3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice copper color that has a bubbly creamy light tan head. Smells of coffee, and true the lemon does come out a wee bit in the nose, but is definitely more prominent in the aftertaste. The espresso adds a nice character to the flavor and drinkability of this brew.
Part of the Folly pack I picked up when I was out on the Oregon Coast. Wasn’t sure what to make of it...but I knew I wouldn’t be let down by the other three offerings in the pack.
Seriously, I think I could really like or really hate this been depending on the day. Today, it falls into the I like side of the fence.
It’s akin to iced coffee, that someone snuck a lemon wedge into thinking it was iced tea.

Dark amber with off white head. Nice, strong coffee aroma. Same in the flavor. Just a touch of citrus.

Bought this as part of a mixed pack on my hunting trip last year. I don’t really like coffee or lemon, so this score is about where you’d expect from me, maybe even a little high, as you can easily discern both flavors. Forgot the bottle opener, so I had to use the deer’s brow tine to open the bottles. Gotta find something when you’re thirsty!

Have I mentioned that most of New Belgium’s beers taste like Fat Tire except for many of the Lips of Faith series?

Wow, this is actually pretty good. Clear mahogany brown pour with very faint diminishing offwhite head. Nose smells of chestnuts and espresso beans. Big malty/nutty flavor with more toffee and caramel. I don’t find the lemon peel other than perhaps a slight bitterness of zest. The coffee is very remote, and in my opinion, the way it should be. A slight bit metallic and vegetal though. Decent job on this.

Man, this is a pretty good beer. Dark with a nice espresso kick and a twist of lemon. There’s very little bitterness, just enough to know you’re drinking beer. This is a fine one.

Pours a very dark amber with a small tan head mostly dissipating. Nose is coffee and malt. Fairly creamy on the palate, the taste is of coffee, slightly burnt malt, toffee and a slightly dry hop finish. Lemon peel is lost in the coffee flavor. Good beer but not top tier.

An unexpected new favorite for me. Won't replace Breakfast Stout anytime soon, but it's got a great coffee nose/taste for such a (relatively) light beer.
