From Dageraad Brewing in Burnaby BC comes their newest core beer in the “Brune” a Belgian abbey dubbel. The beer pours a deep red brown colour with a brown head. The aroma consists of figs, mild bananas and brown sugar. The flavour is of figs, toffee, brown sugar, mild bitterness and a hint of bananas. Even with an alcohol content of 7.5% this beer does not have much of an alcohol note to it. I don’t know very many Brune that are made in Canada and this one is great. I am glad that this has become one of their standard beers!
Commercial Description: Combining the mission figs once grown by Franciscan monks on this continent with the yeast used by Trappist monks in Europe, Dageraad Brune is our take on a classic Belgian abbey dubbel. Dageraad Brune is refermented in the bottle, so pour with care to leave the yeast sediment in the bottle.
