The beer has a respectable nut-brown color, and a handsome fluffy tan head. Its aroma is not strong, but seems about right. The flavor here is perhaps a bit too subtle for a dubbel (in keeping, arguably, with its restrained ABV), but it is nonetheless distinctive. The mild caramelization of toasted white bread comes to mind, with a hint of cinnamon roll. Even though it doesn’t knock your socks off, it tastes good. Mouthfeel hits the mark: easygoing but refreshing. Not one of this distinguished genre’s heavy hitters, but perfectly OK, and worth a try if it happens to be at hand.

De Lidl. En copa Grimbergen. Estudiando y jugando a Fortnite. Dubbel más tostada de lo habitual sin que ello impida disfrutarla.

Bottle conditioned. 7.4% ABV. Clear rich chestnut in colour. Thin, light tan, dense head.
Smells of caramel, light spicy yeast, dried stoned fruit. Toffee present.
Tastes like a muted representation of the smell. Wort like bitterness to finish.
Softening carbonation. Medium to full bodied.
Improved towards the end.

For being a dubbel I found this beer a little too simple. I was able to appreciate only a very sweet caramel flavour and am sorry to say that after a few minutes after I drank it i can't remember any particular smell. Nice colour and foam, refreshing, I could buy again if I will have the opportunity but it is nothing special

My few 33cl bought in 2021 at Lidl Italy declare an abv of 7,2% and the label is different than this one (just check the official website).
I guess they might have changed the recipe as well.

Dense foam disappearing in a couple of minutes. Lightly carbonated. Thick amber color (the brewery says dark brown).
No noticeable smell except for a smoky aroma.

Tastes like smoky wood, toasted cereals, buttery biscuits, medium bodied and smooth not sweet.
Don't even perceive the abv served at 4°C (lower than the suggested 8°C).

Very good.

A great refreshing dubbel whic, as a bonus, is not sweet as most Belgian beers!
