Sorry to say, certain brewers just don't do it for me. Yes, they may have on occasional beer that hits the highlight reel, but in general... Eh.. no big deal. Yes, I just described New Belgium for me. If you have a different opinion, God Bless you.

Even with an aggressive pour there is not even an inch of foamy white head here. The beer is a straight amber color with a touch of releasing carbonation. Some clinging lace.

Slightly metallic, fruity aroma. I take that back. Pretty darn metallic. A note of cherry.

Spice, dates, malt, brown sugar rule the day here. Not sure the sum of the parts is any greater than the individual ingredients. Perhaps a touch of ginger.

Foamy with a delicate carbonation.

Truth is that I’ll read this review a year from now and probably forget I drank the beer. Let’s just say that I drank and reviewed it during the Det/Tex MLB playoff game. That has nothing to do with the beer but perhaps a reminder for me that I actually drank the beer. (you will probably forget it too)

Balanced and accessible anniversary brew.

Presentation:22 oz screen printed brown capped bottle. Red and orange Lips of Faith branding with the image of NB´s bike. Side paragraphs notes anniversary occasion, and main characteristics. Shows 10% Alc. by Vol. Served in a tulip glass.

A - Clear pale amber pour with a fair bubbly head, medium retention with moderate surface memory and lacing.

S - Gentle nose with sweet touches of honey, fruity (the Asian pear juice?) caramel and a light sense of yeast.

T - Flavor follows without much of a definition in the fruity sense. It is still pleasing nevertheless. Caramel and light yeast, touches of bready malts, with a faint hint of spices.

M - Medium body and carbonation with a nice sense of alcohol integration.

O - Pleasing and approachable ale.

Notes: Nothing to write home about but pretty pleasing, it is a notch above common offerings and it flows pretty well as a more elaborate brew for people not so familiar with craft brews, and as a step to entice them into more complex brews. In that context, socially, it might be worth the repeat…

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A: Frothy white head with a nice mixture of large and small bubbles sits atop a hazy dark, muddled orange (dark honey) colored beer. No visible carbonation or lacing.

S: Immediately I get that really bread-like yeast characteristic on the nose. A small sour-like component, maybe Brett? I don't think this is supposed to be a sour though. Finally, I get a hard candy scent, like a Jolly Rancher. If anything, the aroma is good, but defiantly confusing.

T: This beer keeps getting stranger. It has a saison quality to it, sort of barnyard-like - probably from the yeast. Fresh fruit on the mid-palate though the finish where another funky characteristic takes charge. I have no experience with this, but I'd say it's 'peaty' or 'mossy', like some whiskies. Very strange indeed.

M: This is a thin beer - light body, which is incredibly surprising, and the carbonation is on the low side as well.

D: This beer hides the alcohol better than any that I have ever had. When you begin to feel it, it's too late. Whether that is well done on the brewer's part or not is up to the end-user.

Had on tap at the Petrol Station...

Appearance-Body is a fairly hazy, orangey/copper body. Almost no head and minimal lacing.

Smell-Sweet, Hoppy, and slightly sour. Also lots of different fruity aromas like orange and pear juice and apple skins.

Taste-After the smell I really had no idea what to expect and it worked pretty well together. At first I had some difficulty drinking it and couldn't figure it out. Some cirus and floral hops up front and then came through an array of fruit juices followed by a sweet syrupy finish. Slight booze came through as well at the end.

Mouthfeel-Full bodied, very syrupy. Carbonation was pretty low.

Overall-Interesting beer that I enjoyed alot towards the end of the drink. Interesting beer that changes alot throughout the drink. Sip it and enjoy.

Enjoyed on-tap @ the Wolf Public House in Ballwin, MO for $4 (employee 50% discount). Tapped from the Red/White SurfBoard with L.O.F. Super Cru on the tap handle into a 12oz Snifter Glass. Has a keg date of ???.

Aroma- Very strong and complexed. Has a strong forward malt aroma with hints of banana. Citrus and oranges are available to the nose as well. Might have a tough of alcohol in here but instead of being strong, they are spicy! Very nice!

