Brownish colour with a thin thread of white as opposed to some head. Some yeast aroma and alcohol. Medium plus mouthfeel, and understated carbonation. Like a brown beer with some yeast, or a so-so brune. Dry aftertaste, not unpleasant.Via Bieropholie buying club.

Bottle: Poured a deep brown cloudy color ale with a big foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of dry caramel malt with light spices. Taste is also dominated by some caramel malt notes with some spicy yeast elements also discernable. Full body with some great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not bad but more like a middle of the road Belgian ale slightly liking character.

'Nature beer, unfiltered and unpasteurized'. That's how I like it.

Dulle Griet, the nickname the town of Gent gave to their town's canon, says the label.
Dulle griet also translates to something like 'crazy girl'.

Dark red-brown ale, rather thin head, but decent lacing.

Smell and taste are malty and sweet. Hints of dark fruit and sugar. All in all a fairly standard dubbel.

Clean aftertaste. Bittersweetness that's gone quickly. Refreshing carbonation.

Well drinkable. It's a very traditional dubbel.
No complaints from me.

Enjoyed on 3/3/11 in an Snifter glass. Pours dark amber color. Crown is beige in color, dense & lasting. Malty aroma in nose, hops aromas not shown. Gentle & dry sweet flavor, almost non-exist bitterness. Coffee notes in mouth & subtle cocoa on the aftertaste, also oak hints are present. Medium body, easy drinkability.

This is one of the last Schelde beers in line, I had most of the others and this is one of my least favorite.

A murky brown beer with a creamy, collapsing head.

Smell is acidic, like an infection. The caramel and dark malts give the impression of cherries and the smell of a robust red wine. Some would call this Rodenbach like, but I don't think this is intentional (in this case).

Taste is acidic with cherries, a light dark chocolate and caramel taste make the beer pretty complex. Again the red wine-like taste that is not bad, but is not the way the beer should be.

This is my fourth infected beer in a row and I would like to see a 'clean' beer for a change.

BB 06-06. Nice poorout with overwelming head, beige colored and leaving laces. Darkbrown almost black beercolor and some particles.
Nose is very cherrielike reminding of Rodenbach. Very carramellic, some browncandysugar hinst also giving a litle almont like nose. Taste is good also; full malty, carramellic, sour cherries with aftertaste that's litle roasted and nicely bittered. Feels good in mouth with good carbonisation and still some "thickness" in the brew. Good beer worth a try but beers from this brewery seem not always got to have the same quality.

I got this bottle for my 55th birthday from Roy. I know this brewery a bit. They are located very near the Dutch border on an industrial compound. Next to the brewery they have a big beershop.

Now about the beer. Poured in my small Struise glass the beers starts really nice....but only for a short while. The head disappears fast leaving a small ring. Dark tea like fluid. Smells a bit sour but that is something i did not get in the taste (happily!).

Taste is rather flat with hardly any hints. Very little sweetness. Next beer!

A one-finger dark tan head sits atop a dark brown murky-looking body. The retention is minimal, giving way quickly to scant lacing.

Smelling of toffee, plums and overall dark breadiness, this beer is very inviting on a cold rainy day.

The taste is mostly sweet, with notes of caramel, plum, grape skins, and hints of coffee. The medium carbonation and overall substantial malt profile make this chewy, maybe even a bit on the syrupy side. The possible cloying nature of the sweetness is mitigated by a small degree of astringency.

Although not outstanding, given the possibility that this beer might be found in large supply, I would readily have it as a go-to Dubbel.

Well done.
