Bornem Dubbel Double

Bornem Dubbel
Dubbel Abbey style

Ratebeer 3.32 76th percentile
Beer Advocate B

Taste +2

It is rather light tasting for a Belgian, but then it is only a double. The head is huge, long lasting and disperses a slightly acidic nose of digested fruits. The taste is rather subdued only the slightest of plum, raisins and sour cherry flavours peek though the malty fog.

Aftertaste +1

The lingering is rather short-lived but slightly sweet in a balsamic vinegary way.

Alcohol Content +1 8%

Oddly you can't really pick it out.

Value 0

There are better Belgians out there.

Ingame Enhancement 0

After downloading some old-school Bandai games like Ms Pac-man and Galaxian, I realized that I was using the most powerful gaming system to play 8-bit video game from the 80's.
Overall 4/10

This beer was alright, but it just lacked the super flavours of an abbey style Belgian
