Big Ideas Series 15 – Dubbel Date – Simple Things Fermentations
A brown Dubbel in the Belgian style with the trademark fruity Abbey Ale flavour profile and fortified with Iranian dates in the kettle.
An inviting tawny brown beer with a tight creamy head and unmistakably Belgian aroma, unctuous honey and vanilla sweetness and a big hit of banoffee pie. If you hover over the glass the malt bill is all there in front of you, along with a hint of liquorice from the Iranian Sayer dates. It’s soft and honey-like on the palate, balanced with moderate bitterness and floral/citrus sharpness from the Celeia and Perle hops. Sweetshop candy with notes of plums and banana hit the spot and give way to a lingering fruity, cereal, honey-nut baklava finish.
