    Aroma: 8 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 7

    Sharp, musty aroma that is offset by a healthy dose of sugar and honey. Hazy golden-orange body with a large rocky head and thick lacing. Bubbly and filling, strongly carbonated followed by a stinging aftertaste and a hint of cardboard. Candi sugar, Belgian yeast, bread dough, and grassy flavors are somewhat balanced by a green hop presence. Solid strong ale, bordering on a Tripel or vise versa I suppose, who really knows.

    Brew looks dirty yellow with orange hints a very tall white rocky cap with long lasting retention and leaves behind spotty lacing. Sour yeast/wheat aroma with hints of spice. Aroma is standard and uninteresting. Taste is bold and full flavoured with a big heavy well carbonated body. Malts are heavy and made up of dark wheat flavours. Alcohol and a warm spice shows up in the finish. Beer is clean tasting and enjoyable.

    Presentation: Poured from a 330ml/11.2oz bottle in to a tulip glass. Appearance: It has a soft and hazy orange amber color with an outstanding, huge white head. It is thick and foamy with stiff rocky peaks that last forever. Smell: The aroma is fruity with spice and yeast. There are some light hints of alcohol and hops in the background as well. Taste/Mouth feel: the flavor is well balanced with earthy yeast, smooth spices and fruity notes of apple and pear, maybe even a hint of pineapple and sour orange peal. The malts are grainy and doughy and there is a mild hops presence that adds some light bitterness. All of this is wrapped up in a medium body with a lively carbonation. The 8% abv. is well hidden and the finish is fairly dry.

    Pours with a frothy, initially three-finger thick, pale tan colored head. The beer is a clear, slightly orange tinged, copper color and even more so when held up to the light. Sweet and fruity smelling in the nose, but it has a certain note that seems a bit like over-ripe cheese or perhaps even moldy fruit. A touch spicy towards the finish as well, the nose also has some toasty grain character towards the end. The nose is not all that appetizing, though it is certainly interesting.

    Lightly sweet, the beer is surprisingly light and airy. Fruit notes of pear, melon and maybe even a touch of kiwi are accentuated by both the light sweetness and even a touch of yeasty tartness. A bit spicy towards the finish, notes of light pepper morphs into a spicy, pickled ginger & clove note that lingers on the palate after each sip. The rancid cheese note is noticed only a touch up front in the flavor, but it is noticeable. This beer is really quite thin, I feel like it should be a bit more substantial, despite being a fan of light high gravity Belgian beers.

    I just can't shake the analogy of bad cheddar, it is mostly an aromatic component but it definitely influences the flavor as well. This is just not working for me

    Pour was golden orange with a head that was just plain out of control. Aroma of funky yeast and horseblanket. The flavor was citrus and pear with a horsey funk. This is the 3rd in my mixed Belgian sixpack and each one had an out of control head, sour lambic-like flavoring and an overcarbonated mouthfeel. I'm beginning to feel I didn't get such a bargain after all.

    Pours a very clear, failry effervescent light amber/orange color. Strong but loose white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, some sweet and coriander notes. Some alcohol apparent in the nose. Tastes slightly sweet and tart initially, with big fruity flavours and a medicinal touch. Alcohol is noticed, but well balanced with the malt, and a bit of hop bitterness.

    pours a cloudy golden-orangeish colour, with a large thick white head, beautiful lacing, which is like a 3D spiderweb like sticky resinous foam. A sharpe taste of alcohol, aromas of apricots, potatoe chips, and celery. flavors of wheat coriander, spice and couscous.

    Bottled (from beerplanet.eu). Brown colour with a beigeish brown head. Aroma is raisins, sweet malts, some mild burnt sugar as well as mild yeastyness. Flavour is being quite much the same along with some nutty and mild chocolateish notes. Shows some slight alcoholic sweetness, but it also gives some ryelike notes.

    straw coloured with large white head. good lacing. Moderate carbonation except when i took wire cage off and cork flew thirty feet. Easy drinking for 8%, always enjoy this beer. Fruity esters and alcohol shine through. Little maltiness or hop flavour. Still a steal at £1.30 a pop. Was surprised to see this rated as a dubbel

    A very easy drinking dubbel here, I can't say there's much to knock. The aroma is slightly fruity with slight notes of banannas, hops and slightly woody. Appearance was deep gold in color, beautiufl white fluffy head with decent lacing. Mouthfeel was definitely alive and bright with obvious amounts of alcohol present in the burn. Flavors are malty sweetness, small levels of hops present with some dried peaches running around somewhere. Overall an enjoyable beer, and one that I will perhaps buy again. However, it reminded me more of a Belgian Golden Strong Ale than a dubbel.
