Extremely well balanced, all notes are playing in key and with the perfect dynamics, if you'll excuse the cheesy music comparison. There's a delicate bubblegum/banana sweetness, nice gentle hops, smooth caramel and a good oily medium-body behind this extremely easy-to-drink beer. I could drink this all day.

Poured into my large Gulden Draak tulip, Dubbel Entendre is dark brown, with a small light sand head leaving scattered foamy lace.

Smell is fruity, lots of lime zest, which is an unusual ester skew.

Taste is also fruity and a little earthy, some yeastiness. Dark maltiness on the acrid side. Light sweetness.

Mouthfeel is medium-light, dry.

Drinkability is ok, a solid dubbel, but quickly forgettable. Well executed though not necessarily designed to my liking.

I am pretty new to the style so I can't say too much other than I am very impressed by the craft and beauty that obviously went into this beer. Excellent ale!

Appearance: Pours a murky brown. Deep red in the glass. Fingers worth of a tan head.

Smell: Cherries, raspberries, strawberries. Lots of sour berry notes, reminiscent of a Flemish red ale. Sweet breadiness with very subtle spice character. Just super fruity.

Taste: Yeasty breadiness with some spices. Sour burst of fruits. Sour cherry dominates the fruit but the bready notes in the nose are much more prominent in the flavor. Pretty mellow overall. The flavors blend nicely and the 8 % is completely hidden.

Mouthfeel: Medium. The breadiness in the flavor also provides a graininess to the mouthfeel that's not unpleasant.

Overall: Fruit forward and very drinkable. A nice dubbel and worth trying, especially if you're a fan of the style.

22 ounce bottle into chalice, no bottle dating. Pours hazy very dark reddish brown color with a small light khaki head with decent retention, that reduces to a small lace cap. Minimal lacing on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big toffee, raisin, prune, banana, toast, molasses, dark bread, candi sugar, clove, pepper, light chocolate, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of big toffee, raisin, prune, banana, toast, dark bread, molasses, candi sugar, clove, pepper, light chocolate, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of toffee, raisin, prune, banana, toast, molasses, dark bread, candi sugar, clove, light chocolate, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of malt and yeast ester flavors; with great robustness and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a moderately creamy and slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent and unique Dubbel style. All around great balance and complexity of malt and yeast flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

On-tap at the Main Street Ale House in Kingston, Washington. I was really hoping to try something from this little Poulsbo brewery, and was happy to find this on tap. Tasted 25 July 2012, reviewed from notes.

Pours a clear mahogany color, with little head or lacing.

Smell is brown sugar, nicely sweet, with a bit of spicy bite.

Taste is smooth, and sweet, as expected, with a surprisingly crisp back-end.

Lovely mouthfeel, rich, smooth, and sugary sticky. Just enough carbonation, and a finish that's less candy-like than many dubbels.

Quite a tasty beer. One of the nicer American dubbels I've had recently.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a medium to dark mahogany amber. Half finger light tan head slowly dissipates to a film, slight lacing. Aroma of caramel malt with a bit of cola, dark fruit. Flavor of sweet caramel malt, dark and dried fruit, somewhat subdued, but well integrated. Flavor falls off in mid taste, ending with a surprisingly dry and hop bitter finish. Then interestingly, lingering aftertaste of the sweet malt and dark fruit. An interesting flavor progression and a nice American take on a dubble. The mouthfeel also has a progression from an initial medium body with a hint of creaminess, then finishing somewhat thin, but with decent carbonation. Sound Brewery is doing an excellent job with its Belgian inspired beers.

Last Sound Brewery offering from Libbey, bummer to see this neck-taped bottle adventure end. Pours a medium brown-ish red color with good clarity. Thick, frothy tan head surprisingly leaves very little lace.

Nose shows caramel-drizzled cinnamon rolls and a fair amount of breadiness. A nice little blend of yeasty bread and spiciness.

Has a nice, silky chocolate component to the flavor with some toasty bread and lighter raisin notes. Quite tasty, the yeast and malt play well together and are complimented by a perfect alcohol/hop dryness at the end. Its not all that bold of a beer...everything is pretty tame, but nicely integrated. Goes down really easy and I would have to put the body at less than medium but smooth comes to mind well before thin. Very good beer, I would love to have another bottle or two of this.
