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.

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.

Pours decently with a transparent orange and a slight pure white head. The aroma is a bit hot, and sweet as well. Vaguely fruity, but I couldn't tell you if it's Asian pear- the smell is simply not delineated enough. The taste is similar. Better when it's cold- when it warms up it tastes a bit like cheap fruit juice, of indeterminate fruit, laced with vodka. A bit harsh in the mouth as well, with a slight acetone finish. I'd give this one a miss.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

It pours a rich looking faded copper orange color. It's not a clear beer at all, unless it's just a chilled haze I'm seeing. Very cloudy. There is no head whatsoever. A few bubbles are up top, but it's hard to call this a head. Too bad too because it's a very rich looking pale ale style beer.

Something gives this an odd smell. It's not a bad smell, but it's very odd. It could be the pear juice, but I think it's the Belgian yeast. It's funky smelling. More than anything, with the high ABV and fruit juice, it smells like a cocktail.

I always try to explain to people that aren't craft beer fans that fruity beers aren't necessarily normal beers with fruit juice added. Unfortunately, this is exactly that. It's basically a mediocre beer with fruit juice added. Because of that, the flavors don't work well together, they kind of cause problems.

Sometimes a lot of different ingredients, scents, flavors provide complexity. This doesn't. There's no cohesion. It's sweet, very tart, bitter, warming, but each of those feels tries to be the star instead of working together. Very similar to some krieks that I've almost had to pour down the drain.

A bit too funky for me. Nothing works, lots of rough edges. Not smooth. Rough around the edges.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Pours a finger of beige head. decent retention. Color is a clear pale gold.

Aroma: Grape skins and tannins. Bananas and some other mixed fruits. Bready malts. Some coriander and dry spice. Yeasty and Belgian flavored. A touch of booze.

Taste: Bready and biscuit flavored. Baked bread and yeast. Bananas, cloves, coriander, and a mix of dry spices. Tannins and other fruits. Very Belgian flavored. Too much booze.

Mouthfeel: Boozy yet smooth and dry. An odd texture. Too dry. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends with a bad aftertaste that lingers on.

Overall, okay, but not something I would drink again. Just not that tasty for being what it is and the abv it's at.

Pours a nice golden orange with a thick head that is leaving fast.

This beer smells, oddly enough, like a sauvignon blanc. Sweet and fruity with lots of Belgian yeast. Unfortunately the taste was not as good. You can definitely taste the pear and yeast, but I feel like the double fat tire base is what is killing the taste.

I had to sort of force the rest of this beer down since the flavor was absolutely not doing anything for me.

[Best served in a Trappist glass]

The pour was a medium orange with a slight brown hue and a small (less than 1 finger) white fizzy head that was dissipated rapidly to just a few puddles of residue and had some streaky lacing.

The aroma was of straw malts, grassy hops and a moldy doughy yeast with notes of caramel, a bit of fruitiness and a nice dose of alcohol.

The taste was a little bland yet still sweet and a tad acidic with a decent caramel note in the beginning and finished a bit malty and fruity with a mild alcohol tinge at the end. The flavor lasted a decent amount of time after the swallow, leaving behind a slight fruitiness and a strong alcohol flavor.

Mouthfeel was somewhere between light and medium in body with the texture being oily and a bit watery with a mild carbonation.

Overall a very mild tasting Belgian Ale, which was a little astringent, a bit fruity and had a strong alcohol presence.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A- Deep reddish amber with a half inch or so of head that dissipates into a thin ring of lace. A bit dark for a BSPA (if that is, indeed, what it's supposed to be) but otherwise quite nice-looking.

S- Pears and apple juice with a good dose of clove spice. Perhaps some caramel and husky grain as well.

T- Very sweet with a near-cloying apple/pear juice flavor. A rich caramel character doesn't really help matters either. Alcohol is quite evident at times, especially on the finish. Finishes with an odd, slight bitterness and lingering apple sweetness.

M- Thick, almost syrupy with a decent balancing carbonation.

This is a bit odd; I'm not sure exactly what it's trying to be. It's too dark and rich to really be a tripel or a BSPA, but it's certainly not in the Quad/BSDA category either. I don't mind oddballs, but they need to taste good. This one was overly sweet and lacked balance. Not horrible, but spend your ten bucks elsewhere.

