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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

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.

A: Poured a deep mahogany color with hues of red, crimson with a nice dirty white cap

S: Candy fruits, grains and dark fruits

T: Bland. Immediate sordove muddy grapes, some candy sugar but really appealling and I swear this beer was missing the yeast strain.

M: Well carbonated, medium body, not really full nor fulfilling

O: Boy, this beer has fallen off since the first time I had it in 2011. My intial review when I added this beer was a 4.25 but I am not sure what happened since then. Eventhough it was served improperly in a pint glass I found myself struggling to power through this beer.

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.

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.

Dark brown with red highlights, thin tan head, and no retention. Belgian sugar, fruity yeast, chocolate aromas with hints of licorice. Deep chocolate and Belgian sugar with dark fruit/ plum. Light alcohol warming with a semidry finish. Light, dry, thin feel.

Great aroma and some good flavor but the dryness in the feel and linger detracts from the flavor. Everything blends together to make a drinkable yet muddy beer.

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.
