Preface this with:  I LOVE Belgian beers.

I was lucky enough to tour around Belgium in 2000 and what more can you say about a country that serves waffles and beer in the afternoon??

This beer was a lovely ruby colour with a great head.  Lots of notes of caramel and musky notes.  Sweet start with a bite of sour.  Very drinkable at such a high ABV!

Bornem Dubbel 7% ABV, 330ml

Bornem Dubbel


I love these small 330ml bottles.

One more Belgian beer from the LCBO holiday gift pack.

About the Beer – It poured a yellow/blond colour with a massive head.  The aroma was very tart on the nose with hits of citrus fruit.  the flavor followed the nose with VERY tart start followed by a bit of soap and a big lemon citrus finish.

Would I Drink it Again? – No, I am pretty sure this one was off slightly.

India Pirate Ale?

Another bottle from the LCBO Belgian Holiday 6 pack!

About the Beer – It poured a foggy gold colour with a nice white head.  The nose is a bit sour mixed with banana and spices.  The flavour was quite sour with a melon, resin, and alcohol mix.

Would I Drink It Again? – Sure, it is an interesting beer.

Beer #2 from the LCBO holiday mixed pack.

I have always loved the packaging of this beer!  No sunlight is going to spoil this baby!

About the Beer – It poured a foggy reddish-brown colour with a great head.  The aroma was of liquorice, plum, heavy malt, Belgian esters, and alcohol.  Strong on the alcohol.  The flavour was of sweet caramel, raisin, peat smoke, and tobacco.  The tobacco really came out as it warmed up.  A much better beer the warmer it got.  There was a bit of sour in the aftertaste as well.

Would I Drink it Again? – Yes, this is a good beer but a definite slow sipper!

I am a sucker for a mixed Belgian 6 pack!

Like I said, I am a sucker for a Belgian holiday mixed pack.  Every year around Christmas the LCBO has this pack or a similar one and I seem to pick it up every time.  Sometimes there is a slight variation to the beers but I believe that this pack was exactly the same last year.

About the Beer – I did not review this one.  My general impression was that this was a nice beer but a bit weak for what I was looking for.  It does get some good review’s on BA though.

Would I Drink it Again? – Since I seem to grab this special release pack every year I would have to say yes!