Appearance- Received with a 2 finger head that dies pretty quick. Has a copper color body that you can see through it completely. Nice lacing is left afterwards.

Flavor- Tons of fruit and malt are the main tastes. Has a good amount of spice intertwined in the taste and has a light peppery character. Good punch on the finish.

Mouthfeel- Medium Bodied, Light-Medium Carbonation, Smooth but then good alcohol present and then the finish is a nice punch of malt/citrus!

Overall Impression- Quite the brew! Not sure why this is rated so low but I thought it was a great Lips of Faith beer! The 10% is definitely evident within finishing the 12oz glass even. Good complexity and the right amount of strength. Would definitely go back to and get a bottle of. Go grab yours while they are left!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a thick snow-white head, firm and tight and a bit rocky. Color is a glimmering amber/bronze with much clarity and an army of bubbles swirling around, almost in champagne-like fashion. Lots of lace left on the glass.

Aroma just about nails the style, having equal parts sweet, succulent fruits (indeed, mostly pear), earthy yeast, and an herbal/flowery counterpart.

While the taste favors a bit of heat, I think it only aids the soft and very slick mouthfeel and the gentle pear attributes, which provide the fruit's characteristic flavor and sweetness. A bit of spiciness comes in too, white spice maybe, probably a result of both the alcohol and the yeast. I really like the taste and all that is going on here -- sure, it's a little busy and maybe not everything is meshing up perfectly, but it's intriguing. My only complaint is that the flavor totally fades once the sip goes down the throat, leaving only a mildly spicy finish, at best.

For a sweet 10% beer, Super Cru remains delicate in feel, complex in composition, and very drinkable. And it doesn't resemble Fat Tire in the slightest (which is the foundation of this beer, according to the bottle text).

22oz bottle into my Allagash glass. It poured amber orange color with a full and frothy head filling the top inch of the glass. The head faded to a thin, spotty, lacing and left just a bit of lacing.

I get a lot of the pear juice and siason yeast to the aroma. The pear juice gives it some sweeter, crisp, tart, fruitiness while the yeast adds a healthy dose of earthy spices. Those two flavors seem to overpower anything else in it though. They aren't bad, I'd just have liked to have more of this double fat tire come through in it.

The taste shows a lot of the yeast spice to it throughout the beer. The sweeter, crisp and tart pear juice comes out more in the finish. Those two flavors dominate the beer and it's tough to get anything else past them. Not bad overall, but the flavors could have been balanced better.

The mouthfeel feels a bit heavy for the style and carbonation is on the higher side. Overall it was a drinkable beer, but not a great one. The pear juice and spice flavors just overwhelmed the beer flavors for me. Would have really liked to see more of the double fat tire flavors come through more.

New Belgium Lips of Faith Super Cru. For their 20th Anniversary, they did something different with their familiar flagship brew, and doubled the recipe on Fat Tire amber ale, adding Asian pear juice, then re-fermenting with a saison yeast. 10 % Alcohol by volume. The end result was not received with resounding hosannas by the beer geeks and snobs at large, but from my perch at the bar, people have been loving it. I got one keg that was included in a special event last week featuring 6 Lips of Faith beers. It went back on tap tonight, and was a big hit with many. This would be my last chance to really try it, without chasing down a bottle. It'll finish out tomorrow for sure, but I've got my pour here at bar close, and away we go…

Appearance: Clear and crimson-colored, under a creamy, off-white head, 1/2" thick and long-lasting.

Aroma: wild and funky, in a mellow style, at the outset, with fruity esters beneath. floral hoppitude. Toasty malt, then distinctive, delicate pear is noted. Curious about why that chose that pear juice addition, but it does appear in the nose. Interesting. And particularly pleasant. I like it.

Taste: And it's there in spades in the flavor, drowning out the malt flavor we know from Fat Tire, which should be louder in this double-up version. Some sweetness slips in, but is tempered by the dry, spicy yeast character. Great match between malty, fruity sweetness and the spice & the hops.

