Cascara Quad is one of two Lips of Faith offerings New Belgium launched here in early 2013. The quad uses dates and coffee cherries (the fruit of the coffee bean). Look for this and the collab with Dieu Du Ciel!, on shelves.
Cascara Quad is a dark, strong and surprisingly delicate ale made with dates and coffee cherries.Channeling the Trappist tradition, it’s brewed with an ethereal malt bill, and spiced with the fruit of the coffee bean (cascara). The aroma brings dates, cherries and pipe tobacco right to the nose and builds layers with hints of spice and fruity Belgian yeast. Once on the palate, Cascara Quad starts swinging clove, fig and molasses. Each sip offers sweet warmth, deep complexity and fleeting dryness.
