look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Dark brown with a ruby tinge (mahogany), almost no carbonation, filtered and semi-opaque, huge beige head fades relatively fast to a finger.

S: Belgian yeasts, raisins, cherries, dark fruits, prunes, light smokiness, sweet and earthy.

T: Cherries, Belgian yeasts, raisins, dark fruits, earthy, much like a dubbel. Reminds me of Leffe’s Vielle Cuvee.

M: Medium somewhat weighty body, but smooth and clean finish, medium carbonation.

O: Very balanced, very well crafted beer. Got at Oppermans in Saginaw, drank June 2nd, 2014 in Uxbridge. Very well crafted beer

Got this on tap at Hopcat in East Lansing. Served in a tulip.

A: pours a deep hazy, cranberry brown color with a short ta head with small splotches of lace.

S: Smells of cherries, wheat, yeast, malts, sugars, hops

T: Sweet, mellow flavor, a bit dry. tastes of yeast, wheat, grains, cherries, malts, sugars, yeast followed through with a slightly bitter hop fiish.

M: Medium bodied beer with good amounts of carbonation, has a slight hop after taste.

O: Overall, this was an excellent local dubbel. It was not revolutionary or anything but it hit the spot.
