Gouden Carolus Noël / Christmas

750 mL corked and caged.

Delicious and absolutely typical with one major exception – the appearance, especially the color. It was disappointing to me. It resembled one of the nasty, murky dirty water Dubbels that haunt me. Delicious head with an off-white solid foam forming tha moves with the beer. Lots of retentionand lacing it shows class.

Outside of the look all the dark fruits, alcohol and Belgian yeasts were present in abundance jus as expected. Multi-facetted layers of plums, figs, raisins and sugars are backed up by the Belgian yeast and the alcohol. It flows to the extent that it almost becomes something you can gulp down – I find myself picking up the glass time and time again.

Close to perfection in all categories except the color and appearance, but I can live with that.
