look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass.

A- Reddish brown body with a light brown/tan head which quickly dissipates. Nice bead.

S-Sweet sugars and raisins and malt.

T-Tastes the way it smells. Not overly sweet with carbonation that is not too strong, but typical for a Belgian style.

M-Refreshing carbonation feel. Malty sweetness. No prevalent hops that I could detect. Nice sweet finish.

O-Not overly impressed but this does not mean it is a bad beer at all. I received this as a gift and I would like to try this again.

From a 12 ounce bottle, no freshness date. Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A: Pours a clear red/amber with very little tan head.

S: Light banana and cloves, Belgian yeast and spices on the nose. Very true to a real Belgian beer.

T: Flavor is really lacking, a bit off even. Slight sweetness of sugar and malts with a slight floral hops at the end. Taste doesn't really match the tongue.

M: Medium bodied with good amounts of fresh carbonation.

O: This hits some marks of a real Belgian, but falls short in comparison to real ones. It's easily available though with a good price.

A: 1 finger off white head. Copper to toffee color.

S: Rich caramel sweet, Belgian yeast and slight soy sauce.

T: Carmel and sweet. Just like it smells. Alcohol is not present in flavor.

M: Nice and full bodied.

O: Good dubbel but I think I'm not the biggest fan of the style. Gotta give it a few more times.

After a horrific episode with Alexander Keith's, I'm going to "dubbel" or nothing with Flying Fish. On to the beer:

Light chocolate brown with smudges of orange mixed in. The head forms ½ inch thick on top, but slowly dwindeles to a small lace. While mild, there is some good in the nose; raisins, vague chocolate, a pleasant fume of alcohol which gives it a wine-like character. There's also a noticable sour character that gives it an aroma similar to vomit.

Some pear and dates to start off the taste. Mild doses of chocolate covered raisin helps stave off mediocrity. The longer the sip, the more chocolatey it becomes. The body is light-medium and flabby.

Not bad, though very run-of-the-mill by dubbel standards.
