Dubbel Duck – Update

Posted by Jeff on October 5, 2009

Saturday I transferred Dubble Duck from a secondary to keg.  While transferring I gave it a little taste…

The overly spicy, yeasty flavors are gone now, which is good.  It was quite overpowering to start.  Unfortunately, the yeast I used seems to be the type that has a real earthy, dirt like flavor.  Not a flaw, just a particular flavor that you get in some Belgians.

I don’t like it.

Right now it tastes like drinking moss.

I”m hoping the carbonation helps and that some more time will help meld in some other flavors.  It’s a good beer, for a Belgian, just not to my tastes.  We’ll see how it turns out.  Should be ready to drink in November.
