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.

I guess I got what I was expecting... a drinkable but hoppy brew (not my favorite genre of beers). Anyway a good New Belgium but not one I would pick among my top 10 from that brewery.

Bottled. Red brow. Bit of hops bit if malts. Inoffensive and nor much else to say here.

GJF (1289) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle. It’s drinkable. Nothing really wrong with it, but nothing to it either. Blindfolded, I’m not sure I’d tell this from the other mainstream new belgiums.

jgb9348 (4893) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Nice crisp amber coloured body with a bit of a copper glow and a thinnish tan head. Aroma of malt, nuts, caramel and a fresh cascade hoppiness with hints of pine. Medium-bodied; Strong hoppy flavour at first with a touch of bitterness and a bit of cardboardie malt and showing some light sweetness at the tail end as well. Aftertaste shows some nice robust hoppy flavours and a little earthiness along with a touch of extra brown sugar in the mix. Overall, a nice beer with some noticeable hops and not too much depth all around. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle brought to a hockey game by Ken on 24-September-2014 - Thanks Ken!

Almost clear amber with beige fine head and lacing. Weird bitter/burnt taste up front. Lack of depth and spice notes. Cola medicinal taste. Unpleasant aftertaste. $9.99/multi sixer at Publix, Boca Raton Florida
