Pours out really dark brown at first and seems black when you get the glass full, Really nice brownish-white head about two and a half fingers with really good retention. Smell is your typical Belgian yeast with bananas and cloves -- really no hops in the nose and some sweet malts to be sure. Taste is much like the nose. Pretty sweet with likely Belgian sugars. Mouthfeel is decently thick. I guess it is what I would expect. Overall a pretty good beer.. Thanks Lauran. Nothing that will blow your socks off but pretty good all the same. Certainly tastes like a Belgian but not as good as a true Belgian to be sure, That being said I really like this beer.

Shared a bottle with my beer nerd pals on a nice Memorial weekend closure on the deck.

Appearance is a dark brown with slight purple tint. Smell is what I love. The infamous horse blanket / barnyard smell is in full effect here. The smell really got me excited for this beer.

The taste was solid but a little bit of a let down. It was extremely funky but nothing really blowing me away here. Not really sour or tart at all. Solid Belgian style beer with noticeable funk.

Overall this was a decent wild ale and was at a good price point on sale ($8.99). Worth under $10 a bottle if you can find it.

Wild Dubbel 2 – Ale Brewed with Schisandra (8%) - New Belgium Brewing Co. (Colorado)
☆☆☆☆

App: Pours a gorgeous, sanguine red. Two finger reddish-tan head rises and falls rapidly, leaving splotchy lacing with a ring stuck to the liquid level. An enticing looking beer.

Smell: Slightly bright and medicinal, with hints of sassafras and winter green. Some notes of dried fruit, specifically fresh prunes. Some pulpy, fig like notes in the background. Probably from the Schisandra. Smells pretty fungal.

Taste: Pleasantly sweet on the foretaste. More berry like than in the smell. Malt is caramelly with hints of darker color malt, perhaps chocolate. What really shines here though is the Schisandra, which has a massive flavor like pomegranate, mint, sassafras, ginseng, and a slight root like spiciness. Hints of cinnamon and clove. Tastes a little poisonous. Alcohol is present. Hops are minimal, what bitterness there is is slight and lingering, which does seem to help kill the wallop from the Schisandra. Yeast is present and very complementary, with lots of belgian funk. Some hints of banana long after swallowed.

Mouth: Creamy and pretty heavy bodied. It's not syrupy however and drink pretty easy. Elevated alcohol level lends slight warmth that plays well with the natural spice of the berry.

Home tasting, 22oz Bomber into Snifter. 1/17/14
