pompton lakes: New Belgium Special Tapping is happening at Amazing Grapes
John from Amazing Grapes said on July 22 2016 from 06:00 pm to 11:00 pm
We will be tapping a Keg of New Belgium’s Lips of Faith Series Tart Lychee & Blue Paddle Pilsner (Only 6 kegs for the County & we got 1)
According to Lauren, the imaginator of this pucker-pleasing ale, Lychee fruit is so insanely sweet and flavorful you almost can’t stand it alone. Sour to the rescue! Tart Lychee is brewed with exotic lychee fruit and cinnamon, and then blended with sour Felix from our wood cellar for a citrusy, tropical sip that attacks with an invigorating tart bite. Explore the tropics, but brace for the wild.
Get a behind-the-scenes look at how we make Tart Lychee.
VISUAL: A foggy, glowing golden straw hue with nice white foam.
AROMA: A blend of peach, apricot, green apple, lemon, white grape, some woody notes, vanilla, strawberry, grapefruit, orange, subtle floral and funk.
FLAVOR: Sourness up front is quickly met with fruity sweetness and a mild bitterness, and finishes with a mild sourness.
MOUTHFEEL: Starts puckering and mouthwatering, with some coating sweetness in the middle, and finishes quite dry
A blend of 50% wood-aged sour Felix with 50% golden cinnamon lychee lager.
Blue Paddle Pilsner:
Climb on in and grab a paddle. Our first foray into lagers, BLUE PADDLE PILSENER-LAGER BEER is a Czech style pilsener with a refreshing crispness from noble hops and a rich, malty finish. ‘Blue Paddle’ refers to the implement our warehouse manager’s Grandma once used to lovingly paddle his a** when she caught him stealing sips of her beer. With more body than a traditional Belgian pils, Blue Paddle is reflective of Europe’s finest pilseners.
