Red amber pour with soft white head. Had an aroma of dark fruits (cherries). Malt was also present in the aroma as well as the taste. Medium bodies with a smooth texture and pleasant aftertaste. Soft brew with a sweet taste. Good amount of carbonation. Really enjoyed this beer from Petoskey Brewing Company!

16 oz can. Pours clear reddish amber with a medium light tan head that retains well and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is malty fruitcake with some Belgian notes.

The flavor is sweet sugary caramel malts with dark fruit and some Belgian yeast. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, very sweet malty Belgian. A bit too sweet for me.

Pour: pint glass on draft at Chandlers in Petoskey. Didn’t see initial pour but absolutely no head, ring when received and nonlacing while drinking. Dark brown color.

Nose: dark fruit, slight alcohol, maybe some chocolate, but faint.

Taste: dark chocolate and fruit with a toasty malt background. Mild alcohol present but very smooth and easy to drink. Roasted malts come through with a nutty taste.

Mouthfeel: surprisingly little carbonation for a Belgium style. Appeared flat as can be and tasted much the same. Otherwise, decent viscosity and reasonable substantial.

Overall: wasn’t bad but won’t order again and wouldn’t recommend even trying it. To many other better options.

L: Brilliant amber, 1” foam cap, off-white dissipates to thick film. S: not a big nose, slight funk, some caramel to a suggestion of chocolate.T: Fruity, plum, light fruits, grapes, smooth, slight sweetness, some caramel on the finish F: Medium to a little above on the body, medium carbonation. O: A decent beer but a little light on the Belgian yeast flavors – they are there but subdued – may need to ferment at a little higher temperature and use a dose of candi sugar to lighten the body a little.

On tap at HopCats in Grand Rapids.

Pour is dark mahogany with excellent clarity. Small but durable head leaves decent lacing.
The aroma is good but not quite true to style, and presages the taste. It is dominated by sweet and medium roast malts. Some spiciness but very little dark fruit. The taste follows, meaning this is a very Americanized dubbel; it is really much more like an Amer. or Irish red.

Tasting notes 10/26/17
Had on-tap at Iron Bay Grill in Marquette, MI

Appearance - Served up in a classic pint, deep copper red with a thin sheet of sandstone head. Just a few small spots make up the lacing.

Smell - Aroma is Sweet and fruity. Caramel develops as the brew warms.

Taste - Follows the nose. Sweet, fruity and lightly spiced upfront before the brew turns to a solid amount of equal caramel and toffee malt base sitting beneath. Finish hits with a hint of hop bitterness and a long, lingering malt sweetness.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Almost a fluffy texture; makes this a stupid easy drinker with a clean finish.

Overall - Nice flavor, made better by the smooth refreshing body. This is a beer Id drink time and again if it were something I could get my hands on.

Very good beer. Feels and tastes a bit heavy but mild enough to make it easy to drink. Mild hop. Has Mixed flavors that combine very well. Strongly recommend it on tap. Light and day difference when it comes to bottle vs tap.

It's a dubbel, why would you expect a bunch of balancing hops???
