look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: A slightly cloudy brown with a tinge of apricot orange hue small ivory head and spots of lace on my glass.

Smell: Light fruit in the nose with apricot pear, raisins and caramel malt, a splash of cinnamon bread and a hint of hops.

Taste: Soft caramel malt, dark fruit and bread with the alcohol showing through lightly. Apricot and fig with a breadyness and a hint of alcohol showing through and lingering on the cheeks.

Mouthfeel: Sweet medium body. Could use some more age to clear up the appearance and dry the mouth a bit.

Drinkability: This is an approachable quaffable dubbel.

Hope this is helpful.
Cheers!

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

On tap at the brewery. Much lighter in color than a traditional dubbel; almost copper colored. Good lacing, decent head retention.

Lots of fruit in the nose, with pears, plums, bananas, and an almost hefewezien-like bubblegum aspect. These notes also emerge in the taste, combining with strong fruitcake spiciness, moderate sweetness, and a low underlying bitterness. Very fruity.

Somewhat unconventional take on the style, but very tasty. Reminded me of a dark wheat beer with that banana and bubblegum flavor, combined with the darker, heavier fruits and spices you’d find in a dubbel. Worth a shot.

Serving type: on-tap
