An extremely mediocre to less than mediocre Abbey style dubbel.
This beer is far too light in body and color to compare to the finer representations of the style. It pours a transparent brown with a thin, unimpressive head (poured by an Old Dominion employee at a beer festival) into a weizen glass.
Taste profile is slightly sweet, but not caramelly, and there are no defining fruit or malt notes to speak of. The flavor is almost all candy sugar with a sour quality that fails to capture the depth of the style. There simply isn't enough roasted malt character or richness for a dubbel.
Mouthfeel is carbonated and bubbly - not smooth as I would want. This beer would benefit from aging or aerating or nitro.
Overall: it falls in the style and is neither ss deep or, alternatively, as refreshing as I could want.
Serving type: on-tap
