Color is hazy amber with a thin layer of fine, light tan bubbles.

Yeast is the dominant smell plus pear and some spiciness, even a light note of coffee.

A gentle sweetness and some dextrins compliment the bready and chocolatey malts in this medium bodied beer.

I'm enjoying this more and more!

Leaves a bit of warmth as a perfect amount of carbonation and an ample hopping finish it off

750ml bottle poured into tulip at ~53F. Batch #97.

A: Deep copper, ample puffy head and good lacing. Slight hazy.

S: Belgian yeast, grassy hops, light caramel.

T: Pretty aggressive hops, reminds me a bit of the style of Allagash White in terms of the deviation from the oringinal. Fairly close to the Ommegang style but not quite as warm and malty, a bit tinnier.

M: Middle of the road in terms of viscosity, pretty acidic with medium carbonation. Easy to drink.

Overall quite impressive brew, not a world class example of the dubbel style though.

Pours a nice reddish amber with a momentary one-finger head.

Nice aroma. Slightly funky Belgain yeast and complex malt aromas.

Decent flavor. Somewhat complex malt character. Toasty malt. Belgian yeast in the middle. And a crisp, clean, bitter finish.

The mouthfeel is not fantastic. Medium bodied, a little on the thin side. But it's hard to tell with so much carbonation. This is a Belgian style beer, so I guess the high carbonation is acceptable.

This beer is pretty decent. Nothing outrageous. A nice representation of the style.
