3.05/5  rDev -14.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into my Chimay goblet.

Appearance: Pours a beautiful clear reddish-brown, with one finger of slightly off-white head that subsided quickly. Minimal lacing.

Smell: Sweet bready malt, a surprisingly strong scent of tangy fruit (cherries?), belgian yeast. The fruit is the dominant scent here, and it threw me off, initially.

Taste: The bready malt is the dominant flavor, backed by the taste of the flavor of the yeast. The tanginess of the fruit comes in afterwards. The whole thing tastes somewhat muted, though. There's a definite bitterness in the aftertaste that seems to clash with the other flavors of the beer.

Mouthfeel: Way too highly carbonated. I know Belgian and Belgian-style beers are usually high in carbonation, but this one was too much so. Odd, too, considering the lack of head on the beer, but the carbonation was way too sharp on the tongue, and probably served to mute some of the flavors.

Drinkability: All in all, it's mild enough that it goes down quickly, but the 7.3% ABV doesn't make that the best idea. I agree with some of the other review - it's just a little too muted, and simplistic. It's not a bad brew, and not a bad attempt at the style, but not what I would go to if I want a Dubbel.

P- Wegmans in Mechanicsburg, PA

A- A reddish amber color that is clear. really no head and minimal lacing.

S- Vinegar malts and roasted nuts. I get some sugary hints as well maybe molasses. Smell is very inviting.

F- dark chocolate roasted malts dominate the mouth. molasses or some sort of dark candied sugar fruit. I cant put my tongue on it.

M- malty and creamy. It gets to be struggle as you get closer to the bottom. The malts tend to over dominate.

O- not a bad brew but not sure I would have it at a bar. It is worth a try but nothing more.
