Had this on 2014-05-11 in Columbia, PA

A - Clear amber-brown with a 4-finger tan head that sticks around. Some floaties.

S - Grassy, floral, fruit, caramel malt, hint of sour.

T - Pears, caramel, fresh baked brown bread, cinnamon. The Belgian yeast is evident but not predominant. In a way, this reminds me of a thick perry (pear cider). Finishes with a nice balance of fermented pear sweetness and sourdough. Delicious.

M - Light-medium body and effervescent carbonation. Works well for this beer.

O - My wife and I both enjoyed this beer. It's been in our fridge since 2011 and we decided to finally try it on this beautiful, spring day. Perfect.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A dubbel colour, dark caramel with lots of haze. Offwhite head that fades pretty quickly to an
Inviting layer of foam, just enough to cover the surface of the liquid.

Smells great. Stewed pears, dried dark fruit (especially raisins), caramel (dark malts) and some light alcohol.

Taste follows the nose, a sweet fruity beer with enough bready malts to counter the sweetness.

Mouthfeel is good, creamy and full. Medium carbonation. Smooth.

Overal a very good dubbel/dark ale.
