3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle, 7% a/v (My first beer with a cork! :-) )
Pours a cloudy ruby/chocolate colour with a dense offwhite head. Honey and cinammon in the nose with a smell of almost some sweet fruit liquor. Taste is somewhat alcoholic with a strong fruit presence, a nice spicy aftertaste on the tongue leaves you longing for another sip.. Definetly a nice beer when you wanna spoil yourslef.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The cork said 01/05, so I assume that this one is a year and a hlf old - I’ve had it in the basemenet for 8 months. About a half inch, light-brown head that mostly diminished. Color was a nice brown.
Aroma was light malt, bread, yeast and a little roasted. Taste was thin and there really wasn’t much to it. Not much matliness that I would’ve expected. Carbonation was still lively, but it had a bit of a metallic taste. I think I need to find a freash one of these and compare.

330 ml bottle in Ravenna, Italy. Pours a dark amber color with a descent frothy head. A malty hay aroma along with a hint of caramel and spiciness. The taste is well balanced with a moderately sweet start to a slightly bitter finish. There’s nice carbonation with a moderate alchohol finish. Very well crafted!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A thick, foamy head results in a dense layer of bubbles on the surface of the beer. The aroma was predominantly wheat, malt, and a general fruitiness (raisins, dates, apricots, citrus). Flavors were a complex blend of malt, yeast, caramel, dried fruits (dates, raisins), citrus (orange, lemon), some general spiciness, and some slight hint of hops in the finish. Really great, one of the greatest dubbels without question...

Pours a dark red, coppery color. Foamy white head. Nose of apricots, citrus, perhaps some caramel and hops. Flavor is citrus and hops, with an overall sweetness. I think I’m beginning to love Belgians more and more..