A: Poured aggressively, but still resulted in very little head at all. Cloudy appearance, with a dark golden color.

S: Strong smell of saison yeast. As it warms, hints of the pear juice become far more evident. Definte sweet, Belgian scents

T: initial taste is also the most overwhelming, which is a strong flavor of yeasty Saison. As it warms the malty sugar taste arrives and it finishes with a pear juice taste that leaves as quickly and abruptly as it arrives.

M: Pretty light in body, sweet and a pretty dry with very little carbonation. Ok

O: Overall I appreciate this for it uniqueness, but it's just ok for me. I would definitely recommend letting it warm a bit before drinking.

Picked this one up the other day while out beer shopping, and before I began hating New Belgium for their inane decision to send the Leopold beers out of state, thereby denying loyal longtime customers exciting beers (I know I'm coming across as entitled, but hey I can get all the mighty arrow I want). But I digress...

This one poured a nice amber color with a perfect finger of slightly off-white head. Beautiful. Sadly, it was downhill from there. Aromas of yeast, green apples and pears. On the palate, this one was light to medium bodied, with flavors of apples, lemon and pears.

From notes. Poured into a tulip.

Appearance- Pours a crystal clear amber, with a bubbly white head. Decent retention, but no lacing.

Smell- Tart grapes, pear, slight citrus, and a little bready.

Taste- Grapes, pears, apple, a bit tart on the tongue, slightly doughy, the “imperial” Fat Tire, shows up big time on the finish and linger. Saison yeast influence, is basically nonexistent.

Mouthfeel- Medium body and carbonation, somewhat sticky, but the ABVs are hid well.

Overall- I like the interesting concept, even though I am not a big fan of Fat Tire. This beer had potential, but falls short in many ways. Does it want to be a sour? A stronger fat tire? A fruit beer? A saison? It doesn't matter that its not brewed to a specific style, but there is little direction overall and it all doesn’t come together too great.

Pours a light copper/amber into a NB globe glass with a nice inch of rather fizzy off white head that settles down quickly to a denser cap of white lace with spotty inconsistent lacing.

The biscuit malts I'd expected from this since it's using a fat tire base is quite muted, rather a sticky sweet bun malt aroma mixed with some Belgian yeast, pepper and saison funk start to arise. The Asian pear juice aroma is noticable, a cross between apples, unripe bartlett pears and a spritz of lemon. I think this is exactly how they drew it up.

Once again the malt character is light there is some biscuit malt but for the most part comes off as a flaky pastry feel, light and airy. Fruit sweetness comes in especially as the beer warms, a bit of farmhouse matched with light amounts of earthy spices, lemon zest, apples and pear juice. No hop character nor a strong malt envelope, lightly fruity, funky, and tart, nothing seems to want to be assertive here, except perhaps the alcohol. A bit disappointed, like sipping on hard cider with a stale poptart.

Mild carbonation and a very light body, despite this the beer is neither crisp or tart enough to shine through. The alcohol is very present after the drink because there isn't enough body to hide it but at least there isn't a mouth coating or sticky feel.

I found it odd that NB decided to use Asian pear juice, while a unique ingredient Asian pears are special due to their crispness and texture not their command of flavor. Bad investment even at 8.99 a bomber, the recent Lips of Faith have been excellent but IMO this is the biggest let down since Vrienden, lacks the balance, body and sessionable feel which Fat Tire brings to the table. Not a drain pour but not really worth seeking out again. It's your 20 year anniversary NB next time let's celebrate with a party not a hangover.

Pours a dark orange with a small white head that fades quickly.

Smells of sugar, some hop, and not a lot else.

Tastes sweet up front with a big fruit, pear/peach note in the middle, some hints of darker fruit. It finishes smooth with a nice lingering taste.

Mouthfeel is good. It has a nice amount of carbonation and is somewhat dry. It is easy to drink given the alcohol, which is hidden well.

This beer is OK. It is a Belgian with a slightly odd fruit taste that doesn't really stack up to other Belgian beers. Even on its own, it is just OK. Not mandatory by any stretch.

