Belgian ‘dubbels’ tend to be strong, dark brown beers. This beer style was inspired by the classic dark abbey beers. Tungri Dubbel is both mild and well-balanced. It re-ferments in the bottle which contributes to its complexity.
Roast malt provides a slightly bitter character, toned down by touches of caramel and coffee. Thanks to the use of selected hop varieties, Tungri Dubbel finishes on quite a zesty note.
You would expect nothing less than a classic beer style like this dubbel from the oldest city in the country.
The Tungri beers are named after the ancient inhabitants of the city of Tongeren, before the arrival of the Romans. Amburon Belgian Craftbrewery has already put the Tungri Blond and the hoppier Tungri Bitter on the beer map.
The brewery draws its inspiration from the rich history of its home city and focuses on multi-layered beers that are there to be enjoyed.
Its location in the Haspengouw region, the orchard of Belgium, explains the interest in fruit beers, their Tungri Kriek for example. All of the Tungri beers are natural and unfiltered and re-ferment in the bottle.
This craft brewery has no plans to confine itself to the standard range; Tungri intends to launch regional and seasonal beers as well as beers matured on wood and beers produced with wild yeasts.
A top-fermented beer, unfiltered, unpasteurised, re-ferments in the bottle.
Tungri Dubbel is brewed with 100% natural ingredients: water, yeast, Magnum, Kent Golding and Lublin hops and roast malt.
Colour & Transparency
Tungri Dubbel is dark brown in colour. It is quite clear but turns slightly cloudier when the yeast is poured out along with the beer.
Tungri Dubbel shows a delicate pearlisation and a robust beige-coloured head.
6-8°C / 42-47°F
The Tungri beers are served in an elegant branded glass that contains 25cl or 33cl. The beer continues to produce lovely bubbles thanks to the engraving on the inside of the glass. It’s up to you whether you drink the yeast that remains at the bottom of the bottle. The taste is slightly different if you drink the yeast along with the beer.
Character, Tastes & Aromas
The roast malt yields a slight bitterness with touches of coffee and caramel.
The carefully selected hop varieties give a subtly zesty character that reverberates in the finish.
Tungri Dubbel is highly recommended to pair up with cheese, game dishes and chocolate desserts.

As with all beers it's up to you to experiment freely with this dubbel; both beside the plate or as an ingredient when cooking...
Keeping and Storage
Tungri Dubbel will keep for at least 24 months. Bottles should be stored in an upright position in a dark and cool place.
This ensures that the yeast remains at the bottom and your beer stays clear.
This not a beer to be aged endlessly so enjoy it within the time period advised by the brewer.
Bottle ✔ On Tap ✔
Tungri Dubbel is available in 33cl bottles or from the tap (20l kegs).
Although still a young enterprise the Tungri beers are quickly finding their way across Belgium and beyond. As one of the owners is also a third generation beer trader this will come as no surprise. Look out for Tungri Dubbel via the usual channels, from specialised beer cafe's to off-licenses..
