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.

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

scoth (640) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Pours clear dark brown with a thin beige head, good retention, very fine lacing. Farmyard aroma with toast, caramel, hay, spice. Medium-light body, velvety, hides alcohol content well. Mildly sweet, medium brett funk, and a gentle bitter finish with some black pepper.

Translucent copper pour, short brownish head. Sweet hard candy nose, burned sugar on the tongue. Not expecting the sweetness, fruity bubblegum. Low carb, could use some balance to the sweet but very drinkable. Somewhat sour finish. Would I drink again? yes. Would I order again? probably not.

Bomber. Nose is wild and yeasty, dirt road, lightly metallic, lots of lightly tart berry, spice, pepper, medium phenol impact. Pours light amber-brown with some pinkish tint, more like a deep bloody under light, with a considerable, foamy tan head with light lace and legs. Taste lightly tart, lightly sweet, but very gentle with both; the yeast character here is great, wild and Bretty, has a horse-and-trail grit, especially at the end, generic berry and ester content with elevated phenols. Dries out extremely, light metal collapses somewhat, bit of soft wheat, lightly scratchy finish with gentle warming only after the initial probing (alcohol is dangerously hidden overall). Light-medium body, not watery, but not malty, either. The Dubbel aspect is rather subtle, very lightly roasty-chocolaty, and takes some searching. Overall, I think the base beer is weak and too weak in the mix, and that the yeast or shisandra, whichever is most responsible for the spice and texture, is at too high a level relative to the grist and struggles to carry the beer by itself; unusual and absolutely worth a try, but I don’t think I’ll be buying it again. [2.9]

Major plus point: not terribly moreish, but you could drink a half-gallon of this an not feel heavy, and ask for more.

Update at the end: man, the Brett makes it totally worth it, once again -- really elevates modest material. [3.4]

Prufrockstar (1696) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle shared by Nick. Clear garnet pour with white head, irregular lacing. Aroma: garbage. Sweet caramel, dough, dark fruits cloves all sitting atop a rotting pail of garbage. Taste: dark fruits ... Moderately sweet, surprisingly dry finish. Clove spice finish. Palate: slick oily texture, medium body, average carbonation. Overall: by "garbage" I don’t mean "infected" -- I mean it smells to me completely unappealing and gross. Just to be clear -- I think this is bad, not necessarily flawed.

The aroma is weak but has nice caramel malt, spice, and fruit. The appearance is brown with a thin head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall not bad and the alcohol is well hidden.

Edmoe (241) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Dark Mahogany with decent head and good lacing. Nice dark fruit aroma. Taste doesn’t match aroma: surprisingly dry with light tanins; pleasant though. Clean finish.