And then along comes the booze, fat, juicy, leaning in on the lobes. Roaring in, pounding at the door. Very friendly and warming. However. The medium body is too meager for this assault, I can feel my defenses weakening. The uniquely tasty fruit factor is a true delight for the sense, a thrill on the tongue, but it's not enough to hold the intense 10 % alcohol barrage.
Would a lower alcohol version work better, or even be possible, following the same procedure?

It's a bit of a mixed-up mess, but experiments are gambles sometimes, and not everything is for everyone. Not perfect, not amazing, but very interesting, and tasty, for sure.

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #53 (June 2011):

Big beer brewed with Asian pear juice. Shiny copper color; two-finger head drops to a thin ring of lace. Some vague floral fruitiness meets spiciness, with medicinal herb and alcohol in the nose. Some smoothness, slick with a big body. Mild tartness with a thick malty foundation, and a hint of sweetness up front. Toasted bread and ripe fruit soon make way for a more toasty, dry, almost broth-like flavor. Spicy, boozy alcohol, rose water and tropical fruit. Semidry finish clings to the booziness. A serious beer if strength is considered, though beyond that, it lacks a bit of depth that was expected. A tasty brew nonetheless.

Appearance. Pours a hazy orange with a thin white head that doesn't last very long.

Smell. Sweet fruits (pears, apples and plums) and brown sugar. A little spice and yeast.

Taste. Sweet caramel, apples, pears and plums. Belgian yeast funk is there and a little light grain. Alcohol is pretty well hidden.

Mouthfeel. Medium body and medium carbonation.

Overall. Not as super as I was led to believe, but nothing really wrong here. I didn't hate it, but won't buy again.

From 22oz bomber to Bruges hybrid glass on 9/18/11
*From notes

-- This bottle was generously shared by my Pops --

A: Filtered red delicious amber. A good pour yields a 1.25 finger head and thin, moderate lacing.

S: There's actually a good amount of crisp pear here. Even if I hadn't know that this contained pear juice, I would have spotted it pretty quickly. There's also a generous helping of that Belgian musty yeast.

T: A bit of smokey banana up front - the Belgian yeastiness is all over the brew. As it hits the mid, the dry pear juice reveals itself, and the finish is a pretty successful marriage of the two.

M: The weight's decent, though the texture could have been spectacular had they left this unfiltered. As it is, it's just ok.

O: NB's Lips of Faith Super Cru is a pretty tasty brew. I liked it for what it is: an American interpretation of a Belgian Pale with a hearty dose of pear juice. I don't know if I'll be rushing back to this often, but I certainly did enjoy my half of the bomber.

Pours a clear amber color with a off white head that falls to a ring and laces well.

Aroma is fruity malt that's lightly spicy. Pear, banana, apples on sweet malt base, cloves with light peppery notes in the background.

Taste is sweet malt base that seems lightly over powered by the pear juice, some other fruit notes apples mainly with light bananas. Spice is prevalent through out and linger in the finish also.

Mouthfeel is only medium with nice smooth level of carbonation.

Overall not bad just little too much pear juice for me, would probably be good or better if they just left it out.

S: Belgian phenolics, spicy clover mostly, faint pear esters, pils maltiness.

L: Clear burnt orange, creamy white head with just a touch of retention. Solid lacing.

T: Sweet pils malt with pear and apple intermingled. A soft clove spiciness accompanies the sweetness. Low bitterness.

M: Medium bodied, medium carbonation.

Quite sweet bordering on cloying. I could appreciate the pear flavors in this, but it just didn't work for me, pretty much a mess.

Pours a nice amber/orange color w/ a one finger cocoa head. Plenty of carbonation, and decent lacing on this beer. Very clear in appearance and very easy to see all the way through. Nose is yeast, malt, pear, apple... Hops are surprisingly absent so far in the smell. Maybe once it warms a bit. Yes, they're coming out w/ warming. Taste is unique, and slightly strange to me. The hops show up a bit, but it's mainly pear juice and malt that I get, w/ pear juice being on the strong side. Everything seems just a little out of balance to me. It's not horrible, it's just not great. Mouthfeel is syrup smooth, and very sweet. Not a lot of complexity in this category. Overall, this beer is just a little off. It sounds like a good idea when you read the description of the beer, but the end result just doesn't quite make it.

