4.16/5  rDev +14%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a New Belgium Globe glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep dark brownish amber ruby with a moderate amount of rising bubbles. About two fingers of off white head which slowly fade into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a lot of creamy lacing around the glass.

Smell: A yeasty, sweet, and fairly tart Belgian aroma with big hints of fruits and spices. Belgian yeast with some hints of clove, pepper, and cinnamon spicing. Scent of Brett funk giving a tart cherry like smell. Fruity hints of banana, pear, and apple as well as some bubblegum hints. Citrus fruit hints of pineapple and grapefruit. Roasted malts with hints of caramel, toffee, chocolate, biscuit, grains, and toast. Dark fruit hints of dark cherry, plum, raisin, prune, and fig. Sweet hints of Belgian candied sugar and brown sugar. Subtle earthy hops. A very solid aroma.

Taste: Like the aroma previews, a yeasty, sweet, and tart Belgian style taste with good notes of spices and fruits. Belgian yeast upfront with a mix of spices including clove, cinnamon, and peppers. Tart fruity cherry notes from some Brett funk. Other fruit notes include banana, apple, pear, and some citrus pineapple, orange, and grapefruit. Notes of bubblegum and some sweet candied Belgian sugar and brown sugar. Roasted malts with notes of biscuit, toffee, caramel, chocolate, toasted bread, and grains. Dark fruit undertones with notes of plum, dark cherry, prune, raisin, and fig. Light earthy hop notes. A pretty interesting and good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Creamy, slick, and spicy. Sweet but finishes fairly dry. Alcohol heat is light.

Overall: An interesting and solid tasting twist on a Dubbel. Good mix of spices and fruit esters. The Brett adds an interesting kick.

3.29/5  rDev -9.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Deep crimson red pour, strange for a dubbel, with a one finger beige head that quickly gave way to a thin beige ring around the beer. Minimal lacing on the glass.

Smell: Raisins, earth tones, figs, strange cherry notes, a spicy scent I can't describe.

Taste: This is where the beer went sideways to me, at least in a style sense. Sweet figs and raisins with coffee tones in the front of the drink with just the lightest kick of hop spice in the middle. The finish is a mix of cherries with an earthy aftertaste that seems to linger. There is no hint of trappist or belgian yeast here. This is the strangest tasting dubbel I have ever tried.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation, the carbonation feel seemed to increase as the drink warmed. Still easy drinking and with the alcohol notes hidden so well it would be a dangerous session beer.

Overall: Not by any means a bad beer, just not true to the advertised style. I like the beer and will have again.
