New Belgium Assistant Brewmaster Grady Hull: “The Lips of Faith series was created for those wanting to push their palate.”
Coming in the second quarter this year is Pluot to New Belgium’s Lips of Faith series. The beer is brewed with the juice of a pluot – an apricot/plum hybrid.
Cross pollinate your tastebuds with Belgian imagination and you’ll be sipping this ale while visions of pluots dance in your head. Pluots? A hybrid of apricots and plums that impart a subtle sweetness. Ferment that with a wild Belgian yeast strain and you have a fruity yet spicy nature with a body reminiscent of red wine. Delicious.
Style: Belgian Ale (w/ Pluot Juice)
Availability: 22oz bottles, Draft.
