Just OK. Not a standout for the style

Appearance: A deep nearly opaque brown doesn't quite hide the steady carbonation this offering produces. Less then what I usually expect from most of this style. A finger of sudsy head came around, retaining well enough and producing minimal lace.

Smell: There is a dry yeast smell to it that reminds me a whole wheat bread with plum and toffee backing it. Warming is definitely required on this one as without it, there is simple no scent to the beer.

Taste: Starts with a sweet malt taste with a hint of lemon that shifts over to a rich toffee malt with notes of plum, coffee and ending with a slightly copper finish as earth hops blend strangely but well with a metallic note that oddly doesn't seem out of place.

Mouthfeel: The carbonation helps out the entire beer, and while there is a bit of a dry note in the aftertaste, the rich, fruity yeast and toffee aftertaste makes it easily excusable. Decent enough transitioning too.

Drinkability: Very light bodied, but that should be expected as this is a fairly low ABV for a beer of this style. It's easy to drink, and refreshing enough with a solid amount of taste to make it a welcome treat.

Final Thoughts: All in all, a solid and well made Dubbel that might have gotten off to a bit of a rocky start, but to me, makes up for it where it counts. For some reason I can't help but think it would go well with fish. Thumbs up.
