New Belgium "Lips of Faith - Super Cru"
New Belgium Brewing Company - Fort Collins, Colorado USA
Belgian Strong Ale (ABV 10%)

[Best served in a Trappist glass]

Rating: 3.0/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 11/20

The pour was a medium orange with a slight brown hue and a small (less than 1 finger) white fizzy head that was dissipated rapidly to just a few puddles of residue and had some streaky lacing.

The aroma was of straw malts, grassy hops and a moldy doughy yeast with notes of caramel, a bit of fruitiness and a nice dose of alcohol.

The taste was a little bland yet still sweet and a tad acidic with a decent caramel note in the beginning and finished a bit malty and fruity with a mild alcohol tinge at the end. The flavor lasted a decent amount of time after the swallow, leaving behind a slight fruitiness and a strong alcohol flavor.

Mouthfeel was somewhere between light and medium in body with the texture being oily and a bit watery with a mild carbonation.

Overall a very mild tasting Belgian Ale, which was a little astringent, a bit fruity and had a strong alcohol presence.
