Pretty unbalanced, actually kind of gross. Whatever. It's different? I guess at least try it once... Kind of tastes like a weird candy your grandmother might give you. It could be your thing! Side note - it really opens up as it warms...

A - ox blood red with a generous head which dissipates to a thin cap

S - red grape musk, red wine, some sweet malts

T - some brown sugar, red wine again, some tart flavours, subtle banana on the finish

M - smooth, good body, light carbonation finishes sweet

This beer tastes nothing like you'd expect given the packaging.
Has a yummy malty taste but with an edge. I saw it described as liquid candy but it is not really that over-sweet. Didn't love it the first time but tried it again the next day and it was lovely. Enough flavour to be interesting but not heavy so not too filling.
Now, lets talk about the branding. It sucks. The packaging at first glance gives the impression of a cider or light beer. The name suggests a genetic abnormality but it is an organic beer. The whole branding is an oxymoron so maybe this is a hipster beer and intended to be ironic? Either way it is worth a try.

Pours a dark copper and appears stormy never quite settling down. A nice two finger head forms on the pour but doesn't stick around while the beer remains foggy.

The smell follows what I would expect from a dubbel. Some hints of caramel (plum?) and raisin. What sets this apart is the lime is quite present in the nose. I had a hard time picking out the lemongrass but it appeared as the beer warmed up further.

The caramel and malts are very present but the lime and lemongrass only show in the finish.

Their is minimal carbonation which is followed by a bit of a dry finish. The finish does leave a nice bit of spice dancing on the taste buds.

I'm glad I tried this different take on a dubbel. I would definitely have it again, especially during the summer months.
