3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep, hazy golden/orange color. Large, rocky white head. Mostly lasting with excellent lacework.
The nose holds notes of soap, citrus and vineous fruit.
The flavor is malty and lightly sweet up front, then balanced out nicely on the backside with lightly bitter and astringent citrus fruit peel flavors.
Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and very fizzy carbonation. Short, astringent and very dry finish. Citrusy and tart at the wee end.
Very refreshing Spring beer!
Thanks to jskendzel for this brew!

Bomber. Pours a clear orange copper with a small frothy white head that diminishes quickly leaving decent spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is a strong clove, citrus, and light floral. Medium mouthfeel with a spicy fruit with wheat and lemon. Easy to drink, very refreshing a very good Biere de Garde from New Belgium.

Tasted from a bomber purchased in Denver, Colorado. Pours a hazy burnt orange body with a larger white head. Yeast, sour citrus fruits and a great Belgian ale aroma. Flavor is a nice lighter Belgian ale body that’s somewhat spicy, somewhat yeasty. Body is fairly malty with some sour citrus fruits in there. Delicious beer.

"newly branded "lips of faith" offering...i’ll stick with the regular stuff. don’t like paying a premium for a beer that’s at best the same as the regularly priced line-up. 1 22 oz for nearly the price of a sixer? why? don’t get me wrong, this beer was not offensive in any way, but thoroughly ordinary in every way. Won’t be back."

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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at CK. Clear deeper orange with a thicker yellowish head. Webby, weak lace. Nose is sugary and sticky malty with sweetened cherries. Taste is sticky, applely, blander with mealy apple and mineral water tinged with mild butter and powdery sweet rolls. Overly sweet and bland overall. Not good.