Pours somewhere between copper and amber with plenty of active carbonation and thinnish, cream-colored head. The aroma is malty up front; lots of caramel and toffee notes. Sweet, fruity notes come up after - apple (or pear, I suppose), a touch of cherry, slight citrus fruit. The flavor is very sweet right away - lots of caramel and fruit notes - strong pear and cherry notes, turning a bit sourish with a touch of hops coming in at the end along with a hint of yeasty spice notes. A very full body from the intense sweetness; the carbonation helps lighten it up a bit but not nearly enough.

Poured into a New Belgium Globe. Pours a clear, deep copper with a two fingered offwhite head. Head is creamy, and drops slowly, leaving some nice lacing.

Aromas of spicy pepper from the saison yeast, asian pear juice, musty, deeply malty. Earthy.

Flavors of WOW! The label nails it for you, Fat Tire on steriods, asian pears, and a peppery saison yeast. A very slight alcohol bite. Finish is short, with fruity esters, and caramel malt sweetness in the fade.

Mouthfeel is medium but crisp, like biting into a fresh asian pear. Low bitterness, and a spot on level of carbonation.

Overall, a very interesting beer. Nice anniversary beer. Grab a few and lay them down for a few years. Not representative of a Belgian Strong Pale Ale. Not sure it has a definitive style, though.

A - a filtered dark amber with a big fizzy head that leaves some lacing.
S - fruity, yeasty and hint of tingly tart.
T - definitely fruity but I can't quite call it a pear. A midly tart background from the saison yeast.
M - medium bodied with spritzy carbonation.
D - quite easy drinking for something at 10%abv.

Appearance:
Poured into a Surly pint glass. Under 2 fingers of head, which disappeared completely before I actually took my first sip. Clear golden amber color actually looks very nice.

Smell:
Sweet malt, a bit of pear, a bit of apple, tiny hint of banana. I would definitely describe it as more fruity than hoppy, and a little tart. It kind of reminds me of a belgian beer.

Taste:
Yes, the fruit still comes through strong. Semi-sweet, but not as sweet as I had come to expect. Not tart at all. Very far from bitter, and definitely smooth. It has an aftertaste which just makes me think of a saison with a little black pepper or chile. It's an interesting taste to be sure.

Mouthfeel:
Not stepping into any new grounds here. Just a bit of heat, doesn't coat the mouth, but lingers for a little while. Medium or so carbonation.

Overall:
A solid beer in my opinion. It's not going to make it's way onto my favorites list, and at the price I probably won't buy it again. However, I don't regret spending the money to try it.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

A gorgeous ruby orange clear body with some very fast large rising cola sized bubbles. Head has a caramel color off in a way, but doesn't stick around with its weak soapy appearance. This beer starts looking off great, and then starts looking flat as a board. No lacing at all.

Nose is belgian yeast like bent, with a sense of carbonated gas. Spicy hot and sense of acid and hint of mild tart green apple.

Taste is mostly weak yeast and wet bodied. Not particularly fruity and really wet.

Overall not much going on here. I love Asian pears, but I get no sense of this on here at all. Greeny apple like taste come more apparent as it warms. It's not too bad but I do not see myself gravitating to this strongly.

New Belgium Lips Of Faith Super Cru is fruity, sweet, and creamy.

It poured light amber with a massive bubbly white head that immediately dissipated. It left a good amount of lace on the glass. The smell was generally non-descript with a hint of metallic yeastiness. The flavor was very strong and good, dominated by sweet ripe pear with a slightly peppery finish. The feel was remarkably creamy with a dry finish.

Lips Of Faith Super Cru is good in a fruit-tart-with-whipped-cream kind of way.

Welcome to DC New Belgium!

A: Blood red, mildly cloudy, with a slight head that didn't amount to much. I guess a mild bit of sawdust topping survived the session.

S: Bad. Grassy, wheaty, with a slight bit of hoppiness, lots of candy sugar, and rotten fruit...

T: Very heavy-handed on the yeast and sugar, along with more than a tinge of rotten banana. I didn't detect any pear juice, or anything that even resembled pear.

