The off white head sits atop the mahogany coloured Belgian style Dubbel; just beautiful. Go on. Take a picture. Aromas of spicy doughiness (Belgian yeast), raisins, plum and a touch of caramel lead you into your first sip. Sweet up front (brown sugar and light molasses) with notes of rye bread, ripe dates and cherries mid palate. Slight phenolic (pepper) notes, soft bitterness, medium-high carbonation, yet smooth and full bodied; Body Dubbel offers a taste of Belgium right here in Etobicoke.
To keep up with Gordie’s increasingly demanding schedule, marketing hired this scrawny Belgian dude.
Gordie was not impressed.
