Brouwser (119) - gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 26, 2007
Bière d’un brun assez foncé, claire et brillante, qui donne une mousse beige relativement abondante et persistante. L’apparence est parfaite.
Les arômes sont de malt, d’alcool, de céréales grillées et en toute fin de fruits secs discrets.
Le goût est moyennement sucré et reproduit fidèlement les arômes.
Le palais est moyennement rond, avec une texture légèrement aérienne quand la bière tiédie.
C’est une excellente bière, on en boirait encore, et une autre fois.

Dark brown with a nice head that leaves good lace. The aroma is sweet and malty with slight fruity notes. The flavour is sweet and acidic with notes of spice, malt, candy sugar and a hint of chemistry, that disappears as it grows warmer. the finish is long and acidic. douglas88 (9192) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 22, 2007
UPDATED: APR 29, 2008 On tap at the Sharper Edge Bistro. Pours a cloudy brown with a white thick head. The aroma is a light fruit and malt mix. The taste is dark fruit; maybe raisin and plums. A slightly sweet malt with some spices and hops noticed. Not bad overall. Easygoing with almost no aftertaste. Ljunkan (530) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2007

Bottle (330ml). Poured a opaque with ruby highlights and a large light brown head which lasted quite well. Aroma was of plums, prunes, light notes of vanilla and some sweet alcohol in the back. Taste was of sultanas and dates with hints cinnamon present. Full bodied, slightly warming with an acidic bitter finish. Chapel (468) - Levittown, New York, USA - DEC 20, 2007

I like the Radieuse better. jmm1 (132) - Andorra la Vella, ANDORRA - DEC 15, 2007
Bottle.Brown clear body with a lasting puffy beige head. Roasted malts in the nose with hints of dried plum. Sweet caramels and roasted malts atop of the mouth with a bitter chocolate finish from the hops. Low carbonation with a creamy body gives some weight to the brew. A good abbey dubbel overall.

On tap at Sharp Edge Creekhouse. I usually like dubbels from a bottle. Aroma was nice. A little dark fruit and some caramel malt. Pour was a nice medium brown with a huge 4 finger tan head with decent lacing. Taste was dark fruit, caramel malt and a little light chocolate. Nice creamy mouthfeel but a little light in the carbonation department. Nice beer.
