This was poured into a chalice. The appearance was centered around a decent hazy golden yellow to somewhat orange/light brown color. There was a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute and left some light lacing sticking nicely around the sides of the glass. The smell had some nice light Belgian spices up front and let in a slight sour lemon. The taste took the lemon and the Belgian spices to town and let in a decent citrus flavoring. It left a really dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. The carbonation was sharp but nothing overbearing. Overall, I say this was a pretty good Belgian pale ale worthy of having again.

Dark brown color with a little bit of a red tint. Dark fruity flavors in the smell and taste. Medium bodied but overall pretty good. Middle of the road type of beer, good but nothing spectacular.

A: Dark brown with a ruby tinge (mahogany), almost no carbonation, filtered and semi-opaque, huge beige head fades relatively fast to a finger.

S: Belgian yeasts, raisins, cherries, dark fruits, prunes, light smokiness, sweet and earthy.

T: Cherries, Belgian yeasts, raisins, dark fruits, earthy, much like a dubbel. Reminds me of Leffe’s Vielle Cuvee.

M: Medium somewhat weighty body, but smooth and clean finish, medium carbonation.

O: Very balanced, very well crafted beer. Got at Oppermans in Saginaw, drank June 2nd, 2014 in Uxbridge. Very well crafted beer

Got this on tap at Hopcat in East Lansing. Served in a tulip.

A: pours a deep hazy, cranberry brown color with a short ta head with small splotches of lace.

S: Smells of cherries, wheat, yeast, malts, sugars, hops

T: Sweet, mellow flavor, a bit dry. tastes of yeast, wheat, grains, cherries, malts, sugars, yeast followed through with a slightly bitter hop fiish.

M: Medium bodied beer with good amounts of carbonation, has a slight hop after taste.

O: Overall, this was an excellent local dubbel. It was not revolutionary or anything but it hit the spot.
