This Dubbel was the best I had, from bottle to the pour to the color and robust taste it was sensational. This beer should have a papel blessing.

I wish it were winter so we could freeze it into ice blocks and skate on it and melt it in the spring time and drink it!

pours a cloudy brown with a fair size light tan head. smell is faint with a mineral note to it. taste is also light and malty with hint of spice fresh and clean on the palate and lots of carbonation. one of the better dubbel beers i have tried hats off to sierra nevada.

Hi, I'm Kris (..and you all say, "Hi Kris") and this is my first review on BA. I wanted to start with an exceptional brew and go from there.

I first picked this bottle up while on a wine tasting weekend in Sonoma, Ca. I'm so happy I did.

Appearance - poured a wonderful copper color with a soft cream colored head that dissipated a little quick and slight lacing.

Smell - great spiced fruit & clove hinted aroma, but not overwhelming.

Taste - Great. Cinnamon & mild malty fruit. I was expecting more hops, but was pleasantly surprised how clean this Dubbel finishes.

Mouthfeel - you get the complex flavors up front and rolls to a little dry. I love the high carbonation in this bottle that leaves your palette refreshed and wanting more.

Overall - this is one of my favorite brews right now and I get excited when I know that I will be popping the cork on this bad boy. I've bought more to share with friends and family. Not sure if this is on tap anywhere, but would love to compare the taste (the Saison/Farmhouse sister brew to this one reviewed is on-tap).
