Bottled, named St. Idesbald Dubbel.Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2005
Served in ceramic soup cup at Turisthotellet, Ljungskile, Sweden, which is, or at least has been one of the best beer drinking spots in Scandinavia, as they've boosted a selection of 400+ Belgian beers and a wonderful location overviewing the fjord. Sadly the place is now up for sale, and the beer selection is being cut back a lot. This beer is nut brown and seet with toffee and syrup. The mouthfeel is clean, hard and sharp and the finish short and roasty. Sub-par, like most Huyghe's beers.
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2006 (Bottle 33 cl) Comes as "St. Idesbald Dubbel". Reddish brown with a nice head. Full-bodied and smooth, more dry than sweet. Some caramel and dried fruits in there. In no way unique but fairly classical for its type. 020896
