16 oz. CAN poured into big tulip

(a dubbel in a can, y'all!)

L: classic dubbel brown but with loads of amber in it; this one built a solid head on a hard pour, close to an inch of tan foam that's quite thick; almost 100% clear

S: wine and yeast, sweet molasses; fruity with just a hint of banana/bubble gum

T: plenty sweet and fruity, a bit of dark dried fruits

F: solid, not fantastic -- it doesn't have that big Belgian carbonation thing. it's not bad, though

O: a good attempt at the classic style. it's not Rochefort 6, but I had to try a Texas-made dubbel, and it's not disappointing

Again, another beer listing with no actual reviews. It does not take a lot of effort, but whatever. Had this on tap at Down House in Houston.

A: Pours a clear ruby brown color. A one finger beige head rises and recedes with good lace left behind.
S: A good malty aroma. Toasted, caramel sweetness, candied sugars. Simple, but enjoyable.
T: Again, fairly simple, but I enjoyed this more and more with every sip. Toasted malts, sweet caramel and candied sugars. Light dark fruits like plumbs and light banana like fruity esters. Very enjoyable.
M/D: A medium body and low carbonation. Not under carbonated at all. Though a little on the thin side. Very easy to drink and enjoy. I downed my glass quickly and could have some more.

A simple, but well made version of the style. Lots of malty goodness, and easy to drink. Not a world beater, but solid all around. This should not be ignored.

Really, this is best Belgian Style Dubbel I had, so far. It proved me why it won GOLD medal at 2013 GABF. Hats off to Cedar Creek Brewery. I poured directly into my snifter glasses from its' tallest can. Its' appearance is unique and convincing that it is a good beer to enjoy along with hunting food I had recent. I am confident that I will visit its' brewery in the nearest future.

Chilled 16 oz. can into a 33 cl tulip. No canning date. Picked up a four pack for $15(!) about a week and a half ago.

Look- Deep amber-red, nearly brown. Crystal clear. A finger and a half of off-white head settle to a two-fingernail cap, no lacing.

Smell- Currant, nougat, bready without being grainy. Light sweetness, some bubblegum and spice. Swirling brings out more banana and a sweeter, boozier maple-nut aroma. Nice.

Taste- Not as sweet as anticipated, restrained burnt caramel and cherry, toasted marshmallow. Finishes with a touch of astringency and lingering banana-mango.

Mouthfeel- Medium body, light-to-medium carbonation comes off as a bit prickly. Mild bite from the alcohol notable after half the can or so. Light feel.

Overall- Not too bold, but nuanced and depth of flavor. Well done, well above average for the style. Nonetheless, ~$4.00/can isn't something I'd go for under normal circumstances. Good for them getting their stuff out after winning at the GABF though.
