New Belgium Brewing – New Belgium Lips of Faith Pear Ginger Beer – 22 oz. bottle poured into a tumbler. – 7% abv.
Appearance: Pours a hazy dull amber gold. Nary a head.
Aroma: Big whiffs of candied ginger and fresh cut ginger root.
Taste: Lightly toasted pale malt, sharp ginger spice, mild but present hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Spicy full bodied. Prickly.
Overall: I love fresh ginger, I love ginger anything pretty much, so I had a great experience with this beer. It was spicy, not too sweet and fun to drink. I didn’t get much if any pear out of this, but didn’t ruin my session by any means.
