This weeks Tipple is Bornem Dubbel.
I last tried this monastic style double beer around three to four years ago.
It came as an unexpected Christmas gift.
Last weekend, my girlfriends grandfather came bearing a bottle of this stuff as well as a Piraat (10.5%).
Little did he know that I am not drinking at the moment but that familiar blue & yellow label brought back some nice memories.
I will let you in on a secret. Belgian beers are not always my cup of tea but this brew, smashes most of the competition to pieces.
Bornem Dubbel is a dark oak, classic Belgian brew.
It pours copper.
At 7.2% you’ll be surprised at how drinkable this stuff is.
No beer with that volume of alcohol should be so enjoyable.
Dubbel is malty, exciting & sharply sweet.
Available from all good bottle shops in Budapest.
