12oz bottle to tulip. Sampled 10/30/11.

A: Pours with 1 1/2 fingers of creamy light brown head. Semi long lasting. The body is a medium-dark shade of amber brown. An off-putting amount of particulate can be seen suspended in solution. Lacing is spare.

S: The nose is pretty empty at first - and opens slowly, but still lacks the depth/complexity that better versions of the style exhibit. Grain, bread, toasted caramel and spices. Light alcohol is evident.

T: The flavor is slightly more complex than the nose suggested bringing about notes of dried banana chips, clove, a mixture of prunes, dates and apple, light tobacco, plus a little brown sugar towards the back end. Perhaps a little chocolate.

M: Medium body with a semi thick texture. Nice and lively carbonation.

O: Enjoyable and easy to drink, and better than expected - but still comes across as a cheap American interpretation.

Recieved as part of a trade with nas4atu... Thanks Eric!! Live review, bottle into Duvel Tulip

Appearance; pours a cloudy mahogany reddish brown color, with maybe a half finger of bubbly brown head, that dissipates exceptionally quickly leaving no lacing and a very thin film... 

Smell; has a bready quality, hints of cinnamon, nutmeg and spices... Definitely has the "Belgian Yeast" smell going as well... The best I can describe that is muted notes of raisins and other similar dark fruits...

Taste; has a definite bready backbone, hints of raisin, nutmeg, cinnamon... Plenty of other spices I can't discern, slight notes of caramel and brown sugar.

Mouthfeel; effervescent in the mouth, with a juicy finish, I'd put this on the lighter side of medium body...

Overall; my fondness for the Belgian style has unfortunately faded quite a bit since the start of my craft beer journey... This was a very enjoyable beer of a style that I don't spend time with.

Received in trade from mdaschaf, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a deep reddish brown color with a smallish off white head that dissipates all to quickly. Smells of brown sugar and sweet fruity malt mostly. Raisins and prunes with a fair amount of caramelized sugars and hints of spicy yeasty esters. Taste is sweet and fruity up front with dark caramelized sugars coming next. Yeasty funk finishes as well a a lingering burnt sugar sweetness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. Not bad for an American interpretation of a dubbel. I enjoyed this one.
