New Belgium Le Fleur, Misseur? Ale

New Belgium Brewing, Fort Collins, CO
Le Fleur, Misseur? Ale, Lips of Faith Series
New World Belgian Ale
6.2% ABV
22 oz. into snifter

New Belgium’s “Lips of Faith” series is their “brewer’s playground,” a place to turn out smaller batches of higher-end, imaginative, experimental beers.

Wild yeasts (Brettanomyces) make this beer a real pleasure. Glorious “off” scents of pineapple noodle the nose, mingling with more typically Belgian orange aromas. A mild, but non-trivial, bite of Lemon Pledge and clove tickle the tongue.

It reminds Perry of Country Time Lemonade, but with more hops and less sweetener.

  1. Pledge? Country Time? Trivially nasty sounding.
