Maredsous 8 Dubbel (Duvel Moortgat, Breendonk-Puurs, Belgium)

Maredsous Dubbel was my wife's mainstay draft at Triple Rock Social Club over the years, so sharing this bottle on a Friday night.

Large, rocky light brown head that lingers through the first half of the beer.  Yeasty nose on top of dark fruit, cherry, caramel, malt and a slight funkiness that grows with warmth.  Heavy dark fruit and malt continues in the taste though the body is a little thin.  Yeasty funk isn't as strong on the tongue as the nose, but blends well.

Included  in the Spring Fever basket, this is a good beer that's a small stretch with enough yeasty twang to make it interesting.  Smooth and easy drinking beer that's like meeting an old friend.
