New Belgiums New Offerings for 2012

Just read on their website that New Belgium Brewing will be releasing Biere de Mars again along with Cocoa Mole in their Lips of Faith series to start off 2012. Here are the facts:

With earthy tones of ripe mango and lemon verbena, this bottle-conditioned ale reflects the hearty character of the southern Belgian and northern French countrysides. Brewed with barley, oats and wheat malt, Biere de Mars’ celestial orange hue inspired the planetary play on words.

Brettanomyces, a wild yeast strain, added for bottle-conditioning creates a refreshingly sour flash across the palate. Lemon peel coupled with the lemon verbena imparts fruitlike character and a citrusy finish.

ABV: 6.2%
IBU: 22
Hops: Target, Willamette, Cascade
Malts: Pale, C-8o, Oats, Wheat, Carapils
OG: 14.9
TG: 2.9
Fruits/Spice: Lemon Peel, Lemon Verbena
Say Hola to a spiced up ale full of cocoa and ancho, guajillo, chipotle peppers. But don’t fear the heat, because plenty of caramel and chocolate malts bring a smooth, complex flavor to our Cocoa Molé. Scents of cinnamon when poured will have you saying, “¡Olé for molé!”
Hops: Target
Malts: Pale, C-8o, Chocolate, Dark Chocolate
OG: 22
Fruits/Spice: Cocoa, Chili, Cinnamon
