Affligem Dubbel

Type: belgian ale
Origin: Opwijk, Belgium
Price: $6.99 per 750 mL

After having the Tripel a few months ago, it was about time I tried the Dubbel. Being kind of a novice beer drinker, it is hard to truly know what a Dubbel or Tripel is supposed to be like until you have ones from the same company. The best way to describe the Dubbel is that it is a subdued version of the Tripel. Less alcohol, less hops, less wheaty citrus flavors. It is still a damn fine, well balanced beer. This one did however start to show off some malted flavors that were overpowered in the Tripel.