M: Carbonation moderate, with a mild bit of lacing and lots of sugar.... too much even.

O: Ridiculous and un-palate-ful beer. I poured the rest out.

Looks very much like a glass of Fat Tire, which makes sense. Maybe a bit more fiery orange, with a little bit of a haze. A finger's worth of almond colored head forms with the pour, and dies down to a thin collar quickly. Needless to say, there's no lacing. I hand wash all my glassware in cold water with the same dish soap I've been using for years, so it's not a problem on my end.
The saison yeast is readily apparent in the nose. Lots of fruit and belgian yeast spiciness atop the toasty malt backbone. Not much in the way of hops. I read on the bottle that this is brewed with those pears that look like apples, but they seem lost in the crowd amidst the heavy belgian yeast character. It seems like it was fermented really hot, with all the fruit and heady phenols, but that could just be the addition of the pears jumping into the mix. Nice and lively overall.
The flavor opens with a burst of sugary sweetness. Lots of toasty malt and caramel flavor, with flourishes of the saison yeast adding "english". The overall flavor profile migrates from heavy, fruity sweetness into a bit of peppery, vaguely sour belgian yeast spice. Remains sweet overall, but chills out enough with the spice and mild hoppage to stay within reason. The finish is heavy with sugary clove, plastic band-aid phenols and a boozy lick. The carbonation is very heavy and extra burpy at first. I left the last third of the bottle to mellow in the fridge, topped with the bent crown, for the better half of a week, and it's very soft and finely bubbled now. Too much at first, but very nice when allowed to settle out. The body is medium to heavy, light for a brew of this size, and the fresh carbonation is just too fizzy.
Feels a little heavy handed on the sweetness, but the base recipe is a pretty straightforward, 90's era "microbrew" amber ale, so I guess that makes sense. I can appreciate the tribute to the beer that built the brewery, so I'll take it for the artistic homage that it is. I enjoy a Fat Tire, and it's a lot of fun to see what happens when a flagship beer is used for inspiration in the more creative endeavors..

Bottle date illegible.

A: pours orange with under a single finger of off white head. this quickly dissipates to a broken sheet of the same. Spotty lace. Excellent clarity.

S: Belgian yeast, apple meat, slightest hint of pear, honestly if I didn't know there was pear here I wouldn't have guessed it. The yeast profile is sweet and has some banana tones.

T: Sweet, wheaty, yeasty. Really yeasty to me. the pear juice is much more evident through here, but not really a good addition to this beer IMO.

M: Moderate body with medium to hi carbonation.

O: Well, it's beer. But the yeast is overbearing and does not allow the juice to come through to the extent I hope they intended. with a really sweet malt profile and no alcohol burn, this beer becomes lop-sided in favor of decadence vs drinkability.

22oz into a goblet

A - deep golden in color, with a few amber highlights. I would describe the head as pearly white, strong, breaks down to a film quickly. The head leaves quite a bit of lacing. Very clear beer overall.

S - A fruity smell on this one - starts off with some apple, pear, and then goes to a little bit of a malty sweetness. The belgian yeast dominates the smell. Some spiciness comes through.

T - Starts off sweet, malty, some of the fat tire backbone coming through. mid-stream brings in some graininess and then a hugely spicy, early and even a bit wild yeast. Very strong yeast. Finishes with a little bit of nuttiness. After taste is fairly fruity with some alcohol warmth.

M - Light beer body and a strong carbonation. Alcohol warmth is very strong throughout.

O/D- A bit with many different flavors - not that they integrate all that well. Alcohol is super strong, both in flavor and potency.

Just a little too much going on.

Bottle at Rustico Alexandria during New Belgium's launch party yesterday. Served in a tulip.

Pours a moderately-dark golden color with a good white head and plenty of sticky lacing on the way down.

The nose says that this was fermented improperly for the style. Far too much bubble gum and banana, making it seem more like an imperial hefeweizen. Flavor suffers from the same faults.

Feel is off from the yeast character. Otherwise, too full and not crisp enough.

Decent and not terrible, but not something I would have again.
