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.

Cybercat (3973) - Georgia, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Pours a clear mahogany with a fairly thick light tan head. Aroma is fruity, mainly apple and sour cherry, with a malty underpinning. Flavor has a strong, somewhat sour fruity core, yielding notes of apple, banana and cherry, supported by a malty undertone and more than a hint of greenwood hops. Texture is rather lively and somewhat firm, leaving a sour fruit and greenwood finish. Go wild!

The taste is bitter-sweet, toasty, brown bread, raisin, warming alcohol, raisin, barnyard, spice and earth with a touch of warmth on the finish. Medium+ body and fine carbonation. Decent, but couldn’t drink too much.

Medium sweet flavor with more dried fruits, dried berries, some herbs, a bit of brown sugar. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation.

Very nice. Comes together well with great wild hints of sourness. Some raison and floral hops mixed with berry and I even taste the cinnamon. Finishes sweet and sour. Thanks to Gendv138 for at taste of this at the Churchkey tap feature event.

An interesting take on the dubbel. Thinner than I would’ve thought but it has the dark fruit and candy sugar that’d you’d expect. Sweet and pepper aftertaste.

revolution2718 (344) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Pours a deep red/mahogany with a finger of tan rocky head. Nose is cherry, rich malts, nutty, bread, dark fruits, maybe a bit spiced, maybe cinnamon/clove. Taste is not as good as the nose. Very malty, a bit astringent, a bit of fruit in there. I think it might be oxidized. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wow did New Belgium nail this one. Rich spicy, fruity notes accompany a dark mahogany pour with rapidly dissipating but lingering head. Mouthfeel is malty effervescence in perfect balance with subtle fruits and spice. This is a dubbel that should be enjoyed with spicy food, as its lingering pepper notes really work. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
