New Belgium Brewing Releases New Beers for Summer

New Belgium Brewing on Tap!

New Belgium Brewing release two new beers for summer! That’s great news. If you know me, then you know that I like most of the New Belgium Brewing beers, (not all of them).

The two new brews are called Paardebloem and Pluot. Both beers should be available as long as supplies last or until the end of July.

Pluot (10% abv) is a sweet ale made from pluot juice (a hybrid of plum and apricot) and New Belgium’s house Belgian ale yeast. Paardebloem (9% abv) is the sixth beer to be launched in collaboration with Salt Lake City’s Red Rock Brewing, mixing ingredients like peach juice and dandelion greens with the house Belgian ale yeast, as well as some wood-aged sour beer and Grains of Paradise

I’m not really big on fruity beers but Paardebloem does sound attractive to me since I’m familiar with Belgian Ale Yeast.  I don’t think I’d buy a six pack of these beers, but would certainly look forward to trying them in in a mixed twelve pack.

I’ll be watching at my local bottle shop to see if these come in.  If you’ve tried it, I’d love to hear your opinions.
