Okay so I'm not a fan of Belgian beers but usually from dubbel upwards they start becoming interesting. This one I liked quite a bit, for being quite remarkably hoppy along with a bit caramel sweetness in the taste. The flavor is quite remarkable, I haven't had this kind of hops before. I would have liked to have just a bit more of a body to it, because regardless the 6.8%, it is quite watery in the end. Despite all of that, it is quite good, a nice entry to the world of Belgian beers.

Good but not great, in my opinion. Had it on tap, at a brown cafe in Vaals, NL, just a few km from the Belgian border.
Dark color, low density head. Bouquet is fruity, slightly metallic. Taste malty and fruity (a bit like prunes?). Much more impressed by Corsendonk and Tripel Karmeliet at the same cafe on a different day.

Pours a murky copper color with a medium top off beige head that disolves in a slow pace. Aroma is off dark matured and dried fruits , caramel,cinnamon and burned sugar. The taste is medium sweet and medium bitter . It is fruity in the starts and finish off with a slight spicy bitterness. A little weak in the finish and aftertaste. It is medium carbonated with a medium body and a creamy mouthfeel. All in all is a good and easy drinking dubbel, but it gets a little weak in all fronts to be a outstanding dubbel.

When I opened the bottle is fizzed up everywhere and it was lucky I did it by the sink and now by my laptop, so watch out!

Good head level and reddish brown colour.

Aroma of currants, dates and maybe banana skin...

Not really a huge fan of doubles/dubbels...not really a fan of this either. Neither the refreshingness of a lager or depth of flavour of a tripel, the hoppiness of an IPA or the smoothness of a porter.

Flavour is kind of bananaskinny and malty. It's ok though I do not really like it..!
