New Belgium De Koninck Flowering Citrus Ale (Lips of Faith Series)

New Belgium Brewing, Ft. Collins, CO

DSCF2767

No need to jet to Antwerp when you can open up a bouquet of Flowering Citrus Ale.  Thanks to our friends at De Konnck Brewery, we brewed up a summery ale bursting with key lime and whole lemons that mingle with the fragrance of hibuscus, rose petals and strawberry-tinge Mistral hops.  Open up and let Belgian summer bloom.

7.4% ABV

Clear gold in color with a floral citrus nose.  Not much going on with this beer: very light with a bit of citrus fruit.  Lighter than a White Ale.  Odd sour-ish aftertaste.

Would we have it again?  No
