In this special beer blog, we are going to get into another beer from the Fat Tire and Friends sampler pack from New Belgium and Hopworks Urban Brewery. It is their Fat Sour Apple Ale. I know you know the history of New Belgium Brewery. I cannot find any history for Hopworks Urban Brewery. I know they are from Portland, Oregon. Let us get into this ale.
It has a clear golden color with white constant head. The aroma has a sour apple notes but faded. The taste has a like Sour Patch Kids Sour Apple. It is candy like notes. The aftertaste has a slight sour apple finish. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.newbelgium.com):
For our new Fat Tire & Friends Collabeeration Pack, we teamed up with Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB) from Portland, Ore.
Our heroes at HUB pedaled Fat Tire straight to the apple orchard. This slightly sour homage starts out with a snap of tartness, courtesy of Lactobacillus and apple juice, then gets balanced with Fat Tire-inspired malty sweetness and a slight herbal bitterness. Nice ride, HUB!

Closing, I was not sure how this sampler pack will would go over. This is by far my favorite one in this pack. I am not taking anything away from the rest of the beers. I am not a huge apple fan, however, I love the mix of the sour and apple in this brew. It has enough sour and sweet and plus a drinkable ale. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
