(Semi-)Recent Brew: Belgian Dubbel

Meanwhile, over at Up the Creek Brewing comes this Belgian dubbel. Actually it was brewed up late last fall, but I have been negligent in posting updates in this department!
This was one of Mr. Beer’s seasonal all malt brew kits. Basically just mix the can of Belgian Style Dubbel HME with water, boil, add dry ale yeast, and let the little micro-organisms do their thing. Yum!

As you can see, I blended the racing theme into this project by incorporating a vintage Spa Francochamps racing poster image into my label. Hey, it needed a touch of the Belgique somehow.

Honestly, this wasn’t my favorite batch of home brew. It had a bit too much twang to it, though it has mellowed out slightly with age and tastes better now than it did at Christmas time.
