Notes: A recreation of our November 22, 2015, Belgian-style dubbel, this iteration was aged for nearly nine months in two oak puncheons, then allowed to condition and develop for an extended period of time. Deeply inspired by the iconic Belgian beers, especially West Flanders, of the same style that we’ve enjoyed in our travels, our rendition features the classic balance of slight residual sweetness and delicate acidity, coupled with lively and effervescent carbonation (we recommend serving between 40-42º F).

This one pours a golden dark brownish color, with a little bit of red, and a small white head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like golden breadiness, rye, vinegar, red wine, cherry, lemon, dark fruit, caramel, and citrus.

I'm not entirely sure this actually tastes like a dubbel. It kind of feels more like a Flanders Red or a Flanders Oud Bruin. However you want to categorize this one - it's quite nice. As it warms especially, the maltiness comes out here, with a some dark fruit, caramel, toffee, and lots of breadiness. There's a soft lemony acidity, some tannic red wine type flavors, oak, and luckily just a small amount of vinegary type flavors.

This is slightly creamy, and pretty drinkable, with a mild lingering acidity on the back end.

This is classic HF in that's super unique and hard to nail down. It's really not dubbel-like, but it's really tasty.
