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.
The first Lips of Faith releases in 2013 are now arriving. Heavenly Feijoa Tripel, a collaboration with Montreal’s Dieu du Ciel! is ready to kick off your new year. Heavenly is brewed with Coffee cherries, dates, feijoa and hibiscus.
Heavenly Feijoa Tripel combines Dieu du Ciel!’s love of hibiscus flowers with New Belgium’s passion for strange and worldly fruit. Feijoa, also known as pineapple guava, has a sweet, aromatic flavor, which makes the aroma of Heavenly Feijoa Tripel luscious and tropical. The beer has Belgian yeast and Nelson Sauvin hops, combining to make a sweet fruit taste, mild spicy tones and a sharp bite. Hibiscus adds a cranberry tartness and an ambrosial quality to the color.
