Westmalle Dubbel is a dark red-brown beer with a rich, complex taste thanks to re-fermentation in the bottle. You will pick up touches of caramel, malt and fruity esters reminiscent of ripe banana. The beer pearlises beneath a covering of dense, cream-coloured froth. A lovely lace pattern forms on the inside of the glass once emptied. The long dry finish of this balanced, mild trappist beer will stay with you.
