4.3/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

I drank the white and blue first, just now having the red for the first time. i gotta say it's better than i thought it would be. i might like it better than the white, hard to say, and it definitely holds its own against the other dubbels i've had.

pours out the same color as the label. a lovely and mouth-watering maroon with an awesome tan head that won't leave. smells like toast! rye bread to be specific, hard to pinpoint more scents after considering toast, but probably some dark fruitiness, like prunes and a hint of spiciness.

this is tasty, smooth and soft, wonderful but quite understated, at a lower abv than the blue i consider this more drinkable and give it a high score. however, if you ask my wallet, the drinkability is quite low. awesome. the kind of beer that makes me wonder why the hell i would ever resort to drinking anything less
