I think the Tripel is a better choice of the two. As noted, this one has a flavor dominated by alcohol.

33 cl bottle. Aroma was way better than the blond one. Dark fruits, licorice, maybe a bit vinous, raisin. Poured dark red with a thin beige head. Taste is sweet, but has something sour of the fruits as well, the raisins or wine is still in there for me.

Flaske fra Belgisk Bryg, hjemme: mørkebrun rav med flott, storboblet skum som varer. Fruktig, lett syrlig aroma og smak med kirsebær, plommer og rosiner. Karamell i bakgrunnen. Slank og samtidig rik smak, hvor syrligheten gjør at den minner litt om oude bruin. Lekrre kirsebær i avslutningen.

Vignale (3833) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 11, 2017
Flaska från belgiuminabox. Mahognyfärgad, lätt disig, ganska lågt beige skum. Doft av plommonkompott, mörkt socker, toffee och lite körsbärskärnor. Med sin lätta syrlighet stilmässigt mellan dubbel och oude bruin vilket funkar riktigt bra. Sötman matchas riktigt bra av syrliga stensfruktssmaker, främst plommon med kärnor. den ganska komplexa smaken finns också mörk toffee, marsipan, fat, fruktträ och en lätt kärnbeska. Riktigt gott.

Bottle at home. Aroma is dark malt, caramel, yeast, touch of dried fruits, raisins, brown sugar. Flavour is medium sugary sweet and light to moderate bitter. Body is medium. Not a bad Dubbel at all, I like the yeasty notes.

Slightly acidic, bit watery mouthfeel, not so dark and full taste than better belgian dubbels. Good carbonation, bit sweet.

andrepintado (3416) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - SEP 29, 2016
Bottle. Color is brown dark red. Head is thin and beige. Medium sweetness, light bitterness. Finish is light dry. Medium body. Aroma is malt, caramel, chocolate, raisins, spices.

Kita (2153) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 13, 2016
Bottle, 0.33l. Cloudy dark brown color with thin soapy tan-like head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of yeast, must, grape skin, dark fruit, earth and herbs. Taste starts moderate sweet and sour fruity and yeasty, follows by toasted malt, caramel and slightly papery, mouthfeel is medium spicy, while finish is mild bitter. Medium to full body, thick texture and fizzy carbonation in palate. Nicely balanced and a bit on a sourish side...

[email protected] Two finger foam. Dark brown. Caramel Roasted. Fine biscuit. Dry sweet. Substantial round body. Fine brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Iznogud (3811) - CROATIA - JUL 28, 2016
Bottle, 330 ml at Craft Room. Pours unclear brown with pretty large beige head. Malty, dried fruit, some caramel, yeast. Has some vinous twist to it, something quite strange, not sure if it’s meant to be like that.
