On-tap at FFF.

A - Pours a rusty reddish brown color, white cream-colored head, thin collar, spotty lace, and some wisps on top.

S - Cherries, red wine notes, oak, slight booze tinge. The nose is slightly muted...hard to get everything that's going on here.

T - Taste is tart cherry forward, some vinous notes, caramel, brown sugar, booze, and oak. The finish is a dark fruity sweetness with some oak. Well-hidden alcohol for 10%.

M - Medium, soft carbonation, creamy finish.

O - This beer has lots of cherry notes, which I enjoy. The oak, Pinot barrels, and cherries work well together. The base beer is overtaken by all that's going on. I don't think I would ever call a Dubbel "refreshing", but this one is very easy to drink at 10%. Dangerous. Give it a try!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: deep red purple, translucent, minimal head, no lacing

S: Pinot and oak come first in a big way with delicate notes of grape and cherry to follow. An almost buttery quality pairs with tart fruits and some candi sugar

T: starts off sweet with mellow notes of banana then quickly becomes tart with a bold Pinot Noir character, some vanilla on the finish as well, finish is dry, great balance. The 10% is nowhere to be found.

Mf: smooth body, mellow carbonation

O: very nice, wine pairs nicely with the Belgian dubbel base. I'm liking the marriage of wine and beer in this example.

Had on tap at Three Floyds Brewpub. Served in a snifter.

"This is our Belgian-style dubbel ale aged in a pinot noir barrel with tart cherries. This is a really good beer."

A: Pours a dark cherry with a one finger off-white head. Thin film ring around the glass.

S: Big pinot noir right off the bat. It really took the characteristics of the barrel here. Slight sourness as well.

T: The pinot is there but the cherries start to show themselves more. Subtle tartness that is well balanced, but the Pinot Noir barrel really dominates. Little vinegar in the finish, but it morphs into subtle sweetness.

M: Light to medium bodied. Creamy feel. Very dry and tart light cherry finish.

O: Quite the interesting beer. It doesn't quite have the dubbel feel and the wine barrel really takes over. The subtle tartness is good though and wasn't over powering. I did miss the normal dark fruits though.
