A: The pour is interesting. A light brown color with a purple tinge to it. A small white head is present, but dissipates somewhat quickly.
S: The nose has the usual yeasty and spicy Belgian yeast character with a slight tartness from the plums and a fairly fruity aroma.
T: The flavor has just an ever so slight sweet/sourness happening from the fruit. The usual Dubbel malt, candi sugar, and yeast are there as well.
M: The beer is medium bodied with a fairly high level of carbonation and a nice dry finish.
D: Not necessarily the best beer, but a very interesting one. And, I like the idea, as I think plums are generally one of the fruit flavors present in a Dubbel. deadoralive (11) - California, USA - JAN 5, 2010
Pours dark with a big plum hue. Lots of fruit in this one. I’d drink this all night long. keidjxz (184) - Fullerton, California, USA - AUG 30, 2009
Growler purchased from the brewery. Opaque amber color with a light head. Flavor of a quality abbey double with a hint of fruit and a sweet aftertaste. can8ianben (1545) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2009
Sampled an early pilot batch of this before it was officially released. Flecs of plum were noticeable then set against an orange/red color. Fruity and bitter and very pleasant. I really enjoyed the creativity that this one had. BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 1, 2009
On tap at the brewery. Pours with a large, bone colored, creamy head over a hazed orange body. Aroma of plum and candi sugar. Taste is lightly tart, with dark fruits, candi sugar, and tart plum skins. Light carbonation.

7/4/09 notes: On tap at brewery. Pours darker than most Belgians, probably due to the plum addition. Nose is fruity sweet, with hints of bubble gum. Flavor starts mellow with some upfront spice, then moves gradually sweeter to a plum-fruity finish. Remains a smooth drink throughout. A solid concoction, well executed and tasty.

On tap at the brewery, the folks there said that this was a "light" abbey dubbel with plums added. It had a nice fruity flavor and was easy to drink.
