New Belgium Announces New Sour, Collaboration

New Belgium officially announced the next two beers in their Lips Of Faith Series: Tart Lychee and The Lost Abbey Collaboration.

Tart Lychee – Brewed with lychee fruit, and blended into a barrel aged sour beer.   It’s brewed with pale malt, caramel-80, carapils, malted wheat and oats, then spiced with lychee fruit and a touch of cinnamon. The hazy orange Tart Lychee begins with bold, tropical aromas and ends with a sharp, dry finish. 7.5% ABV

The Lost Abbey Collaboration Brett Beer – The two breweries love of brettanomyces (wild, funky yeast) unites the 2 in this beer.  Tomme Arthur flew out to Ft Collins, Colorado to brew with New Belgium’s Peter Bouckaert.  In turn, Peter flew out to Lost Abbey’s San Marcos, California home.  Target, Centennial, & Sorachi Ace hops combined with the brett yeast give the beer a citrus & pineapple flavor with a funky/sour edge.  7.5% ABV

Look for Tart Lychee on shelves now, Brett Beer in May.

Availability: Draft, 22 oz bombers.
