A very nice dubbel. Pours a beautiful red with a light tan head. Smells like banana and a bit of floral smell. Taste had banana, is smooth and creamy, but not too complex. Had on tap at the brewery during the BRU/SFO Project.

On tap at the brewery. It pours deep copper with an off white/orange head. The aroma is strong with fruitbasket, banana, plum, pear and mildly spicy yeast. The flavor is over ripe banana, plum, raisins and bread. Mildly spicy yeast finish. Well done.
