Original notes 03/18/06
Part of the mixed, Kapittel four pack. Attractive pale blue cap on the 330 mL bottle.
Muddy brown appearance with a very distinct Dubbel look. Head is a little too carbonated and thin for my liking, but it settles down to give a creamy and spotty film on the surface.
Aroma is a little sweet malt and some fruitiness, but it’s all pretty subdued.
Tastes are round and fruity with a little Belgian dry character, but not what I would call complex by any stretch of the imagination.
Short finish with a minimal aftertaste.
Very drinkable, but it is because it is really a very simple beer. Alcohol is very well hidden to the point of being a little disappointing.
I would classify this as a solid Belgian, but it lacks the complexity of many other similar beers.
