Extremely well balanced, all notes are playing in key and with the perfect dynamics, if you'll excuse the cheesy music comparison. There's a delicate bubblegum/banana sweetness, nice gentle hops, smooth caramel and a good oily medium-body behind this extremely easy-to-drink beer. I could drink this all day.

Dark brown with low tan head and champagne bubbles. The nose is sweet with rich earthy soil notes. Hints of volcanic red rock. Taste is sweetagain with molasses and honey balanced with cedar oak and damp black compost. Richly dehydrated raisins. Finish is mildly hoppy, very mild but just enough to mostly balance the sweetness. Mouth feel is on the thin side. The flavor profile is spot on, but just a tad thin on the texture. I'm minor critique though, great beer, I really like it.

Updated 8/31/16.

Look: Sound Brewery tasting glass, on draft. Caramel brown reddish body, thin white head.

Smell: Dark fruit, burnt sugar, and notes of coffee.

Taste: Same as above.

Feel: Medium body and carbonation. The alcohol isn't hidden very well.

22oz into my Duvel Tulip.
Look: a nice dark amber, ruby on the edges with a lively 1 finger nougaty colored head. I can hear it bubbling. Very lively beer.
Smell: apple cider vinegar, martinelli's sparkling cider. Dominated by the sour smell when initially cold. As the carbonation subsided, some chocolate, banana, spices and fruits came out, not a lot though. Still dominated by the apple cider vinegar smell.
Taste: The flavors are bounded by a sour note that lingers. In between the sour, I got hints of malt and toffee. No bitterness at all. Tasting blind, I would peg this for an apple sour. Some dark fruits push through, maybe some chocolate as it warmed. Might need to let it warm past what I like to drink beer at.
Feel: feel is lively, the carbonation look and sound continues in the mouth and dances. Not as much as a sparkling water/wine etc...
Overall: tasty beer, not what i was expecting or remember. Not sure why the sour notes are so dominate compared to what other reviewers have submitted. My wife tried it also and thought it was a sour. She liked it still and found it refreshing.

Poured into my large Gulden Draak tulip, Dubbel Entendre is dark brown, with a small light sand head leaving scattered foamy lace.

Smell is fruity, lots of lime zest, which is an unusual ester skew.

Taste is also fruity and a little earthy, some yeastiness. Dark maltiness on the acrid side. Light sweetness.

Mouthfeel is medium-light, dry.

Drinkability is ok, a solid dubbel, but quickly forgettable. Well executed though not necessarily designed to my liking.

I am pretty new to the style so I can't say too much other than I am very impressed by the craft and beauty that obviously went into this beer. Excellent ale!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a murky brown. Deep red in the glass. Fingers worth of a tan head.

Smell: Cherries, raspberries, strawberries. Lots of sour berry notes, reminiscent of a Flemish red ale. Sweet breadiness with very subtle spice character. Just super fruity.

Taste: Yeasty breadiness with some spices. Sour burst of fruits. Sour cherry dominates the fruit but the bready notes in the nose are much more prominent in the flavor. Pretty mellow overall. The flavors blend nicely and the 8 % is completely hidden.

Mouthfeel: Medium. The breadiness in the flavor also provides a graininess to the mouthfeel that's not unpleasant.

Overall: Fruit forward and very drinkable. A nice dubbel and worth trying, especially if you're a fan of the style.

22 ounce bottle into chalice, no bottle dating. Pours hazy very dark reddish brown color with a small light khaki head with decent retention, that reduces to a small lace cap. Minimal lacing on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big toffee, raisin, prune, banana, toast, molasses, dark bread, candi sugar, clove, pepper, light chocolate, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of big toffee, raisin, prune, banana, toast, dark bread, molasses, candi sugar, clove, pepper, light chocolate, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of toffee, raisin, prune, banana, toast, molasses, dark bread, candi sugar, clove, light chocolate, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of malt and yeast ester flavors; with great robustness and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a moderately creamy and slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent and unique Dubbel style. All around great balance and complexity of malt and yeast flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

On-tap at the Main Street Ale House in Kingston, Washington. I was really hoping to try something from this little Poulsbo brewery, and was happy to find this on tap. Tasted 25 July 2012, reviewed from notes.

Pours a clear mahogany color, with little head or lacing.

Smell is brown sugar, nicely sweet, with a bit of spicy bite.

Taste is smooth, and sweet, as expected, with a surprisingly crisp back-end.

Lovely mouthfeel, rich, smooth, and sugary sticky. Just enough carbonation, and a finish that's less candy-like than many dubbels.

Quite a tasty beer. One of the nicer American dubbels I've had recently.

a well made and layered belgian dubbel, better than par for the american brewers, and with a ton of cool dried fruit character in here. its deep amber brown in color with a tall rich tan head, looks very active and smells quite traditional. i get brown sugar and maple right away, with figs and raisins in there behind it and a yeast strain that has some mulling spice element to it as well as a bright estery lightness that helps make this beer seem a little more drinkable than it probably should be. the dried fruits abound in the flavor, nice malt depth for sure. i get dried red apple, plum, fig, date, and raisin, as well as mild cherry as it moves along, orange marmalade, toffee, bread pudding, and the spices from the belgian yeast to finish. it sure is sweet in the middle, but it doesnt end that way which is cool, and the carbonation really keeps it moving. this is a real well made beer and achieves most of the depth i look for in the imports and trappist takes on the style. our bottle tastes just a little oxidized, perhaps not as fresh as it could be, but this is one that should hold up pretty well. enjoyable beer from these guys, ahead of the american made belgian style curve for sure...
