On tap at the brewery. Much lighter in color than a traditional dubbel; almost copper colored. Good lacing, decent head retention.

Lots of fruit in the nose, with pears, plums, bananas, and an almost hefewezien-like bubblegum aspect. These notes also emerge in the taste, combining with strong fruitcake spiciness, moderate sweetness, and a low underlying bitterness. Very fruity.

Somewhat unconventional take on the style, but very tasty. Reminded me of a dark wheat beer with that banana and bubblegum flavor, combined with the darker, heavier fruits and spices you’d find in a dubbel. Worth a shot.
