New Belgium Lips of Faith Series

New Belgium Brewing is continuing its Lips of Faith Series into 2012 with the release of Biere de Mars and Cocoa Mole Ale to kick off the new year.  “This first round of Lips of Faith offers spice, heat and a touch of sweet,” said New Belgium brewer Grady Hull. “It’s a bold one-two punch to start the 2012 Lips of Faith series off right.”

Biere de Mars showcases earthy tones of ripe mango and lemon verbena, this bottle-conditioned ale reflects the hearty character of the southern Belgian and northern French countrysides. Brewed with barley, oats and wheat malt, Biere de Mars’ celestial orange hue inspired the planetary play on words.  Brettanomyces, a wild yeast strain, added for bottle-conditioning creates a refreshingly sour flash across the palate. Lemon peel coupled with the lemon verbena imparts fruitlike character and a citrusy finish.

Cocoa Mole is a spiced ale brewed with cocoa and ancho, guajillo, chipotle peppers and caramel and chocolate malt to counter the heat.  Finally topped off with a touch of cinnamon.

Both brews will be available on draft and in 22-oz bombers through April or while supplies last.  To find any New Belgium beer, try out there nifty Libation Locator tool.
