New Belgian Brewery has outdone themselves on this ale. Poors a foggy robust copper-tan color, has a perfect frothy top and has a refreshing yet filling aftertaste. I have tried their Lips of Faith "Brett Beer" and it was decent, but this is HANDS DOWN the best ale I have had in a long time. I would highly recommend it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge bubbly head over a hazy pale pour. Lively carbonation is visible as head goes rocky until collapse. Aroma is of strong citrus, barnyard and earth. Taste is fairly sweet, but with more bitterness than expected. Mild sweet finish with a hint of bitterness. Minor soapy off flavor in the finish, as well.

On draft poured a light amber, aromas of light yeast, clove, wheat, lemon, and pickels. Flavors are the same, light spice in aftertaste, interesting beer.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Comes out of the tap a somewhat hazy amber - not much head, but this is from the way they pour it. Aroma is malty and yeasty with a subtle fruity undertone.Malty flavor has subtle notes of yeast, hops and apple, just a touch of sour fruit plus just a hint of herbs. Firm-bodied texture has plenty of fizz and a bit of a sour bite. Another winner from New Belgium’s Lips of Faith series.

Wow! A delicious Biere de Garde (a phrase I never thought would come out of my mouth), A very complex and tasty beer. Aroma was good. Wheat, lemon, spices and a slight yeastiness. Pour was a nice cloudy, murky burnt orange with a two finger off white head. Taste was delicious. Lots of lemon, wheat, spices and yeast. There was a slightly tart aftertaste that made the beer refreshing. Nice strong carbonation. Great beer courtesy my July Secret Santa. Nice!
