New Belgium Wild² (Lips Of Faith Series)
New Belgium Wild² is a Belgian style Dubbel brewed with schisandra or “five-flavor fruit” (This fruit is said to have all five flavors: salty, sweet, sour, spicy and bitter). Getting nice dark fruit sweetness, ripe plums and raisins. This is complimented by a lot of clove and cinnamon spiciness, presumably coming from the schisandra berries. The finish is kinda dry, almost like a beer with an oak barrel treatment. The name is a bit misleading, no real funkiness and certainly not sour. I’m a fan of their year round Dubbel, and this drinks like a spicier version of that. Very enjoyable.
