COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This wild Colorado version of the Belgian Dubbel ropes you in with clove and dark fruit aromas. Deeply rich and malty, every sip has a creamy texture true to Belgian tradition before it rides off with hints of black pepper and cinnamon from the addition of shisandra berries.

Thanks Adrien for bringing this one out. bomber, split 5 ways. pours a dark mahogany. smells pretty funky. a little bathwater smell but earthy, mulch like and sweet. Explosive mouthfeel. Berry / fruit up front. finish is peppery, doughy, bread-like. not sour, jus a little funky.

A pale brown beer. Can’t say too much about the foam. Sour red berries, pepper and tiny notes of bready yeast on the nose. Flavours are kind of the same ivided up into three parts. The middle part is a punch of umami/blackpepper/cinnamon. A cool kick that is really! It is sweet, smokey. Complex. Awesome, without beeing too good!

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2015 More wild ale than dubbel, smells of Brett and the taste is reminiscent of it too. Little bits of dubbel sweetness but mostly dry Brett characteristics, some berry notes and barnyard funk in there. Great beer but should be labeled as a wild ale much more than a dubbel

Pours clear medium amber with one finger of beige head, excellent retention and lacing. (5/5) Nose is funky hay and brett, caramel malt, dark fruit, cinnamon. (8/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter, mild tart. (7/10) Medium slightly thin body, moderate carbonation, off-dry mild bitter finish. (4/5) Smells great and tastes OK - but the taste is actually a bit of a disappointment, after the smell. It smells a bit like an oude bruin, with some vinegar tartness and wild yeast aroma, but then the taste falls a bit short and the body comes across a little thin. The black pepper spiciness on the finish is nice, though, so that’s good. All things considered, it’s pretty darned good - but it feels like it could’ve been so much more. (15/20)

(On tap at VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Jan 23 2014) Clear deep cola with big fluffy off-white head and carpet of lace. Aroma of caramel malt, wet hay, lightly toasted, spice box, weird fruity berry note too. Palate has the caramel core of a dubbel with cinnamon and bread but also a barnyard hay and Brett character, becoming quite bitter on the finish with black pepper spiciness. I think there is this shisandra berry thing going on in the aftertaste, since there’s a fruitiness I can’t place and I’ve never had a schisandra berry. Really dry at the end which is odd for a dubbel, but not bad. Lightish body and soft carbonation, not that thick and malty for the style. An interesting twist on what isn’t always my favourite style, worth trying though I may not have it again.

Brown pour, tan head. Really cool beer! A neat mix of a belgian beer and a funky wild ale. Yeasty, fruity, caramel, bread. Tasty!
