We’re over at Jan and Randy’s for veggieburgers and the baseball game. I’m having a New Belgium Lips of Faith Super Cru.
Super Cru pours ruby-golden with a full, quickfalling head leaving tendrils of lacing. Crisp pearskin on the nose. Sweet and fruity up front, bright and boozy with a quick Fat Tire bitter along the palate. Balanced carbonation, creamy as it rolls across the tongue. Wet finish, with lasting pear essence on the walls of the mouth. A little peach schnapps pucker, but not aggressively bitter. Lacks a little something at the back of the throat.
