Terrapin Double Feature

22 oz boxed, foiled and capped bottle into the (appropriate) Chimay chalice.
Typical Dubbel color with a burned orange appearance with a better than average head. Some creamy remnants form on the sides of the glass and on the surface of the beer.
The beer exhibits quite a lot of fruit in the nose and the taste with an emphasis on alcoholic, dry pineapples or peaches. Some marzipan notes as well. The combination of obvious malts and slightly more subtle yeasts drive this beer to a good place and it’s nicely put together. In sheer terms of being “well-brewed”, this is one on Terrapin’s best efforts.
Finish is short.
I like the beer, mainly because it is so clean. Dubbels are a difficult thing for me as they have the potential to become somewhat “muddy” and lose definition. This one holds up well and has the potential to become a more frequent visitor to the Terrapin stable.
