Okay, thanks to Wikipedia, I'm now armed with a working knowledge of Schizandra.

A: Poured a poo brown color, fairly clear, and with a slight 1/4 finger head.

S: Weird, weird, weird. Almost like a brown ale with added Brett and tree bark.

T: I got a little sour kick on the end, which was kinda fun in its own right. This reminded me of a Dubbel I had 2-3 years ago at Goose Island Clybourne. They had a Dubbel with Brett on tap. The funkiness cut through the brown sugar in spades and made that Belgian yeast strain its bitch.

M: Right on point: A tinge of carbonation, but not too much and with some slippery bubbles that fell back into the glass.

O: Not a big dubbed fan, but New Belgium pulled it off.

3.29/5  rDev -9.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Deep crimson red pour, strange for a dubbel, with a one finger beige head that quickly gave way to a thin beige ring around the beer. Minimal lacing on the glass.

Smell: Raisins, earth tones, figs, strange cherry notes, a spicy scent I can't describe.

Taste: This is where the beer went sideways to me, at least in a style sense. Sweet figs and raisins with coffee tones in the front of the drink with just the lightest kick of hop spice in the middle. The finish is a mix of cherries with an earthy aftertaste that seems to linger. There is no hint of trappist or belgian yeast here. This is the strangest tasting dubbel I have ever tried.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation, the carbonation feel seemed to increase as the drink warmed. Still easy drinking and with the alcohol notes hidden so well it would be a dangerous session beer.

Overall: Not by any means a bad beer, just not true to the advertised style. I like the beer and will have again.
