The brewery’s latest offerings prove spice is nice and wood is good
(FORT COLLINS) New Belgium Brewing is bringing back three fan favorites to help make the fall transition a little easier. Returning to tantalize taste buds across the nation are Voodoo Ranger Atomic Pumpkin, a spicy fall classic with a definite twist on traditional pumpkin beers; Le Terroir, one of New Belgium’s most popular wood-aged sours; and Tartastic Lemon Ginger, a refreshing tank-soured ale.
Voodoo Ranger Atomic Pumpkin Ale
Back by popular demand is Atomic Pumpkin, a pumpkin beer unlike any other. Not too spicy, not too sweet, this ale is brewed with Saigon cinnamon and Habanero, Aji, and Del Arbol peppers for an explosion of flavors perfect to kick off fall. This
medium-bodied ale pours bright autumnal orange with a light white lacing, and creates a spicy, warming mouthfeel.
Special Ingredients: Pumpkin juice, Habanero, Aji, and Del Arbol Peppers, Saigon Cinnamon
Malts: Pale, Munich, Caramel 80
Availability: Now in 12 oz. bottles and on draft while supplies last
Le Terroir Dry-Hopped Sour Ale
Le Terroir, named after the French term meaning “of the earth,” packs the bold and hoppy nose of an American IPA, plus the pucker of a well-crafted sour. Felix, New Belgium’s wood-aged pale sour beer, is dry hopped with whole cone Amarillo and Strata hops to create Le Terroir. The apricot and peach tones of the hops playfully complement the wood-aged backbone without any bitterness, creating a beer that changes subtly every time New Belgium brews it. As with other 2018 New Belgium vintage sour releases, this beer is bottle conditioned and presented in a 375 ml cork and cage format.
Hops: Nugget, Amarillo, Strata
Malts: Pale, Wheat, C-80, Carapils, Oats
Maturation: 100% acidified in neutral oak containing the original house mixed culture
Availability: Now in 375 ml bottles
Tartastic Lemon Ginger
A tart, refreshing ale with the lip-tingling sweet and sour flavors of lemon and ginger, this Tartastic iteration’s tank sour profile and fruity, spicy undertones enliven the taste buds with each bright, breezy sip.
Malts: Pale, White Wheat
Availability: Now in 12 oz. bottles and on draft
