Putting this months packs together, I had the thought that we don’t really include that many Dubbels.  The style is a staple in most Belgian brewery portfolios, and there is always at least one Dubbel on tap in your average Belgian bar.  So regretting not having sourced more Dubbels, I’m please to include Postel’s in this months pack.

Postel was an abbey beer label, produced in its own right from 1953 to 1988, at which time is was bought my the Alken-Maes brewing company.  The Affligem Brewery then continued to produce this Postel beers, and was itself acquired by Heineken in 2000, with the beers still produced to this day. 

Potentially good news in a topical conversation with a couple of recent acquisitions of Aussie breweries by the big players!

This is your classic Belgian dubbel, with a big dark fruit and yeasty aroma, and that beautiful brown body with a thick white foam.  Lots of dark, ripe stone fruits like raisins and prunes, caramel, lightly toasted malts, a moderate hop bitterness with a herbal, spicy aftertaste.