On tap at the Surly Goat in Hollywood:

Sits a pale cranberry with gold color when held up in the light. Not much carbonation, even on tap. A thin ring settles around the edge of the glass with a little visible fermentation going on at the bottom of the tulip. Astringent hoppy aroma with sour cherries and a bit of alcohol. Sour cherries are less pronounced in taste and the oak barrel flavor takes over, and it leaves a bit of an alcohol burn in your throat. I get a bit of the yeast in the taste as well. You can tell this is the same strain as Fat Tire. Watery, a bit thin (which seems hard to pull off, considering the ABV), and a wet finish.

This looked like a Flanders Red ale, which might explain my sour cherry taste. I didn't get any pear flavor like the other reviewers. When I sat down to think about this review, I realized this was basically an Imperial Fat Tire aged in oak barrels. That turned me off a bit, but for the illogical reason that I like to be surprised by the brewer's creativity. This really would have been a better beer if they kept the oaky flavors more muted. I like some oak, but a little goes a long way. An interesting, if unremarkable beer.

On tap at the Clips of Faith event in Santa Cruz. Pours a shimmering copper color with an off-white head. Candied fruit aroma, bananas, straw, and pepper. Flavor is pears and bananas drenched in honey/caramel, vanilla, pumpernickel bread, tart/acidic boozy finish. A strange beer, decent in sample size as a dessert type of thing but not a very quaffable drink. Much too sweet.

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.

Enjoyed in a snifter at Tops. Brewed for New Belgium’s 20th anniversary, this beer’s built on a base of Fat Tire with double the malt and hops, plus Asian pears and saison yeast. If it sounds weird, that’s because it is.

Perfectly clear apple juice brown. A very thin layer of froth sits atop, leaving zero lace.

Lots of Belgian esters on top of a very apple-heavy nose. Some pear, banana and hints of soy emerge.

Weird flavor clash. Sweet pears, apples and biscuits below a very heavy Belgian yeast character. I know the brewery was going for a Belgian theme, but this skews too far in that direction for me. Light bitterness and a lingering salty tang.

The body is heavy, almost syrupy, with pokey medium carbonation. Fairly clean finish and a good amount of booze in the nose.

I have to admit, I wanted to dislike this beer more than I did. It's weird and unnecessary, but not undrinkable.

Slightly hazy copper in color Almost no head to speak of. It was gone before I even got my nose in it.

Fruity, saison style spiciness in the aroma. Herbal, boozy. Can definitely pick up the pear juice.

Starts out a bit tart. Fruity & floral before giving way to a little thick malty sweetness with some boozy alcohol. A hint of yeasty spiciness. Just a big strong beer with some fruity and funky characteristics.

Thick, syrupy, medium to full body. soft carbonation. A little heat as it warms. I don't know how i feel about it. It's ok. It's different and not really what I was expecting. The first sip was very tart and caught me off guard. The flavors here aren't too complex.

"Our 20th anniversary! Let's roll a bunch of New Belgium together and put it in a bottle, start with the backbone of Fat Tire, but double the malt and hops; add in asian pear juice, a very Belgian thing to do; and bring it to life with a Saison yeast. It's New Belgium Super Cru from us to you! Brewed in the style of a Belgian Strong Pale Ale.

Served in a New Belgium Globe snifter. Served north of 45º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a copper-tinged cream head of a thick frothy consistency over a very hazy copper amber body with ample carbonation. Lacing is light and stringy and retention is average at best. A decent appearance but could do much better. 3.25

(Smell) Aroma is strong with a tart fruit juice forward, biscuity malts, a pinch of ginger spice and pepper and a subtle earthy hop backbone. Fruit juice comes off strong, very central to the aroma of this beer, and the touch of funk is a distinctive twist for a perceptible sourness. Malt character pales significantly by comparison. I'm not blown away by the aroma, it comes off a bit overdone in the wrong places and underdone in other spots. There are some notable astringencies that I could only deduce in this stage, none of them were appetizing in nature. 3

(Taste) The balance is a bit better balanced in the flavor, with a moderate, biscuity malt character, relatively clean, a dash of standard Belgian spices like coriander and pepper, a nod to citrusy hop character and a still strong, still forward pear juice concentrate for a very dry and very acidic finish. The combination of acidic fruit juice and strong spice profile compared to a biscuity, moderate malt character makes this one very dry Belgian Ale. I didn't really enjoy the balance in this beer as much as I had hoped to- hopefully it's just an old batch but the flavor isn't extraordinary by any stretch. 3.25

