Bottle poured into a goblet.
A: Clear, ruby-red; very pleasing to my eye. Decent head that dissipates pretty quickly.
S: Fruity, with a hint of caramel and a trace of sour. "Farmhouse Ale" was the first thing that came to mind.
T: Very easy to drink; plenty of raisins, dark cherries and a little bit of apple. Good balance of sweet and sour; really no hop bitterness to speak of. For some reason, it tasted like it had a higher ABV than it does.
M: Fairly thin, but not unpleasant. Not a lot of carbonation.
O: I'm fairly new to the style, but I liked this dubbel; it goes down very easily, and while it lacks a powerful character, it does make for a very pleasant experience. I'll definitely be buying more of this one.
