A Dubbel Entry in New Belgium’s Lips of Faith

Among the most prolific series in the American craft brewing lineup is New Belgium’s Lips of Faith. The series allows the brewers play, experiment, and even collaborate. Say hello to Wild Wild Dubbel. The Colorado style dubbel is brewed with schisandra, medicinal herb used to cure a variety of remedies (including thirst). This isn’t the first time you’ve seen New Belgium use the herb either. It is on shelves now in Springboard.

A Colorado version of the Belgian dubbed, Wild Wild 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 schisandra berries.

Style: Dubbel (w/ Schisandra)
Availability: 22oz bombers, Draft
Arrival: TBA

8% ABV