(Mouthfeel) Mouth is slightly sweet with juicy sugars, but wraps up with a dry acidic finish paired with a forward Belgian spice profile. Carbonation is fuzzy and provides a subtle airy texture. Alcohol is medium/high, quite perceptible in this beer and not hidden by much body. The body itself is a medium+ amongst the style and medium/high overall. While the carbonation and texture was decent, the alcohol could have been a bit better hidden and the body didn't do a good job at keeping it under wraps. 3

(Overall) Super Cru plays around with a popular style but comes out somewhere in the middle. I enjoyed the pear juice twist but found it too distracting and the malt body was a bit too plain and transparent by comparison. Not bad for an experiment but overall it didn't impress me all that much and doesn't warrant a repeat visit from me. 3.25

Served in a snifter at The Firkin.

Been lookin' at the bottle for some time, figured I'd just rock the tap at the Firkin. It pours a clear amber-russet topped by a finger of cream-white foam. The nose comprises buttery caramel, sourdough, light tart black cherry, light roasted malts, and light maple syrup. The taste holds notes of maple syrup, light wood (an amalgam of oak and balsa), light roasted malts, light coffee, toffee, mandarin orange syrup, and a twinge of green apple skin. Something akin to maple-smoked bacon is in there, too. All told, it's not the greatest taste combination I've ever experienced. The body is a straight medium, with a light medium carbonation and a nearly syrupy feel. Overall, though it's not an entirely bad beer, I feel it is definitely misnamed. I didn't hate it, but I sure as hell don't want another one.

Bomber poured into my large Gulden Draak tulip, New Belgium's Grand Cru is bright copper with an off-white head leaving scattered lace.

Smell is on the fruity ester sides, a little overripe banana reminiscent to me of an over aged blonde, and some sourish citrus.

Taste is heavy on the old blonde side that I don't care for (I don't know when this came out or remember when I bought it, but it was a the front of my cellar). The pear is somewhat notable, mostly the acidic citrus, but it's mostly the esters and broken down malt. A hint of snappy, herbal hops helps.

Mouthfeel is dry, acidic, medium bodied.

Drinkability isn't too high to me. It taste like an over-aged trippel. Maybe just the pear juice. Regardless, not digging it.

Amber color with some orange streaks. Head is full and tight, but somewhat wispy. Good look to start. Nose is generally estery, bringing fruits like pear and a bready note. The base Fat Tire ingredients show, with the caramel breadiness coming through faintly.

Bottom line here is that the heat is too strong for the foundation of the beer. Pear, green apple, banana, and even some tropical fruit notes appear on the palate, suggesting a fair amount of sweetness. The body is a bit too faint to handle the sugars, and the alcohol heat just takes over.

Firm up the body here; clearly just doubling the recipe isn't working to keep the balance in check. The yeast able to eat its way over 9% abv can clearly make short work of the Fat Tire malts. Furthermore, I wouldn't stick with the pear juice either. This seems to be a case of jamming 10 pounds of shit in a 5 pound bag, before seeing if the bag can handle 5 pounds in the first place. Skip this one until they get the recipe correct.

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)

22oz bottle from Supermarket Liquors in Ft. Collins. $9. Into an old school NB Globe.

A: Clear copper in color with a pale white head that grew to an inch and disappeared just as fast as it came to be. No lacing to speak of. A fair amount of carbonation is moving through the glass.

S: Lots of Belgian yeast esters. Bubblegum, banana, and a bit of spice/plastic which is kind of weird. Lots of yeasty esters and not much else.

T: Again a lot of Belgian yeast signatures, bubblegum and cloves, quite spicy. Some slight menthol flavors to it as well. Caramelized malts and table sugar. I get a fair amount of saison-esque yeasts on the finish. Wow this beer is absolutely all over the place. Its complex but lacks focus and direction. Some good flavors going on, but it really is bizarre.

M: Dry and warm, medium to heavy carbonation, fair amount of warmth in the stomach and throat. Finishes nicely dry though.

O: This might be a bit young, its completely all over the place, and doesn't really do a whole lot for me. This will be better with some time, it will be interesting to see how this is in another year. Right now its pretty mediocre.
