Pours as expected with a nice frothy enduring head that sculpts and laces the glass.
The nose strkes me as a bucolic countryside yeast with hints of hops and some floral undertones.

The flavor has somewhat of a lightness or maybe transparency to it but the yeast flavor that I noted in the nose comes through along with hops bitterness and caramel.

Over all this is a rather meager stanced beer. It is not particularly robust but then again I don't expect that from a Belgian Ale.

It is by all means a satisfying beer and I have enjoyed it. I expect to acquire more but there are others that I'd reach for-- it's just not that memorable.

Accompanies sushi quite nicely.

A - Poured into a Leffe goblet. Dark reddish brown. Pours a large cream head with good retention but not much lacing.

S - Not a strong nose but dark sugar and toffee detectable.

T- Sweet malt with some alcoholic warmth, giving way to a strong sweetness of chocolate, toffee and dark sugar.

M- Thick, almost creamy, with slight carbonation on tongue, smooth finish.

O - Enjoyable Dubbel with pleasant sweetness but slightly imbalanced without enough bitterness.
