Lips Of Faith Series Collaboration

From Fort Collins Colorado’s New Belgium Brewing and Brasserie Dieu du Ciel! out of Montreal Quebec comes their “Heavenly Feijoa Tripel” a collaboration ale brewed with Feijoa and Hibiscus.  A Feijoa is also known as a pineapple guava.  The beer pours a golden colour with a white head.  The aroma is of sweet fruits such as Feijoa and Hibiscus as well as some yeast and some caramel malts.  The flavour is of tropical fruits, Feijoa, Hibiscus, apple, champagne and a very mild hops presence.  The alcohol content comes in at 9.4%.  This is an amazing Tripel and tastes nothing like any other beer you will ever try!  These two breweries from across the 49th Parallel brewed up something very special here!

Commercial Description:  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.
