4.08/5 rDev -1.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
Served in an Ommegang 14 oz. beer goblet, poured from a 750 ml bottle.
A - An almost opaque orange amber color, light but full colored. Gives me confidence in the quality of the beer.
S - A nice upfront malty aroma, an almost cereal-esque backing. A little sugary fruit on the nose too.
T - Slightly hoppy, but with a nice counteracting sweetness. It's got a very balanced taste, with floral and spicy notes adding onto the enjoyment. It's almost like what I think of when I first think 'beer.'
M - Just slightly thick in the mouth and smooth going down, but the carbonation's kind of excitable; it foams up in my mouth a lot every time I sip.
D - Very smooth with no offensive aftertaste. The only thing keeping this from perfect is the 7% ABV. Best to share this one with a friend.
Overall, a very enjoyable dubbel. Quite refreshing and drinkable despite its ABV, and definitely one I will purchase again in the future.
