Alengrin (5633) - BELGIUM - OCT 16, 2017
The stereotypical brown 'dubbel' follow-up to the blond one. At Nationale Bierhappening in its home region, poured by the brewer. Very thick, creamy, pale yellowish white, stable and lacing head over a very dark ruddy bronze-ish, cloudy chestnut brown beer. Aroma of caramel candy, bubblegum, papier maché, dried plums, banana, redcurrant, plastic, white pepper. Sweet onset, residual brown sugars, fig, peach, banana ester, some light sourishness underneath, very fizzy carbonation. Slick, bit resiny mouthfeel, caramelly malt sweetishness with a light toasty edge, bit nutty as well, very smooth and a tad plastic-like in the end, with ongoing banana-bubblegum ester and a touch of clove-like phenols; mild herbal hop bitterness too, alcohol remains hidden. Technically very correct, but also very stereotypical - in other words: dead boring - dubbel. Jerre (3800) - Waregem, BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2017

Copper red, small head. Typical aroma, very French amber like, with dry roasted malts. Moderate sweet, Belgian yeast and simple fermentation. It’s quite well done but not my favourite style. (33cl bottle from Prik & Tik Leuven)
