Notes from early 90. Bottle. Amber color. Aroma’s: herbs & spices, sugarry. Flavor is only light sweet. Medium bodied. Long finish, mainly with herbs & spices. Not quite balanced. ShivanDragon (4704) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2015
schenkt amber met witte kraag. Aroma is redelijk aanwezig in de vorm van iets peer achtigs, verder lijkt het wel wat op champagne/wijn aroma.... vreemd.... Smaken zijn behoorlijk aan de caramel kant, ook iets van frutigheid en fruitzuurtje, peer/appel.. wederom vreemd... verder matig zoet, licht bitter, zeer vreemd smaken en ruikend biertje, kan niet zeggen dat het vies is ... maar echt lekker is het nu ook weer niet

Pours an orange-brown with a bit of haze. Nice caramel malt and hoppy aroma. Actually one of few beers in Belgium that remind me of a hoppy American amber ale. There’s a bit too much harsh bitter in this, maybe blending with some overheat from the alcohol. A bit of a musty note to it as well. Alengrin (5902) - BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2014
’Streekbier’ from Diest but brewed in Melle, with yellowish white, moussy, stable head and darkish orange blonde colour with brownish hue probably due to ageing, cloudy and a bit ’soupy’ with obvious yeast and protein flakes floating around everywere. Nutty and caramelly malts in the nose, apple, lemon zest, grapefruit, cooked rhubarb, cloves, dough, pepper, honey. Subdued fruity taste, some citrus, sharp carbonation, malty caramelly middle, finish medium hoppy, pleasantly bitterish. Tasted at 4 years of age and apart from the somewhat messy appearance, this was still quite enjoyable, though I will probably not remember it for the rest of my life.

330ml bottle. Not sure how or when i got it but it was in my collection.
In short: average dubbel.
From old notes: An average abbey dubbel beer. Some malty, caramel and liquorice, some liquor notes. Alcohol noticed.
