I assume this is the only dubbel they have made and that I had the one I am reviewing. Smell is on point with a nice Belgian character, banana, clove up front and the flavor is dark fruit, plum-ish. Moderately sweet which is the only somewhat negative I can say about this beer.

There was nothing about this beer that resembles a true belgo dubbel.

Hazy and unfiltered with a thick, splotchy, loosely carbonated head. This beer appears a bit lighter in color than the style calls for

No esters present

Light in body and flavor with nothing indicating a Belgian, let alone a beer above 6%.


Undercarbonated. Too light. Nothing redeeming about this.

Back to the drawing board. At least they had Rip Van Winkle on the shelves. Might rope some suckers into spending money here. Otherwise, I hope the food is awesome.

1.87/5  rDev -11.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 2

Appearance: a wooden brown color with perfect clarity. No head or lacing to speak of. Looks too light and off

Smell: weak. No yeast character. I mainly get dark candi sugar

Taste: opens up with a light dark candi sugar and progresses into a grassy almost light lagerish taste. No yeast character or dark fruit. Also watery

Mouthfeel: light and dull

Overall: I usually try to find good things but this was just impossible to do here. Too light, and I wander what yeast they used because it was nonexistent.
