Bottle- Amber brown pour with a small head which muddled out. Grainy with some sweet stale sourness. Thin and a little yeast bitterness that just didn’t appeal to me, not great. Gary (2054) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2009

Poured a deep reddish brown, and gave a quite thick and rich head. Although it tasted very rich and fll flat on the palate. I would drink this again but as an after dinner beverage or as a dessert beer. Marko (5931) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 15, 2009
Bottle (Grimbergen Cuvée Ambrée Dubbel, 6.5% brewed "for" or by Kronenbourg), courtesy of and shared with ogivlado (thanks!). Poured a nice dark red-brown body. Medium-big tan head that went away at a medium pace. Sweet malty nose, some dust in the background. The taste is sweet and simple, but fine. A tasty fruity maltiness, carrying notes of apples and jam, dark malts. To sum it up, a simple, tasty Belgian that I wouldn’t mind having again. jcr (2737) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAR 15, 2009
Draft. Average size head, fizzy and light brown that reduces itself to a pool of bubbles. The body is clear and dark brown. Aroma is sweet with notes of caramel, prune, toasted grain and candy sugar. Some light mustiness. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. The finish is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Thin to medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Little complexity and thinner than better dubbels.

Carmel color with a tight white head. My nose is stuffed a bit so can’t get a good take on the aroma, but it has a nice smooth sweet flavor. A nice double. Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 14, 2009
Brown pour with small tan head. Darker fruits, raisins and sweet malts on the nose. Flavor is the same with bready notes and a bit of sour at the end. BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - MAR 12, 2009

Aroma: Nice Belgian yeast with a fruity malt aroma.
Appearance: Amber in color, clear with a thin head.
Flavor: Nice Belgian flavor with a very nice amount of yeast . This had a fruit flavor that was fresh.
Palate: Dry finish with a nice Belgian Mouthfeel.
Overall: A very nice Belgian Double. I liked this beer it was very tasty.
I have always liked this one. Pours a nutty brown color. Round balanced flavor of malt, caramel, and spice. Quite a bit of carbonation with low bitterness. Complex flavor but still relatively mild. Great dubbel. demdeac40 (299) - Etowah, North Carolina, USA - MAR 4, 2009
Pours a dark brown with little to no head. Aromas are of dark fruit, raisins licorice and a malty sweetness. Flavor is bready with a sour note on the mid palate. A little roast on the palate but mostly over shadowed by this sour taste.
