While in Fort Collins, we are going to get into another brew from Fort Collins, Colorado, which is New Belgium Brewery. The beer is their Wild (2) Dubbel. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on this brewery, you know the history of New Belgium Brewery. If you did not, please, read those beer blog posts to get to know the 100% employee owned craft brewery. Let us get into the beer.
It has nice dark color with a nice white constant head. The aroma has a sweet candy notes. The taste has a sweet licorice notes with a nice licorice aftertaste. It is a nice sipping beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.newbelgium.com):
Wild2 Dubbel ale, our mahogany-hued autumn ale spiced with schisandra, opens with the floral, earthy notes of fall itself. Schisandra berries, known as “five-flavor fruit,” possess all five flavors: salty, sweet, sour, spicy and bitter. This malt-forward dubbel ale is fermented with a Trappist yeast and finishes dry and slightly sour with a touch of bretta.

Closing out the first night, this was something else. I enjoyed drinking this Belgium Style Dubbel. There is a ton going on with this beer. I know when I had this beer I had a few so if my tasting notes are off. Please, let me know and I will correct. I enjoyed the beer and wanted to share my thoughts on the beer. Every time I sip this beer. I pick up more and more as far as tasting notes and flavors. I picked up candy notes like licorice. However, their website site, talks about salty, sour, etc. You can see that above. The point is this is an awesome beer that New Belgium is brewing. It highly recommend you trying this beer. Please, let me know what you think. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
