The Bottom Line

This Belgian ale is rich and smooth and a bit on the sweet side. With none of the sourness that is often present in Belgium's best beers, I would call this a great starter beer for anyone just getting to know Belgian ale.

Pros

  • Rich, full flavor

Cons

  • A bit too sweet for my taste

Description

  • Nice, easy to drink double ale
  • Good "starter beer" for those just getting to know Belgian ales
  • 6.5% ABV

Guide Review - Tasting Notes and Review of Grimbergen Double Ale

The beer pours dark amber and slightly hazy in the glass. The medium head is dense and tan and leaves a decent lacing. The nose is rich and packed with notes of molasses and grain. It tastes sweet with molasses and currant notes and exhibits a medium mouthfeel. There is very little balancing hops though a bit of bitterness shows up as the end of the taste and prevents the otherwise sweet beer from becoming cloying.
