the Sour Fruits...Dry Oaked Flavor..Fair Amount of Heat. Clean Dry Finish. An Interesting Dubbel, to be Sure.
