A - An orangish resiny amber color with honey highlights... A small whimsical off white head quickly fades leaving a very faint lacing with a ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass... Just the slight amount of moderate paced carbonation can be seen rising throughout... Leaves a slight syrupy film on the glass as the session proceeds...
S - Sweet fruit... Buttery caramel... Yeast... Some minor spicy notes... Apricot... Most sweet, a tad bit fruity...
T - Slightly sweet caramel... Apple... A faint yeasty presence... Raisins... Wheat... Peaches... Honey... Some candied sugars...
M - Medium bodied... A tinge of prickly carbonation... Ever so slightly sticky... A tad on the dry side...
D - A solid offering from Iron Hill... It's nice to see brew pubs that pay ample attention to the Belgian styles... Not bad, but far from best in class... This was enjoyable, but far from memorable... If at Iron Hill again, I wouldn't mine quaffing one back, but not before trying some of the other beers on the menu...

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.
