New Belgium is always  coming up with new, inviting beers, and this summer has been no exception.  Here’s what our “beer guy,” Matt, had to say about three of their most recent offerings.  Look ’em over, and see which you might fancy for closing out the season in style. Cheers!

Eric’s Ale

Wood Aged Sour Peach Ale

2015 Lips of Faith Series

Nose
Malty upfront with tart peach coming through in the end.
Taste
None of the overwhelming tartness one can expect from a typical Sour Beer. Almost more of a Sweet & Tart taste. Oak pairs nicely with the peach flavors.
Finish
Smooth finish with notes of peach that lingers.
Recommendation
Holds true to the description of being “this is a sour beer for those that don’t like sour beers”
A good place to start to enjoy the Sour beer family. Grab a Pint the next time you are visiting the Brewery or you can find them in local stores by using the link below.

Long Table Farm House Ale

Saison
Nose
Malty upfront with yeasty goodness on the nose
Taste
Malty fruitiness that transitions to a bit of a spicy zest due to Rye grains.
Earthiness throughout and tart apple at the end.
Finish
Smooth bread finish that lingers and invites another sip.
Recommendation
Grab a Pitcher with friends. A perfect beer to help the transition from Summer to Autumn.

Pear Ginger Beer

2015 Lips of Faith Series

Nose
Citrus with a bit of ginger notes
Taste
Not your traditional ginger beer as it lacks a lot of the spiciness.
More of a bitter rind wheat flavor with little pear notes throughout.
Finish
Ginger spice does linger after the first taste. Smooth finish with notes of peach that lingers.
Recommendation
It’s a shame that I was unable to sync up with our team to try out some of the Ginger Beer recipes found on our site. If mixed right, I could see that this Ginger Beer adding some good flavors to a late summer drink. I would recommend a Taster before jumping in an using this Pear Ginger Beer for your next gathering.
