New Belgium and Hof ten Dormaal Golden Ale (Lips of Faith Series)

New Belgium Brewing, Ft. Collins, CO

IMG_4220

A deliciously uncommon springtime beer, our Golden Ale brewed with Hof ten Dormaal blends modern Mosaic hops and malted sunflower seeds with Old World ingredients such as Saaz hops, spelt and wild carrot herbs.  It’s New and Old Belgium together in a bottle.

7% ABV

Clear gold in color with a nose reminiscent of Belgian funk.  Sweet on the palate: similar to Sierra Nevada Kellerweis, but with a bit more body.  Not cloying with a hint of fruit on the back end.  For a Golden Ale, we would prefer a Duvel.

Would we have it again?  Nah…
