Bought this bottle at Drankhandel Verheyen in Poppel. Poored it into my Achel glass.

A: Great ruby/brown color. Cream colored head that leaves a nice lacing throughout the drinking.

S: Smell is impressive. Strawberries, banana roasted malts. Some spice that's hard for me to pin down.

T: Malts, red fruits, sweet banana again that spice. Light bitterness.

M: Medium carbonation, a light body.

D: I was a little sceptic about this one. Low alcohol for a dubbel. But it made quiet an impression on me. Will surely drink this again. I expected similarities with Jopen Koyt because of the herbs added, but didn't find it.

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

750 ml bottle into chalice, best before 12/26/2012. Pours fairly crystal clear deep ruby red color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, plum, pear, fig, light banana, caramel, candi sugar, toast, brown bread, clove, pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast esters and moderate candi sugar//bread/caramel malts; with good strength. Taste of raisin, plum, pear, fig, apple, light banana, caramel, candi sugar, toast, brown bread, clove, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of raisin, plum, pear, fig, apple, light banana, caramel, candi sugar, clove, toast, brown bread, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity of fruity/earthy yeast ester and moderate caramel/bready/candi sugar malt flavors; with a solid malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly crisp, and slightly slick mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this was a nice Dubbel style. Good complexity of fruity/earthy yeast ester flavors with a fair amount of caramel/bready/candi sugar malts; and very smooth and crisp to sip on. Could have used some more maltiness to balance the yeast fruitiness, but was nicely enjoyable otherwise.

2.84/5  rDev -16.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

A: light tan head, dark amber

S: hint of grapes/raisins, not especially exciting

T: very dry on the palate, initially had an interesting raisin, almost wine-like finish, but as it warmed, it did not accumulate any flavor and the dryness dominates, too one-dimensional

M: medium-heavy carbonation masks the lack of flavor

O: slightly above average beer, not my personal taste, at times, the dryness was reminiscent of a rather pedestrian beer

3.44/5  rDev +1.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Brown color with a three finger hear with medium retention.
Light aroma of slightly toasted malts and hints of wood, prunes and earthy hops.
Relatively malty and yeasty with a refreshing taste from earth hops, notes of dark fruits. Dry and mild bitter aftertaste.
Light body with medium carbonation.
This seemed to be a lighter Belgian dubbel, more thin and not as heavy in the condiments. On the other hand it seemed a bit more hoppy and less sweet than average. Not bad, but not great.
