look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a clear deep reddish brown in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and some crimson red highlights. The beer has a half finger tall tall foamy tan head that slowly reduces to a large patch of thick film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of fruits (apple, pear, and raisin) over the top of lighter aromas of Belgian yeast and sweet malts.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of dark malts with a moderate amount of candi sugar sweetness. That is followed by moderate flavors of fruits (apple, raisin, and pear) as well as the distinctive Belgian yeast characteristics. Hints of bitterness in the finish which fades almost instantly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Relatively smooth.

O: A decent example from an American brewery of a Dubbel but nothing exceptional. Enjoyable and worth trying but nothing out of this world. My first try from this brewery.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

A: Poured from a bottle to a goblet. Had a brownish color and a clear texture. There was a two inch, foamy, very long-lasting head. Good lacing.

S: A sharp aroma of fruit, yeast, and some malt. Fairly standard for the style.

T: Tasted of yeast, fruit (apples especially), and a higher amount of malt than I expected. One of the main problems here is that it's a bit thin, especially in the finish. The flavor seems not to have been pushed far enough, giving it a lack of complexity.

M: A pretty good amount of carbonation with a slightly harsh finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is another beer that doesn't quite make it. It's worth a try, but there are better examples of the style out there.
