bartlebier (3562) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2016
Well-tempered on draught in Voerenstreekse B&B, overly chilled at Casse-Croute near source, 75cl bottle shared Thuis. - When poured on point, creamy, easygoing, yeast-subdued Belgian dubbel shining with lush caramalts, cassonade, roast bread crust and natural fruit caramels. Dessert quality, low spiciness, fruity yet non-sticky. - Odd absence of typical yeast esters and phenols - the home crowd will tend to see this lack of yeast complexity as a simplistic rendition of the classic style - but paired in perfect creamy unison with boulets à la liégeoise it hit all buttons, so I cannot help but hold it in high regard.

mrjez (515) - Osaka, JAPAN - JUN 17, 2016
Corked 750ml bottle. Nice dark mahogany pour, big fluffy cloud of beige head. Yeast aroma, caramel and brown sugar, prunes. Sweet burnt caramel flavour, a tangy citrus note, dark fruit. Soft mouthfeel with underlying small prickly bubbles, lingering tang like a fizzy candy, slight booze. Decent.
