On tap @ the Brewery-Reddish pour w/a moderate head & decent carbonation. Sweet aroma. Some sweet yeast, some carbonation, a little spice, smooth & easy to drink, alcohol was well hidden. Pretty solid easy drinking brew. strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - APR 28, 2012
Draft. Copper color, nice head, clings to the glass. Soft sweetness, with the hops balance. Medium body, carboantion is present. Good beer. SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - APR 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours a cloudy light golden copper color with a small white head. Nose is peppery, some light candy notes, peppercorns. Palate is strong and in your face with a big bite, full mouth, sticky coated tongue and light pepper burn. Flavors of pepper, clove, light grassy hops, biscuits.

pours dark reddish brown with a very thin white head. aroma is sweet and syrupy with notes of yeast, spices, cherries, grape, and violets. a juicy beer with a sweet stickiness. taste is a bit hoppy with notes of lavender, yeast and grapejuice. finish is sweet with a slight alcohol burn. not bad but not particularly memorable. mcdoug (31) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 13, 2012
On cask at Max’s in Fells Point, Baltimore, Maryland. Tried this on cask instead of the Plank II they had going as part of a promotional night, being that I’d had the Plan II at a different promo night at Alewife a couple weeks back (it’s good!). The ale was striking from the start with a bright copper, almost orange color when viewed while back-lit by sunshine/light. Found Dubbel Cannon to be exceedingly pleasant to drink, with a perfect marriage of hoppiness and maltiness, and as good a cask ale as I’ve had this side of the big drink (Atlantic Ocean)!

Decent beer from Heavy Seas, the Hop3 IPA is a lot better in my opinion. This beer is much sweeter and less flavors of spices than I imagined. Not very similar to a Belgian brew.
To me the best description of this is a German Wit beer of 1/4 of the beer and a mildly hoppy IPA for the other 3/4 of the beer combined. Taste of bananas and fruits is prevalent which give it that wit feeling, bit of hops but not a ton.
Surprised it is 7.25 ABV with its taste. Good hearty ABV for someone who doesn’t like bitter hops and prefers a more sweet flavor for their strong beers. unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - FEB 16, 2012
12oz bottle. Aroma of peach juice and white pepper. Dark copper color. Thin white head. Nice lace. Creamy texture. Fine carbonation. Flavor is a touch of fruitiness, floral hops, deep caramel malts. Finishes with a citrus hop bitterness and more fruit. Very unique. If I bought a 6pk of this, instead of the single I picked up, I’d be a bit happier.

Too sweet, too heavy, funky color, fluffy head not my kind of beer. I wouldn’t buy it, my wife did. tia (2228) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2012
Bottle. Light brown with big foamy head. Smells of brown sugar and spice. Meg-just ok. The flavors don’t seem to meld together right. Kind of elusively nothing. r464 (2360) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Coppery amber in color with an off-white head. Hoppy aroma. Somewhat sweet, floral, bitter, with a hint of sourness from the belgian yeast. Interesting.
