Equinox

750 mL capped and corked from Duke’s package up on US-41 in Marietta, GA, USA. Green, heavy glass with a champagne dimpled bottom.
Dark brown, hazy pour with a decent amount of head and lace.
VERY Dubbel like as opposed to BSDA, and lacks the sweetness and fruity nature of a typical beer from the style. Lots of yeast sediment in the final pour from the bottle.
Quite bland in the grand scheme of things and lacks any winter spice element or significant Belgian yeast tastes. Distinct lack of Belgian candy notes. Even go as far as to say this is really quite dry and bitter in the finish. A touch of tanin in there too. Alcohol well hidden but too hoppy for the style.
Not my favorite, especially considering the style, in fact I might even go as far as to say disappointing. Far too many superior Belgians out there to get exctited about buying this one again.
