An interesting beer. It almost seems like a cross between a dunkelweizen and a Belgian ale. All the characteristics I would expect to see: clove, banana, yeasty esters. Only a minimal amount of candy sugar on the back. The nose was a turn off at first, but this turned out to be a nice one. A nice pleasant drinker.

Pours a crimson hued brown with a pinky of cream colored head. Above average lacing & average head retention

S: Plums, cinnamon & red hots candy, plus funk once warm

T: Follows the nose, a touch of leafy hops & funk up front. Funk picks up once warm, more cinnamon, a bit of leafy hops & oaky dryness, a bit of green bananas. Finishes dry, oaky with a fruity kiss of plums, persimmons & cinnamon

MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation

Drinks easy, not mind blowing, but enjoyable. If you want mucho funk or hate cinnamon, this is not your beer I'm betting..

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
