Another week with New Belgium Brewery!
New Belgium Brewery - Rippel
This is a newer brew from New Belgium Brewery. It is a Belgium style wheat beer that starts out very hoppy and ends with a strong fruity taste; I could see the aftertaste being a bit overpowering for your average lightweight but given it's strong alcohol content, I'm willing to overlook this minor snag. It sits a bit heavy so I wouldn't recommend more than a couple of these unless you're looking to get hammered.
I give it 3 out of 5 aspirin.
New Belgium Brewery - Mighty Arrow
Mighty Arrow is a pale ale that starts and finishes light. Anyone that read my post last week knows that I'm generally not a fan of pale ales; this beer threw me a curve ball. I think most pale ales are way too over powering, its refreshing to try one that doesn't try to floor you with a bitter pine flavor. Given the light crisp taste of this beer, it is an excellent gateway beer for someone just dipping their toe in the figurative pale ale water.
I give it a 4 out of 5 aspirin.
