I found this at Shoreline while looking at the vast selection and knowing how much I'd like a dubbel style ale on a cold wintry day. I spied the Westmalle Dubbel and passed on it with great hesitation as it is one of my favorite examples of its kind.
The poured brownish ale with dark red edges looked good as it foamed lightly to the top of my 50cl glass. The first taste was as good as the last with the immediate champagne and malty flavors up front. I savored the creamy ending as I watched the lacing slowly make its way to the bottom.
I thought the hearty ale would be perfect to be snowed in with, but I would need a case to keep me happy as this was very easy to drink (with a refined taste). As I always speculate upon finding a great beer or ale, I will want to find this on tap sometime soon.
