22 oz bottle.
A nice, well-balanced dubbel with a seemingly rather minimal impact from the figs although there is a load of dark fruit flavor here.

O: recommended

Pours an effervescent orange-hued brown with a pinky of tan head, Stellar lacing above average head retention

S: Faint breadyness, figgyness

T: Follows the nose some rubberband, plus a little dryness. plus a little herbal & woody hops up front. Herbal & woody hops mixes with green apple & faint raisin notes as this warms. Finishes with a little fig, raisin, woodiness & just a little candi sugar, a little rubberband

MF: Medium body, slight carbonation that picks up as it warms

A pretty good shot at the style, not quite there, but would recommend this to a person checking out the style, if they they couldn't access the standard Belgians that define the style

Clear copper colored pour with a minimal head. Aroma of figs and candy sugar. Taste follows the nose with fig and candy sugar flavors, but can also taste caramel and bread flavors.

First had poured from 22-oz. bomber, gift from friend, into goblet. Part of Wiseacre's Belgique d’Epoque series, Holy Candy has rather low ABV for a Dubbel, a mild malt backbone and fades a bit in the finish.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

medium amber appearance, small offwhite head.

smell: some malts and caramel, strong fruit/fig

taste: intitially ok although not very complex. Then finish has a slightly sour fermented taste that to my palate is distinctly unpleasant. I've had many Belgian style dubbels and quads with dried fruits and other flavorings. This is a drainpour.
