COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
New Belgium’s love for beer, bikes and benefits is best described by being at Tour de Fat. Our love for Cascade and Amarillo hops is best tasted in our Tour de Fall Pale Ale. We’re cruising both across the country during our favorite time of year. Hop on and find Tour de Fall Pale Ale in fall 2014.

Solidly malty and heavily hoppy, this fall beer delivers in bringing strength of hop character alongside a fall strength in caramels and malts. Winning ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear brown with a thickish nice white head from a bottle. Aroma is alcohol with a slightly roasted nose, but it’s not offensive. Flavor is similar, although more complex. No individual flavor stands out, but this in a nice balance. It goes down easy and you forget what you’re drinking beyond "a really nice beer."

Clear red orange pour with a nice lasting off white head. Aroma is juicy citrus, pine, caramel, and some toast. Taste is citrus rind, caramel, and burnt toast. Resin an caramel aftertaste. Smooth texture.

Bottle. Orange malt and pine/orange peel aroma. Amber with large white head. Sweet orange malt and moderately bitter grapefruit peel flavor. Good but standard.

12 oz bottle. Pours a thick, well retained ivory head, with some lacing, over a clear dark amber (SRM 15) body....nose is light cereal, toasted malts, pine, light citrus, balance to the hops....taste is toasted malts, with moderate pine, cirtus bitterness on the finish, balance to the hops....mouth feel light of medium body, no alcohol, slight astringency. This is a slightly under hopped version of an American Pale Ale. It is a pleasant enough beer, but is not particularly unusual for the style. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6

Bif (1443) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 13, 2014
On tap. Served a dark amber color with a nice head and some lacing. Aroma of citrus, malt with bit of caramel sweetness and fruit. Taste of malt, citrus, fruit, caramel sweetness and bit of spice in the background. Easy bitterness and a clean finish. Medium body, smooth and a bit creamy, nicely balanced. Easy drinking beer. Reminds me a bit of an English Pale Ale .

Clear deep copper under a thin rocky white head. Funny nose of sweet grassy hops like the kind they use in Fat Tire, with a little lemoniness and floral resin tones.The flavor is a bit earthy sweet with some rye and subtle molasses tones, followed by that Target hop flavour of sweet grasiness and a touch of lemon. Not shabby but nothing memorable.
