3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at Mangia Italiano in St. Louis (under Lips of Faith line). The beer is a cloudy golden-orange color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Thin rings of lacing. Aroma of fruits and yeast plus some earthy malt. Medium body with flavors of funky fruit, malt and yeast. The finish is fruity and has a bready and earthy malt aftertaste. Above average overall.

Soft cloudy orange. Sharp, somewhat tart flavor up front. Soft palate and carbonation throughout. Woody and sandy flavors, somewhat sour, like grapefruit juice, with some peanuts, birch, and turpentine flavors as well. Peach aroma.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark orange; creamy (colour and consistency)head. Very slight malt in the nose. Sourish, gingerish, peppery hints in the taste on a very malty base. Not half bad. Medium-bodied, slick feeling in the throat. Nice. Quite drinkable, which I find difficult with anything swarming towards ginger. The French bière de Mars is not really considered Saison, though...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I hate round numbers, so this gets me off 1,400. Big thanks to fly for this. Pours turbid orangish with medium white head and much sticky lace. Aroma of malt, hopcit, slight vomit, barnyard, and sweaty female locker room. Tastes malty, with hopcit, earthy peaty esters, and some dusty yeast esters. Smooth finish. Very good balance and complexity. Nice style.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap as Lips of Faith Biere de Mars. Pours with a hazed amber body and a foamy off-white head that sticks for a while and leaves pretty good lace. Aroma of caramel, hay, toast, a touch of spice, diacetyl and light horse hair. Taste is pretty darn god with caramel, toast, candied figs, alcohol, toffee, bread and a very strong earthy quality (does this have a bit of brett in it?) Water like mouthfeel, light bubbles.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lips of Faith bomber. Poured lightly hazy medium orange with a short cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up coriander and oranges upfront with a malted wheat base.. warm and a touch syrupy. The flavor found caramel and biscuity malts at the core with coriander, orange zest, and white pepper around.. again syrupy-sweet.. tangy and increasingly funky from the Brett as it warmed up.. the dry, funky finish picked up an unexpected dose of chocolate. Medium-bodied and spicy on the palate, but there was still too much sweetness. This was OK.

Pours a hazy orange golden with a short-lived white head. Nicely semi-sweet and spiced aroma with hints of Belgian yeast. Body is very smooth with a pleasant, earthy dry malty profile and a mild hop balance. Very drinkable and with good style adherence. Thanks whaleman!

Bottle, shared with Dave. Pours a hazy light amber with a towering white bubbly head that retains beautifully. Aroma is sweet and slightly toasty, with soft sweet spices and light fruit. sweet flavours of hay, honey, light toast, mace, ginger, and candied apricots. Really tasty and interesting.
