COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Taking elements from two classic Belgian styles, we’ve crafted a beer that incorporates the best characteristics of both tripels and dubbels. Trubbel boasts the strength and spiciness of a tripel and the rich malt character of a dubbel. We brew this uncommon ale with a classic Belgian yeast strain, dark Belgian candi sugar, and a unique blend of specialty malts, producing subtle biscuit, chocolate, and caramel overtones. Available November through January beginning in even years only.

(Draught, Drafting Room) Pours a murky dark brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of licorice and dark fruits. Flavor of licorice, raisins, cherry, molasses, and a hint of wood and smoke.

Muddy dark brown with medium tan head. Aroma is medium sweet, berry fruity, sour yeasty. Taste is very sour, blueberry, yeasty, light cherry. Full body. Calls itself a cross between a dubbel and trippel, but there's some definite lambic quality to this.

Draft courtesy of Geoff, thanks! Cloudy brown color. Aroma of cocoa. Taste is very sweet chocolate, too sweet for me.

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2003
This beer rocks! Very dark beer with a murky, burnt orange color when held up to bright light. Creamy, well-tanned head with great retention. The nose is awesome; a marriage of styles... abbey, dubbel and lambic-like. Tart cherries, citrus fruit and prune. The flavor is also tart with citrus fruit and very smooth malt. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Lengthy, tart, tangy, astringent finish. World class ale!

750ml bottle. Poured a dark mahogany color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of bananas, dark fruits, all around fruity, and yeast. Tastes of bananas, some bread, dark fruits, and chocolate.

Had this at the HBF. Pours dark brown. Aroma of malt, fruit, peat. Tastes malty, with some fruitiness, earthiness, and sweet caramel flavor at the finish. Nice style.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 23, 2004
Murky brown body with a thin tan head. This is practically more of a Flemish sour ale than a dubbel or trippel. Sweet and tart cherry aroma with some aged oak. Body is dry and sour with some yeasty complexity and a dry finish, which helps to hide the alcohol. A very unique brew, but kinda misclassfied. Thanks to slob for sending me the bottle.

Pours dark brown wit a thin tan head. Smells of sweet malt, light spice. Tastes sweet and cherry like with some spicy hints on the finish.
