Pint at the Brewpub. Pours a cloudy red with a permanent fluffy white head. The aroma is grainy and fruity with notes of berries, licorice and banana. The palate is creamy. The beer has a more bitter flavor than I first expected, which fades to juicy berry complexity. Esters dominate in the way of banana and cloves, but the overall experience is less intense than a typical dubbel so it never gets overwhelming. The palate is certainly lighter for the style but the beer doesn’t necessarily skimp on flavor. Not half bad.
on tap-pours a light tan head and copper color. Aroma is sweet medium malt, fruit, slight sharp. Taste is medium malt-toffee, fruit-raisin, slight sharp/spice hops.

Appearance: clear dark ruby red, lots of bubbles stuck to the side of the glass, creamy beige head, drippy lace
Aroma: light dry malt aroma
Flavor: caramel malt flavor, light estery sweetness is balanced by an earthy spicyness leaving it mostly dry
Overall: too dry for me, bring on the fruity esters!

Thanks to Justin for bringing us a sample down to woody’s! Clear dark amber brown pour with ring of light tan head. Aroma is sweet malt, belgian yeast, and hints of cherries. Flavor is about the same. Certainly a bit of alcohol on this one, I’d suspect this might be pushing the ’low alc’ TN laws to the limit. Considerably better as it warms. allfreej (556) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 15, 2009
On tap at Blackstone’s, Nashville. Reddish-copper pour, tan head. Decent lace. Poured too cold and had to let it sit for awhile to bring out the nose and flavor. Lively mouthfeel, spicy, candy notes, alcohol hint. Cherry notes came out as the beer warmed. Dry finish. Decent.
