2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2010 Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, malt syrup), lightly hoppy (apricot), with notes of nutmeg, pumpkin, and detergent. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Odd aroma reminiscent of Thanksgiving time beers, squashy and nutmeggy. Some flaws too, though...crude malt character that’s more or less New Belgium’s trademark, and some soap. Sweetness lingers uncomfortably long into the finish; difficult to drink much of.

Not quite what I was expecting. Pours a hazy orange with almost no discernable head. Oily in the glass. Tastes sugary with some light grassy notes. Aromas of hay and grass seem to quickly give way to sugary smells.

22. Pours a murky medium amber with a creamy white head. Mild caramel nose. Creamy medium body with mild carb. Soft sweet finish. Unremarkable.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Bottle: A large white bubbly froth sits atop a cloudy orangish hued glass of goodness. Very interesting yeasty flavor, with some lemony/peppery/floral accents. Maybe a bit of cloves thrown in. Very sticky... flavor is retained for some time after finishing. I detect some other spices as well... hard to put my finger/tongue on it. Very enjoyable.

Sampled at CBC and at Brent’s recently. Orange pour with a small off-white head. Fruity Brett aroma, some spice, light doughy/cereal malts. Light Brett, a touch of tart in the flavor, citrus fruits, hints of spice and malts. Not bad.

Great appearance with huge head and lacing. Aroma hinted of citrus, grains, and a tart yeast. Spicey and tart on the palate, finish clean. Very enjoyable and unique style when done right.

"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."

In short: A nice barnyard almost funky golden ale. Highly sessionable pleasant surprise..
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed fresh the day of purchase
The look: Almost clear light golden body topped by a small persistent white head
In long: Nose is pleasantly farmhouse/wild and osier basket. Taste of vanilla cookies, funky barnyard, leather, horse saddle, citrus fruits. I could drink pints and pints of this stuff. Ridiculously underrated. I bought this beer to drink at the hotel when I had to spend a night in Atlanta because my connection flight to Rome was delayed. This was because of the infamous 2010 Eyjafjallajökull volcano eruption. Better known as simply the 2010 Iceland volcano eruption. For obvious reason.

This was a good beer. Pours a cloudy golden broth, then settles to a beutiful orange tint. Good Lacing qualities. An almost honey like scent that goes well with the sweet-bitterness. This is also a good cooking beer, oddly enough..
