Behind The Booze:
Every now and then I will go out of my way and ‘read a book by its cover’ so to speak and grab a beer I may not normally gravitate towards but that has some ‘cool’ or ‘fun’ packaging. The ( wait for this name… ) New Belgium Brewing BRasserie Dieu Du Ciel Heavenly Feijoa Tripel fits right into this category. The large bottle carries this ‘chaotic’ scene of cars, buildings and bicycles with wings and although not much information was given about the brew on the bottle – I figured what the hell, it looks cool.
Taken from their site – “Heavenly Feijoa Tripel combines Dieu du Ciel!’s love of hibiscus flowers with New Belgium’s passion for strange and worldly fruit. Feijoa, also known as pineapple guava, has a sweet, aromatic flavor, which makes the aroma of Heavenly Feijoa Tripel luscious and tropical. The beer has Belgian yeast and Nelson Sauvin hops, combining to make a sweet fruit taste, mild spicy tones and a sharp bite. Hibiscus adds a cranberry tartness and an ambrosial quality to the color.” Onto the damn review!
