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.

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.
