Pours a nice straw colored blond with lasting, frothy, white head. Light but pleasant aroma of malt, fruit and faint Belgian yeast spicyness. Silky mouth feel, very well balanced between malt and fruit flavors until a bitter finish.
Poured a dull brown with a nice beige head. Sweet aromas of malt, caramel fig and fruit. Initially sharp on the tongue but overall fairly mild. Predominantly sweet fruit flavors then bitterness takes over. One would think the sweetness and bitterness would balance out, but no. Label may say bruin but this is a dubbel by another name.
