Daisen G Beer Dubbel is a 7.5% dubbel from Kumezakura Shuzo based in Tottori, Japan. It’s part of their autumn / winter seasonal lineup and can be found mostly in bottles, though more than likely can also be found on tap. Daisen G Beer Dubbel is brewed using imported French Barbe Rouge hops, and the inspiration behind the beer came from a trip the brewers took to Belgium.
Daisen G Beer Dubbel Aroma and Taste
Daisen G Beer Dubbel poured out a brownish black colour with a slightly off-white frothy head on top, which collapsed quickly to a a oily layer of bubbles on top, with the outer ones clinging to the side of the glass. It had a rich malt aroma that was slightly medicinal phenolic, supposedly an ok aroma in Belgian dubbels apparently, that was paired up with a spicy kick of cherries and chocolate also coming through once Daisen G Beer Dubbel had warmed up.
Joe really does have a copyright on this word but gloopy would be a great word to describe the way Daisen G Beer Dubbel sits in the glass. It had a rich caramel flavour to it with a clean finish that veered towards a boozy finish once it had warmed up. It was suitably carbonated and was nice from start to finish. If there was a downside to Daisen G Beer Dubbel, then I would say as it’s sweet, I doubt I would drink more than one or two of them in one sitting.
Daisen G Beer Dubbel The Bottom Line
Japan isn’t known for Belgian dubbels and with Daisen G Beer Dubbel, Japan may have found its first good one. It may be no Chimay or Westmalle, but it’s still worth trying if you come across it.
